Knit-Off, 2012!

This post is a part of

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!

  • I have been learning how to make and then working to perfect socks with heels. It has been fun. I am hoping to post pictures soon.

  • I really wish I knew how to knit! I see so many cute things that are knitted.

    • Learning to knit is really easy. It just takes a couple of attempts. Once you get your hands on a pair of needles and a soft ball of wool, you’ll never go back.
