Perfectly pitched Bev, Thank You  ✔️  ❤️

Oooo.. 2023 is going to be so much fun.

Thanks Bev for all this.

If Santa were to bring me that pyramid of yarn I'd be a very happy bunny!

Thanks Bev - I think this new system should free up time to work on ideas that normally we'd be struggling to fit into a theme.

Thank you to Everyone who provided input into creating this new schedule and to those who were able to host in the 'themed' months for 2023.

I agree, Patricia, with time flying by so fast these days, I might be able to delve into some of the yarns that I have bought that never seemed to get used within the theme I bought them for, or else bought them, just 'cos I liked them, but didn't know what theme they would fit into....haha.

Thanks Bev, I think this system will work well.

i keep having brain waves as to how to use up some of my stash this year. I organise yarn into bags when this happens, so my stash doesn't look as much as it is.  

I'm going to try very hard in 2023 not to buy too much yarn and to use up what I have.  The problem is I can't walk past Spotlight without going in for a quick look and that usually means I come out with more.


Happy New Year.......

Good luck with this in 2023, Sandra!

I have more yarn than I could pole vault over (if I knew how to do it...haha).....and I have gift vouchers from Spotlight and our little local yarn store, from my sons and a friend. If only I could knit faster.

I am really looking forward to seeing what you will create this year in our 'free for all' months....but, as I always say....NO pressure.  :))

Sandra, I've recently started doing something similar. I write down ideas for blankets and then check which colours I've actually got already and separate them out in readiness. I can never resist a bargain though, so I end up buying more yarn that doesn't fit in with any of my careful planning.

Oh my goodness!! I have just realized that I didn't include pink in the CoM.

About a week ago my grandson was watching me knit in purple and asked me which month was pink, as he knows I love pink. I said I couldn't remember, but thought it was towards the end of the year. Today I decided to check which month it was (having ordered more pink yarn on the weekend,,haha) and shock horror!! no pink listed!!

i throw myself on the mercy of the forum and ask if it would be ok if I swapped pink for either brown in May or light purple in November, please?.....because a year without pink, is just tooooo sad.  :((

Oh ha ha ha.... That's such a funny comment Bev - I can feel your anxiety - for me your request is fine ✔️

I think that could be allowed! I'm surprised none of us noticed either.

Personally...I am surprised pink isn't the COM for every month of What's on your Hooks and Needles.  Change away!

Thanks soooo much ladies.....you have made me VERY happy.   :))
