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.

3. Baby hats for the twins my sister is having a repeat of the cupcake hat for the girl and the newborn layette cap for the boy–February

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

There are also several possibilities of baby hats that I have pinned as well as several patterns from the adorable Sublime baby knits book. I also love the

and the

Louise Cardigan found in Vintage Baby Knits by Kristen Rengren

I could always go with some simple patterns like dishcloths, potholders, etc like these ones

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.

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!
