YOP Update – April 22nd

 
I’m starting to feel a little like a broken record in these updates………..lots of progress, no finishes.  This week is no different.  But it has been fun.  First, two swaps for sock yarn were arranged and it looks like there may be a couple more in the works.  My yarn ends have been sent off and there are yarn ends coming to me.  I  was able to send off a ball from my stash to a knitter in the UK who contacted me because she was going to be short a ball of yarn for the Jersey she was knitting and strangely I had the same dye lot that she needed.  Not sure how that happened.  She’s  sending me some stitch markers in return and maybe I should see if she has some sock yarn ends too.
 
The Knit and Crochet Blog week starts tomorrow and I’ve been working hard to make sure that is all set to go since I know that I do not have the time to write a blog entry every day.  I’m almost finished and I hope that you enjoy what’s coming up this week.  For more info about the blog week you can go here.
 
I’m starting to think that it may be about the right time to start organizing Year Two of “A Year of Projects”  so if you missed out and want to join for this coming year or you want to start thinking about doing this again next year, check into our Ravelry  group here.  I’ll post the new info within the next seven days.  The new year starts for us on July 1st, so not to worry, we have lots of time to think about it.
 
Also, my pesky minions have been up to no good again and something may have to be done about this.  Maybe after the blog week is over………

    I know what you mean about the progress and no finishes, thats me to at the moment.
    Looking forward to seeing what you have coming up for the knitting and blogging week, I’m off to check that out as I didn’t hear about it till now.
    I’ve started to make a short list of want to knit patterns for next year lol.

  • Minding My Own Stitches

    You may not have a lot of finishes yet, but you’re rocking the balls in/balls out ratio! And that’s definitely progress!

  • Emma

    I’ve had the lots of progress and no finishes problem for a while now. All the finishes come at once! And I can’t wait for year 2!

  • babygreens

    There’s not much getting finished here either, though not huge amounts of progress either. I’m so looking forward to doing this all again, I will do it better too as this year has been more of a year of learning for me. It’s been great, thank you.
