Year of Projects 2017/2018

A new Year of Projects is upon us!

You can find the group on Ravelry and post your projects on Sundays.

Here is my list of projects I hope to complete in the Year of Projects 2017/2018:

  • Finish my two half finished ponchos.

  • Finish my Carleton Sweater
  • Knit one pair of socks
  • Complete my Charlotte Afghan
  • Make My Rose Valley’s Pine Tree Wrist Warmers (pattern purchased last year)
  • Knit my kids a Rainbow Blanket (yarn and needles  are purchased)
  • Knit the JoJi Mystery Wrap (although the Mystery is over, I still want to make it!)


  • Donate hats, ear warmers and scarves to Hooking for the Homeless (knit, crochet and sewn)
  • Create my own crafting room (dining room will now be MY room!)
  • Refurbish my Singer 301A sewing machine (found at a yard sale)

  • Sew an article of clothing for myself or Miss ME using a purchased pattern  (can be something as simple as an apron)
  • Learn how to use patterns (take Patterns 101 at my local sewing shop)
  • Improve my quilting, sewing, knitting skills by taking a class (in person or completing a class)
  • Go on my sewing instructors trip to NYC in October, visit fabric shops and yarn shops

Looking forward to everyone’s posts over the year!

    Lots of wonderful things you hope to accomplish! And oh my – I love the picture of the old sewing machine. I hope it refurbishes well. I’d love to have such a neat (and usable) vintage machine.

    Your vintage Singer rocks. I had my mum’s old one in the city but we gave it away; it wasn’t working. I hope someone gave it a good home. Great list here and what a nice variety. I have fun seeing what you’re working on. Hug!

    What a great list! I love the variety in your list. I can’t wait to see how that purple poncho comes out. Those colors are beautiful.

    How did I miss this? I guess I need to go back during the week and check….my grands were here so maybe that’s why? Anyway, so glad you are back this year as I always love your projects and you are so inspiring! I can’t wait to see all these projects and lucky you going to NYC to visit fabric and yarn shops? Heaven!
