A Year of Projects

YOP4 week 38


I can’t wait until for year 5… I have so many ideas for my hook challenge 🙂 I will post more about that in a few weeks because I want the A year of projects ravelry group to join in too.

Now for my updates…. As I mentioned in my WIP post , I have been searching for a K hook size project that I loved. I finally found one! I was set on just making curtains for my porch but realizing I have 7 windows , I decided on something else.

I love this bag. Pattern is by Jennette Reid .

My Boston Bruin blanket is coming out well… and fast. I’m almost done. I think after I make the rest of the yellow squares I will stop for a few months. Its starting to warm up here so I won’t need it.

I made all these squares over the past few days.

WIP- YOP week 37


After months of looking for the right K hook project for my hook challenge, I finally found something.

I found this pattern on ravelry . Candy Apple Fall Cabled Baguette. I need a new bag badly so this perfect.

I am using yarn from my stash. I’ve had it for about a year. Lion Brand Hometown U.S.A. in Minneapolis Purple. There only a few rows to go.  I will be stitching to black for the trim and handle.

Getting back to my YOP list: week 32


There aren’t that many weeks left for YOP ( a year of projects ) . My list has been edited a few times and I also have a 15 in 2015 list ( not part of YOP) . That list if for the patterns I bought last year. I figured its time to make a dent in the list.

Last week I started a project for my hook challenge… With Hope Scarf . This is one of the projects I added since I didn’t like the other project any more. I used a J Hook and Dark Orchid yarn by Red Heart.

Some how I missed 2 arches. The pattern called for 21 and I make 19. I have no idea how I did that. But it worked out well. Its not too short.  The pattern is easy and fun. 🙂
