2018 Crafting Intentions

It's a new year! Happy New Year!
I did really well on my 2017 goals; I did better than expected and knit TEN hats for charity! I also completed my two "other" embroidery projects, but I didn't finish the cross stitch portrait I had planned though I've started it twice. I will be finishing it and another this year though.


Half of my 2018 crafting intentions are finishing things that I've started. Not all the unfinished things have made my resolution list, just certain ones. I am however working on completing some more recently unfinished things (such as the cross stitch portraits mentioned above). Without further ado, here are my craft related resolutions for the year:

Finish that Knitting
Three items have been in my knitting WIPs for a very long time and this year I will finish them! The three items are this mixed up mystery scarf, my oversized knit purse, and the leopard hat from my 2016 goals

Finish that Quilt
The progress on my denim quilt is pathetic. I haven't come close to cutting out all the pieces let alone start sewing. This is the year I make a quilt! I have all the materials and just need to get to work!

New Projects from New Books
I received some new knitting and cook books and need to make at least one item from each of them! The books are Dandelion & Quince by Michelle McKenzie, Share by Chris Santos, 60 Quick Knitted Toys from Cascade Yarns, and The Beginner's Guide to Writing Knitting Patterns by Kate Atherley.

New Projects on the New Loom
Another present I received was a frame loom for weaving. Once I finish the woven side of the round crochet pillow I've been working on, I'll get started on weaving projects using the loom! I would like to make at least two woven pieces this year.

How well did you do on last year's resolutions and what projects do you want to complete this year?
