YOP – Year Of Projects


YOP stands for “Year of Projects” – it is a Ravelry Group, and an idea – make a plan for the year ahead for all your fibre activities, then update your blog every week. The lovely thing is that it is flexible (post, don’t post, follow your list, change it) – so really it is just an opportunity to get to know of more blogs and activities of those who share a passion for anything fibre crafts!

From the group page:

In 2011 a small group of bloggers embarked on a journey together, to set themselves a year long challenge of projects to knit or crochet (or sew, or any other craft for that matter!). Inspired by The Purple Purl, one of our mod’s favourite yarn stores, who were knitting through a book, we each set ourselves a challenge and tried to stick to it, blogging about our experiences as we went.

Each YOP starts on 1sy July – I am joining YOP year 10, a nice round number, though I am aghast it took me 10 years to find out about this initiative!

I used to knit as a girl, then hanged the needles for two/three decades, and now I’m back, and loving it! The photo is my version of Linda Marveng's Aki, the first proper project after "being born again". After getting back into knitting, weaving has also become my passion (with a little sewing to turn my handweaving into garments).
