Andi’s post about her 2014 knitting goals has gotten me thinking about some projects I’d like to tackle in the new year. 2013 was a year of small projects that could be completed in a few hours to a single weekend. It helped to keep me engaged and made sure that I always had something new on my needles. This year, I want to take on a couple of bigger projects. I want to make sweaters for myself and the kids. I haven’t made a sweater since 2008, and it took over a year to finish. Hopefully, I will be able to complete them quicker this time around.
For myself and my daughter, I am in love with the matching patterns Ease and Abate by Alicia Plummer. For the cuddle baby, the cozy cardigan, Mossy Jacket by Fawn Pea.
I also want to take a bash at improving my skills with a few pairs of grown-up socks; maybe work on a couple crochet critters. And who can resist bunny slippers?
Aside from knitting, I mean to learn needle felting. I want to make little soft sculptures. Of what, I’m not sure yet, but I will come up with something.
I’m going to stop there before I get ahead of myself. If I plan too much, then it gets daunting and nothing gets done. I was informed that my camera is back and waiting for me to get out and pick it up, so I should have some lovely progress photos for you all throughout the coming year.
Happy 2014, all!
