I’ve decided to join the Come Blog Along Year of Projects! I’m hoping that this will really cut down my stash and enhance my wardrobe since I’ll be knitting mostly sweaters. It helps that now I have a sweater machine so I should be able to breeze through most of these patterns.
Okay here’s my list so far:
- Lydia Bennet Secret Stockings
- Frivolous Socks
- Rubber Duck Socks (I really don’t know if I want to make a pair for me or for husband. I don’t think I can quite manage 4 at a time!)
- Show Off Stranded Socks
Cowls/Scarves/Neckthings/Shawls (This section is a total “maybe”)
- Skoodlet (For either Mom or a sister, haven’t decided)
- Swallowtail Shawl
- A lighter weight shawl for Mom, perhaps?
Hands and Head
So it’s quite a list but I am not aiming for all of it to be completed, except for the WIPs. If I could get one of each category done, I’ll be happy. I also want to knit up (or at least swatch up) a bunch of sweater designs I’ve sketched out. They’re all inspired by a cast of characters from a book series I loved as a kid and I’m really excited about the idea. That’s all I want to say just in case it never gets off the ground.
If any of my fair readers have made any of the patterns I’ve listed and can offer a pearl or two of wisdom in the comments, I’m much obliged. Is anyone else participating?
