A 2nd Year of Projects


Well, the 1st of July is upon us again and I can't believe its been a whole year since I started this!! The second year of projects starts today and I have learnt a lot over the past year. Mainly that a very specific list of projects was never going to get completed!!
This year I will be slightly less specific on my projects, mainly because I know that I'll probably change my mind about patterns and there are always new ones being released. Sooo.....

I need to finish the following WIPs....
Peerie Flooers hat
BMC - the very long rows and two balls need Oscar to be sleeping better!
Nonna
Mojo socks
Japanese slippers
Japanese shawl
Girasole baby shawl
Arielle


Then new projects...
Owls jumper - a second one for me because I've worn the one I have to death!
Boreal jumper - for me because I love it!
Boys jumpers - maybe just Guston for Oscar, I have just done one for Alfie, maybe Iain Jr for both
Gloves - definitely for me, maybe kids too - Grove/Shipyard mittens/Dustland Mitts?
Scarf for me - Topiary/Kildare/Oslo?
Stasis pullover - me
West Knits MKAL
Orchids and Fairy Lights - for the Ravellenic Games
Maybe another cowl - Pippi/Inspira cowl/Jig
Still light tunic/Topstykke - I love both of these but am not sure whether I'll ever manage that amount of 4ply stocking stitch!!

Well, here goes!! There'll definitely be lots of other projects throughout the year as well as these. If you want to join in visit the Year of Projects Group on Ravelry!

  1. Some fab projects on there, Becky! It seems most of us have learned to leave the list a little more flexible the second time around :)

    1. Hopefully it'll mean I complete more of it this year without changing things about too much

  5. Very nice list and including finishing what you already have is a great way to motivate yourself isn't it? Good luck!

  8. It's great to be more flexible, it makes it so much easier to stick to your list. I included all my WIPs as well, hopefully it'll encourage me to finish!

    Sorry for the deleted comment, I realised my space bar had broken and it had no spaces in it!

  11. I love your list. I'm really looking forward to seeing you work through it. I find the more blogs I look at, the more my favourites list grows!

  12. A nice organized and well thought out list with variety. I think variety is lacking on my list. Best of luck as we all embark on this mission of a 2nd year of projects.

  15. Nice to see you again--and just have to say that Orchids and Fairy Lights just was added to my favorites. I am thinking it might be perfect for my daughter!
