Have you ever set goals for yourself with your knitting? Such as to learn new techniques, complete certain projects, or to knit more? In this week's episode of Technique Tuesday, Kelley reflected on the knitting goals she set for 2020 and how she did, plus went over how you too can set knitting goals. 

Tips for Making Knitting Goals for the New Year

Kelley recommends to key things when setting goals – make your goals clear and measurable, and don't overdo it! Stick to Kelley's 3-2-1 rule when planning your goals and projects for 2021. 

Kelley's 3-2-1 Rule: 

3: Knit at least 3 Projects using the new skill.

2: No more than 2 new skills on a specific project.

1: Knit at least 1 hour daily. 

Use this rule to master new skills and make 2021 the year you create some amazing new projects!
