Year of Projects


Recently I saw Field Lilies post about her complete Year of Project (YOP) and I loved looking at pictures of her finished objects.  Her Linen Stitch Scarf is what first caught my attention on Ravelry and brought me to her blog.

There is a group on Ravelry named A Year of Project Blog-a-thon.

I’ve joined and here is my list of projects I hope to finish in one years time!

  • Knit Hats.  In particular:
    • this pattern from Fiber Flux.  I have some Sidar Snuggly in pink and a fair isle that I would like to use to make Miss ME a hat for winter.
    • this pattern from Archives and Old Lace.  This has been in my Ravelry queue for a long time.
  • Hats & Scarves for The Red Scarf Project and Beth’s Hats for Hope.  I have been donating handmade items to these two charities for a few years.
  • Lil Shepherd by Julie Partie. Pattern and yarn purchased.  This will be my first knitted article of clothing (for Miss ME).
  • Knitted Socks.  Recently I was able to get a free class on Craftsy and I chose My First Knit Socks by Lucy Neatby.
  • A blanket for my husband (I purchased the yarn one year ago and have yet to make one).
  • A poncho for me.  In particular these two patterns:

There are so many more projects I want to do, but these are the ones I really want to do!

Check out the Ravelry group here.  The year begins July 1st.

Happy Knitting & Crocheting!

    Welcome aboard. We love having new people join each year. Your enthusiasm is contagious and helps the ‘old timers’ get a spark of new life. Your list is wonderful and will be a joy to watch you produce in the coming weeks. We will all look forward to getting to know you a bit more through your blog.

    I too wanted to do the linen stitch scarf that she posted about and I couldn’t remember where I saw it and I think I put the wrong one on my list as it was a crocheted one I wanted to make. So glad you joined us! We love having more people, more projects and more inspiration! I can’t wait to see the yarns that you choose and the projects that you make! Welcome aboard!

    What a fun list and welcome to our group. Linen stitch always catches my eye and now I have just finished poking around Ravelry and putting a few LS patterns in my favorites! Cheers to year 6!
