A Year Of Projects 2015-2016



I'm trying to make more of an effort to spend some time knitting and/or crocheting.  A few years ago I participated in A Year of Projects for a while.  It really kept me on track and focused on what projects I was working on.  I'm hoping it will do the same this round.  My list is going to be short, at this point I'd just like to finish a project :).  I'm thinking along the lines of quarterly goals so I can focus on finishing, rather than starting a million (more) projects.

Year of Projects list:
1.  Hitchhiker - this one is a WIP.
2.  summer-flies- still need to decide on yarn for this one.
3. CAL starting July 6: Picnic Basket Shawl I'll finalize my yarn choice for this tonight.
4. Wrapped in Warmth- Yarn chosen from stash.
5. A pair of socks using the two at a time method (new technique for me).
6. Pick two UFOs to finish this summer

I will add more as I think of them/finish projects.

  3. Quarterly goals, great idea. Might steal that for next year. Glad to have you back in the group too. I have the pattern for summer flies but have not done it yet. Will be interested to see how well you like it. I think it is a very pretty shawl.

  6. Good idea to update as you go; I tend to have a vague idea then put more on the list as I go along. NB leads to shouting. Good luck!

  7. I wish I knew someone that wore shawls as I made one and it was a really enjoyable knit. I don't wear them either but you've picked some very pretty patterns. I think you are being smart with your list as I usually go over the top and this year I am all about finishing all those WIPs from years past! LOL!

  8. I really like the Hitchhiker pattern and it's definitely going on my (yet to be completed) list for this year. Yours looks lovely, such a nice shade of blue.
