In past years I have made huge project goal lists. I’ve had years where I have been successful and years where I have been overwhelmed and unsuccessful.

This year I am changing my motives. I plan to knit a donation hat in lieu of a gift for each person in my Christmas/Birthday list. I also plan to gift them a dishcloth with a pretty note telling them what I did instead of a more complicated gift. I really want to finish up my lingering projects and use up my scrap bins.

I have also changed my craft sale plans. It seems that Christmas items, dishcloths, and hats are my biggest sellers. This year I plan to make a couple of cabled hats, several dishcloths, and lots of Christmas ornaments.

I have joined the Ravelry Project Challenge again the this year with a goal of completing one project a week!

I can often be found with a pile of yarn listening to craft podcasts, music, or an audio book unless there is a NASCAR race on TV. I enjoy crafting handmade items to give as gifts to family and friends. I also enjoy donating handmade items in memory of my Father, Sister, and Grandfather.
