Year of Projects, Week 1

Many of the blogs I follow are participating in a Year of Projects group on Ravelry where they set out with a list of projects they want to do that year and post every Sunday about their progress. This week starts the beginning of the 2nd year so I thought I'd join in the fun!!

So this first post is all about the list. If you haven't noticed already or are new to this blog, I like lists, I like creating them to help organize my thoughts, but most of all I love being able to cross things off my list! (On a side note I think I will start keeping my completed items on my To-Do Tuesday posts so that I can see how far I have come & what has actually been completed!)

Anyway, back to YoP... I have a steady stream of projects for stuffies coming in so those are always going to be on my to-do list so I thought with the YoP I would make a list of items that I would like to make that aren't necessarily part of my "everyday crochet".

Year of Projects List
• Floor Poof
• T-Shirt rag rug
• Crochet clock
• Yarn bomb something
• Crochet dress for Adult Prom 2013

This is a start.... We will see how far I get with this :-)

A few questions for those seasoned YoP bloggers... Is there a prompt every week or do we just post on our progress? Lists can be added to correct?

Another side note... On all the link parties I link to I am going to make it a habit of checking out & commenting on at least the person who linked up before me to make things a bit more interactive. I know I love it when others comment on my blog :-)


  1. Okay, this is the first time I've seen "Yarn Bomb something" on a list. Can't wait to see what you do with that ;)

  2. I love your list! Completely forgot I have a set of sheets to make into a rag rug, I should add it to my own list. There's no prompts every week, just an update on your progress :) And YES by all means edit your list whenever! Add, change, remove, whatever it is :) Good luck this year, welcome aboard!

  3. Welcome! I left you a note on Rav, too, but as Nicole mentions, there are no prompts. I usually stop by everyone's update during the week (I don't always get to it on Sunday) and try to leave as many comments as I can, too. You will really get to know the other bloggers who are active in YOP :). I can't wait to see what you make for the purple stitch project!

  4. Welcome...glad you joined us. I too am going to crochet a t shirt rag rug this year sometime....i have most of the "yarn" cut just need to start crocheting it...can't wait to see yours.

  5. Yarn bombing, I am too looking forward to see that... And nice list, by the way. If you like a lot do list, I had a great book, but I just discover it was only in french... sad. If by chance you read french, it's called l'art des listes.

  6. Welcome to the group and I hope you enjoy your year. Great looking list and I'm intrigued by the yarn bombing and the crochet dress, can't wait to see more on that. I normally do my post up every Sunday morning and then link that post (just the post) to the group for that week, someone will start off the week post either a moderator or sometimes someone who has just done there's first, if a moderator hasn't started it they will put a sticky on it so it remains at the top of the group for that week. HTH and don't be afraid to ask, no such thing as a silly question.

  7. I'm new to the group this year too! I love crochet dresses, although I've never made one I admire those who do! Can't wait to see. Your stuffies are adorable (cow - moo!) and I'm excited because I've been looking for a dishcloth pattern and I think I found it in the Sunny Skies pattern you shared a link too! Thanks and good luck this year!

  8. It's great to see another knitter from near my neck of the woods, always excites me! (I live near Farmington, ME) Great list, can't wait to see what you yarn bomb!

    1. That's right down the road :-) We were just there checking out some of the trails in the Jay/Farmington area :-)

  9. Oooh, yarn bomb something, now there's an option I didn't think of. Your list sounds very interesting, it will be fun to see how you do.

  10. Welcome to the group! I love lists too! I think that is what first drew me into the idea of this group! Looking forward to your posts and accomplishments!

  11. Thank you all for your encouragement and comments! I look forward to getting to know you and your lists :-)

  12. I cheat on my list at least once a month. As a matter of fact, I already have, but it wasn't fun cheating, so it doesn't count. Welcome!

  13. Welcome to the YoP bloggers - I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do. Your list looks fun and interesting and I'll look forward to your weekly updates. xoxox
