Predictions ’09

Crystal Ball, with socks in my future
  1. Absolutely no resolutions around here!
  2. Undoubtedly ’09 will be the Year of Stash Busting
  3. A safe prediction therefore is that there will be socks. The sock yarn stash is sizable. Enough for a pair a month without having recourse to new purchases, that’s for sure.
  4. Otherwise, I predict a shift to multi-skein projects.
  5. Probably involving greater challenge
  6. I also see a move towards clearing the WIPs pile and having fewer live projects at any one time. This may be a whole-year project, but the pile will come under control at some point.
  7. There will be more spin-to-knit as there is fleece stash to bring under control, as well as yarn.

Socks I would like to knit next year include:

All depends on matching stash to pattern effectively, of course, and I fear I have insufficient solid yarns and also insufficient broad striping yarns to achieve most of these projects. I may be facing a year of “Simple Socks” !

Of course, I have socks on the needles for completion and I may not be rid of those for several months yet. There’s plenty of variety in those – Pomatomus, and Mingus in particular offer a few twists and turns.

I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
