Knitting was minimal in January, thought I did put a bit more time into other crafts like spinning and cross-stitch. I guess it is a combination of the weather and wanting a bit of a change.
To try and get a bit of knitting mojo back, I am decided to set myself a goal of trying to finish a few projects that have been sitting on the needles for a while. Some of my projects that I would like to finish are:
My Spin drift shawl – I have just started the lace edging and only have two more repeats of the lace and the picot cast off to go.
Through the Darkness shawl – I have finished the garter section and am now up to the body lace. As this is 8 ply I am hoping the lace section will go quickly, but I will need the larger cable from the Spindrift Shawl to make it easier to knit on!
Paulie Cardigan – this is so close to being done, I am almost halfway through the second sleeve and then I only have the button band to go. I will be playing a bit of yarn chicken, but I have a similar yarn to the MC that should work fine for the button band without looking strange (I hope)
I also have another cardigan in 8/10 ply – the Forest Cardigan, which also only needs sleeves and button bands which I would like to finish as well.
My other goal is to try and finish at least two pairs of socks. I am falling behind on my box of socks kal knitting, but I am sure I will be able to catch up without too much trouble as I begin to feel more inspired to knit.
