Every month I aim to set myself, and complete, a ‘crafty challenge’ – a personal goal to help improve my knitting and crochet, and to embolden me to react to all the patterns and inspiration that is available on the internet! By sharing this with you I feel more encouraged to branch out and do these challenges by the end of the same month, and hopefully you will be interested in what I am working. Perhaps it will help inspire you to try something new as well?
Get that Moogle pattern written!
I really desperately do want to write a pattern for a full amigurumi Moogle modelled on the Christmas decoration I designed in December. This would be my first complicated crochet pattern and I'm excited to see how it will turn out - though it is of course by no means my first. You can crochet my amigurumi Spiderman doll using the free Ravelry download pattern by following the link - and a couple of other patterns over on my patterns page!
Design, and write a pattern for, a knitted minion phone cover
The popularity of my Totoro phone cover and the fun that I always have when I make it has convinced me that I really should design some more phone covers, and a minion one would look amazing! I have loads of yarn left over from the two pairs of crochet minion mittens that I made for orders before Christmas that are the perfect colour for minions. I have this vision in my mind of how a knitted minion phone cover will look and I really want to get this on the needles to I can perfect it and also write some more knitting patterns.
I want to get these two patterns written this month alongside finishing my jumper and potentially starting a cradigan as well, but these are much larger projects that I should do in my own time and mustn't rush! What are you going to knit/crochet this month?
