YoP year 5 WEEK FOUR

A little more of a productive week this week!  

I finished the minions slippers ;) 

Bob is super cute, and my friends relative LOVED them…. Always a bonus.

Then I received notification that the test knit I was working on is live ;)

So here are a couple pics of my journey in its creation… And please follow this LINK to find the pattern on ravelry! 

Such a fun and easy knit! 
Happy Sunday one and all! 

Year of Projects YEAR 5!!! Week 3… (Yup missed a week already…)

Slow progress the last couple of weeks.. Finished off a test knit right after finishing a test crochet… I can hardly wait to reveal them both!! Just waiting for them to go live on ravelry.

I did however whip these up for a friend…

These are Bob slippers… Bob is the smallest minion in the minion movie and he has two different colours of eyes… So these slippers do also.  

I am happily jumping on the minion band wagon… Hope to get lots of fun things knit and crochet for Christmas… 

That sadly is all for this week… 

Year of Projects YEAR 5!!! Update number one

I can hardly believe that we are here… At the beginning of year five… It has been a wild ride… I have participated in some capacity or other over the previous four years… And I have made some great connections with other knitters and crocheters!!

Last week I posted about my year five goals and you can find them HERE anytime in the notes section of my blog…

Over the last week i finished up a test crochet hat…

Here is a teaser photo…

I also continued to work on a test knit for Ruth.  Her site is HERE.

This is about as much as I can show you…

The best part?  Right fro pm the beginning I am working on a project from my year five project list!  Test knits for Ruth are list there ;)

Not much else is actively on the needles at the moment… Trying hard to push through this test knit and have it completed really soon… Just past the half way mark now, and the bulk of the progress has happened over the last couple of evenings.

Must go… I look forward to reading about other bloggers lists throughout the course of my no-so-busy Sunday!   Please stop by the year of projects group on Ravelry anytime!

YoPyr4 final update…. AND THE BIG REVEAL!!! 

So this week has been a whirlwind of activity.  I have managed to get some knitting and crocheting done… But no FOs. Not exactly the way I wanted to end of year four… But it is what it is… 

However, here is the exciting news… I have a YoPyr5 list ready to go!!! With patterns and everything!!!  I even managed to assign categories…. I am hoping that this organization will keep me focused :)

Have a terrific Sunday!  

YoPyr4 update… Week 50!

just a quick post to let all readers know that I am working diligently on a test crochet and thinking about next year… What kinds of projects… Etc. 

I am thinking I may have to be a little more disciplined this year and make a more consise list… Not so loose-goosy.  When I am more strict with myself, I am more productive ;)

Any suggestions on what projects to work on or different strategies for staying on task would be more than welcome! 

YoPyr4 update… Week…. 49? 


So since this pattern is live on Ravelry now… Found HERE … I think I can share photos of the test knit I did for Ruth at Celtic Knits


They were a dream to make!  Ruth did a great job creating this pattern 😃

This week I finished a hat I have been working on for a bit too… It is for the dad of a girl that is in the same TaeKwonDo class as my two boys.  

He has been seeing its progress… As I work on it while watching the boys in class… And from anything I can tell, is pretty excited about it. 

  (This handsome head model is my teenager 😃)

This week I also started a test crochet for another gal on ravelry… This is what I can show you for now.  I am looking forward to this being done so I can wear it!! 

Not much progress on the zombie squirrel… Needs to be worked on again I know… But I had some loose ends to tie up with other things… So my WIP pile wouldn’t get too out of control. 

On another note… I found these today while running errands at Walmart with my boys… 

Aren’t they adorable?? 

I got a few of them for coworkers too 😉

YoPyr4 update… Almost there…

This is the 5th last Sunday of yr 4!! 


This week saw some YoP items tackled…

I started a zombie squirrel…


And a hat for a fellow at the TKD school my boys attend regularly… It won’t take much longer I hope…  

There were many other diversions that took me away from my knitting this week though… 

  (Sorry for the fuzzy photo) the wee one (6 yrs old) got his ear pierced…
The older one and I took this awesome selfie before school one day…


  And then there was this early start to my saturday yesterday….

The younger son tested for his green belt in TaeKwonDo.  

He is now attending the kids advanced classes and is headed for great things.  The older one is too… But he has always been motivated… But the younger one… Not so much.  There was a time where I was worried he was going to drop taking TaeKwonDo altogether… But he has finally come around ;)




So with all the business… This photo only makes sense… Sunday morning chill time with his cousin… 


So that is all for now… I hope you have a great week!
