Happy New Year! Wishing you all much fun and joy this new year.
I saw this on Apples and Cheese and thought it would be fantastic to come up with some of my own Craftolutions for 2013.
So here goes:
1. Keep a vanilla sock on the go at all times.
I often have found in the past year that it is hard to find a moment to craft something complicated even if it is just a little lacey so I figure I might knit more if I have a vanilla sock to pick up whenever I can.
2. In a strange contradiction to item 1, I am going to try and finish off some lace that I started a while ago. I had started a Cheshire Cat Stole years ago and I would like to finish it. I did get a little lost in the lace so I really ought to rip it or get it going again properly. I used some beautiful Sundara Lace yarn so it would be a shame not to finish it off.
3. Improve my sewing skills and make a mini-quilt on our sewing machine. It doesn’t have to be a hugely complicated one – maybe just some squares. Jeanne has one with squares on in her guest room which I like
4. Knit a Betty Mouat Cowl. The pattern is for a lightweight version but I have a lot of DK and worsted single skeins hanging around, I thought it would be a great project for those.
I might sound like I’m aiming low but I think these four goals are plenty enough for the year. Life was a bit too interesting at times in 2012 but I did manage some lovely ones with friends who came to visit and am looking forward to more visits this year to come. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to snatch moments of crafting amongst busy-ness.
