Here We Go Again!!

Welcome to 2018!!

This year as with many years I started out the year with what I list as my new year accomplishments.  Instead of resolving to change things in my life, I like to think of things I would like to accomplish in the new year.  Now that I am a knitter, the list is definitely more knitting related.  Plus I also added some shop accomplishments I would like to have this year as well.  See I am a planner and planning my year out or having things I want to do over the course of the year keeps me excited and able to live in the now.  Many people think I am crazy.  I myself often times think I am crazy, but honestly I love sitting down and creating a plan of attack.

Last year I did not have a knitting plan, which is why I only finished 4 whole projects!!!  AAAAAH!!!! Granted one of those projects was a 6 skein shawl (the infamous Om Shawl), but can I really consider that even finished when I haven’t blocked, weaved in the ends, or sewn the buttons on yet?  I’m putting it in my finished in 2017 column, but I almost feel like I’m cheating with that one. Almost…

Are you ready?? Drum roll please!!

The projects I would like to complete in 2018 are:

  • Hue Shift Afghan by Kerin Dimeler-Laurence
  • Brave at Heart Shawl by Lydia Brown
  • Hoarfrost by Andrea Mowry
  • Vintage Prim by Andrea Mowry
  • Time Keepers by Lydia Brown
  • Tincture by Andrea Mowry
  • Another Om Shawl by Andrea Mowry
  • The Girl from the Grocery Store by Joji Locatelli
  • Mock Colorwork Fleckle Mitts by Estella Haines
  • Whirlygig by Wallyone Knitting (WIP)
  • Lineas Cowl by Elizabeth Suarez
  • Tan House Brook Shawl by Jennifer Lassonde
  • Handbrake by Kay & Dan Jones (WIP)
  • A pair of socks…pattern yet to be decided on
  • And if I still have time and my hands haven’t fallen off yet, Finish other WIPs cause I only have a half dozen or so of those as well.

See, I told you I was crazy!!! I’m sure you are looking at that list and thinking, “she only finished 4 projects in 2017!!” I myself look at the list and think I am completely crazy,  but we never know what we can accomplish if we don’t try!! What’s the worst that can happen?

The good news is I already have yarn for most of these projects (don’t tell my hubby).

The only thing left is to cast on and go for it. Wish me luck!!
