Personally I’m not very good at New Year Resolutions. But this year I’m making them for the Natty Knits business and here they are:
I will fine tune my pattern making process . All too often I’m rushing to finish a pattern, usually for some imagined deadline and somewhere in the process I manage to not make a tiny change. Two weeks later when the heat has died down, I find the mistake, kick myself and change the pattern. Then I have to tell everyone it was wrong, which is not very nice. So I will make a pattern protocol and I will stick to it.
I will do some marketing. This one still feels somewhat nebulous. A marketing plan is no mean feat and I am at a loss where to start. At least if I resolve to do it, I’ll be forced to stop hiding from it, probably.
I will stop trying to predict the future. You may have noticed that I’m always telling my lovely blog readers that a pattern is on it’s way (especially a free one). But the free patterns don’t always come. This isn’t because I’m telling you fibs or because I’m mean and nasty. It’s just because I don’t have the time to do everything I want. I actually get very excited about the free patterns and I can’t wait to share them, but there’s no point sharing them unless they’re right.
Will I be able to stick to these? Will the marketing plan simply be too much for my small brain? Will I be promising you a pattern I haven’t written, tested or photographed yet?
Only 2010 can tell.
Happy New Year!
