All Sorts//Year Of Projects

So my year of projects list looks like this:

- yarn bomb something
- fair isle
- socks
- cables
- lace shawl
- cardigan for me
- gloves with fingers
- knit in public as much as possible
- knit a giant bag
- knit a hat in the round

I have made some progress, even if it's not alot.
I yarn bombed just this week for valentine's day:
I have attempted both knitting a hat in the round AND cabling, in the same project:
I have signed up to do a fair isle class with The Woolly Brew next month; I am very much looking forward to learning a new skill.
I knit in public every week when I go to pick up my wife from work; I just don't have many photos of me doing so - maybe I'll try to knit in places where I can get photos.
I've attempted socks but failed because of needle size; however I have the right DPN's now so it's just a matter of bravery. I haven't attempted gloves with fingers yet. I have a bag pattern that I love so hopefully sometime soon. I haven't started a cardigan for me yet BUT I am knitting my Cadbury Owl sweater!!!
So really alot of progress, I'm really pleased with how my list is going. If you're not playing along with Year of Projects yet, come check us out on Ravelry.

  1. Sounds like you're doing really well on your list! I love the hat, it looks great.

  2. Wow, that's 4? Of your goals completed already. Nice work! I've never yarn bombed, but I see lots of fun ideas on Pinterest.

  3. Great progress and good luck with your socks! They aren't that scary once you get used to them.

  4. Yay!! Knitting is public is definitely the only way to go :)
