YoP year five – week six

  
Well this week flew by… And only four weeks left of summer vaycay!  I am looking forward to it actually… I landed a permanent job in the school board I work for and can hardly wait to start! 

But onto the knitting and crocheting… 

I started and finished a cute little baby sweater….  My project page for it on ravelry can be found HERE.

   
 
It is an open front baby sweater. I made the newborn size… But it may fit babies a little bigger than that…

I continued work on the Rose city rollers socks too. Only another 3/4 of an inch knit though… These will not take a whole lot longer I hope.

  
Intermittent with these socks I am thinking I am going to continue making hexagons for the second stocking… That way that task can be done too. 

So here is where I am so far with my YoP list

YoP YEAR FIVE WEEK 5

  
This week my post is delayed by one day because we have a long weekend here in Ontario this weekend, and this is the first chance I have had to sit down and write something! 

This long weekend, whereas it has been busy it has also been productive.  Since last post I worked some more on my rose city rollers socks and I am now on the gusset decreases.  

  
They still don’t look like much, but that is because they are top-down roll-cuff socks… I love this yarn though… I have made socks in it before and love how it all goes together. 

One thing I did start and finish this weekend is one of two stockings I want to make for my boys this Christmas… I think they were on my list last year… But they are definitely on my list this year… The one in the photo is the one I started this weekend and it is now at this point… I just need to work in all the ends (they are tucked neatly away on the inside so you can’t see them) and maybe do a red trim on the top.

  
The next one I make will be in the same colours, only the red will be where the green is and visa versa.  And it will likely have a green trim at the top.

Should I make one for. Yosef, it will be in a verigated yarn with red or green trim.  Let ends to work in at the end of the project.  

I also have In mind to make a couple if these soon… 

  
They should be quick knits, as they are open at the front and done In a chunkier yarn.  I like making baby knits… They are fast and easy. 

That is all for now… Must go catch up on some blog reading now ๐Ÿ˜‰

YoP year 5 WEEK FOUR

  
A little more of a productive week this week!  

I finished the minions slippers ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

  
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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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. ย Her site is HERE.

This is about as much as I can show you…


The best part? ย Right fro pm the beginning I am working on a project from my year five project list! ย Test knits for Ruth are list there ๐Ÿ˜‰

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! ย  Please stop by the year of projects group on Ravelry anytime!

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

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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