A trawl through my 2019 blog posts reveals that I did make most of my crafting resolutions in 2019.
First up I wanted to crochet a blanket to bust some stash. I had a lot of acrylic yarn that had been given to me by various people over the years and I wanted to get to the bottom of it. There were so many colours, I knew a Spice for Life blanket would be the perfect pattern.
This is my favourite sofa blanket for winter nights.
I also made lots of other smaller blankets using more pastel collections which were gifted to new babies.
In sewing, I really wanted to crack learning how to sew Roman blind for our new house.
I finally mastered it and have made three this year. They are all packed away in carpet tubes to keep them clean until we move house.
I wanted to knit something from my ravelry favourites queue that had been there for more than two years! The Lady Kina pattern jumped to the top of my wish list.
I have worn the Lady Kina a lot but the acrylic has stretched to a bigger size, I gifted it to my friend in November. The colourwork sweater called prairie Fairy has been a triumph. I was even contacted by Drops to give permission for them to use my photos. Much Kudos!
Finally, I wanted to complete my postage stamp quilt of 5 x 5 cm squares. I am nearly there with this one. The topper is finished and I just need an afternoon to be in the mood to sandwich it all together on my knees! Maybe when the Christmas tree comes down I will have the space. A big reveal is imminent.
1) To knit a sweater in 4ply yarn to use some mystery wool I bought at Wonderwool this year.
2)To sew a pattern from my pattern box that is unopened. I tend to use the same patterns and alter them.
3) To crochet more of my acrylic stash for gifting.
Well that is more than enough for any crafter I think. There will of course be more making everyday depending on what I intuitively fancy. So I hope you will join me in 2020.
Happy New Year!
Love from all here. xxxx
