You Down with Y.O.P.?

Yeah you know me!!!

Damn straight I’m down! You know I love me some list making and a yarnie challenge!

Let me explain…So last year I came across the Come Blog-a-Long Group on Ravelry that presented the challenge of picking a year’s worth of yarnie projects to work thru (either a whole book of patterns, your WIPs, the top 10 patterns on Ravelry, etc…) and blog about it regularly. It’s a very public goal setting challenge and me likes. THUS – Come Blog-A-Long’s Year of Projects! Goals, knitting, crochet and blogging! Woohoo!

I attempted to do this last year but life happened…so here’s my new list for round two:



  • Kaya Cropped Raglan Shrug
  • Monday Morning Cardigan
  • Spoked Cardigan


  • Spring Forward
  • The Perfect Fit
  • Hug Me
  • June Socks
  • Koi Socks


  • Hitchhiker
  • Leaves of Grass
  • The Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief
  • Holden Shawlette
  • Noro Stripe Scarf
  • My Hope


  • Knitted & Scrunched Beanie
  • Spiral Hat 5951


  • 29-210-44 Striped Bag


  • 8 ounces of fiber

Am I crazy…MAYBE! Don’t look at me like that! I’m super excited about this! Well that and I’ve decided to stop sleeping. It’s proving to be overrated and a huge time suck.

    Hahaha, I’ll stop looking at you ;). I agree with what the others have said, YOP is a great motivator.

    Great list. I’ll be interested to hear how you go with the socks. I’ve just mastered the magic loop knitting but haven’t attempted socks yet – just a premmie baby’s hat right down to the i-cord knot on top.
