New Year 2017

Happy New year sweet friends! I was is bed last night at 8 pm and feeling very old.  We all felt rotten for not seeing in the New Year with family and friends as we had planned but we are jet lagged after returning home from the UK on the 30th.  So this morning I woke up feeling hung over without any of the celebration to warrant it! I’ve decided not to make resolutions in the traditional sense… I seldom do but when I do they just stress me out. Instead I have a manifesto. Just for fun and hopefully to focus myself on getting stuff done:

A Knitter’s Manifesto!

Knitter's Manifesto 2017

In no particular order (and with every intention of changing the pattern and or yarn involved if I wish to) my manifesto is full of patterns I already have yarn for.  This year I intend to work down my stash… no new yarn. Sadly this meant giving up my Space Cadet Club membership which was a bit of a tough decision to make because I so enjoy getting the surprise!

1. Silk-Cotton Jacket.. I’ve already gone off this pattern since choosing it a few days ago soooo… you know… knitter’s prerogative right?

2. Magic Treetop Tote as a project bag and just because its so dang delicious.

3. Summer’s Linen Emerald

4. Hey Teach!

5. Fairy Castles (my needles are an utter mess)

6. My Seashore– I’ve already cast this one on. It is a delightful pattern!

7. Loose Ends multi-layer Use up Spare Yarn Cowl

8. Hitofude… I’ve been thinking about this one for a long time.

9. Gnome Homes– again messy needles seeking a good home.

10. This one is a toss up between either Winter Moss or Lusekofte both are daunting as it would be my first color work attempt.

11. Beekeeping all year.

12. Again another toss up between Owls or Eased Bulky. I want both but only have yarn for one… decisions decisions.

13. Moonkoosas . I was gifted a gorgeous pair this winter and intend to knit a pair for my girls however they are all clamoring for Hopsalots now so we shall see what comes when I get to them.

14. Pumpkins… just because they are gorgeous!

Happy 2017!

xx Joanna
