So its 2013! Actually it is nearly March in 2013! So this is a rather belated post. I can say however, that I have been knitting! Lots of knitting in fact. I have even started crochet (which by the way seems to be more complicated than knitting!) I did think about setting some crafting goals for this year. So here they are:
- Finish projects already started! This has got to be on every ones list! At the moment this includes mittens, babies cardigan, a chunky snood and the Xmas stocking!
- Knit my first toy. Ive wanted to knit a toy since I picked up my needles, but there are lots of techniques I was not familiar with. Now I have a much greater knowledge so feel confident to tackle a toy.
- Knit in the round. I really want to learn to knit in the round. It seems to be really useful, and easier than knitting with 3 needles!
- Master a new stitch. I really want to master a new, unusual stitch such as Blanket Moss Stitch. (see below)
So there it is, some goals for my knitting. There are lots of things I need to post in the next few weeks, including all the things I've been knitting (successfully and unsuccessfully!) over the Xmas and new year.
