Because I’m trying to plan my knitting for next year because (1) I’m not buying yarn next year except for a few special occasions, (2) I have a tendency to do test knits, especially for Laura Aylor since I love her patterns, and then things from my own queue don’t get done and (3) I do much better when I have a list and a plan, I’m making a list of projects for next year. Here’s what I’m thinking and if any of you want to join in, please let me know.
I’m going to plan on knitting an adult project and a child’s project each month and anyone who wants to join me for any or all . . you’re welcome to join in and we can knit them together kinda as a knit along! Not all of these projects will get finished within a month, though that’s my goal, but on the months that we have a hat or gloves, maybe we can catch up on the previous month’s note quite finished project. If you want to do one or two or all, that’s fine.
So, if you’re wanting to learn to knit, get busy . . you have almost two whole months to learn or brush up on your skills.
I’m going to list my planned projects for each month and about the middle of the preceding month, I’ll do a blog post about possible yarns for the next month’s project and share links to shops that may have a sale or a good price on the yarn that would work for that project, and discuss the next project so if anyone wants to knit along, you’ll have a couple of weeks to get your yarn.
It’s a very lofty list and I’ll be doing good to get half of it done but hey . . if you don’t try, you surely won’t get it done, right?
- Adult – Chunky Cable Hat
- Child – Mya’s Jacket (I did have Paprika vest here but didn’t have yarn for it so I switched it!)
Other projects I really want to do and may try to work on as “extra” projects, and, I do have the yarn for all of the above projects and the ones listed below:
At least I won’t run out of things to do for quite a while! 🙂
