New Year's Resolutions!

Happy New Year to all my fiber fiends out there!  It has definitely been a busy year, hopefully yours has been as productive feeling as mine.  I'm still carrying a little munchkin in my belly but 2 weeks left and I'll have the insane pleasure of being a first time mom, cue the vomit in hair!

Well I went through what I wanted to accomplish last year and here is what I actually did accomplish.

For The Fiber Seed:
* I created more than 20 new colorways last year.
* Have my yarn in 5 yarn shops.
* Beef up my knitting and crochet accessories stock for my Etsy Store.

For Me personally:
* Complete two projects a month regardless of when I started them.

Great accomplishments right?  Well, I had a couple of lofty ones that I didn't quite finish, for one reason or another, so those get added to this years list along with some new goals.

This Year:

For The Fiber Seed:
* Create a new line of yarn.
* Create pattern support for my current line of yarn (Sprout) as well as the new line. (I've already gotten a jump on that one!)
* Get my yarn into 10 more yarn shops.
* Keep a running stock in my Etsy Store for knitting and crocheting accessories.
* Design more patterns, you might see wee ones sized patterns too...I will have a little model at my finger tips.
* Finish my class on writing knitting patterns for multiple sizes.
* Publish a book of patterns.

For Me personally:
* Finish all the projects that I started last year but didn't finish because I wouldn't be able to wear them because of the impending baby bump.
* Finish 2 projects a month regardless of when I started them.
* If I start a project it has to use some of my stash. (Even if it's using my stash as a provisional cast on. (::Mischievous smile::)

So here is my proof that I have already started on my resolutions:  I wrote a pattern, for Sprout, in the purple haze colorway!
The Crocheted Beaded Mitts were made for all you crocheters that said, Lindsay we want cute stuff too! You can find the pattern on Ravelry, Craftsy, or Etsy.  Here's the parting shot for you. This is going to be a good year!
