1. learn to knit socks in the toe up format. i've avoided this method for years and it's time to learn a new way of doing socks-if i hate it- i can at least say i tried it and never do it again. besides- i really want to make knee socks and this seems to be the preferrred method when it come to calf shaping etc.
2. learn to embroider!!! i got this great book at ben franklin called "doodle-stitching" by aimee ray
looks like a great book- i can't wait to start! i stumbled across a blog i want to share with you-"one sheepish girl." very inspiring- she embroiders too-click here to see her embroidery creativity!!
3. learn to crochet for reals!! i fell in love with this hexagon blanket. i saw it on ravelry and fogwalker(her ravelry name) used "malabrigo" for god-sake!!! no red heart for this girl- it must be the softest thing ever!!!! here's her project page if you are interested. here is a picture:
now you can see why i want to learn crochet. i really really must have one of these blankets.
i also want to learn to quilt but i think i'll save that for next year. i think i'll be plenty busy as it is. damn- i have chores awaiting-i'd rather be creating........why do these things always have to get i the way of my creativity-why oh why!
