I've got a few things I'd like to achieve in 2012, I don't have a massive amount of time for personal knitting anymore so I'm not going to be too over optimistic, this isn't everything I'll knit this year but it's the things I really, really want to do.
First on my list are my 8 pairs of Van Gogh socks (you can read about them here) I've got a pair of plain socks on the needles that are nearly finished and as soon as they are done, I'll start the first Van Goghs.
I want to knit both my sons a jumper - this blog post by the Yarn Harlot sums up why and there is a great book of Boy's Knits coming out soon. Son No.1 wants red and No.2 wants purple - I will need to acquire (washable) yarn for these.
The lovely Sarah Hatton wrote me a pattern for a cardigan - it's going to be epic (and stripy).
I need hats - I have 2 hats in my possession, I have knit many more than this but my sisters keep stealing them, I plan to combat this by knitting them in colours I know they hate. HA.
Lastly, I want to knit Christmas presents for 2012, I didn't knit any this year because I didn't have time but it made me sad - my family love to receive knitted items and I love to give them. I hope that by starting early (can't get much earlier!) I can pace myself and everyone will have a merry, WOOLLY Christmas in 2012!
