2015 is The Year of the Sweater – #TCK12sweaters2015 – and I’ve got some pretty darn ambitious plans!
As well as knitting 12 or more sweaters, I also plan to participate in Me Made May (showcasing and working on my handmade wardrobe), run a 1/2 marathon, and take swing dancing lessons! It’s going to be a great year.
matchy matchy… it’s cheesy but we love it!
Sweater #1 of 12 is done (that was the Flax for Max). And as of about 15 minutes ago (literally) sweater #2 of 12 is done: an Antler cardigan for me. It was even completed before the end of February (although I must admit, I started it AGES ago…!).
monster sized lists and moderately sized results
As far as project planning goes, my habit is to plan REALLY big, and then finish a small percentage of what I planned. I’m OK with this as a strategy, because it means I end up accomplishing quite a few projects and adventures, even though there are many that I don’t get to. I make a lot of ‘mega lists’ along the way. Anybody else like this?
Em’s mega sweater list
- Flax pattern hack for my 2-year-old niece Millie… it’s going to be in Rainbow Heirloom Sweater in ‘princess rockstar’ pink, and will have a lace panel at the sleeves instead of garter stitch.
- Lacy little number for my friend Chantal… it’s a secret new design that I’m working on
- Cozy pullover for my husband John… it’s a secret new design that Alexa’s working on
- Snowflake pullover for myself (maybe I’ll finish it in time for the Edinburgh Yarn Festival?)
- North Shore for Max – I’m thinking it will be a cardigan version, and I’ll knit it Rainbow Heirloom Sweater in greys and blacks and white.
- Clayoquot Cardigan for me – it’s my favourite design from Road Trip, I just really need one!
- One or two sweaters from other designers: Ysolda, Kate Davies, Norah Gaugan, Brooklyn Tweed are all on my list of potentials…
Any opinions? Which designs should I make for me?
