- Knit myself 1-2 sweaters.
Finished knitting one (my first CustomFit sweater). I bought buttons this weekend, so I’ll be sewing those on and blocking the button band soon.
I have plans to knit Dalriada next using some Rowan Calmer I’ve had in my stash since 2008. I’ve already swatched, so I just need to decide which size to knit and whether I need to make any changes.
- Knit socks, at least 6 pairs for me.
Five pairs total, and four of those were for me.
- Knit all 4 M Club patterns.
The first two are completed. Clue #4 for the third one (Magia) comes out tomorrow, but I only have clue #1 complete. I’m working on something for Knit Picks, so I probably won’t get back to Magia until that’s finished.
- Knit at least 2 blankets (1 for me).
Chrysanthemum is still only 70% done, but I’ve had a lot of things keeping me busy. I’m hoping I’ll want to knit blankets more once Fall rolls around.
- Try to not have too many WIPs.
I only have four WIPs right now, so I’m happy with that.
- Knit some Xmas decorations.
I haven’t thought about this at all since my last check in. Ha.
- Only buy yarn that is cast on right away.
I haven’t done as well on this since my last update. I think I’ll be able to make a better go at it after Stitches Midwest next month. I think I’ve only gotten two yarns since the end of March that I don’t have specific projects lines up from.
- Stop buying yarn online.
I had a credit at Jimmy Beans Wool, so I bought a couple of skeins to knit a Monster Face Hat. I also tossed three skeins of (clearance) yarn into a Knit Picks order to get free shipping, but I have that lined up to knit a Rib Warmer.
- Get more self-striping sock yarn.
I will keep my eyes peeled for some at Stitches this year.
- Destash some stuff.
Still no sales.
- Work with scraps.
Still no. Been too busy with larger projects.
- Use my handspun.
Still haven’t spun at all.
- Reduce fiber stash (by spinning).
- Don’t buy fiber.
I’m still doing well on this!
- Use my spindles.
- Make at least 2 more quilts.
Meh. I haven’t felt like sewing or planning for a quilt at all.
- Sew a small project or two.
Nope. My crafty room still need to be cleaned, too.
- Publish a knitting pattern.
Well, I definitely haven’t done as well with yarn buying since my last update, but I’m kinda OK with that. I’m mostly just happy that I’m still knitting a lot and haven’t gone off the deep end buying yarn. Wish me luck at Stitches!
