I can’t believe January is nearly over and I am only just posting this year’s goals! Well, in all fairness, I have been frantically crocheting a blanket since Christmas
and I just finished it last night. It is one hell of a blanket and completely dwarfs our bed, but it’s lovely and cosy and I had the best night’s sleep last night! I have yet to take photos of it, and hope to be able to post some of these tomorrow if not later today.
So, this year’s goals. There are a number of projects I want to get completed this year and a number of techniques I want to learn, but I am only going to list the projects by priority and will post about the techniques as and when I teach myself (hopefully with a photo-tutorial to help you too!). So, here’s the list:
- CrochetAngel500 logo
- Rainbow Blooming Flower Cushion for the sofa using Lucy’s tutorial from Attic24
- Granny lap blanket for Big Miss
- Rainbow sea foam throw for the sofa using stitch pattern from 200 Crochet Flowers, Embellishments & Trims by Claire Crompton
- Dots + Poppies blanket from Unexpected Afghans by Robyn Chachula for the back of the sofa
- Two new cushion covers to replace the old horrible ones (design not decided yet)
- Bed blanket for Big Miss
- Lacy bedspread from The Crochet Bible by Sue Whiting for our bed
- Bed blanket for Little Man
- Bed Blanket for Little Miss
I think that’s quite enough to be getting on with, don’t you?! I started the Blooming Flower cushion before Christmas, but didn’t get very far because I had to get on with Christmas presents. I will be starting Big Miss’ granny lap blanket (kind of a blanket to snuggle under while watching TV) this evening – it will be my project to work on while we watch Twin Peaks after dinner. I really want to get started on the rainbow sea foam throw for the sofa, since this will be a particularly large project, but Big Man wants the cushion finished first so we have two on the sofa.
What are your plans for this year? Have you made a crafting New Year’s Resolution? Do comment below and share – I’d love to see what you’re up to!
