YOP 2017 -2018

This is going to be a different format for me this year and I hope it helps me to stay focused and finish more projects.  The idea behind my plan is to be able to cover my wide and diverse scope of creative interests but also to finish items, learn new techniques and design my own unique creations.  I will list each category and there will be something to finish and then something to start instead of start to finish.  The reason being is that I have WIP's (works in progress) in almost every creative endeavor I have ever attempted.  In order to permit myself to start something new I have to finish something in that category.  There may be some blank areas simply because I haven't 'unearthed' that category from my plastic bin museum yet but when I do those blanks will get filled in.  So, here goes!

Project List for 2017 - 2018 Year of Projects:  (once I get the hang of my new system there will be start and finish dates, links to patterns when possible, material lists and names plus any equipment  used such as needles and sizes, but for now this is all I have for you....I apologize)

                                knitting some socks!)
Christmas Eve Cast on socks -  WIP working on concurrently
Finished 2016 Christmas Eve cast on socks
***DONE*** Toe Up Socks by Very Pink (tutorial) made one sock and did not like the DK yarn OR the toe-up process at all - only one sock finished and they didn't fit  very well...maybe someday I'll do the other one just so I have another pair but no more 'toe-up' for me!

Finished:  WIP Patton Kroy Socks -
 13. Learning: (classes and techniques)
(beading, blocking, mattress stitch)
14. Design:I actually have an idea for a knitted item but not sure I would know how???
15. Utilizing books and magazines I already own....thank you to Ella for this great last minute idea!
      Yes, Ella, everyone here knows I am a shameless copycat of great ideas but I always give credit to
       the creator of the idea! LOL!

     I think that about wraps it up for now and although I have many more interests such as woodworking, decorating, painting and DIY.....I need to stop somewhere! LOL!  This will be my post for July 1, 2017 but it will also be a page on the right sidebar of my blog.  The post for today will remain the same but the page on my sidebar will get updated as the year progresses.
Happy Trails and Happy YOP 2017 - 2018!
