This is my 50th post! *blush* I know, I'm such a newbie. Anyway, I felt it appropriate to lay down the knitting projects I'd like to complete this year*, that way I can look back on them in December and laugh my ass off. These are not in any particular order.
1. Complete the Toddler Jumper.
2. Three top-down sweaters for kids (two for my nephews and one for my son) from navy blue and gray Rowan All Seasons Cotton in the stash. (These are for Christmas, and if I complete them in time, I'd like to do one for one of my niece's too.)
3. More socks. Generic, but good. I think I can plan to have a pair of socks going pretty much all the time. I'd like to give a pair to my mother with her Christmas present. Maybe for my sisters' birthdays in the fall, too. (I haven't told my family that this blog exists, so they don't read it! I can write whatever I want regarding presents.)
4. Complete the Log Cabin blanket.
5. Figure out if the adult Tomten (aka egg jacket) is salvageable and either fix or rip.
6. Complete one Lisa Lloyd design for myself, probably this one.
7. Determine if making the Trellis jacket (right) is a good idea. I've loved it for years, always planned to make it, but is it too boxy to be flattering on a suburban mom? Your honest opinions are quite welcome! I've got Beaverslide (light heathered gray) that I think will work.
8. Sketch out and plan a top-down cardigan for myself with my first-ever colorwork. One color, but still.
9. Complete my Central Park Hoodie. It's hanging out with a back and one front complete. Oh the shame of it. I really need to finish this one--I think I'll wear it a lot.
*Ok, after writing this, I felt it important to add that I know there is no way I can get all of this done in six months, but it's nice to have a list of the projects always bouncing around in my head.
