Hopes for 2009 - Another year of Sweaters!

What does 2009 hold for me? I hope I will finish a lot of my started knitted projects,and most of all finish my PhD. Renovate the kitchen. Im just great to initiate and start things. My energy is so strong then, but then enduring all to the end. I mean, I think I have so many sweaters that is "almost done". Last year it was the year of the sock. This year (and I think every second year) my goal is do sweaters, finish them, and do that little extra. To conclude this: Finishing, having Closure - THAT must be the most important task for me. Here is the current list of UFO's that I have in my mind to finish....LOL!

Wedding Cardigan (Hisdahl) - Sleeves and brim
Aachen a Bliss hommage Cardi - Sleeves, neck, hood
Freeform Artsy sweater - a lot

One-threaded Färgcraft Brioche Cardi - one front, collar, sleeves
Lopi cardi - make buttonhole rim, collar and pockets

Bohus Vildäpple - sleeves and body (picture)
Bohus Yellow Lace collar - most of it (just frogged)

Mittens

Other

Yeah - it is fun to knit! And finish!
I guess I do not need to start new stuff, but starting is fun. When you fall in love with a pattern, it is half done in an instant. On the new list is definitely another Starmore... maybe Strathglass or Rheingold..and another Hisdahl.. the cotton-one is the plan, and maybe the rest of the Lopi... and the Kabuto yarn have yelled to be handled. Another snuggly sweater? Hmmmm... I must knit those socks ....and... Ahh.. great to have choices! I love lists and plans. Happy new year to you too!

God fortsättning på det nya året:)

du är som vanligt outstanding:) jag tycker att du hann med att avsluta en hel del tröjor, förutom alla sockar du stickade förra året:) men din lista på wip's är låååååååång, och jag ser verkligen fram emot att få se hur dom växer, och att få se hur dom ser ut i färdigt skick eftersom flera av dom är väldigt vackra tröjor:)

You are so very very brave to list all of your WIPs. I don't think I can take that step yet without feeling a bit guilty. You are so right about starting projects--finding the pattern makes me feel like it's done already. Good luck, looks like a busy year!

Hej! Vilken lista! Jag skrattade glatt :) när jag såg den! Vilket bra argument jag har när sönerna säger "Ska du börja på något nytt igen?".
Det ska bli en "inventering" hos mig också så småningom. Det finns ett och annat här med!
Men under tiden väntar jag också med spänning att få se de vackra tröjorna så småningom.
