I found a group on my beloved Ravelry that quite appealed to me as I spend a lot of my time knitting things for other people, it is called, 12 for Myself . The challenge is to make 12 items for yourself in 2012, or 1 a month.
For this I needed to compile a list of 12 things I wanted to make for myself in 2012, so I thought I’d share it with you here. 🙂
2. Girl Friday by Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark – this is a Knit-A-Long (KAL) project on the group, and it looks like a lovely cardigan, so having never done a KAL or made a cardigan I thought it would be a good addition to my 12!
3. Parisian Twist Headband Ear Warmer by Elisa McLaughlin– I love me ear warmers too! and this one is beautiful, and I have the perfect wool for it in my stash 🙂 All of Elisa’s knitwear is beautifully chic, I want to make ALL her pieces!
6. Gnome Homes and Fairy Castles by Tiny Owl Knits – can Tiny Owl Knits design anything that isn’t cute?? I desperately need a storage system for my double pointed needles, losing them is turning in to a very expensive pasttime, so these would be perfect!
So that is my 12, some big projects, some small projects – 2012 is going to be a BUSY year!
