Knitting Goals for 2009

My goal this year is to continue knitting all year. I know to most that sounds like a ridiculous statement. For me it’s just the cycle of the year, I ususally start and end strong, but at some point in the middle, knitting output hits the skids. This year, I am hoping that my choice of projects will help me keep things moving along.

I started my red version of the Barn Raising Quilt [Ravelry link]. I am hoping the fact that I want to knit 99 squares (9 squares x 11 squares), will always give me a TV / baseball watching project to work on. Here are my first 2 squares.

Quilt Squares No. 1 and 2
Red, brown and gray = Knitterly Things Vesper Sock – Hot Metal
Red and white = Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock – Team Spirit

Last year, once the baseball season started, the only project I started and finished was Sawyer’s Pinwheel [Ravelry link]. I always seem to have good intentions and am constantly inspired by the projects others are making (Ravelry is full of new ideas on an almost daily basis).

In addition to the Red Barn Raising Quilt [Ravelry link], I have several other projects in mind for the year. I hope to knit my first lace project, I have the Woodland Shawl in mind. I also want to knit my first plush, a giraffe for my mom. There are a few other projects on my 2009 “To Do” list, so I will try to keep knitting at least a little everyday.

      Thanks for sharing the recipe…can’t wait to try it out!!

      I’ve been plugging away on the quilt squares (I think I’m up to 11), but lately I’ve started working on other things. I haven’t started the giraffe yet, but I’m looking forward to starting soon. Thanks!
