Year Of Projects #10 – week 1, the list!

My very first Year of Projects! I am trying to be realising, and even so, given how slow I am, chances are I won’t get through these plans, nor I will be able to post every week, and even if I do, my progress will be minimal! I am totally bowled over by weaving, so most of my plans are weaving related. Here are my tentative plans for this year – I will refine as I go along and see what actual pace I keep:

weaving

  1. summer jacket for M
  2. summer hoodie for me
  3. summer bias top for me
  4. winter dress in huck lace
  5. double sided double weave
  6. something in Complementary Plain Weave
  7. something in waffle weave
  8. couple of scarves

knitting

  1. (finish) pullover #1 for M
  2. pullover #2 for M
  3. pullover #3 for M
  4. (finish) dress for me

This is a year of projects (YOP) update. YOP 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 if you manage. The objective is to keep track of progress on any fiber crafts with maximum flexibility: 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.

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).

    1. I know it is very ambitious for me, each jumper takes me six weeks of solid knitting every evening, so I’d be amazed if I managed, but do hope to get at least close – thanks for the encouragement!

  1. A lovely first list! Don’t worry if you don’t go very fast or post every week, we are very flexible and just like to see your projects as and when. Thank you for joining us and I look forward particularly to seeing your weaving.

    1. thank you Lucy for being so very welcoming! I am trying to get into the habit of posting more frequently, but not sure whether I’ll keep it up… though I know that looking at all the beautiful things you do will egg me on!

  2. That list doesn’t look too long although to be honest I have no idea how long it takes to weave something. I rarely knit sweaters and the last few I did knit took me two years *each* so I take it back. Impressed by your ambitions.

  3. I think your list is great, there isn’t a standard, its what works for you. I look forward to seeing your weaving progress.

  4. A great first list, and how interesting it will be to see some woven garments. One day when I have a bigger loom that is my dream, but in the meantime I shall enjoy watching your makes. As already said, don’t feel any pressure. 😀

  5. So looking forward to your projects! I am fascinating by weaving, though I have no experience with it. And you knit beautiful things, too! It will be fun to watch what you make over the course of this upcoming YOP year!
