The 'Year of Projects' is a blog-along Ravelry group established to run from 1st July to 30th June. Each participant publishes a list of planned projects at the start of the 'year' and then posts regular progress updates (usually on a Sunday, with a link back to individual posts on the group page). Some people choose random projects whilst others work their way through a book or stick to a single theme for the whole year - if you'd like to join in, please visit the group where you'll find more information and ideas.

The 3rd Year of Projects 2013/14: View the 'kick-off' post here.

There are four parts to the 2013/14 goal list, which you will find below. As a project is completed, a photo and link to the blog post will appear under the relevant heading. If there are no pictures, there are no completed projects in that category.
