Hey, everyone! I'd really love to get a sense of what everyone's plans are for 2017 knitting/crocheting-wise. What do you want to make? Using what kind of yarn? I really wanted to do a mermaid tail in 2016, and loved giving it to my four year old friend. 2017 - I don't know yet! What about you?

I plan to learn Tunisian crochet, at least the basics and make a couple of items, probably scarves. I have 3 sweaters in the plan and always socks on the needles. The biggest goal I have for the year is stash reduction. I want to use more than I bring in and clear off at least one shelf of stashed yarns.

I have Hitofude and Whippet on my list. Both for me. I have purchased beautiful alpaca yarn from Yarn Paradise to knit them. As far as crochet goes, another Doris Channel sweater or two. Her designs are very functional as well as attractive.

I want to learn Fair Isle, and I have a kit from Knit Picks to learn it with. I also want to master double knitting just because I am fascinated with the idea that I can knit one side and the opposite shows up on the other side. Of course, I need to knit more socks for me because I wear them out almost as soon as I can knit them. My pairs of socks only last a little over a year before they develop places where they wear thin.

My only goal is to knit the projects that I already have patterns for, but there are several projects I have already bought yarn for and still need to buy the pattern, so that probably won't last long!!

I have so many beautiful projects & yarns that my mind is full of ideas & 'want to' projects. In fact, I almost feel stuck, not able to decide which project to start next! Of course, I have 4 WIPs already plus I've started hand-dyeing yarn. I have at least 2 sweaters' worth of yarn in 2 bags plus yarn for Miss Grace & Dreambird shawls, a vest, lots of hats, & too much unassigned yarn. I almost need to schedule projects so I can decide which one(s) to do first.
Reduction of stash is a priority.

I found another beautiful "insert" pattern to knit down each side of my cardigans. I already have the first 2017 cardigan body almost finished. I knit top down cardigans with a "usually" lace panel down each side of front. My daughter said the one I'm making now is the prettiest yet. I'm making it for her. I desperately need to use up some of my stash before I buy any more. Too late, just bought enough yarn for another cardigan last week. So much for "that New Years Resolution".

Good luck, Happy, Prosperous and Good Healthy to all you KP's for the New Year.

I want to finish at least a few of the projects I've started for myself. I always seem to finish things for other people, and put my own items to the wayside.

I have decided to use all my leftover yarn in small projects in an attempt to clean out the stash. I have several one skein books to work from and perhaps by year end I'll have lots of gifts ready for Christmas! I already have a beautiful scarf 3/4 done.

A few items on my list are, (1) a Pi shawl (I cannot work with double points and have tried this a few times unsuccessfully, (2) the wings shawl with short rows (I am taking a short rows class at Vogue Knitting LIVE this Sunday so will hopefully get that one done, (3) try socks from toe up.

I have committed to knit 50+ hats for the local branch of the Shoebox Projects. Finish a short row shawl/scarf which I started and packed to take with me when I go on my holidays next month. Plus some other items which I haven't made up my mind on what I want to make.
