Morning Bloggers and welcome to another post for YOP.
I’ve spent the week reading up on everyones lists and I loved seeing the range of projects and some more have been added to my favourites list lol.
This week I decided to concentrate on catching up on my dishcloths so that I can get casting on more projects in this coming week. With just half a dishcloth to go I’m all caught up. This means that some new projects can be cast on this week.
There are 25 weeks remaining in the year so this will make it easier to keep up with how many I must knit.
I have one from this week to show you as the last two I will reveal next week with my other part of my list, I’ve been adding the final pieces to it and I think its ready now.

This week I have been looking at my projects and thinking about what yarn I want to use, as someone who doesn’t have a huge stash of yarn other than cotton I tend to get my yarn for the projects I want as I go along, this leaves room for me to change my mind. I have an idea of what I want now.
I picked up some yarn for the Advent Garland on my list as I want to make these little mittens over a couple of weeks. I got each ball for 1.49 euro ! A bargain. Its acrylic but will suit this job down to the ground. I may need to get one more ball of each colour I’ll see as I go on but this is going to work out at an inexpensive project I think.
The green is a bit limey but when teamed with the others may be tamed a bit.
So here is the list and as you see not much progress this week but it was all about catching up and freeing up time this week for new projects. I’ve added to the headers how many in each area I’m hoping to knit so its easier for a count and my list has also been moved to the Year Of Projects tab at the top of my blog.
Year of Projects List 2012/2013
Hats :- 0/6
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
Cowls :- 0/1
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 :- 0/1
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
Socks :- 0/1
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
Dishcloths :- 0/25
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 :- 0/1
Smitten A Holiday Garland – this I fell in love with and as family who love an advent calendar I thought this might be different and fun this year, especially if I fill each mitten with a little piece of chocolate for each of the children.
