New Year, New Beginning

A new crochet project while the Pieced Throw blocks…

Boteh Scarf

…and some new knitting resolutions for the coming year.

  1. Write more patterns. This will begin with the release of a new cabled scarf pattern, hopefully this weekend. Like my previous patterns so far, it will be free to download but I hope those who knit it will make a donation for however much they think the pattern is worth.

    I’ve got about four different sock ideas kicking around in my head, along with two toy ideas. I want to submit something for publication and also start selling patterns myself.

  2. Knit more sweaters. Remember when I said this?

    I will be wearing a Tangled Yoke Cardigan this fall and winter or I will eat my Addi Turbos.

    Well…Addi Turbos nom nom nom. I have yarn for three sweaters stashed. Time to knit it up.

  3. Blog more. I’m going to aim for an average of two posts a week, or eight posts a month. To help kick this off, I’m going to write a series on psychology and knitting. Tentative topic list, in no particular order:

    • Spatial reasoning I — schematics
    • Spatial reasoning II — charts, charts, charts!
    • Learning and expertise I — the value of effortful practice
    • Learning and expertise II — conceptual v. procedural, process v. project
    • Math education — can knitting really help you learn math?

Those are the big things I want to do with my knitting life. I’m also planning to re-design the site in the very near future, so keep your eyes peeled for that!
