YOP 5, Week 52



This is the week we do our round up of past 52 weeks of projects.  I pulled all the photos I could find and was a bit upset that I did not take photos of everything I completed.  Yet there were things I completed that are not on the following list too.


2015-2016 YoP list

Socks
Once again I can not tell you how many I will do.  But these are my favorite items to do during the hot summer months here in the desert.  I do know that I need to have 2 pair completed before Christmas as they are gifts.  I already have 1/2 of one pair done and have started on the other pair this week, just to get them on the needles for the road trip.

LOVED DOING SOCKS AND COMPLETED AT LEAST ONE MORE PAIR THAN I PHOTOGRAPHED. OH WELL, GUESS I NEED TO ADD PICTURE TAKING AGAIN TO MY LIST FOR NEXT YEAR

Shawls
Diving In  (this is already cast on, also for the road trip)

WELL, THIS DID NOT WORK OUT SO WELL.  MUST HAVE BEEN BECAUSE I WAS SO FOCUSED ON SOCKS.

SWEATER
After I frog the sweater I started, this is what it is going to turn into.  It even asks for the fiber that I already have in my stash.  But I will be making this longer, as at my age, no one wants to see my tummy.

STILL IN MY WIP BOX.  MAYBE SOMEDAY IT WILL BE COMPLETED.

Sewing items
Another gift for Christmas this year

COMPLETED BUT SEEMS I DIDN'T PHOTOGRAPH IT.  OOPS

Crochet
I have had a request for at least 2 of these for Christmas.  Now that I am not on yarn restriction, I can purchase the fiber for this and get going on them.

YUCK.................I ACTUALLY COMPLETED ONE OF THESE AND REFUSE TO DO ANOTHER ONE.  IT WAS NOT A FUN PROJECT AT ALL.

Wood Work
Staining and decorating treasure box for Wedding in October

COMPLETED AND THE BRIDE AND GROOM LOVED IT.

Ok, lets have a look at all the things I did complete and photograph this past year.

Snowqualmie socks 

 Car socks

 Wedding box

 another Car Socks

 2nd pair of Snowqualmie socks
 Wee Sherlock Jacket and hat
 Clovis shawl

 Baby jacket

 Mermaid Tale

 Car socks #3

USA flag afghan

Of course, these are not in the order they were completed.  I am hoping, next year, to be able to have one file for all my completed projects and I am going to try and learn how to do either a slide show or a collage.  It will be so much neater and easier on you, my dear readers.

I am still working on the socks for my hubby.  I did finally get to the heel and did the fish kiss heel.  LOVE IT!!!!  Once I figured out the rythmn of the pattern, I just flew through it.  I am now on the leg and I let him pick out the pattern he wants.  This may take a while to complete them.  It is a complicated (for me) pattern with lots of cross overs.  I have dropped more stitches than I have knit these past few days.  It is a parallelogram pattern I found in one of my knitting stitches books.  I have done 9 rows of the pattern and it is a 49 row pattern.  Nine rows in 2 days....................very slow going.

I am putting the finishing touches on my YOP 6 list.  I have all the knitting/crocheting things figured out. ( I think)  Now, I just need to put in the rest of my goals for the next year.  I feel like Santa Claus, making my list and checking twice LOL.

Until next time.......Happy Crafting!

  4. It's so much fun seeing so many projects in one post. And so many nice things! I'm loving all over again that Wee Sherlock jacket and hat. I'm looking forward to seeing what you create in the next YOP year, Marsha.

I adore your flag afghan and the tea wallet....amazing projects! Look forward to another year with you! Yes, I need to do collages....I think I will start doing them at the end of every month then it won't be such a big deal at the end of the year.
