2) Knit some sweaters! Try for 5 (one more than last year) adult sweaters?
3) Knit more socks!! Especially stripey ones. :D
4) Knit more from stash... yeah, yeah, I said that last year and basically bought yarn at least once a week from Stitches through, like, September? lol.
5) Lose weight. I joined WW again, but I'm just doing the online thing for now.
6) Continue to work on my finances.
