Since I am making all kinds of plans, it’s only fitting I talk about my knitting plans for 2019. This is a loose plan, not sure how it will flow, so I am just putting it on paper. I will adapt as needed through the year.
First up: 2 head/neck wear items a month. I have a running list of 12 hats and 12 cowls, actually only 7-9 on each list right now, but I will add as I find candidates. 5 of those hats will be for the Great-N’s for their Christmas Hats. I think I am doing Nordic style for them this year. So the plan is to do 1 hat and 1 cowl a month. Then at the end of the year I will have some cowls and hats to gift at Christmas!
Knitting Challenge: 12 items in my queue that I want to knit this year.
- Slippers for BioGirl
- Slippers for her Car Beau
- Toddler sweater for Mak
- Baby sweater for Aub
- Felted Pressing Mat using up leftover wools
- Finish Connor’s Blanket Squares
- Fallen Cloud Shawl for me
- Humulus Sweater for me
- Strange Brew Cardigan for me
- Snowfling Mittens for me
- Baby sweater for my 2nd cousin’s 4th baby due in June
- Finish Cable Shawl by turning it into a poncho
3 of those items are already cast on and just need to be done. But Fallen Cloud might get a rethink. The yarn is hairy, so the pattern might not work with it. Plus, I messed it up at the beginning, even though you can’t tell. We will see if it gets ripped. Hopefully by the end of 2019 I will have some sweaters/items for me and gifts for others.
