Year of Projects update (and some reminders)

After a very busy and fun-filled weekend, I have loads to share from the Knitting & Stitching Show  but that will have to wait until tomorrow. For now I'm just popping in with a very overdue Year of Projects update and a few reminders :) 

It's been about a month since my last YoP post, mainly because I've been incredibly sidetracked with other things and haven't actually made much progress with the list. I did complete one more item - a Chubby Chirp - a few weeks ago and I started a little bird decoration too (that's still an unfinished object awaiting the addition of wings and eyes), but that's about it for now. Of course I blame the hexipuffs!

This week I'm going to be busy sewing (see below) and also have some school mums coming over to learn how to make granny squares, so it's unlikely I'll get to start anything else at the moment. However I felt I should post if for no other reason than to say I am still "in" - there is plenty of time left yet and it's not too late to get started either. Really looking forward to catching up on everyone else's progress over the next couple of days - the links can be found on Ravelry (here). 

 Before I shoot off (to bed!) here's a reminder that Kids Clothes Week Challenge starts tomorrow. 

If you fancy joining in, you can find all the details here at the Elsie Marley Blog 
and if you're not sure what to make, there is a ton of inspiration here

International Babywearing Week also starts tomorrow. 
I'll be hosting daily posts on the Natural Mamas blog to mark the occasion.

Night night


  1. How wonderful you're teaching other mums to crochet up Granny Squares! I think teaching others is so selfless and spreadin' the love around! Let us know how it goes.

  2. I'm glad that someone else is also behind on YOP posts ... I've missed a few including this week but still love seeing what others post!

  3. I'm really enjoying YoP and getting to know other bloggers. Most of my FOs aren't even on my list - perhaps I should review that situation as I think there were a few Christmas things on it. Good luck with your crochet students.

  4. I wish you a lot of fun with the mums, and with all your projects this week.

    I'm thinking about teaching knitting socks in the store each Thursday afternoon and crocheting Grannies afterwards. :-)

    Today I'm preparing for a Patchwork Quilting cours at the Universitiy of teachers education in St.Gallen. This should be fun too and of course there is also a bit money (only a bit) involved. :-)

    Being creative in a team, that is soooooo good.
