My 2014 Goal:

 

I'm happy to report that I have successfully completed a Barton Cottage Shrug using my handspun yarn—and it is so wonderfully warm and comfortable, that I've had a hard time taking it off.

 

My knitting buddies sometimes make fun of me because it takes me so long to complete a project—but you know, I love the process as much as the finished object. So yes, it took me two years to make my shrug, but I enjoyed every bit of it. In fact, there are a lot of great memories caught up in that yarn, and every time I wear it (which is nearly every day now) I remember them.

 

I started another cardigan immediately upon completing my shrug—I had yards and yards of a laceweight yarn I had just finished plying after all that Spinzilla fun in October. I'm making the Ginny Cardigan now from the cover of The Unofficial Harry Potter Knits. I look forward to all the stories and memories that will be embedded in that cardigan when I complete it.

My 2014 Goal:

 

In 2014 I’m going to try using singles in my finished projects. After years of being intimidated by active twist, I want to start using it to my advantage both in knitting and weaving. 

 

Join Liz this year and spin singles with energy! Whether you're going to use this yarn for small details in finished projects, or knit an entire sweater out of energized singles, this new way to spin yarn will add texture and create organic details in your knitting.

Make this your goal!
