I’m very late to the Make Nine Challenge (it seems to have started in 2015), but that’s nothing new.
Unlike a lot of posts I’ve seen on Instagram, I’m not aiming for nine specific things I want to make. It’s mainly skills I want to learn, with a couple of specific items thrown in there.
- Learn brioche knitting
- Knit a pair of socks
- Make a jumper/cardigan using the super chunky yarn I bought at a craft fair last year
- Learn double knitting
- Make something with a Fair Isle pattern
- Knit something using this book I got for Christmas:
- Make a Belladonna dress
- Make a Strange Signs blanket
- Knit some selbu mittens
I’d say that’s enough to be getting on with for one year, especially considering what a slow knitter I am. Being realistic, let’s say I want to start these 9 things this year and any finishes will be a bonus.
