Craft plans 2012

Sneak preview! Took this picture
a week ago.

So.... I guess I'm what, two weeks overdue with this post?
But I have finished my Fair Isle Yoke in the that time so thats good right?

So, time for opposite-post of this one: A craft plan for 2012! I've never really made a craft plan for the year and I have no idea whether I will stick to it. I have decided that it doesn't matter if I do or not. Now, for the fun!

- Make 10 sweaters/cardigans in 2012 including:
I will plan the other sweaters as I go.

-Make 2 shawls:
  • One using: Malabrigo sock.
  • One using: Schoppel-wolle Lace yarn.
OR:
  • Knit one really, really, really big shawl:
    Lately I've been obsessed with making one of those really big lace shawls, like Cameo Shawl, Leaves of grass, Evenstar shawl or Bressay Hap Wrap. I blame re-watching the lord of the rings series for the first time in years! If this obsessions sticks with me for a while, and I actually do cast on for one, I'm prepared to forget the two shawls above. Heck, I'm going to be happy if I finish this even if I don't finish anything else this year!

-Sew clothes:
  • Sew a dress.
  • Sew a clothing item with tricot.

- Knit/crochet my ravely queue down.

So there you have it, my plans of what to craft this year! I must warn you though, chances that I am going to ignore this whole list and do something completele different are pretty high. I never was or will be the most organised person. But I am going to try it! ;)

You can find this list on the sidebar along with my other pages. I'll update my progress through the year! All in all I hope this will be fun and that I won't be to harsh on myself when I don't succeed in completing it ;)

So what do you think?
Have you made any craft plans this year?
