These are the first 25 projects I selected to expand my hand-knitting experience.  I choose a variety of designs and levels of difficulty.  I will try to keep this area updated with my progress on each.

Let me know what you think of my selections, and…
What do you think are the odds that I will complete them all in one year?

  • No chance, no way, no how
  • Maybe, but I don’t know, it’s a pretty long list
  • I give you a 50/50 chance
  • I think you can do it
  • I’m betting on you all the way

  1. Cheryl,

    I’M BETTING ON YOU ALL THE WAY! YOU ARE AN AMAZING PERSON AND AN INSPIRATION TO ALL YOU MEET!

    Kathy

    1. Kathy,
      Thanks for the kind words – I may have to call on you for inspiration as the year rolls on!

  2. I think you can do it. Now get off this computer and get back to it.

    1. Thanks – I LOVE that encouragement! I can’t believe I’m on the computer replying to comments – you are right! I should be knitting away. Glad to have you here though – I hope you’ll join me in my Knitting Marathon later this month.

  3. Hi Cheryl,
    Did you ever complete the Nantucket Brocade sweater. I just started the back and for some reason am now stumped at the BO row. No matter how I do it the pattern now doesn’t align right. Any suggestions. I am probably doing something really dumb but just cant figure it out.
    Thanks.

    1. Hi Merle,
      Sadly, I am not finished with my sweater. I actually started with a sleeve because I wanted to see how my yarn choice would work with this pattern. I’ve been jumping back and forth amongst several of my other projects, so this one is currently sitting idle. I did want to get back to it, so your question gives me a good reason to move forward. I will be working on it Tuesday and if I get to the BO point, I’ll check back with you. What size are you making?
      Thanks,
      Cheryl
