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!

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!
