2013 is my year to have the freedom to make what I want, I've got lots of lovely projects hanging around in my studio. There's a group on Ravelry- there's link in my sidebar- that documents a year of projects via their blogs which starts tomorrow, July 1st. My list will build up as the year goes on, will cover all the crafts I love and a bit of the garden renovation too. I'm jotting down ideas for the first quarter.
The basic premise behind my list is to use tools I already own, materials from my stashes and to use patterns from my library, or design my own creations. To try and make a dent in my yarn stash, I plan to use a skein of fingering/ sock weight yarn each month and a pattern from my Ravelry library
First up on my 2013/14 list is a Ravelry knitalong hosted by Kristen Kapur. It runs July to September featuring her lovely shawl designs, I've chosen Unsinkable and some gorgeous yarn from my stash. The question is, do I stay up late tonight or get up early tomorrow to cast on?
Other projects from Ravelry on the list for July through to September:
- A couple of shawls from the lovely Boo Knits, Resolute Shawl and Sweet Dreams
- Renaissance Shawl, designed by Little Green Dragon
- Lyra, designed by Herbert Niebling- I may not finish this one in the first quarter
- Wedding Ring Shawl by Sharon Miller- I'm not aiming to finish this, I'm aiming for regular progress
