I’ve sort of banned myself from casting on a new sweater for myself. I’ve got this pink yarn hanging around taunting me, but I have two secret knits that I need to pay more attention to so I told myself I could only work on accessories for my social knitting. Recently I’ve been working on the hat I was planning on making using the yarn I bought myself for my birthday. It’s coming along quite nicely.

What are you working on? Do you have any knitting plans for January?


    • It sounds like you need some! I have quite a few hats, but almost all of them are from when I knit whatever I felt like without considering if the project goes with my wardrobe or is something I’d wear.

  • Hello Andi,
    The link to this pink yarn doesn’t work, I believe.
    I can’t wait to see your secret projects!
    I’ve got plenty to do on my list for this january.
    First I told myself that it would be great to finish all those languishing WIPs laying around my apartment!
    Right now I’m working on a pair of Fireweeds socks as a staying at home project and I’ll be carrying my just begun Iz cowl everywhere for social/transit knitting. Then I’ll have to finish my AubĂ©pine tunic that is also just begun. I also have a garment pattern to edit. I’ve been procrastinating over this for months, now time to beat it! Finally, I need to sketch and swatch for my next designs.

    • Oops! The link is fixed now. Thanks for letting me know.

      You’ve got a long list for January! Good luck fighting the procrastination. I struggle with that, too.

  • I love knitting hats. Quick and satisfying. 🙂

    Currently I am knitting on a secret design (can’t blog about it), a sweater for me and a hat for my husband. Whew!

    • Secret knits can be challenging when you’re used to blogging about all of your projects. I always miss being able to talk about what I’m working on.

  • Well, whenever my super nice Irish yarn finally gets here, I plan on working on the Portulaca cardigan with Carol Feller’s Craftsy class, Celtic Cables. I’ve never done cables before and the video lessons are mucho helpful. I can’t wait to actually get to cast on!

    • I love the look of cables. I still have a hard time keeping track of where I am when I knit them, but they’re pretty simple to work once you get the basic concept down!

  • Oh the goals for January! I think I’m going to start a new tradition for my kiddos – birthday sweaters! I’m close to being done with my son’s, which is good, since I a) cast on this week for it and b) his birthday is next Saturday! I’m over halfway done on the body; a worsted weight yarn on size 8 needles makes for fast knitting when it’s a child’s size. I also still have to finish a sweater for me and I have a hat as well that I really want to finish. I have 2 hats that I’ve knit – both skull cap style, and I just don’t wear them much. I’m hoping a slouchy beret will be worn more.
