After a knitting friend from my local knitting group, Melissa, aka MisoCrafty
, posted about her joining of the “12 in 2011” project on Ravelry, I have been thinking about doing it too. The basics are that you make your own “kit”, like in a yarn/fibre club, for the entire year. You are to take a pattern and yarn that you already have, team them up, decide on 12 of them that you’d like to complete this year, and bag up each pattern and it’s needed yarn into it’s own “kit”. Then you have 12, at least, projects all ready and lined up for completion. Since I have plenty of patterns/projects and their necessary yarns already ready, it is just a matter of putting together my own 12 for this year.
I have a handful of these kits bagged up so far. I’m rummaging through my Queue on Ravelry, pondering what other patterns/projects I am committed to knitting this year. It’s a bit of a challenge. How will I know what I really want to knit this year specifically? Okay, so I know some of them, but 12? So I will persevere. And post again with the line-up, once it’s all decided.
What about you? Do you have enough patterns & yarns to put together your own kits for a year?
