Knitting for your nest – Crocheting for your crib

Our New Year Make-A-Long is back with a new theme! We’re making things for our homes.

I’m letting you know early because I want to make sure you have time to peruse patterns, pick yarns and colours, and get your orders placed in plenty of time to get everything in before Christmas. Preorders will be closing on November 15th, so you’ll want to make your choices before then.

Suggested projects are (but not limited to): afghans, pillows, baby blankets, baskets, dishcloths, teapot cozies, coasters, mug sweaters, ottomans, bed jackets, slippers, reading socks. Honestly, anything you think you would use around the house.

If you need patterns, just head to Ravelry and search home. There’s a ton in knit and crochet options. I’ve written a few patterns too (most of which are on Ravelry). And there’s some magazines and books at the store too if you want some more options.

The MAL will run from January 1st (kicking off with a quick Facebook Live) until February 28th. It should be long enough to get a larger project (like an afghan) completed or a bunch of smaller ones (like cloths). As with all MALs, we’ll be connecting virtually in our Sweet Yarnies group and our Virtual Knit Nights on Facebook. Make sure to join into both.

Looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.
