The 'A Year of Projects' project

Hello.  How's your day going?

I've had fun today putting together a list of things I'd like to make this year as part of 
'A 2nd Year of Projects'
This is a group I found on Ravelry and thought I might join in with.  I have been a member of Ravelry for a few years now (I am Juleshar over there), and never really done much with it, I haven't put projects up or used my page much at all.  I'd like to be more involved, but haven't spent the time working it all out yet, maybe this will spur me on!

Anyway, here is my list of things I'd like to make or finish by July next year, it is pretty basic but I like to leave some room for spontaneous makes as well!

1. Finish the Weekend in Stockholm blanket, so far made 33 squares out of 80.

2. Finish the Mini Squares Winter Blanket, so far made 130 out of 600!!! squares.

3. Finish Magic Square knitted blanket, so far made 55 out of 96 squares.

4. Finish the Colourful Lacy tablecloth, so far made 11 out of 100 motifs.

5. Use up my stash of sock weight wool, I can't see myself knitting these all into socks, so I thought I might think of something else to make it in to.

6. Knit up a set of tea towels using the linoleum pattern.

7. Crochet another Star Stitch blanket.

8. Crochet a mixed stripey blanket.

9. Little crochet flowers and embroidered buttons.

umm....I think that will do for now.

I really like to make blankets if this list is anything to go by!

See you later!


  1. Ooh I've joined this too. I love the projects you've got on the go! The lacey tablecloth motifs are gorgeous!

  3. 130 out of 600 squares ... you are one crazy woman!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (in the nicest possibly way).
    Good luck with your Year of Projects, I think it's an excellent way to keep on track with things that you want to achieve.

  4. I am totally exhausted just thinking about your list!! The tablecloth motifs are lovely. Did you make them up? xxx

  5. All your projects are very inspiring! I will have to check out that group on Ravelry. Love that gorgeous pile of sock yarn.

  6. Wow, you're going to be busy but your list is lovely. I will look forward to seeing these great projects.

  7. I am inspired by your blog! and enjoyed by your work! pleace tell when you know what to do with the sockyarn ;0)

  8. Welcome to YoP!!! That's a great list and I love your sock yarn stash - there are a couple of amazing balls there *drool*

  9. Welcome to the group. You've got an impressive list going. Wow, sooooooooooo many squares. Love the knitted magic square? Never heard of a magic square, is it like a Mitered Square?

  10. Great list, and I love the sock yarn, its so bright and colourful.

  11. Wow! I came across your list today just as I was thinking about what I've made in my first year since learning to crochet and what to make next.... The projects you have going are beautiful and I hope you get to complete the list - it's seriously inspiring!

    Love the colours of the sock yarn you have too (also slightly jealous!) :)

  12. I love your blog. I've been a fan of Lucy over at Attic24 and you both remind of each other so much. Where can I find the pattern for the Colourful Lacey Tablecloth flower? I love it and am too new to crochet to figure it out on my own :).

    Thanks so much, Jaymie
