I dont have a list for A Year of Projects. What I do have is a bundle I made on ravelry with projects I’d like to make.. someday. Also I’ve planned out 4 big quarterly projects. This quarter, July 1st to Sept 30 is the Princess Mononoke Pullover. Yes I started it in May but it is less than half done and it needs to get done.
This is the best photo I could post since I am in a middle of a row. This was a few months ago. I think I am close to half way done with the graph . When I take better pics I will talk about adjustments I want to make .
There is this group on ravelry that will be making the Sophie’s Universe blanket in October which is great since that is when I plan start my second big quarterly project… fate 🙂 And October is when I will have extra money from the Halloween orders from my etsy shop 🙂 🙂 Yup, I may have to buy more yarn for this project.
For my current WIPS , I am still working on the Man hat. I love how this yarn is knitting up. My YOP friend, Becki told me Saturate by Premier Yarns is discontinued. Which broke my heart 😦 I have one more skein of the color below ( agate) and 2 others (Zinna and Fluorite). So I will be extra picky when it comes to projects for those.
And for another group (GEMS) I am making a crocodile scarf…. The CAL of the month is the Dragon/Crocodile/Alligator stitch. Where was this CAL when I made the Mermaid Cowl..lol This is the tail.
I could also finish the crocodile fingerless gloves I started back in January. We’ll see 🙂

Great idea to have a big quarterly project. Your pullover looks lovely!
I wonder what makes yarn companies decide to discontinue a certain yarn. I find that often it’s one I absolutely love. Right now I’m contemplating putting that crocodile scarf on my list. Can’t wait to see yours once it’s done.
Looking forward to seeing your Pullover 🙂
I really like the looks of your pullover. Quarterly goals is a grand idea. It makes me sad when a well loved yarn becomes discontinued. There are some yarns out that need to go away but no……….they are still here lol.
You are already knitting sweater?!? I am very impressed. it looks like a fun sweater to wear. I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news about the Saturate yarn. I just saw that it was discontinued when I looked it up on Ravelry. Reading how much you love it, I feel kind of sad that I never even had a chance to experience it. I love the combination of colors in the yarn you’re using to make the Man Hat.
All your work looks really nice. I’m especially interested in seeing how the crocodile scarf turns out.
You certainly took off with your knitting! A sweater and it does not look like an easy one….good for you! i love the man hat! I was looking for a pattern for gifts for the men in my family and that is perfect! i started it last night and have 3 inches done already. A very enjoyable knit so far! Thank you for the links. I love the idea of quarterly projects for the big items. Have a great week!
I love all of your projects and your sweater looks gorgeous, can’t wait to see your progress on that.
I’ve turned my knitting projects into seasonals. I think it works better for me that way!
