2015 Knitting Bucket List

I’ve been thinking about next year and decided to change it from goals to a bucket list.
A bucket list seems like less pressure.

How I came up with the list:

  • What new thing do I want to learn?
  • What big project do I want to accomplish?
  • What do I need to enhance existing wardrobe for summer and winter?
  • What charity knitting am I doing?
  • Re-organize Ravelry pattern queue.  Where do they fit in my needs list?
  • What yarns (at least two from each, the Northwest trip, at SSK and older stash) do I already have that will work with the above?

I will be taking into account at least 3 fiber festivals I plan to attend, Oxford Fiber Arts Festival in Oxford, MS, Stitches South in Nashville, SSK in Nashville (wait listed), and any other that happens during a road trip.  My shopping list is narrowed to socks and linen.

New skill:

  • Color work
    I’ll start small with hats and mittens, which I do need for winter.
    They can also be for gifts.

Big Project:
