2020 – 2021 Year of Projects START

A year of Projects

This is my first year of taking part in the Year of Projects. I discovered this group through reading Highland Heffalump‘s blog posts and I decided that it sounded perfect for me as I have a long list of projects to do.

Basically what it means is that every Sunday I am going to try and post here about what progress I have made in completing some of these projects, if any! Haha.

Taking another cue from Highland Heffalump I am going to try and come up with some sort of Key so that I can have icons next to the projects so that we can see what state they are in at a glance.

So that is my (what feels like SUPER LONG) list of projects. I actually don’t expect to do all of these in a year because I have a huge stash of embroidery things that were all given to me and while I want to work away at them slowly. My knitting, spinning and crochet always seem to take preference.

I hope that you are not overwhelmed by this post.

Peace and Love,
Happy Crafting!

  1. I make lists for almost everything too but for some reason when it comes to yarn, I just keep it all in my head and I’m somehow able to remember it…maybe I just feel like if I write it down I’d have to admit that I have too much yarn 😀

  2. A lot of projects but it’s good to have it written down somewhere! I don’t think I have a single list where I list all the projects I want to make…I have a few patterns in my queue on Ravelry but I have a lot of projects where I have the yarn, I know the what I want to make with it, like a bag, but I just don’t have a specific pattern picked out yet so I keep a lot of that in my head.

  3. Yay for Vanilla socks!! I also mainly do vanilla socks. This is because I most commonly knit for my husband and he’s pretty hard on his socks so I don’t want to do something pretty and fancy and then he just felts them through wearing. 😂


  4. Oh good, another sock knitter! So I won’t feel lonely, posting vanilla photos all the time because socks are the fastest projects to be finished. LOL. I look forward to seeing your progress.

  8. Fantastic list! This will give you so many choices. I see you are a sock knitter…………I think 90% of us are sock knitters. Your variety of crafts is amazing and will be a pleasure to see what you do each week.

  9. A lovely list, I like a long list! Lots to choose from. I will look forward to seeing your progress.


  10. I love your icons, it’s great to see someone else who has such an eclectic mix of crafts and who has ambitions like mine. Your handspun sampler is already looking very pretty. Sam in our group is another cross-stitcher and some others also do a few pieces now and then so you’ll be in good company there. A great first list.

  11. Too much time haha! As long as I have the housework done and the cooking done, I am probably crafting.
    The socks are a big pile up, I initially bought them as a challenge to see how many I could knit during lockdown but I gave myself a repetitive strainn injury doing that so i have slowed down.

  12. Congrats in your first list! It looks awesome. I love the variety and I’m thrilled to see another cross stitcher. I look forward to seeing and being inspired by your progress, I’ve been on and off the project for a while and it’s lots of fun, Enjoy your first year!
