I spent a good portion of this week organizing my YOP lists for this year and past and what I noticed is....I had NO business even having a list this year! LOL! I have so many WIP's and even projects that haven't been started from last year and the year before! I need to be in some kind of a support group. Oh, I am..... whew! But what fun I had planning and organizing and not just online but I've got my yarns separated now and pretty organized. I also made 3 notebooks for each YOP year with a list of that year's projects in the front and the patterns from that year. I printed off patterns for this year until I ran out of printer paper and they're in plastic sleeves in the notebook for this year. I have what's beginning to look like a "stash" yet I still need yarn for my projects....hmmm?
Needless to say, between the organizing, the rodent adventure, no printer paper and a lack of appropriate yarn, I didn't exactly set my projects afire but I do have an FO! Just a small one and a look at the projects I'll be starting as soon as my
I started out making a set of 3 dishcloths for my son who just bought his first house, as a housewarming present for him. It was fine until I added the picot edging and that made it a little bit "fussy" so I decided my daughter would like them and she has a birthday coming up the 21st.
I like to give a set of 3 usually folded and tied with a ribbon
this pattern for my son which I think he will like and I found some really nice Berroco yarn I'll be ordering today. I'm also finishing up the little "orny" I'm making for my daughter and SIL for their anniversary......I saw this on Pinterest..........
brooch for my daughter for her other birthday gift.
My next cast on as soon as the yarns come in are for my little Millie.....for me............Millie is the one in the middle. Another Preemie hat, the sweater for a KAL I just joined and will get my yarn for that this week hopefully and if there's any money left (in my dreams...lol) I will be casting on this beauty.
I also actually worked on sewing up my old WIP chair pad too which really helped me rid myself of guilt for starting new projects. Ha! Ha! I can't wait to see everyone's projects/progress this past week.
