The Plan for 2020

As far as crafting goes, 2019 was mostly spent noodling around. Process knitting has its own value, and it was good for me to slow down and approach my craft in a new way. However, yarn and projects have been building up, and I am itching to get some things made!

So 2020 is going to be mostly devoted to product knitting. I plan to knit 6 sweaters and 6 pairs of socks. If those get finished before the end of the year, more things may get knitted. But only after. The 2020 motto is “If it isn’t in the bin, it’s a distraction!”

The Bin

The 6 pairs of socks are: Wonder Woman self-striping socks, Scorch gradient socks, USA Olympics socks, stationery set mismatch socks, apple heart self-striping socks, and shark socks. I’m starting with the WW socks, but don’t have a particular order for the rest of them. The shark socks and the stationery set have specific patterns, the others do not. For most of these, I am just doing plain vanilla toe-up socks.

The first sweater for 2020 is going to be the Dockside cardigan from Amy Herzog’s Custom Fit, out of the red yarn. The dark gray cotton yarn is for a Niazuma sweater, and the tweedy yarn on the right is for a Buttoned Wrap Skirt. I know I said these would all be sweaters, but I feel like skirts are kind of sweaters for your legs, so I’m sticking with it.

The Linus linen tape yarn on the left is for Ona, and the blue and lime green on the right are for the Leiden top from PomPom magazine. I’m not too sure about the lime green for the stripes, but that is what I have for now. I’m still deciding between a couple of other options for garment #6.

So that’s the plan. Will I stick to it? Who knows. But I’m going to try.

Are you making plans for next year, or planning not to plan?

  1. That sounds like a realistic plan, some lovely looking patterns in your queue. The bin method seems like a good way to avoid distraction from your whole stash…the test will be avoiding new yarn distractions, which is where I fell down this year.

  2. I think the green stripes will be great. I like your plan this year. I’m mapping out one project a month to cast on, but I’ll allow myself to cast on other projects along the way. I think. I’m still working out the details in my head.
