Love Your Library Challenge: 2015 Edition


Are you in? This will be our third (!!) year of attempting to make better use of that library of knitting books and patterns we've been collecting! In an effort to stay better focused, I've decided to focus on four toy pattern books I've had in my stash for ages. Now the rules of the challenge haven't changed--it's still the same challenge to actually use the books, patterns, and magazines we've collected over the years! But I'm doing a little experiment to see if focusing on a smaller subset of my library will make me more successful. Fingers crossed! The other change I'll be adopting this year is posting weekly on my progress--so be sure to visit every Tuesday to see how I'm doing and to show off your own progress! (if you'd like a button to snag for your blog, feel free to snag the "Love Your Library" image on the right)

Now, on to the books! During 2015 I will be knitting out of:

  5. I may have cheated a bit and bought a while slew of patterns that I've been planning on knitting from my stash, but they are in my library now, so it totally counts. Looking forward to joining in.

  8. Wow, what a great idea! I'm in! And it works out that this is the year I want to knit down the stash (which is so, so much sock yarn) and most of my books are sock patterns. Woohoo!

  10. I love knitting cuddly toys, in fact I've got the knitted monsters and the farm yard book. I did the Knitted Chickens featured on the front cover of your copy of the book.

    Good luck with it. I may have to join you on this challenge. :-)

  11. This is great as I have started on the Itty Bitty book and have plans to make lots of toys! Fun is in our future! I also have several other books; Spud and Chloe on the Farm and I'll have to go searching for a few more although one book is probably good for me as I am a slow knitter.

  13. This sounds like fun. So far I have 5 projects knit from my library, if you count a stitch library book that I'm using for grandson's neckwarmer.

  14. I love our library! Let's not forget about the Interlibrary Loan program; if your local library participates then you can get books from other libraries. I really must get my personal library in order, so I can use it more.
