2017 To Make List

This is a record of the makes I plan on completing this year. I thought it would be nice to keep a record for myself – because last year the list kept spreading over multiple posts and I didn’t actually get much of it made.

I hope it inspires some of you lovely readers to. What are you planning on making this year? Leave your links or lists below….

Current To Make List:


1. Then I want to finish a Star Wars scarf WIP I found in my wardrobe while tidying last weekend. Scarf knitted and blocked. Now just needs a fabric backing sewn onto it so that Lily can safely use it when she’s a bit bigger! Based on the reading from this link I need to find a matching weight fabric and use hand overcast stitch. So I’m thinking a cotton weight fabric should work nicely. Starry night from Ebay – but must check my fabric stash first for any alternatives.


2. Chunky Knit Blanket. This hasn’t really got a pattern to it. But we’ll see what happens.

3. This freebie lace shawl pattern. This would be my first lace pattern. So pretty exciting. Yarn came free with mag and needles purchased.

4. Knitted Baby Shawl. Japanese pattern from the Knitting and Stitching show in baby Alpaca Yarn…



5. Jumper for Lily.

6. Hat Scarf Pattern from the Knitting and Stitching Show. It’s a swirly patterned hat and will look fab for next winter.

7/8. Bunny Jumper for Lily and one as a gift for a friend. it should be a pretty speedy knit! It’s in the Feb 2017 issue of the Let’s Knit Magazine. I’m planning on knitting the smallest size. It has some adorable bunny ears on the hood!

Yarn ordered. Going red and white!

9.Cardigan for Lily. This was a knit that my hubby spotted while we were in the knitting shop in Street and I agree that it’s super cute – especially the ears on the hood! 


10. Toe Up Sock Pattern

This is a Ravelry Pattern and part of my attempt to really get to grips with sock knitting this year.

11. Freebie shawl pattern using gorgeous Carons Cakes yarn.

Found on Hobbycraft website as a free download.  Although it’s mainly an excuse to knit something with this yarn… So if I find another Aran weight pattern that I want to knit this one might get binned – just so many absolutely amazing patterns about at the moment!

Yarn and needles required.

12. Cabled Knitted Hat from Love Knitting Magazine.

I think this would be a beautiful way to practice my cabling. Hopefully I have enough yarn in my stash….

13. Cardigan for me from Love Knitting Magazine.

With this yarn… How beautiful!

Love is Love
