New Year and a fresh start

As I was not blogging for such a long time, it´s time for a new start now. As you can see the design of the blog has changed and I´ve the plan to post more frequently now.

I´ve improved with knitting and crocheting a bit and started a wee little of sewing.

So let´s start the journey into this new year with some fresh new projects and the will to finish up some old ones.

This is a quite amitious project for me and at the moment I´m loving it. I´ve the plan to crochet a blanchet with my leftover DK weight yarns that are living in my stash and have no direct purpose. I think I´ll have to crochet about 120 - 200 such discs and then join them (or start joining when I have a nice amount). I´m often very happy and full of energy for a project at the beginning but loose interest very fast. My goal is to finish this blanchet in 2011. The start was on 2nd January 2011.
Pattern: Flowers in the snow from Solveig Grimstad

This is my second long time project which I´ve started late November 2010. It is basically a large Granny square with Noro Sock yarn. It doesn´t go very fast, but I love the colours and it is a totally no brainer. The plan for this one is to make a nice blanchet for one person. As the other family members think the colourschanges are terrible I think it will stay mine :) I would like to finish it within 2011 too.

Some time ago I´ve ordered this book (Knitted Socks East and West) online and today I finally got it and I love it. I´ve not jet studied all pattern but looked at the pics and read a bit. It has a lot of pretty pattern and I like the style of most of it. As soon as I find some time, I´ll start with the first pair in aran weight yarn.

And finally my sewing project. But only an esy one. I´ve bought some fabric at IKEA yesterday and want to sew a tablecloth for our family table which is quite large.
Basically it is only to sew in the sides where the fabric was cut, but for an absolute beginner like me it is more than enough to get straight and to get the machine running.

I wish you all a great time and a wonderful first week in the New Year 2011!
