I had to really dig around to find my last years YOP list. I found it and here it is.
Year Of Projects 2012-2013
Use up all cotton yarn for dishcloths (I will give a count of how much cotton yarn is there when I return to my home base)
Complete 3 project bags (I have several bags labeled with the project they are to become)
Complete LaLa Shawl
Complete Comfort Cancer ribbon shawl
Complete Color Affection Shawl
2 blooming pillows
Use up 1/2 of sock yarn (Again will give count when I return home)
So lets see how I did.
I used up 90% of the cotton yarn and gifted all but 4 dishcloths at Christmas.
I completed one project bag but have managed to add more project bags to the groupings
The La La Shawl is still waiting patiently for me to complete it.
I completed the Comfort Cancer ribbon shawl and it is with our cancer ministry at our church.
Color affection shawl is completed and also with the cancer ministry at our church
I made TONS of frilly scarves and sold a lot of them. They were a big hit this year with the ladies that live in my mom's senior living apartments. I have more yarn for next year and hopefully I will be able to sell them again. I already have an order for 2 by Christmas so will get those done in the future.
Did not complete the blooming pillows
The sock yarn is still there and waiting for me to pay attention to it.
So what happened? How did I get so far off the mark?
Let me show you.
Here are some doll clothes I made for the Grand Daughters American Girl Dolls.
They are so quick and easy to crochet.
She loved all of them
Trust me.............I made the entire pair of socks out of this yarn and gifted my Daughter with them. She was so pleased and loves them. She was amazed at how nice the bamboo socks are. They are warm and yet cool and when you live in a climate where it seldom gets below 50 that is what you want.
Here is the completed Color Affection Shawl. Not my favorite pattern to do. Probably will never do another one. I have read where others LOVE this pattern but it is not for me.
Had to knit this Christening Gown and bonnet for our God Daughter. Her mom made me crazy. She started into false labor around Thanksgiving even though this little bundle of joy was not due until Christmas time. I knit on this non stop for about two months. It was a surprise for the family. They had no idea why I kept telling them NOT to have that baby. Once it was done, I relaxed and the next time she went into false labor I told her to go for it. LOL Well, little Grace Marie was born on her DUE DATE!
This was a sweater class I took last July! I put it into a knitting bag and finally finished it in March of this year. It is the Garden Tee pattern that is on Ravelry. I like it but.................I have lost 40 pounds and now it is a bit too big. Ok it is A LOT too big. It was made with Cascade Ultra Pima and I loved working with that yarn.
Ok, this is only 2/3 of the yarn stash I have. As you can see, I am a bit of a hoarder of yarn. The stuff in the white case are all in project bags. The brown case is just stuff I have bought because I like it. I really need to curb myself.
This is the Comfort Cancer Ribbon shawl. I really enjoy making these and this is my second one that I have done.
So what do I have planned for this year?
I really don't know. I do know I have a sweater started for my Grand Daughter and want to make a matching sweater for her AG Dolls. I am finishing up a dishcloth today which has the US Navy eagle on it. I have another Radian Yoke Sweater started as well as a Green Bay Packer afghan. The afghan is for Christmas and that is great, because at 117F it is a bit too warm for that to be on my lap
