So, on top of blogging, working, homemaking and couponing (more on that later!), I have compiled a quick list of some gorgeous knitted projects I want to accomplish this year. I decided to pick six, and hopefully I will get them all completed in the first six months. After that, I’ll pick another six and see if I can get them done as well. Here’s my list!
Two Christmas stockings — one for me and one for Michael. I did one for Naomi in 2010 and I would really like to make one in greens for Michael and one in a pretty multi-colored yarn. This one is pretty high on my list of knits, because I want them done before Christmas.
I have wanted to make this adorable sleep sack forever, so as soon as my stockings are done, this is going on the needles!
A beautiful, mindless knit – a chunky minimal scarf that will definitely keep someone warm and toasty!
A cute and functional knitted scarflet — great for Michael, who likes to sleep with a scarf wrapped around his neck when he feels a flu bug coming on.
I normally am not a big fan of knitted purses, but this one is just too cute, and would be perfect for Naomi. I think I’ll add a handle, though.
And, just to blow your mind, here’s a project I am totally NOT taking on this year — the knitted baby sling! This sounds like a genius invention but trust me — waaaaaay too complicated for my beginner’s knitter brain!
What’s on your sticks this year? Got any big projects? Let me know!
