I almost always am crocheting, but rarely for myself. I do have a sweater two thirds of the way finished that has been sitting in a bag beside my bed for a year and a half. I am usually making things for my daughter’s preschool, my shop, friends, other family members and my kids’ friends. Not much time left over for something for me, but if I had all the time in the world I would start here:
1. Amigurumi Balloons
I love looking at these cute balloons from Planet June. We used to have a birthday tradition of balloons for kids for birthdays that Daddy would bring home. Perhaps I can get my act in gear by the next kid birthday in December to make six of these.
2. The Open Weave c1 (Complication #1)
I want a hat with lots of texture for myself because it is always windy walking my older daughter to and from elementary school. This might be the one.
3. Spiral Potholders
I love the spiral effect of this potholder and would love to experiment with the process that give this look. I could also use a couple new potholders for some variety in color.
4. Swiffer Reusable Cover
I have a Swiffer I never use because I cannot justify the expense. This would solve that issue. I would also like to make some of these http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=39434382 for my church that uses them to dust the pews.
5. Griddle Hat
Ear flaps might make this hat a bit silly on me, but that could be fun and warm.
6. Valentine Basket Sachet
I saw this and it reminded me that I have the directions printed out for making something like this with paper. I am wondering if being left handed will confuse me when attempting this pattern. I once made an afghan that had parts to be braided and had a hard time figuring it out.
7. Owl Potholder
Another potholder. This one in the seemingly ever popular own theme.
Would these be comfortable? I have not made a pair of socks before and these colors don’t appeal to me, but perhaps something with blues and greens would.
I would love to have time to make some sweaters for myself. Perhaps a neutral cardigan like this one.
Here is another sweater, this time a tunic instead of a cardigan. Maybe the color in the photo is attracting me to it since I like that aqua.
