I suppose it's a good thing I haven't yet documented any lofty Knitterly Resolutions For 2007, nor have I created a knitter's almanac for myself for this year. I've had plenty of ideas swimmin' around my pumpkin-sized noggin, but haven't felt compelled to document anything firmly In Writing, as of yet -- I guess I was seeing where the year would take me before committing to anything.
But, in the past week, even though I just completed two hats, I continue to add more and more hats to my mental checklist of Things I Must Knit In The Near Future, so I thought I'd better write myself a list, to keep track of them here.
However, there is some danger in list-making, at least where I am concerned. Once a list has been made, the items on it start looking less like joyful gift-knitting to delight the process knitter, and more like duty-bound obligations which take the fun out of my knitting process. Which is why I promptly forgot about the Christmas list I made for myself last year, and ended up only knitting what I knew in my heart I could comfortably finish by the holiday deadline.
But I do really want to knit each and every item on the first list below, and I don't want to forget anything, so I will formalize my mental checklist here:
Things I really, really want to knit in the next two months:
- Snowman hat for my sister-in-law
- Snowman hat for my sister
- Redskins-colors birthday beanie for nephew (got the yarn at Unraveled yesterday!)
- Birthday hat for my younger brother
- Baby hat for someone I know who is pregnant....
- Baby (boy) hat for friend's grandchild
Things I'd really like to knit in the next two months:
