This year I actually made some knitting resolutions, so I thought I'd hold myself to them by discussing them here. First, learn new techniques by knitting patterns I've been meaning to knit for months... years...
First project: The Emily Dickinson Shawl by knit/lab.
I did indeed use cobweb weight shetland, knit on Addi Turbo lace needles purchased specially for this project. I learned to add beads to my knitting using a tiny tiny tiny crochet hook. Here it is:
Okay, now I just need to block it. I highly recommend this pattern; it's exceptionally well written and, despite the fact that it was a lot of garter stitch, was addictive to knit.
Second resolution: Rework and standardize my older patterns, particularly the free ones that sort of accumulated before I had the (still haphazard but more controlled) design process that I do now. Several are in progress! Stay tuned!
What are your knitting resolutions this year?
