Although it may seem unbelievable to those who have not lived it, every potential project in the stash, no matter how long it has been there, was at some time supposed to be “next”.
What creative projects are on your radar this month? What’s next in a perfect world?

First, that’s gorgeous wool in your photo.
This month’s projects are to send some queries, and to finish my blue/purple wool/silk cardigan.
After a month of knitting dishclothes for Christmas gifts, I have picked up the crochet hook and have started a Spiderman afghan that Squirt has been after for about 6 months now. I started on Saturday and am about 1/2 way through with just evening crocheting. I have to say, I am much faster at crochet than I am at knitting. To knit an afghan of similar size for Squirt? He MIGHT get it as a graduation gift. I said MIGHT. After that…who knows. I might actually get to make something for ME. Again. I said MIGHT.
Love it! I have three “nexts” that I just can’t seem to finish, sigh…
Happy New Year!!
In a perfect world I’d be knitting the Katja sweater with the wool you and Rainer dyed for me.
Realistically, I’m going to try to work on a dishcloth (though making 4 rows made my arms hurt, stupid cotton), starting Kyle’s sweater, fighting with my CPH, and finishing up Kyle’s socks. Oh, and knitting lace.
If only I had all the time and money in the world for all the projects in my queue!!
I am doing the finishing work on a wrap Jane Thornley’s feather n fan using the ‘your fairy name’ generator poem for my name.
I am half done with a vest Jane Thornley woven woods vest pattern from her Winter Evocative Guide No. 4.
I don’t know how real life jives with this and if there time for a third project in January.
Hope you have been well.
That quote made me laugh. It is so true.
I have too many nexts to list.
My big looming project is to rip out the sweater i have so close to done, but it too big, for my husband. I thought I was being so careful about size. I have it on my must be done list for today.
I just finished a scarf made from a felted sweater for charity auction. And want to make one for my oldest daughter next.
I want pin down my vest plans — sitting here with a skein of malabrigo worsted around my neck trying to decide if the color is mine or not.
And I have a Kusha Kusha scarf on the needles that I work on here and there.
I love the quote!
After I finish the Noro scarf I’m working on, I’m plan to finish my husband’s sweater that I’ve been working on (or not working on?) for 12 years. I just have the sleeves to knit and then I need to do the button band, block it, and stitch it all up. Sounds so easy when I write it like that!
Right now I’m working on a pair of (to be) felted clogs for my husband’s birthday. Next up is… a pair of felted clogs for my father-in-laws birthday! This is the third pair I’ve made in the last month or so, so I’m almost to the point that I can knit them with my eyes shut 😉 After the knitted clog frenzy, I’m onto socks 🙂
I have a laughing carrots from knitty that I offered at the church service auction in May. The body is done but the sleeves need work and of course, there’s the button band and the buttons. I’m not thrilled with the project but I must get it done before the child it is planned for outgrows it.
I’m working sloooowwwly on a 10 stitch blanket for my 4yo son. He’s always so enthusiastic about my knitting.
I’d rather be knitting a cowl for my grandma to give her next Christmas (you know, quicker gratification) but I found a bunch of ufos when I looked through my knitting things so they’re calling my name too.
I want to put together a project-of-the-month club using what I have in the house, like you did last year. Just won’t start with January. 🙂
I plan to start the Peacock Feather Shawl for my wedding in ~ a year.
Oh, a baby blanket, a scarf….in a perfect world I would get the scarf right the first time and not lose track..or mess up 🙂 I love the yarn though, it’s a beautiful blue…so eventually it will be “next” 🙂
