    1Q 2020 Make Along Chatter

    Good morning! I love seeing all of the beginnings and FOs in the 2019 Holiday Make Along - thank you all for joining in!

    Here's where we'll chatter about what is on our needles, hooks, machines, or otherwise for the 1st Qtr 2020.

    Do you have crafty resolutions to share? Mine - I am really hoping my 2020 will be a stash buster year. I am hoping the 2020 Stashbuster MAL will help support that.

    I hope you are all settling in nicely after the holidays for some nice winter making.
    Quilting is happening here! ❤️

    I'm looking forward to getting some of my stash knocked out this year as well. Not sure how much will be accomplished in the 1st quarter though. I'm an accountant, so I go from holiday stress to tax return stress. I do manage to get a bit of stitching in every day to decompress. Who needs sleep, right?

    I've come to the conclusion that collecting yarn, and using yarn are two entirely separate hobbies.

      I am an accountant too - but I serve municipalities. So - January and February are crazy busy for me, then it slows some. :-)

    My resolution for this year is to make more items for charity. I would like to have at least 50 items (scarves, hats, ear warmers, etc.) for delivery by the first part of October. My hope is to be creative in using leftover yarn from previous projects.

      Good morning and Happy New Year. Stash busting sounds like a good way to start it off. Like

      Char I want to do more charity knitting. Its a great way to use up odd saved balls of yarn and the projects are usually quick to knit up.

        I'm (still) working toward reducing the stash. I have too much of the Sugar 'N Cream cotton. Decided to make place mats for the picnic table. Starting #1. I found the cutest pattern on Etsy. Square Emily Placemats by Henna Huczkowski.

        My resolution for my knitting year is "no pain, all gain." What that means to me is I'm in it for the fun of it. I can walk away from any project - leave in time out or rip it, no judgement. I'm going to use high quality yarn suitable for the project, luscious and lovely. I'm going to revel in the process and be completely unconcerned about progress.

        Well...

        So there!

        I need to really finish this squares blanket project I had going from a year long project last year. I have made good progress in the past few weeks. I am debating if I want to add more squares for a larger size or just keep 12 squares-one for each month. That's my current project though I'm itching for something new. I am thinking about casting on a shawl for that MAL.

          Your shawls are very beautiful. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

          I’m working on a simple Shawlette, a knit ripple wrap in lace yarn (it’s taking forever), a pair of socks, and a kitchen towel. I still work every day on charity projects, currently scarves and ear warmers, using leftover sock yarn.
