Welcome, welcome welcome, one and all to the first post for a new year of Year Of Projects or YOP.
We are now entering our second year and if you want to know more check out our group Here on Ravelry. You are all welcome to join in all you need is a blog and a love of knitting/crochet and off you go.
Working off last years list I was delighted with my progress but those who know me well will know how ambitious I am and always have lots more on there than is possible to complete with my schedule. The items that did not get complete and ones I still want to knit have been moved over to this year’s list and others I lost interest in have been dropped.
This year I aim to make my list a little different, there are some items I wish to knit but I don’t wish to pick out patterns for just yet and others I have a few and will pick one or two of, so although it may look like a lot some of them won’t make the cut as when the time comes they may not appeal.
The other thing with my list this year is I have another part to add onto my list in a couple of weeks and can’t just yet but all will become apparent. I certainly think I have enough on this part to be getting on with lol. The items on my list highlighted will lead you to the pattern.
Year of Projects List 2012/2013
Harry Potter Hufflepuff Beanie – just one left to complete the collection
Rib-A-Roni – I have yarn to knit three of these for the three younger children
Hermione Hearts Ron
Slouched Tuva Hat
These are a few of the patterns I like but I’ve not picked which one or indeed how many of them I will knit, that is to be decided when I start on a cowl.
Eirin Cowl – these also have a pattern for fingerless gloves which I love also
Rhosyn Cowl – these also come with a pair of matching fingerless gloves and a headband
Pendleton Cowl – I love the colourwork in this one
Fingerless Gloves :-
I want to make one pair of fingerless gloves this year, more if I get the time. Again these are some of the patterns I have in mind but I’m undecided on which one.
Victoria Fingerless Mittens
Susie’s Reading Mitts
Hermione Hearts Ron Fingerless Gloves
I would love to knit a good few pairs of socks but that not may be possible so I shall aim to knit this pair anyway and anything over that shall be a bonus.
Hermiones Everyday Socks
My aim is to continue knitting one a week until the end of December. This post I’m moving here to a Sunday and I’m making it part of the projects as it will be something I’m doing.
Advent Garland :-
Smitten A Holiday Garland – this I fell in love with and as family who love an advent claendar I thought this might be different and fun this year, espeically if I fill each mitten with a little piece of chocolate for each of the children.
That is it, I have one other part to add onto this list as I said and I will add that on in two weeks time.
This last week now I did concentrate on getting some cloths done and I’m nearly up to date. I just have two more to do and I am all caught up again. Here is a picture of the two I got knit this week.
Again it is Grandmothers Favourite pattern.
Thats it for this week. This coming week I aim to continue getting up to date with my cloths before settling into things on my list.
I’m off now to check round on all the other participants and see what wonderful items they have planned and I wonder how many more will be added to my favourites pile on Ravelry lol.
