Like most crafters, I like to plan out future projects in my head—long before I’ll ever get around to making them. I’d like to share with you some of the future knitting projects I have rolling around in my head.

I have a thing for afghans. I’m currently working on a Frankie Brown 10 Stitch blanket, in camo/greens/browns.

After this one, my second afghan will be the same pattern, but different colors. I had started making a scrap-ghan years ago, but didn’t like how the colors were coming out. My first mention of this project is in this blog post.

I’m really looking forward to knitting this one. Hence it’s the only one with any pictures attached to it.

The third afghan I have designed (in my head) is what I call my mixed media afghan. The concept of mixed media is using more than one medium to create a piece of art: acrylic paint, water colors, pastels, fabrics, papers, etc. When it comes to this afghan, mixed media to me = mixed stitches.

I have the pattern scheme sketched out, but I still need to do my gauge. And I won’t be doing the gauge until I’m ready to sit down and knit this one.

The stitches will be done in panels, but not separately. This will be one continuous blanket. The stitch patterns are garter stitch, stockingnette, basketweave, purl, moss, and any others I add.

The 4th and 5th afghans are the same style, but different color schemes. They are what I call Pieces Afghans. The pieces for this project are my on-the-go knitting that I take in the car. I will eventually sew these pieces together to make into a blanket. This is also my knitted version of the Granny Square Afghan.

The 4th afghan is made from scrap acrylic yarn. All colors and yarn weights. The pattern is my scrubbie pattern. The 5th afghan is the same pattern, but with a specific color scheme: aqua/bright blue and copper/rose gold. I’m slowly collecting information on makes/models/colors of the yarns I feel will be wonderful for this afghan. I have awhile before it will be time for this one.

So these are personal projects I work on or plan to work on when I need a break. What are some knitting or crafting projects you’re hoping to get to one day?

    Really wish I could crochet. I have a friend who is left handed just doesn’t work for her teaching me. Very talented person you are.

    I’m especially looking forward to the mixed media one. That sounds so interesting with all the variations in stitchwork.

    I wish I had that kind of talent to knit like that! Some of my favorite blankets are afghans that have sentimental value!
