Knitting Talk Back: Cool People Make the Rules

What rules have you/do you make for yourself for knitting? Do they help or hinder you? 

Are you on a stash-down or yarn diet? Are there any exceptions? 

Do you make yourself finish something before you start something new? 

What goals did you set for yourself this year and how are you doing so far? 

Non-Knitting Segments: 

What a Crock: 

Here's a picture of my version of this recipe:

  1. I really enjoy your show! Designing Women is still my favorite show. I have been wanting to watch Steel Magnolias with my teen. Also, keep the crock recipes as part of the show.
