Top Ten Knitting/Crocheting Projects...

It's been awhile since I did one of these, but since it doesn't look like I'll be posting a FO Fridays post any time soon, I thought it was appropriate :)

Top Ten Knitting/Crochetting Projects I Really Want to Do Sometime Soon
... Leaving aside for the moment that I don't yet know how to crochet and that I have somewhere around 5 WIPs going on at the moment ;)

In no particular order...

Amigurumi Minion How adorable is this? Of course I have to make this for Lars! I think even he might be pleased with getting a stuffed toy for once ;) So as you see - I have to learn how to crochet!

The Knitting Octopus Another in the "how cute is this?!" category.

Color Affection 9075 Ravellers can't be wrong ;) Honestly, I had no desire to knit this at first - it was too popular and that put me off it. But then I saw it IRL... and I was sold. Now I know I have to make it!

Maxine Tee Simple and gorgeous. And as it's knit in the round it shouldn't take too long to knit either.

Wombat Blanket I regretted not having this available last winter. It would have been perfect to use when sitting on our couch. I tend to get really cold feet very easily and like snuggling them under a blanket - even when the rest of me is nice and warm. I've actually already bought the yarn for this, so it's just a matter of getting started ;)

Fleurette Jacket Not sure I could actually pull off wearing this, but it's SO gorgeous!

Danish Heart Folded in paper, these hearts grace pretty much every Christmas tree in Denmark. Obviously I need a yarn version as well :)

Boticelli Red This would look awesome on my oldest sister :)

Summer Grey Cute sleeves and neckline :)

Hitchhiker It's funny, I pretty much never wear shawls, but I love knitting them. Besides, this one looks as if it would be as much fun to knit as the Wingspan... and with a name like that, how can I resist?


  1. Hichhiker is on my list too.

  2. Nice list :-) I love the Maxine Tee, I'll have to add that one to my queue.

  3. Thanks for putting these out there. A couple are going in my queue.

  4. The knitting octopus is adorable! I also like the fleurette jacket ...
