So it's time for my new list!
I'm doing what a lot of people are doing this year, and being much more general with my list. It will still have specific patterns on it, but also just some categories. I've linked yarn to most of my projects, as one of my aims is to work mainly from stash, and at the very least have more yarns out than in this year
Socks - 8 pairs
Hopsox - in DT Craft & Design Undyed High Twist 75/25 merino/nylon superwash
Speleology Socks - in Woolhunter Working Sock
At least 6 more pairs - either from my library or my own design, using these yarns:
I Knit and Dye Horses
Lal Bear Bounce Extra
Knit One, Crochet Too Soxx Appeal
The Uncommon Thread Tough SockJelliebean Stardust Yarn
Other 8 items
Beekeeper's Quilt - 25/384 hexipuffs - in various blue sock yarn scraps
Tubby by Anna Hrachovec
Arielle by Kim Hargreaves - in Rowan Fine Milk Cotton
(Get off my) Cloud - Kate Davis - in some blue acryllic from a job lot on ebay
A fairisle pattern - possibly gloves or a hat - in various colours of Shetland 4ply
Use at least 3 of these yarns (pattern to be decided):
Acryllic sport weight from a job lot on ebay
Knit Picks Shadow Tonal Lace
Crookabeck Angoras Baby Goat Mohair DK
DK pure wool from a job lot on ebay
SMC Select Extra Soft Merino DK
Hayfield Bonus Aran
Malabrigo Yarn Sock
Preemie items, and other charity knits using stash yarn
Designs - 4 published
I have ideas for about 7 or 8 designs, mainly socks, and I would like to get at least 4 of them knitted up and published as a pattern
Crochet - 2 projects
A couple of projects to practise - probably from Creepy Cute Crochet as gifts for friends
Spinning and Dying - 2 projects
I have some yarn that is partially spun which I want to spin up, and I would also like to tackle the fleece I have, get it washed and carded, and spin some of it. Plus, I want to try out the new spinning features on Ravelry!
I would also like to have a go at dying the yarn I spin, as well as some other undyed yarn that I have hanging around.
This section is very up for change, as long as I do some spinning, but I'm starting with the stuff I'm not too fussed about if it all goes wrong.
Sewing - 2 items
I'm not ending to complete either of these, but I would like to do some work on at least one of my sewing projects Map of Yorkshire and Gran's embroidery
So that's my list. It's deliberately long, as it's everything I would like to do in the year, so I'm a bit more open with what I feel like doing. I have to say, unless a miracle happens, I don't see it getting finished, but I would like to make some progress on it.
I've already started on a sock design, using the I Knit and Dye Horses blue yarn pictured earlier, and have the design written up, with one sock knit. However, I've submitted it to a magazine for consideration (eeep!), so no pictures I'm afraid.
I did get a very cute certificate this week though
It;s for volunteering to teach some beginner classes at my University last year. Don't you love our society name?
I was going to update on my life, but I'll probably do that later this week, as this post is long enough already!
