I've been looking forward to 2015. I have made a decision. Well, more than two decisions were made. The only things I will be starting will be for me. I will be finishing my UFOs. I will no longer be teaching at Michaels. As of April 1, my classes there are done.
I came to this first decision after 2 things happened, I listened to the Knitmore girls podcast, episode 311 in which they talk about being Grinch-y during the holiday season and only knitting for yourself and after I went to get ready for a round of family holiday parties and learned I had "nothing" to wear. OK, not entirely true but my general wardrobe for work for my day job is jeans and t-shirts with sweatshirts. My teaching wardrobe is black slacks and beige shirts or the opposite, not necessarily the most festive in appearance or feeling even with jewelry or accessories that I don't have in abundance.
So in Jasmin Knitmore style, I have made a decision that this year I will do only new projects for myself and I will be working on finishing projects that have been sitting languishing in my UFO bin. This will also gain me quite a few Christmas presents for this coming holiday. As I finish things I will be sharing pictures and who will get what.
As to the third decision, this was not made lightly and doesn't need to be gone into. I like them all very much and will miss seeing them on a regular basis. They made my time there extremely good for me. I wish them all the best with future endeavors. I know I will be stopping in from time to time to visit too.
