Now that I’ve revisited my 2022 knitting goals, it’s time to turn my attention to some new goals. 2023 is sure to be very different from 2022 – or at least, I hope it is! Mainly because I hope we do some serious traveling! As far as my knitting goes, I really want it to be fun. So if something is no longer fun, I don’t want to feel obligated to knit on it.
- Knit 2 pairs of birthday socks
- Knit children’s socks
- Participate in the Westknits MKAL again
- Make colorwork mittens
- Finish my Selbu Mittens
- Knit with my 2 Advent calendars from 2022
- Plan and wind yarn for a temperature blanket in 2024
I plan to knit more socks, of course! And it’s time I branch out into children’s socks since so many of my friends have kids. This should be a great way to use leftover yarn!
There’s a pattern for colorwork mitts that I’ve been wanting to knit for a while now and I just need to do it. I also need to finish my Selbu Mittens. I think I’ll make these my 30-minutes of morning knitting once I finish an Advent calendar (which I usually knit then).
Kay, the Crazy Sock Lady, announced she’s making a temperature blanket this year and I love her take on it! I was too late to start one this year so I’m going to work on planning out yarn to make one next year. This will take a lot of skein winding! But it’ll be a great way to use up some yarn – because I have plenty to make this blanket and more!
Since I ordered two Advent knitting calendars in 2022, I really need to knit both of them. I’m not going to hold myself obligated to knit with my LIS swap Advent calendar because those skeins…. Well, I just can’t imagine them all in one project together.
Though I don’t enjoy planning out my projects too much, I like having some goals for the year in general. I always like having the flexibility of casting on a new project on a whim, if I’m so inclined!!
What are your knitting goals for next year? I hope you have a lot of fun projects to look forward to!
