We made it to the end of 2020, everyone! We all deserve a big cheer! As we look back over this momentous year we’re also looking forward to 2021 and what our crafty goals will be in the coming months. I asked everyone on the WeCrochet team about their crafting resolutions for 2021 and this is what they said:
Zoey, Graphic Designer:
I also would like to learn how to cross-stitch!
Sara, Brand Director:
Can my resolution be to do whatever is needed to get Regan to write the patterns for his amazing projects? Partly joking, but mostly serious. Whatever help you need or questions you have, Regan!
My goal for 2021 is to experiment with more yarns in different weights and fiber types. When I look back at my projects over the years, I realize I make a project I really like with a certain kind of yarn and then just keep making variations of that same project. I spent all of 2019 making lace garments with Curio #10, most of 2020 was colorwork with Palette, 2021 is my year to do a better job mixing it up!
Here are some of Sara’s 2020 Palette sweaters:
Camden, Magazine Director:
I want to finish my Bobble Diamonds Throw and start on one of the next projects I have lined up (one of the following: Winter Mosaic Pillow, Pulmu Pullover, Macchiato Poncho, or Macchiato Sweater). Also, it would be great if I could finally make the Unicorn Softie that Amelia has been asking about since she saw a photo (which would mean making the Deep Sea Creature that Javi wants).
Producer Sarah, Digital Content Creator:
In 2021 I’m hoping to expand knowledge and skills with new crochet stitches. I’d love to learn C2C. I’m also hoping to try a crochet garment. I’ll probably start with a small, kid-sized crochet garment.
Katelyn, Outreach Coordinator:
Typically I don’t make resolutions but this year, with everything going on in 2020, I think it is a good year to try. Rather than picking a new stitch or project that I want to do, my resolution is to go through all of my WIPs. It is time to get rid of any WIP that isn’t bringing me joy anymore! I can use the yarn for something else rather than having it in a bag, sometimes for years!
Make a long sleeve, color work sweater. I have knit like 7 knit sweaters I’ve made during quarantine, I should make a crochet one.
Heather, Marketing Coordinator
Last year I made a goal to design a crochet pattern, and I designed two! This year, I want to design a garment pattern. I also want to figure out a yarn organization system that works for me (because boxes and bags are NOT cutting it!)
The first pattern I designed in 2020 was the Tuff Puff Rainbow Wall Hanging.
