Year of Projects – my first week

I am a bit late to this party but happy to be joining the Year of Projects group on Ravelry.

In January I read about an idea for getting more projects finished and wrote about it here. I finished one sweater and a hat by sticking to my current projects. And I frogged one of those items.

Then came the pandemic, and working from home, and a new grand baby, losing dad, and retirement. Today feels like a good day for a reboot.

I am returning to this focus on finishing more than I start. Pictured above: Stillness shawl, Yokey Dokey sweater, Half Hansel Hap, and the Engi sweater. I have yarn for more projects and I have sewing and quilting projects calling my name. I am a bit late to this party but happy to be joining the Year of Projects group on Ravelry. I have joined the YOP group (Ravelry link) and created a list so I can check things off. I have been rubbish at sticking to plans like this in the past but seems like a good time to give it a try. Best of all, this gives me a weekly blog post theme. Stay tuned.

  1. Hi welcome! I haven’t blogged in a few weeks. I go from January to December and am also one of the moderators. I’m curious about the Yokey Dokey sweater! What a name!

    1. The Yokey Dokey is a Gudrun Johnston pattern. I traveled to Shetland with her a few years ago and it completely changed my knitting life.

  2. You’ve got some beautiful projects in process there! I hope the group is a good experience for you and helps you to get things done.

  3. Glad you’ve joined us! You have so many lovely projects, and I’m also curious about the sewing and quilting projects you mentioned.

  4. You have some amazing projects on the go! I enjoy working on a small number of projects at any given time. I like to finish one thing before I cast on anything new! Too many WIPs stresses me! I look forward to seeing your progress ♥

  5. Welcome to our intrepid group of crafters/bloggers. So glad you have joined. I love the colours and patterns of your wips. I look forward to seeing them completed and whatever new ones you get to on the way.

  6. Welcome to the YOP group. You have a lovely list. The WIPs you have now………….wow, they have some great colors. It will be fun to watch your items grow and become completed.

  7. Hi Welcome to the group ! I’ve been around for a few years but tend to fall off the wagon but this group is so supportive and forgiving of that sort of thing. I think you’ve got a great list going and I look forward to your progress and also hearing and seeing your sewing and quilting projects too!

  8. You have had a year like me and I too have too many WIPs so I am going to read your article on how to finish projects…thank you! Welcome to YOP! I love that we are getting so many new people which means more inspiration. I love your projects at the top of your post. Your colors are stunning and that is an area where I have a hard time….choosing colors. I may borrow your color schemes as they’re gorgeous! I hope you keep coming back!

  9. CHEERING YOU ON! not only for the YOP, but the reboot. Much has changed these past four months and we can’t move forward with the old plans. Still, all those WIPs and ideas for WIPs look awfully enticing 🙂

  10. So great to have you join us! Your pile of projects looks lovely. We are very relaxed here, you can start when you want and post when you want. We will cheer you on regardless!

  11. So glad to have you joining the Year of Projects gang. I don’t know which sweater above is the Yokey Dokey, but I LOVE that name. And there is so much colorful beauty in that picture above I’m in awe. I look forward to following your progress on everything.
