Year of Projects Week 1
I didn't think I was going to be able to post any progress at all with my YOP this week. For some reason my girls have become obsessed with possessing one of these each and are giving me NO PEACE at all. Whenever they see me walk within 10 metres of my yarn basket they demand progress updates and projected finishing dates. It's like having two very small but very determined office managers who are currently seeking promotion (not that I've ever worked in an office, but that's how I imagine it might be).
Anyway, progress has been made on those and I am anticipating having them ready for FO Friday next week as I haven't had anything to share for a few weeks now. Leaving the Sleepy Sarahs aside (oh, how I wish I could), I have actually begun work on a (whispers) Christmas project. My YOP list (I made a page link at the side which I am inordinately proud of) has on it a Christmas Nativity Scene. I had meant to design the figures myself but then I found this lovely pattern and a place to download it so I splashed out and bought it.
this lovely example on Ravelry using only three colours and the tiniest bit of blue for Mary. I'm not going to limit myself that much but I'm going to stay away from the brights for this one.
So there we go: after all, all crochet starts with just one stitch and the same is true of the Year of Projects, it might as well start with half an amigurumi Mary as with nothing at all. There has also been progress on my Fruity Sunny Spread (several people have said that it looks like slices of citrus fruit which I hadn't thought of but is certainly true), but I only blogged about that on Tuesday so I'll leave it for now.
If you would like to see some more YOP posts they are listed here. Thank you to Sarah for the lovely graphic at the top of the page.
