Crafting goals: an uber blanket

So the time for newyear's resolutions may have passed but I'm not letting that stop me set some goals. This year I really want to make finish a decent sized blanket. I definitely find that my enthusiasm for a craft project dwindles if it takes too long to finish so I am really pushing myself out of my comfort zone with this goal.

I am aiming for something big enough for my sofa rather than something that could cover the steps of Helsinki Cathedral:

My inspiration has mainly come from Pinterest and I have been madly pinning some beautiful knitted and crochet images:

Does it count as cheating if I don't crochet the entire blanket? Not if it looks this good:

What are your crafting goals for 2012? Are you thinking big or are you going to make one new thing each day/week/month? Are you going to learn something new this year?

Leave me a comment and I'll see what I will comment back with something to inspire you towards your goals!


  1. Great goal!! I have the same issue of when it takes too long I lose motivation. I actually want to make 20 dolls and sell them this year. I love making dolls have some really great patterns.
    Love your blog!!

    1. I am sure that you will surpass your goal Olivia! Can't wait to see some of your dolls on your blog.


Thank you for taking the time to comment, it makes my day!
