I didn't do so well in 2012 on my Planned Project Goals (where you can see how little I accomplished) I completed only three projects our my fifteen planned (if you count cutting out a pattern as one, and a rather large quilt for one) my success rate is small - 5 percent. 5 percent? really? really.
But, I did learn to knit and had an extraordinarily busy year at work - which curtailed my sewing results. So, this year is going to be different, I tell you!
So, I am limiting my goals for 2013 (I'm "goal'd out" in other parts of my life).
1. Expand my knitting skills. I'd like to knit fingerless mitts (learn to use DPNs), a hat, socks, and eventually a sweater like this one.
Susie's Reading Mitts, available at Ravelry (Thanks Tanya of Sew Sassy Again for the link to this pattern).
The pattern is available for free at Garn Studio, and here is the link to the Celtica Shawl Cardigan from DROPS. .
I've also bought a Craftsy online class (when they were on sale), Celtic Cables, from the talented Irish Knitting Designer, Carol Feller, whose blog is stolen stitches, to learn to do a Aran sweater (yes, my obsession with Irish culture continues).
2. Perfect a button down dress shirt. I purchased a craftsy course: The Classic Tailored Shirt by Pam Howard. I plan to make my own pattern with my sloper.Anise Sew-Along. I love Colette Patterns.
5. Stash and Pattern Busting. Bust some of my stash and get through some of the fabulous fabric I own waiting to be made up into a wearable garment, either from my slopers or my abundance of patterns. This is not my current stash below, believe me - it's much more crowded on those shelves now - they are definitely overflowing!!
I am eager to hear your goals and have enjoyed reading those who have posted. . .
Happy New Year and I hope everyone makes exactly what they want this coming year.
P.S. I am considering taking the Seamless Pledge.
