I’m not really one for resolutions.
But there are some things that are vaguely lined up in my mind, if not for this year, then hopefully to do at some time. You never know, this might be the time!
In knitting, there aren’t many things I don’t just get on with if I have some instructions. However, I’ve never done steeks. This means knittng and then cutting through what you just knit :o! Absolutely traditional in Scottish and Scandinavian knitting and yet just the thought still gives me an uneasy feeling, even though I totally understand the theory and the use…
In books, there is one in particular that I’m determined to reread, apart from the usual TBR pile that accumulates, and that is Tolstoy’s War and Peace. I am famed for having read it in a long weekend when I was 12…goodness knows how well I understood it, but I think it’s about time I went back to it! I like reading things I’ve read before, as I usually see the story from a different angle anyway.
I’ve never really learnt to play an instrument and since my daughter’s Celtic harp has been sitting around getting dusty for x years, now, why not take advantage and see whether I can do anything with it? The sound is breathtaking even without being able to play, so how much better if I could really get a tune out of it?!
Lastly (for the moment, I’m not particularly ambitious, either! LOL), fitness has never been a big aim for me, and neither have I ever felt any desire to climb mountains. However, a lot more walking for both health and pleasure does figure on my list of “wants”, and all it requires is to get up and go…
PS All the very best for the new year to everybody out there, both commenters and lurkers 🙂 Make it happen!!
