We made it! Another year of projects is in the books. What a year it was for all of us. We will be posting our new year of goals on July 7th. So if you are interested in joining in on the fun go HERE. You must be a member of Ravelry, (which is free), in order to access this link. Please come and join us. We are not just a knitting or crocheting group. We have cross stitchers, sewers, painters even some gardeners. It is so much fun and getting to meet people from all over the world is probably the best part!
I have been in YOP since it's inception and love it. The people I have 'met' and the inspiration I have gotten and the encouragement I have received is the main reason I continue with it. No where else can you find such a lovely group of crafters. We have all had our share of joys and sorrows. That is life and yet we support each other through each of those times of or lives. Thank you fellow crafters for your support over the past 8 years!
This is the week we do our wrap up of the past year (For those of us that go from July to June) Since I managed to complete 73 projects, there is no way I can put a photo of every project completed in this post. Well, I could, but who wants to scroll through that many photos?
First up, my list of goals for this past year:
Do not buy any more yarn. ( there are 10 skeins of sock yarn on the way that was ordered a week ago) I don't even want to talk about this. Last count I had well over 21,000 miles of yarn in my stash and that is not all of it. I stopped counting after the DK, Fingering, Lace and Worsted. Hello, my name is Marsha and I am a yarnaholic.
Finish up what is on my needles/hooks. (2 shawls, 1 scarf, and 1 pair of socks) Frogged the socks and one of the shawls. Still have 1 shawl on the needles but finished the scarf.
Make a sweater for our cooler weather here. (a sweater is all we need here for winter) OOPS, made a sweater for the summer.
Continue making shawls/lapghans for the prayer shawl ministry Did this
Make socks Well, yes, I did this too.
Sew project bags Did this with gusto
Work on other crafts (plastic canvas, egg carving, ornament kits, etc) Failed to do any of this
Make a Christmas ornament for each of the Grands Sure did only to find out only 1 of them puts up a tree! Kind of broke my heart.
And other items as they strike my fancy. Good disclaimer to add each year as I always.....................SQUIRREL!!!!
PS: I just found out, my Brother's oldest son is going to make me an Aunt again! My Brother would have been so excited. I know I am!!!!!!!
