Knitting and Crochet Blog Week - Day 7

Well, today is the last day of the 4th annual Knitting and Crochet Blog Week.  For the final time this year, please read the italicized text below to find out what today's post is about. :)
  Day Seven (Sunday April 28th): Looking Forward
One year from now, when the 5th Knitting & Crochet Blog Week rolls around, where do you hope your crafting will have taken you to? What new skills, projects and experiences do you hope you might have conquered or tried?

This could be anything from mastering a technique (broomstick lace, entrelac, etc), trying a new yarn or skill, or a long term wish to crochet only from your stash, or knit every stitch in one of the Harmony Guides. Maybe you have no desire or plans for your craft at all, no new element of knitting or crochet that you dream of mastering, in which case write about why that might be. In a year's time participants will be asked to look back to see if they achieved any goals, no matter how general, and see which house conquered the art of looking forward.

By next Knitting and Crochet Blog Week I want have become a knitter who finishes projects, and doesn't give up because the pattern is getting "boring" or "hopeless" or "to hard" or "time consuming".  I also want to have a good grip on some tricky techniques.  Here is a list of things I want to accomplish.

  • short row shaping
  • color work (stranding, fair isle, intarsia)
  • lace
  • twist and twisted stitches
  • provisional cast on
  • knit a shawl by Emily Ross
  • spin at least 4 ounces of roving into one skein
  • design at least 5 patterns (?)
  • knit at least half a hexipuff a day
  • try Dream in Color yarn
  • knit another Hitchhiker shawlette (in a different color)
  • Participate in Knitting and Crochet Blog Week 2014!
I hope you have enjoyed reading my Knitting and Crochet Blog Week posts this year!



  1. Ambitious goals, Emily....I know that you can satisfy at least half of them. :)

  2. Color work, that's one I'd like to master as well. I've tried it once, but it still scares me.
