I only pictures of two of the projects I want to finish, but this is only because my house looks like a tornado and I lost the other two. I will find them though. Non-resolution #2 - clean my house. Ha.
The first project I need to finish is a sweater for Little Miss C. I recently met an amazing artist in town who published three children's books with her husband. She so generously traded me all three of her books for some greeting cards! I am so blessed! Each of the book has the most adorable patterns in the back that I have ever seen for children. My favorite book is Pheobe's Sweater and I bought all the yarn and supplies back in October to make the sweet sweater for my sweet girl. Fast forward a few weeks with morning sickness, then add Christmas craziness on top of it and it didn't get done for her birthday or Christmas. Oh well. I am halfway done with the hood, then I just need to weave in the ends, block it, and sew on the buttons! I'm so excited, it's beautiful!
The second project I want to finish is a blanket I started during our trip to Michigan. I needed something to keep my hands busy up there, so I bought some pretty yarn and found a cute pattern on Pinterest. It's going to be a blanket for my craft room. I like it just fine, it just gets a bit mundane doing the same things over and over again. I'm almost finished with my first set of skeins though, so I might as well keep going and see how far they take me.
The other two projects are going to stay hidden for awhile, even if I find them, but you might find some black and white sneak peeks as they come along. Other projects I would like to do this year are: a) getting at least 5 more of the Christmas stockings done that I make for my dad's side of the family, b) at least one full pair of socks for myself, (instead of the normal get-one-sock-done-then-get-bored-cycle I do. I have a lot of unmatched socks), and c)at least 2 more sweaters, one for Baby J and one for my niece. Plus, if baby #4 is a girl, I need to make her a sweater too, right? I probably won't get all of these projects done, but hey, it's nice to write down your goals, right?
Enjoy the rest of the start to your new year! Blessings!
