Yesterday I posted my top 12 sewing projects for 2013 — easy. Finalizing my knitting projects . . . not so easy! There are just so many things I want to make! FOCUS. My goal is to have a minimum of 12 products completed at the end of this year. A top 12 list is not meant to limit after all but to encourage productivity. So after calculating the time required for the sewing projects and putting them in my calendar I have narrowed down my knitting list to coincide with the sewing projects. Here is the final list of projects that I want to knit in 2013. (You will notice I still have not narrowed everything completely . . . but it is a start)
1. Finish the Baby Retro Ski Sweater that I started August 2012 and wanted to finish for Christmas read about it here –January
2. Gray hat for husband to match my son’s vintage gray ski cap this was a specific request so I am also going to try to finish it before winter is over.
4. Shawl from Jane Austen Knits Summer 2012–I will start this in March as I want to wear it during April and May
I also love the Baby Bonnet in this issue as well but we will see if I have time to make it.
5-8 are a bit confusing and I’m not quite sure which to do when but here they are for April through July
I could always go with some simple patterns like dishcloths, potholders, etc like these ones
9. In September I will start the
10. Shelby headband/ear warmer (this is inspired by one worn by my friend) — October
10. Fingerless mittens — I’ve been wanting to make a pair for SEVERAL years and have never gotten around to making any! This will be the year . . . as soon as I decide which one I want.
11. Great-Grannies Mittens: the cabled ones (my mom has this pattern) read about them here–November
Tie up any projects for Christmas during this month.
12. Other small projects such as knitted coasters and Christmas projects. I will also start on the Ruffled & Ruched Scarf for the new year.
Any thoughts on these projects? Maybe you can help me choose between my options? Hopefully as the time gets closer I will be able to narrow my choices. Although some flexibility might be a good thing as time goes by!
