Normally I dislike sharing yearly goals, but for some reason, this year is different.
First, I learned last year that joining project specific knit-a-longs is not for me. Invariably, as soon as I join, I no long want to make the item.
So, I’ve decided to participate in a year long gift-a-long, started by the wonderful Marce.
The goal is avoid that last minute stress of gift knitting. Even if I have a goal of knitting one thing a month, I’m still ahead of the game.
I’ve also decided to join Dave
in his ‘Spinning My Wheel
‘ quest. But I’m gonna call it ‘Spinning My Spindle’.
At any rate, I’ll be spinning along and trying to keep track of my spinning efforts. But sadly, I’ve hardly spun anything this year. But the year is not over, right?
And I have one more goal for this year. To knit a sweater – something I’ve always wanted to do. I did consider making The Cobblestone Sweater
, but now Tiennie
has kindly shared her pattern for The Fog Sweater
, which I love very much. But that’s a decision for later. First, I’m reading ‘The Sweater Workshop
‘ that I got from the library. I’m up to reading about two-color knitting and stranding. I figure, if I can get some comprehension about the different techniques first, when I actually start working on that sampler, it won’t be as scary. At least that’s my hope.
And so as to not to be completely void of photos, here’s a photo of my scarf-in-progress.
