Year of Projects: Week 8

Usually I do my YOP updates on Sunday. However, yesterday the weather gave me a headache and made me annoyed. Which means I’m writing this post on a Monday. Cool story, yeah? I didn’t actually finish anything last week. I’m working on finishing the 4 Good Family Christmas Stockings and my Cute Fight sweater. Here’sContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 8”

Year of Projects: Week 7

A FINISH, FINALLY!! My Chaos Cables is COMPLETE. I know I’m yelling. It’s pretty exciting stuff. We’ve had some unseasonably chilly weather, so I’ve been wearing it inside to keep me toasty. Spouse joked that it looks like a knit straight jacket if I pull it down over my arms… He isn’t wrong. I tookContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 7”

Year of Projects: Week 6

I’ve been plugging away on my Chaos Cables/Handspun mash-up. This morning I started the third of three balls for the cabled section. Due to the depth and diameter of this cowl, I believe it will be prudent to bring in the cowl for the neck ribbing by about half, effectively turning it into a capletContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 6”

Year Of Projects: Week 5

Sorry friends, no finishes this week. I’ve made a bunch of additional masks, did some scrappy projects for wrangling said masks (read more about it here if you want), and worked on two other projects. Justine I’m further than this now. Justine isn’t part of my YOP projects, but I love it and want toContinue reading “Year Of Projects: Week 5”

Year of Projects: Week 4

In the past 4 weeks, I have crossed off 7 items off my YOP list. I have finished many other non-list projects as well. Amusing non-YOP item first. My spouse has lamented that his masks are not the best when he actually has to talk to other people while wearing them. Like they are tooContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 4”

Year Of Projects: Week 3

When I first start challenges, I like to FINISH ALL THE THINGS AT ONCE!! But that is unrealistic and unsustainable. And defeats the purpose of the challenge. I’m not one to stick strictly to plans. This week wasn’t a waste by any standard. I had quite a few bonus projects… an emPower Cowl, and 25Continue reading “Year Of Projects: Week 3”

Year Of Projects: Week 2

It’s been a bit busy around here. Both kids are going back to school, virtually, this week. There is a lot of prep, but luckily, few shopping trips. Early elementary requires few supplies we didn’t already have. I haven’t written a blog post since last week, which was not part of my initial plan! ThisContinue reading “Year Of Projects: Week 2”

Year of Projects Week 1

A Year of Projects: Blog-A-Long I stumbled upon a Ravelry group, A Year of Projects, via another blog: Backstage Knits. Most members’ year runs from the first Sunday in July until the last Sunday in June; they are on week 8. As you can see, I’m a bit late, but that won’t stop me fromContinue reading “Year of Projects Week 1”
