Now I've written that out, it doesn't seem like much, but I am sure I will have additions as I go along!
For this week, I have made lots of progress on Myrna, and here she is:

 I made one hat for Thomas's teacher, just one more to go.

And finally, I will leave you with a sneak preview of a product I would like to go on the stall.

That's all for now - looking forward to seeing everyone else's new lists at the Year of Projects on Ravelry


  1. That jumper will look cute on your daughter. Nothing beats girly and warm. The stitches on the teacher beanie look so nice and neat. A hat is always in need. Good luck on this craft stall project.

    1. Ah no daughter, just 2 boys. So the jumper is for me!! Thomas's teacher is having twins, so little hats are perfectly in order!

  2. I like the list and have already added Aquae top to my favourites lol. Looks good and interesting though with lots of varied projects. Myrna is coming along nicely and how cute is that hat! love it. Can't wait to see what the pink item is going to be.

    1. Having knitted the tank top last year, I fancied another! Myrna is coming along quite quickly (for me).

  3. Loving your list too! Hats for babies are always so perfect!

  4. Great list! Of course, any list that starts with "Projects for me" is a good one in my opinion :)

  5. I did not add my sewing, cross stitch or quilting as I was afraid I would put people "over the top" post was long enough as you'll see. LOL! I love your projects and those are big items like jumpers. Love the teacher hat...beautiful knitting. I want to learn double knitting this year too and I have a heart scarf on my project list that is a tutorial if you want to take a look. Now I just need tutorials for the other skills I want to learn. So glad you have been here this year and really looking forward to another year of your projects.

    1. Thank you, I have loved this year and learned so much from everyone. I shall be looking at that heart scarf.

  6. Looking forward to learning double knitting myself! Looking forward to future updates.

  7. Love the colour of whatever the sneak preview is of! :)

    1. It is rather gorgeous isn't it - it is a cotton blend.

  8. looking forward to seeing your sewing projects

  9. How on earth do you manage to stick to something like this? I have my crafting schedule sorted out up until Christmas this year, but a week later am already thinking up new things (and seeing new things on knitting blogs, thanks for that) that I'd rather make instead!

  10. Oh! So much loveliness in this post! You list looks great and strangely , Spiced Cocoa Mitts jumped into my favorites list! Myrna is looking beautiful and look at you go on it. Looking forward to what Year 4 holds in store for you and the rest of us.
