    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!

    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.
