Louise's Blogmas Day 23 - Future project planning
Future project planning
Do you plan projects or just go with the flow?
What I have been making?
I finished my first Monet sock last night and cast on the second one straight away. Opal yarn really does knit up so well.
Make 9 in 2019
On Instagram one of the more popular hashtags this time of year is the #make9. The aim is to plan 9 handmade projects you want to make in the upcoming year and it can be any craft you like. I think it would be too ambiguous to aim to knit 9 garments in a year so I am planning a mixture of garments and accessories.
The first challenge will be to finish some big long term projects;
Penguono by Stephen West - I am getting closer to finishing this project but I am finding the sleeves are taking ages.
The Throwback Cardigan by Andrea Mowry - All the colour work is done I just need to finish the body and sleeves.
Stephen West Mkal - Texture time - Half done but still a massive amount of knitting left to do
Projects on my #makenine2019 (No doubt this will change constantly throughout the year)
Peeky Cat Socks by Marna Gilligan- I have the pattern and yarn ready
Julenatt by Skeindeer Knits - This is a pattern for some colour work Christmas/winter mittens. I really want to try and improve my colour work this year so I think a smaller project like this will be great practice.
The Weekender by Andrea Mowry
Memory Keeper’s Shawl by Pauliina Karru
Textures Unite by Stephen West
Jelly Rolls - Mara Catherine Bryner
Judoka by Lia Moya
What the Fade by Andrea Mowry
Betty & Judy Lodge Sweater by Amy Appel
I am sure this will change throughout the year, plus design projects, preparing for shows and pattern testing :-)
What have I done today?
It has been a super day, the boys are starting to get excited about Christmas. We are all looking forward to some relaxing family time. I have a few final bits left to wrap up and I must remember to take my nut loaf out of the freezer tomorrow.
We stock 4 shades of Stylecraft Jeanie yarn. This is a denim look aran weight yarn.
