knitting in the new year
posted by soe 2:06 am

If you’ve been around here for any amount of time, you know that I like to make knitting plans that I will never keep, regardless of good intentions. It’s good to have goals and I like to establish plans, even if I don’t mind changing or abandoning them.

So, for my first goal of 2015 (unattainable or otherwise), I intend to knit 15 hats. The only purely knitting podcast I listen to (as opposed to CraftLit, which is about crafting and books) that remains in production is Stash & Burn, and next year they’re doing a hat-along. I like hats and I look good in them. Rudi likes hats. My mother likes hats. Other people like hats. Everyone I know has a head, which automatically makes them eligible to wear a hat (even if some opt not to avail themselves of the option).

I have a couple skeins that were bought for hats and are already wound for quick access. I have an extensive collection of hat patterns. Now it’s just matching up the two and casting on (after I finish a project or two).

I can’t wait! I’m so excited to have a new hat!
