Top Ten Tuesday: Knitting

My blog has been so quiet lately! I've been taking some time to work on things, so I haven't been online much. Hopefully we'll be in more of a routine soon, and I'll be able to write - I miss it!

For today, I'm participating in Top Ten Tuesday at OhAmanda.com.

Top Ten Things I Want to Knit:

1. Mittens
- I have some great self-striping yarn that I would love to use to make mittens for Wendy. I just need to find a pattern or figure it out on my own.

2. New Hat for David - I made him a hat a couple of weeks ago, and I love it, but it is too small. It barely fits him, so I'd like to make the same pattern again and make it bigger.

3. New Hat for Wendy - I don't think Wendy has a warm hat that fits right now, and I need to get working on that!

4. David's Blanket - I started a blanket for David the day we found out he was a boy, and I haven't finished it yet! Other projects have taken over. I really need to get on it & finish it up so that he can use it this winter.

5. An iPod Cozy - I saw this pattern on Ravelry, and I'm pretty sure I could adapt it for my iPod. If you knit - these would probably make good Christmas gifts!

6. Sweater for Wendy - now that I am back in the habit of knitting & have learned some new skills, I'd like to tackle a sweater. I've never made a sweater before, but I think I can do it. All I need is the right yarn & enough time to get it done!

7. Jumper/Dress for Wendy - I have this pattern saved in my queue (I like to use that word whenever possible) on Ravelry, and Steph at Adventures in Babywearing wrote about it last week. I like the fact that the pattern is knit from the top down, so that you can add length as your girl grows - Wendy is growing so fast, it's hard to keep her in dresses that are long enough.

8. Pillow covers - we could really use some pillows for our couch & floor, and I'm sure I could knit something that I would like a lot better than what I've seen in the stores.

9. Socks - I would love to knit a pair of socks! It looks a little complicated, but I think once I finished one, I'd be able to do them pretty quickly.

10. Christmas presents - and since some of the recipients might read my blog, that's all I'm going to say about THAT.

Are you a knitter or crocheter? What's in your list of projects?

Scarves and ponchos are the limit of my knitting experience. I love the idea of an iPod cover/cozy!

I knitted about 6 inches of a scarf once. I'm in awe of anyone that can actually knit CLOTHES...wearable CLOTHES! :)

Good for you! I look forward to crocheting again someday soon. just haven't been able to fit into my life with all the other balls that I've been juggling.

I'm jealous of your talent & of the recipients!!

Thanks for the comment on my blog! :)

I taught myself how to knit and crochet in high school, but I was never patient enough to really stick with it. Even now I have a baby blanket partially crocheted that I started before my daughter (23 mos) was born. :) That's why I sew...you get the end result faster. :)

I'm knitting a blanket shawl for my mom, a cabled sweater for Little Joe (Joey, but don't call him that anymore- too big.), and walls and turrets for a castle for the boys for Christmas. I still have to finish the trees I've knitted for them as well.
