Crafting in December

Well, obviously December is a VERY busy month but it’s a good time for craft projects. Things have been a little manic here but I seem to have got quite
a lot done.

First, knitting – lots more pics on
Ravelry – find me as Home on the Hill
I’ve finished the drop stitch scarf on the right.
Keith’s waistcoat is
coming on well but it’s full of very boring knitting – which is just
what I need right now:
I also made a Christmas dress for Erin and a stocking (inspired by Kirsty Allsop on the tele)
Other crafting was at my herb group

meeting where we made natural wreaths – more on this at Home on the Hill
One thing I try and do at this time of the year is make a list of projects I’d like to complete for the following year. I haven’t done that yet as I’ve been too busy. Hopefully, now I’ve started thinking about it, I’ll be able to compile a list later this evening (got to go and organise our evening meal in a few minutes). When I have a new list, I’ll come back and edit this post.
Right, now to get that Moroccan lamb stew on the table.
Craft List for 2010
The list isn’t everything I plan to make in 2010 – just some stuff that needs finishing and things that I want to do in the coming year, that can’t really but put off for long (like making Erin a rag doll).
  • Autumn equinox wall hanging (wip)
  • Summer solstice wall hanging
  • Winter solstice wall hanging
  • Rag doll for Erin
  • KT’s waistcoat (wip)
  • Lace scarf for me (wip)
  • Cushion covers for dining chairs (wip)
  • Boy quilt (wip)
  • Girl quilt
  • Dressmaking – clothes for me
  • Knit cardigan or jacket for me
That’s it for the list. I also would like to knit me a small shawl or triangular scarf – but it’s not on the list because it’s not a ‘must do’. Other plans include knitting a bowl and fulling it because I like the look of them and I’ve had the yarn for ages – but it might turn into a Monmouth cap instead. I want to make a summer dress or two for Erin and hopefully make some Christmas gifts for next year as I didn’t do any this year. More knitted dishcloths (for us) would be nice. And I just might buy a spinning wheel!
Not sure if it should be listed here or on my gardening list, but I want to make some willow plant supports before Spring.
So that’s it. Let’s see how much I actually do in 2010.
