One thing that I have had my eye on for a while include Poppy by Ysolda Teague. This little doll is so cute I think it would be very fun to make and see her personality come out.
On quite the opposite end of the spectrum I am dying to work with some Knit Collage yarns, like their new line Cast Away. It is a very soft and colorful hand spun 100% wool yarn. It is so pretty when all balled up and waiting to be turned into something cozy.
The to-knit list for 2014 is going to be spectacular.
