Resolution 2012 - My DIY Project

My DIY Project - January
knit. knit. purl. purl.

For years, I've admired people who could sew, knit, glue, nail,... all in all create things. I've always wanted to learn to make things with my hands; that's why learning how to knit has been a goal of mine for years.
Like I said in my last post, I finally got myself some yarn and needles to get started on this goal. It all started 2 weeks ago. My boo and I didn't know what to get each other this Christmas so we figured out this plan: he was going to pay for part of the materials needed for me to finally start knitting and I was going to knit him a scarf as my first project!

The picture above is the result of 7 days of "work"! (I didn't knit everyday, let's be real.) I had a rough start with switching between knit and purl but it's all good now. I already feel so proud of this progress that I decided on a resolution for this new year:
I will complete 12 DIY projects in 2012

One project for each month! And not just knitting, could be anything: clothing, accessories, home decorations, who knows! I'm already very excited about this resolution! What about you, any resolutions for this years?
