Another New Year's Inspiration

Sharon at Knitknacks came up with a wonderfully inspirational idea on her blog today: Unresolutions. For those of us who don't generally join in the custom of making lists of resolutions we probably won't keep, making unresolutions seems like something we can all cheerfully do, and stick to, for all of 2005. Who knows? Some unresolutions may be such great ones that we'll keep them into 2006 as well.

Here are a few I'd like to add to the pile:

  • I will not apply to be on a reality show. Heck, I won't even watch a reality show!
  • I will not follow directions blindly, especially when I really do know better.
  • I will not add fried chicken and Budweiser to my diet.
  • I will not read tabloids, except to scan the covers while waiting in line at the grocery-store checkout.
  • I will not buy anything featured on a late-night TV commercial.
  • I will not take up the banjo or the accordion.
  • I will not knit anything out of my "pet peeve" yarns.

I'm still too much of a newbie knitter to swear off any techniques just yet, though some appeal more to me than others. We'll see what happens when I get there.

Anyway, happy New Year, all, and have fun keeping all your unresolutions for 2005.

Wait a minute...not even a reality knitting show? Think about it...a group of knitters are locked up in a yarn shop for a week. The goal is to follow some complex set of directions to create some magnificant garment. Of course some knitters will try to sabotage others. We'll all take sides. We get to vote someone out every night. Someone will get stabbed with a poisoned knitting needle. Doesn't this sound like great fun?
