I am participating in the 2021-2022 Year of Projects (group found on Ravelry).
In past years, I have found it a lovely group to be part of and it certainly helped push me to finish projects I had let linger.
2020 was the year my crafting took a nosedive and I really didn’t participate.
I’m hoping this year will help get me back on track and complete some projects I have let linger too long.
I am not going to make a huge list of projects (like I have done in the past) as I feel this year will be a year of slow crafting.
Here a my thoughts:
- Finish two sweaters: Audrey’s Cardigan (pictured-Rose Hue & Me yarn)-Button band is all that is left. Moonbow Slouchy Cardigan (pictured-Sage Hue & Me yarn)-Finish second sleeve and seam together.
- Love Note Sweater: I would like to use my 2020 Advent yarn (pictured) to make a lace free Love Note Sweater (paid pattern from Tin Can Knits). I have lots of yarn put aside for additional Love Notes- a perfect layering sweater.
- Layering Garments: 100 Acts of Sewing and Wiksten– I have fabric ready to go…these most likely will be projects after the kids are back in school.
- Jackets: Both the Seamwork Quince and Wiksten Unfolding Jacket.
- Blooming Bunch Stack & Flip Quilt (not pictured). I have fabric from the Blooming Bunch Collection and would like to make Missouri Star Quilt’s Stack & Flip Quilt with it.
- Continue adding my leftover project yarn to my Scrappy Granny Crochet Afghan (and start a 3rd one if needed)
Any other projects that come along will be the icing on the cake, but these are the ones I hope to finish over the year.
Each week (Sunday) the participants post their updates and put links to blogs in the thread on the Ravelry group.
Open to all, please feel free to participate!

It is nice to have you back with the YOP group. While I have enjoyed following you on IG, I enjoy seeing your craftiness also. Your list is great. I will enjoy watching your sewing projects again. Welcome back.
Thank you! I look forward to everyone’s posts!
Hi, I found 2020 a very unproductive crafting year too, so hopefully this will help me get back on track. I really like that Audrey’s cardigan and I’m so looking forward to seeing your quilting progress. I am trying not to go down that rabbit hole at the moment but I’m not sure how long I can hold off!
I’ve been meaning to make this quilt for a year, so hopefully this will happen!

Your list feels doable and totally in line with your goal of slow crafting. I want to make a Love Note sweater too and also bought the Act of Sewing book hoping to jumpstart my past interest in that craft.
Looking forward to reading more of your posts and seeing your makes.
Looks like a great plan. Someday I want to knit a Love Note. I will look forward to reading about your experience.
Your list is lovely – the sweaters are great and I look forward to seeing your sewing. It’s great to have you back!
I love your goal of “slow crafting”!!
I’m excited to see what you share over the next year.
You’ve got this – a totally doable list with lots of room for those add-ons we all find ourselves making throughout the year. Nice to see you here again and look forward to your progress and posts.
How lovely to have you back with our group, and seeing the photo with your daughter made me smile, her smile is infectious. Sounds like a great list. I keep wondering how people convert patterns with lace yoke to no lace because lace seems to open up and take more space so I am interested to read how you do a non-lace version.
Love he idea of slow crafting. I’ve taken to making quarterly lists. A long list just overwhelms me at this point. Interested in seeing your lace free love note. Love note is on my to knit someday list, I love looking at what people have done with it. I don’t think I’ve seen a lace free version.
Your to do projects look great. I want to do the love note and I have a few 100 acts of sewing patterns to do too. I didn’t know about the book so thank you for linking.
