Crafting Goals & 20% off Code for Etsy

Happy New Year Everyone, hope you’re not feeling to hung over from the celebrations last night!
I have been thinking a lot lately, about the direction I want to take my crafting, and I have decided that if I want to improve on my skills and get a much more better understanding of the crafts I do and love, I need to give myself a good kick out of my comfort zone.
So with this in mind I have compiled some lists lol
Knitting
·         Conquer fear of DPNs {have already made a start on this one}
·         Stop being a wimp of socks and actually make a pair!
·         Cables
·         Knitting with more than one colour yarn at once
·         Garment adult sized {lol}
·         To better my actual technique of knitting, because at the moment I really don’t have one
·         Teach myself to read a knitting chart
·         Have a go at colour Motifs
·         Knit using more textured stitch patterns
·         Design a knitting pattern of my own.
Crochet
·         Turn some of my Amigurumi designs in to actual readable patterns
·         Finish my vintage granny square cape
·         Design some garments
·         Have a go at more crochet Stitch Variations
·         learn Tunisian Crochet

Spinning
·         Educate myself  and dedicate more time to my spinning wheel
·         Actually pull my finger out and paint the wheel itself

Everything else
·         Give my sewing machine more attention, teach Sophia how to use and care for hers.
·         Improve my Embroidery skills
·         Expand my Rainbow yarn range
·         Actually produce a lot more finished objects then I have this year!! Lol
Personal Goals
·         Better time management
 {stop wasting so much time talking about crafting and actually get on and do it lol}
·         See a project through to the end.
{not get bored half way through, and never pick it up again}
·         Write things down clearly so when I go back to my notes, I can actually understand my own instructions lol
·         When I have an idea jot it down straight away, to avoid hours of trying to remember what it was at a later date.
I am sure there is a lot more lol like lose weight and exercise to name but a few {but let’s not think about them yet! *grabs another biscuit*} I have to say I am really excited about what lies ahead this year, and to mark the occasion I am also giving 20% off in my Etsy shop with the Code NY2012 for the rest of January.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  4. That's a lot of goals but I'm sure you can do it. I totally join you in your aim to knit socks. My sister knits beautiful socks and I really want to learn as my husband and I love wearing them.
