Earlier this week I shared with you mit engagement i hækling blogging i 2013. I also shared some of my specific plans and goals for the blog this year. I dag har jeg tænkte jeg ville dele min egen personlige crafting mål for 2013.

Not Necessarily Resolutions

I mentioned in one of those earlier posts that a lot of people don’t like to make New Year’s Resolutions anymore because there’s a negative association with the whole process. You know how it goesyou make the commitment on New Year’s Day and by the end of January you haven’t worked towards meeting the goals and you just feel bad.

I don’t feel that way about my blogging commitments but I’m hesitant to set truly specificresolutionsfor my crafting goals. En af grundene er på grund af den samme negative bibetydning … Jeg indstille flere store mål sidste år og ikke levede op til dem. (Min 365 projekt ebbede ud efter et par måneder, som gjorde min plan at Overvinde My Stash og gøre Velgørenhed Hæklet).

Jeg har ikke nødvendigvis overveje de projekter fiaskoer, ved den måde. Jeg tror, ​​at gøre disse mål hjalp mig organisere mine intentioner og få nogle gode ting ud af det, herunder et par donationer til velgørenhed og en bedre kontrol over mit garn stash. Men det fik mig også indset, at super specifikke mål at møde store udfordringer er ikke nødvendigvis vejen at gå for min crafting liv.

Og det bringer mig til den anden grund, som jeg ikke fastsætte specifikke håndværk resolutioner … hækling er min afslappende tilflugtssted, ikke min opgave! (Ja, I blog and write about crochet as a job but that’s something different entirely!) I want crochet to be my place of freedom and creativity and not a place of excessive commitments. That’s one of the reasons I didn’t join in with the new year of År for projekter (despite thinking it’s a good thing to do).

The Loose Goals for 2013

Så, I’m not making super specific craft goals for those reasons but I think it’s totally fine to set some good intentions and organize my thoughts on things I’d like to try to accomplish in crochet.

Først og fremmest, I want this goal to be my guiding principle in all things I do with crochet:

Hækl er en måde at helbrede mig selv og andre. I will always come to it with a creative and open mind and a desire to use it to do good in some small way.

As for some of the specific things I’d like to learn, try or complete using crochet:

  • Learn a new technique. I really enjoy the broomstick lace that I learned in 2012 and although I don’t have a specific technique in mind I want to learn at least one new thing in crochet this year.
  • Take a crochet class. I’ve never taken one from anyone and I want to see what it’s like even though that’s not typically the way I learn best.
  • Do a large motif-based project. I always say I don’t like weaving in ends and so I never do these but I want to have completed one in my lifetime so I’m going to plan on it! Maybe I’ll use seamless or joing-as-you-go crochet.

And there are also some other things related to the craft that are on my intentions / “wish list”:

  • Visit more Bay Area yarn stores to get a better sense of what type of crochet-friendly LYS options there are here.
  • Go to a yarn district or yarn store in a foreign country!
  • Learn to use the new drop spindel I got in 2012.
  • Try dyeing yarn at least once.
  • Practice opmærksomme hækling. I want to use crafting to be more present.

Jeg tror, "mål" are better than resolutions. Sometimes we get overzealous with resolutions - determining to lose 15 pounds in 3 weeks is completely unreasonable (unless you have back to back bouts of the flu, and then it might be 20! :D). Goals are better, IMHO, because they are more fluid. My goals this year are to sew, krog, and knit more, and there are other personal goals as well (getting healthy, getting our website up, etc.).


Good luck with these goals. My main one is stay organized. I am doing several year long CAL's and continue to test on Ravelry, just don;t want to get overwhelmed by it. I am loving the challenges given to me. Keeping all this in order plus what my 3 children have going on and maintaining that balance will be a lot.


Hi good luck with your goals for 2013 mine are to do a free flower pattern and a granny square pattern every week though 2013 and to finish off some bigger projects that I had to shelve in 2012, not to much so with luck I might achieve it lol


Wonderful crafting goals! I already think you are well on your way to your guiding principle ... you do so much good for the crochet community!!


I like your idea of 'Soft' goals. I'm still working on my list, on the spot as usual!

Thanks for the post!!


I think you are very wise to have some open goals that are more about learning then a very specific project - and also to keep crochet relaxing and not a chore! I agree that even when we don't finish those projects we can learn something!
