Year of projects--my list

I´ve joined this wonderful ravelry group today Come Blog-a-long. A year of crafting and blogging together. You can set up a list of crochet/knitting things you want to make during the next 12 months and share your progress with your group members.
In my case my goal for next year is to finish up all my wips, which I have collected over the last years. I have to confess, that I´m very bad in finishing up stuff. I have a huge box now filled with losts of crochet and knitting items, that really need to be finished.

Inside my wip-box you will find the beginnings of:
- a crochet scarf
- a knitted scarf
- lots of knitted dish/washcloths
- two doilies
- a tablerunner
- a rug
- two potholders
- a  bag
- a crochet bunting
- christmas stars
- a granny something?
- a lot of different granny squares
- two crochet cushions

I hope, that my box will be empty next year!!! :)
I wish you all a very happy weekend!


  1. Welcome to YOP and I hope you enjoy it, we are all great at encouragement and this should help you to see your goal of an empty tub accomplished. I can't wait to see that tub turn into finished projects.

  2. Just think how many lovely things you'll have when they're all finished. xx

  3. I have a work basket like that! Can't wait to see your finished products

  4. Sounds like a great idea! I have a few WIPs and UFOs...need to get done as well.
    Lovely blog! Have a great weekend.

  5. This is a super idea! I have loads of half finished makes I wonder if I would need two baskets ha! ha! ....and don't you think its tremendously motivating to look in your basket throughout the year and see how its going down until you can see the bottom.

  6. Just found your blog via Jaclyn. I can't wait to see your projects once you've finished them all! It's so satisfying tying up lose ends! Love Katie x

  7. Oh, I love your projects and I'm so glad you've joined because I'm in there too! I wish I could see all your projects but I guess I will eventually. You sound like me...lots of mine are practical things that either I need or I know someone that does! LOL! I'm just starting to knit. I do crochet already and love that crocheted scarf of yours! I'm so excited about this group and already have met so many nice people. Sunday we post updates on our blogs I guess. I missed last week but I'll post this Sunday. TTYL and welcome!!!!

  8. I just joined the group too and it looks like a major theme this year is finish projects and use up stash yarn. Glad to see you there and I can't wait to see your finished work. XOXO

  9. What a great idea! I look forward to seeing your finishes!

  10. That's a great approach to Year of Projects. I am stash busting for mine, it will be so satisfying to make some space in the house for new projects won't it?

  11. Brilliant idea, I hope you manage to finish all your wips, it's a great way to get motivated, I'm very good at the moment I only have 5 projects on the go lol I try to do a bit of each every day then they will all get done eventually. Have a great weekend :)

  12. Welcome to YOP and that sounds like a great aim for the year, I also did that last year, and it worked really well!

  13. What a brilliant idea! I can't wait to see all your finished creations hon. You've got me motivated to go through my collection of half finished things now!

    Have a fab week hon,

  14. Hi Barbina, I do hope you'll finish all your WIPs! It took me six months to make my second armrest cover :D But I think you're more organised than I am. And the projects you have chosen are really very nice.
    Love, Aisha xxxx

  15. Good luck,look forward to seeing your completed
