Before I start today's post I would like to take a moment to let you know that I am not crazy. I may have sounded a little crazy in my last post. I swear I am not! I am just frustrated and I hate assholes. :)

I can't believe in a few days we are going to say goodbye to 2010 and say hello to 2011. As we get closer to the new year we are all going to start thinking about the good and the bad times of the past year and start laying out our plans for the new year.

I have already started to think about my knitting plans for 2011. 2010 and was my year to challenge myself and now I am thinking about if I really challenged myself in 2010 and how I am going to push myself harder in 2011. (My review of my knitting projects for 2010 and my plans for 2011 will be in future posts.)

The one special project that I have on my to do list for 2011 is to make items for soon to be born nephew. I guess he is actually my great nephew, because is going to be my nieces' son. I am excited for his arrival. I don't have any children of my own and my niece is the offspring from my siblings.

He is expected to arrive the first week of March, so I need to start thinking of I ideas now. As we all know that I am the queen of procrastination knitting. FYI Baby Olivia still doesn't have BSJ. Hopefully I can get the knitting done on that this weekend, so that I can give it to her this week as a xmas present.

I keep going back and forth about what I want to make him, so I am asking you for your help. Please take a moment to vote on what I should make for him (his name is Mason).
  1. A Circular Blanket

  2. A Lucy Blanket

  3. Doctor Who Baby Blanket

  4. Stockinette BSJ (an interesting twist on Elizabeth Zimmerman's pattern)

  5. No Hole Hexagon Sweater
If you don't like any of the ideas that I have mentioned above feel free to suggest other patterns. I open to anything!


  1. Yes 2010 is on it's way out and it's time to decide how to make 2011 memorable. To all of you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    Yes Trina and I are going to be great aunts. I think you should make our nephew the hexagon sweater (5).

  2. Oh yes. I love your poster girl for the vote.

  3. Oh, goodness, now I'm wondering if I should start my own list for 2011.

    I vote BSJ -- fairly quick (for me, at least) and not to hard. Maybe we do one together?

  4. @jlmason63 i like the hexagon sweater. maybe i can ask my crocheter to help me with that

    @the younger rachael i want to try an advance bsj. one with a fancy collar or stripes
