Day Seven: Looking Forward

One year from now, when the 5th Knitting and Crochet Blog Week rolls around, where do you hope your crafting will have taken you to? What new skills, projects and experiences do you hope you might have conquered or tried?

Last time I participated in Blog Week (2 years ago, I decided to skip last year having very recently sprogged) we were asked something similar and that post can be found here.  The essence of it was that I would like to try colourwork and I outlined 5 steps that I would follow to achieve that goal.  Out of those 5 steps I have sort of completed just one, learn to spin.  The idea being that I could spin small amounts of several colours to save me buying a whole bunch of yarn I would only use a little of.  I haven't actually done this, but I do have some fibre all ready to go, I have 45g each of 5 colours but obviously I've yet to spin any.  So aside from that the whole post stands really.  The only change that I would make would be to add a couple more projects that I would like to make.  Here is everything in my favourites that I have tagged as colourwork.  This time next year I would really like to have made at least one of them.

Because I think it is a little boring to just regurgitate a 2 year old post, I'm also going to add another goal.  Crochet.  Technically I can crochet, but I do it so rarely that I don't do it very well and because of that I do it rarely.  It's a bit of a vicious circle.  I have started a couple of projects recently but they weren't turning out right and I found it frustrating so I gave up and did some knitting instead.  So this time next year I would also like to have crocheted at least one thing.

So, I hope to see you next year with my completed colourwork and crocheted items.  Blog week has been great fun, yet again.  I've really enjoyed reading all your posts and have been overjoyed to have so much lovely feedback on my posts.  Thanks everybody!
Just because this post has no photos, here's one of Cassie practicing for next years blog week!

Right. This time next year if either of us has failed to crochet anything or conquer colourwork, the other is allowed to mock our failure.

Let's get going!

Spinning small amounts for colourwork is a brilliant idea. Looking forward to seeing the projects you make.
