  • What are you making in 2012?

    What is everyone's plans to make in 2012?

    On my list is a tea cosy for my Uncle and his girlfriend (who amusingly are called Richard and Judy), a white kitten for me, a pair of purple beaded gloves for me, a lace top for me, a hat for my step-sister and of course a man-thong for my best man friend who promises to model it for us!
    Blessed are the cracked for they let in the light.

    I'm going to draw a picture of our dog who died 9 months ago for my mum's birthday using my shiny new toy.

    I'm also knitting Little Sister a hooded scarf.

    And I still owe CCH a pair of socks...

    AND I stupidly promised people hats...

      Aw that's nice. Sorry to hear you lost your dog

      Hat's are pretty quick to make. If you use a thick yarn you'll be done in no time.

      How are the socks going?

        I promised my friend a knitted baby blanket for her first child. Thankfully she isn't pregnant yet but it is going to take me all of 2012 I think as I knit so very slowly! So that is my only project.

          I am going to rip them out and start again with new yarn.

          (I say new, I mean old yarn that I've had lying around for about four years and is sort of the same colour (Boring Brown))

            As usual, I will be making an arse of myself.
            Did you ever go to a place - I think it was called Norway?
            That was one of mine. Won an award, you know. Lovely crinkly edges...

              I will continue my efforts at guitar making and hopefully make a new career for myself. Second one should be finished before summer hopefully.

                    I'm planning to make a dress a month. I've been looking for dresses in the sales, but none of them are quite right, so I'm going to make my own. 12 in a year is enough to keep it interesting without being too ambitious.

                    Obv also clothes for Superbaby and stuff to sell!

                      now we are having a baby born in the family this year (not mine...) so I want to knit something small for them. Luckily it isn't due til the second half of the year though. Ideas appreciated... I'm thinking hat or socks or something else easy!

                              That's what I did. I don't think my sister put them on the baby though, she did put the booties on him once but she said booties "made his feet look gay" but don't let my *insert adjective here* sister stop you though. I think they look really cute.
