Even though I kept my to-knit list for the year short, I managed to not stick with it.
- TKGA MHK L1 Coursework
- Capped, Fingerless Mittens for my husband
- A Hunting Cap for my husband
Mittens for my daughters Cowls for my daughters
- A Shawl for me
In the spirit of bullet journaling, I will just tack the following unfinished items onto next year’s to-knit list.
The pattern and yarn for the capped, fingerless mittens have been identified. With my husband’s birthday next week, there is no reason I should not get those started soon.
He’s graciously relieved me from knitting him his blaze orange hunting cap. Possibly because he really wants those mittens. I hope to still surprise him with it next Christmas.
The only thing keeping me from completing the shawl is myself. I am less than 30 rows from being finished (if that?) but there’s just a mental block keeping me from finishing it.
In addition to working on the unfinished items from this year’s list, I still want to make a coordinating sweater for the girls, a goal I set for myself in 2015. What I envision happening is this: I will re-size Wren’s lace cardigan for her now that she’s grown. (This child can now reach the top shelf of the pantry! Yikes!) There are a few other projects I’ve been knitting behind the scenes that I want to get serious about releasing as a pattern set.
I’m not going to beat myself up about not keeping to my list this year because I know that not only did I knit a lot, but I learned a lot about knitting. That being said… I’m really excited for 2017.
Happy New Year!
