So hear we are! The start of another year of projects year.
This is the post when this years list is revealed.
The hopes for the next years worth of projects are laid down and set out.
In previous years my list was subjected to add on’s, take off’s and just general change abouts. This year I’m hoping to stick with the list for two main reasons really.
1. I’ve laid out the yarn from stash to go along with patterns.
2. By having set out patterns I’m hoping this will leave me free to concentrate on designs.
The set out patterns with stash yarn are there for me to work on when I’m not working out a design or working on a sample. They are something for me to just kick back and knit.
So that will be one part of my list, the second part of my list is my design part. I’m going to be doing it anyway so I figure I might as well include it in the list.
So the list, let’s have a look at it.
Year of Projects 5 List
- Hulst Socks KAL started Jun 21st
- Basic Ribbed Socks
- Time Traveler Socks
- Zigzagular Socks
- Hedgerow Socks
- Vanilla Latte Socks
- Hermione’s Everyday Socks
- How I Make My Socks
- How I Make My Socks
- River Rapids Socks
Over the next 12 months my aim is to publish 10-12 patterns
And there you have it! That’s the list. Very tame by previous years standards but then I’m not showing you exactly what is in the design section….just yet anyway. It has got some things I’m excited about working on so no doubt we shall have the return of teaser part visible shots in that area of the list.
I will also be keeping an eye on the Sock Knitters Anonymous group and the SolidSocks group on Ravelry and I will hopefully be able to take part some of the months. If a month grabs my attention on both then I very well may just add in another sock, for instance July in the Sock Knitters Anonymous group has one literary category which I’ve a couple of socks which would be perfect for but right now my schedule is full but perhaps towards the end of the month I might be able to squeeze one pair in.
I have also been working on a pair of Danu Fingerless Gloves for stock. I have the top ribbing and thumb left to complete on the second glove which I will finish off today.
Over this coming week I am aiming to;
- Sample knit my Dagda design as I have some design changes I want to make to it, write the changes up and get the first draft pattern sent off to my tech editor. So test knitters can be keeping an eye out in my group.
- Cast on and work on the second Hulst sock.
My project page for this YOP year has been set up and can be found here.
