Welcome 2014

2014 - Planning

Well the new year is under way and it's back to work for most of us and time to start planning the year ahead. I've been thinking back this week on what I've achieved in the last 12 months since I took up crochet again. Twelve months ago I couldn't read patterns, I struggled with basic stitches and wondered if I'd ever be able to make something other than a scarf.

2013 Projects:
  • Rainbow baby ripple blanket

  • Crochet collar

  • Coasters

  • Newborn jacket

  • Newborn bonnet (WIP)

  • Baby shawl (WIP)

  • Beanies

  • Scarf and beanie set

2014 Projects:

  • Cardigan
  • Lace weight shawl
  • Knitted socks
  • Hooded cape
  • Infinity scarf
This week I found some great bargains at Spotlight managing to get merino/silk lace weight yarn for $3.00 a 50g ball and acrylic/nylon yarn for $2.00 a 100g ball. I wanted to buy more than I did but decided to just get what I needed for two of my planned projects. I'm sure there will be more sales on later in the year so I can be patient and wait. 

This year I would also like to practice more of my spinning, perhaps attend another workshop as I still don't really know what I'm doing or how to adjust the spinning wheel correctly. 

What projects have you got planned for 2014? Are you on Instagram? You can find me on there as vintagevesta7, please drop by and say hello and I'd love to see what you're working on too. 

Have a great week!
