Planning Projects

I have always been the kind of knitter (and crafter as a whole) that buys pretty yarn and then plans projects, usually then requiring more yarn LOL!  Hence why I have quite a lot of yarn in my stash :">

I also have a bad habit of doubting my own abilities hence why this year I was/am determined to tackle new things.  So far on the knitting front that means I have mastered magic loop; as a DPN lover I was very resistant to magic looping but now love it, started (but as yet not finished as I am finding them a tad boring!) a pair of two at a time toe up socks and learnt to knit continental style.  The rest of my goals are mainly spinning related but since I have still not managed more than 5 minutes playing they may take longer to achieve!

I have had several patterns queued on Ravelry for a loooong time, some of which I have never had the confidence to knit.  Well, I'm sat here matching my favourite stashed yarn to those patterns and am determined to complete them in 2013...if nothing else I need more shawls desperately!

My plans include:

StarLight Shawl in Wollmeise Pure "True Love" and "WD Versuch (Schwartz)"
Double Knitting which I've never attemped!

Koi Garden Shawlette in Kauni Effektgarn EQ
Entrelec, which I have again never attempted!

I also have several skeins of purchased handspun I'm attempting to find projects for and a gorgeous skein of Gradiance Yarns Silver Sparkle in Tropics which is destined to be a semi circular shawl methinks!

But for now, I really should finish my current WIP's...
