Lists...I Love Lists!

In the next year I want to:

MAKE:


Wisp

Hourglass (Ravelry link)

Hedgehog

Blanket (Ravelry link)

Mittens

One colorwork sweater, the harder the better. (Um, Hello Alice Starmore- you're so on my list...)

LEARN:

Algebra til I can't help but to love it. (Yeah, I signed up for more punishment. Class starts in 3 weeks.)

3 more cast on methods. Right now I use maybe 3. How many do you know??

Crochet

Tatting



Go To:

MDSW

CTSW


NYSW

Weekend spinning camp in some form


Here's a photo of the green sweater. It's top down and so far, I love it! Don't even ask- yes, it's for me.



And- as if I didn't know this was going to happen, the hat that I made for my cousin is gone. His fiance borrowed it and lost it. So he's upset at her, she's upset at herself...it's a mess. She called me up today begging for me to save her. I have no problem knitting another for him. Sometimes our knits want to find a new adventure, right? I just hope it doesn't happen again, although I'm totally prepared for that.

Hmmm... I know long tail, which I don't care for. I use cable cast-on most frequently, and also know the knitted variation. I know how to do a crocheted provisional cast-on... I want to learn tubular next.

I only know long tail. I'll have to add MDSW to my to do list- wonder if husband would go? Wonder if I'd want him to?

I can do long tail, cable cast on, e wrap, provisional and the turkish/magic cast on for socks. I did that twisted German cast on or whatever it is once, but I don't really remember it. I've been thinking about what I want to learn or improve on too today.

Tatting is way fun. In French it's called Frivolite, if that gives you a guess of how fun it is. I did a little last week to kill time at work after a long abscence. I dug up my old Dover tatting books and got to it. Been wanting to make a full on table runner or something, but I've mostly made doilies and edgings for every little thing I think looks bare.

Crochet has been coming back to my mind too. I got the two Doris Chan books last month and she really knows her way around shell stitches.

Happy New Year! (a day late) Stay sparkly!

I know long tail cast on & backward loop. I'd like to learn many more but I fear change. Hmm, my desire to learn but fear of change seem to be in conflict. Sounds like the fiance f'd it up. Whoops!

How have you done? Do you need a crash course in crochet?
