New Year's Knitting/Crochet Resolutions - Stashdown Info Too!

Now that we are starting new year we'd love to hear what some of your thoughts are about your year ahead with knitting and/or crocheting.  Some of our thoughts are:
  1. Knit down some of that stash!
  2. Pull out and finish at least 2 UFO's...maybe more...
  3. Knit or crochet something a bit outside the comfort zone...maybe try steeking
  4. Try a color outside my own palette!
  5. Learn a new technique!
The list can go on and on - but let us know what some of your resolutions for 2012 will be!!

Also - we will be announcing the winner of the 2011 Fresh Purls Stash Down this week!  Since this was a big help getting yarn out of the house let's go for 12 projects with stash yarn in 2012!  So if you're interested here are the guidelines:
  1. To qualify as stash yarn the yarn must have been purchased before November 1, 2011.
  2. If you need to purchase new yarn for the project that’s fine, but 50% of the project must come from your stash OR use 100% of the selected stashed yarn.
  3. Only projects begun on or after January 1, 2012 count toward the stash down.
Post your projects on Ravelry and let us know on our gurls of fresh purls group as you complete them.  Use the following as one of the tags on the project:  fp-stashdown-2012.
Here's to a Happy, Healthy and Wonderful New Year!!!
