2018 Make Nine

Over breakfast this morning I came up with my 2018 Make Nine- nine things I want to sew or knit this calendar year. I admit that two of them are at least halfway done already but this is motivation to finish them up. In no particular order:

 1// Octopus Sweater. I've had the pattern and yarn for this for at least two years.
2// Channel Cardigan. Also had the pattern and yarn for about two years.
3// Finish my Pomegranate sweater in Cascade 220 Superwash Sport. The body is about 3/4 done.

4// Floral skinny Ginger Jeans. I ordered some amazing floral denim like a year and a half ago.
5// Rain-proof Kelly Anorak. Bought the pattern at Black Friday, got some laminated cotton a couple months ago.
6// Black skinny Ginger Jeans. I bought some black denim at my local fabric store (ie not Joann) and washed it with the baby's bibs, so now we have black bibs.

7// Finish up my chevron quilt I've been working on since before my house flooded.
8// Make an underwire bra. I'll be done nursing/pumping soon (like, tomorrow or the next day) so I can wear underwires again! Always wanted to make a real bra.
9// So Faded. I've got 4 of the 5 colors I want to use- the top one and bottom two are Zen Yarn Garden "Magical Dye Pot" and the coral one is Araucania Huasco. Looking for one more speckle to go with these.

There are other things I want to make, of course, but these are right up there. Ok 2018, let's do this!
