Year of Projects - Ravelry

I joined Ravelry at the end of last year. Wow so much to see, so many patterns. Quite overwhelming actually. But oh so nice too! Like walking into a candy store....

I joined a few of their members groups, just to check things out...and decided to definitely go with the 'Year of Projects' idea. The year actually starts in July, but I'm joining halfway through and then I will reschedule in the summer!

So this is my first post for YoP and this will be a weekly Sunday feature on the blog here. To share what I did during the last week. On the "Year of Projects" page here on the blog I will add my planned list as well as links to my weekly updates for those interested to see the progress.

So this is what I worked on this past week : the afghan that I started early December. I was looking for something easy to knit, that takes no thinking, no counting and is easy to pick up and put down at any point. This one surely first the bill. I don't have a recipint in mind (yet) and no time frame for finishing it in....unless the end of the YoP timeline is considered.

I have 6 blocks completed, 4 are blocked and dry while 2 are drying at the moment. I have not yet decided how to join these, there's lots of time for that yet!
The pattern is from 'All Season Throws'

This collection has such beautiful throws and blankets in, it was hard to choose one only, to make.
 I'm using the same list for the 12 Projects in 12 Months group at Ravelry, although I will be adding more goodies to that list soon. I reserve the right to change the lists without prior notification LOL

Welcome to the group, I hope you enjoy it here and joining at any stage is always great. We have some who run their year from Jan to Dec while others run Jun to Jul and it all just works. The right to change is brilliant and should always apply to everything. Looking forward to seeing your blanket come together.

So happy you are joining us! I love the squares for the Afghan - how many do you need to make?

I'm not sure Lucy, I'll decide when I have 10 or so done....or when it looks like a good size, or when I tire of it ;-) I have yarn for 12 squares though. Seeing as it is not meant for any person/purpose I decided to just start and see where it goes. Have never done it like that before, but just to prove you CAN teach an 'old dog' new tricks, I'm doing something different LOL
