...Year of Projects: Week One...

I am very excited to be able to post an update on my Year of Projects a week after it started and am hoping to better at blogging about this (and other fun things, like my kid!) throughout the year.

There are a bunch of new people to the Year of Projects Group and I have enjoyed reading their lists. It has been fun to see some members from last year too. Many of us had the same idea: less specifics, more broad lists. Looking forward to seeing how we do!

If you read a week or so ago, I joined Project: Stash and others for the Miranda Hat KAL. I wanted my list to focus a little more on charity knitting this year and decided this was the best way to kick off my Year of Projects list!

The first Miranda Hat

I can see a few mistakes I made, but I really enjoyed this pattern and am looking forward to knitting up several more for the children's hospital.

I worked on my craft show knitting and I was able to finish one of my WIPs this week as well! My sister requested a hat to match her scarf and after almost a year, I finished the darn thing! I cannot post a picture because I am sure she will peek at this post! Here is the rav link tho! (I don't think she will be able to see it since she isn't on Rav?!)

Here is the list update:
