  1. I have a large list too...not that I think I'll get them done, but I have a place where they are all listed...

    1. me too. i created a google doc for all my projects. i have them added to my queue as well .

  2. Now THAT is a list :) I know there are a lot of items I'd like to get out of my library/queue and not by just deleting them. Why oh why can I not just be independently wealthy so I could spend the day playing with yarn? :)

    1. i wish that too :) . yarn = happiness

  3. I like your list more than my list ;)

    1. my list must shorter than

  4. You are organized! I feel better now as my list is big and I know it won't all get done but it's so fun to pick a project! And already have 2 things finished! Between Ravelry, FB and Pinterest....the patterns keep coming! Keep inspiring us!

    1. ravelry, fb and pinterest are evil! lol so many patters not nearly enough time to make everything. :)

  5. I'm sorry, I got stuck with the Mario granny square for Jon. I didn't even know such a thing existed and I must go look it up.

    That list is ambitious! I can't wait to see your projects.

    1. i can't wait to see them

      i first heard about the mario blanket on a pod cast that i folllow( commuter knitter podcast, shes on ravelry.) the one she was making was for her husband.

  6. Welcome to the year and there is no such thing as being late. Love the list, it's wonderfully long ambitious and so so so organised. Looking forward to seeing many of these projects.

  7. Looks like a great list! I'm looking forward to seeing your FOs!

Year of Projects (YOP4) weekly post

Lets see how long this will last lol.

Over the last few days Ive been working on my fiance Jon's Mario blanket. This may take me awhile. I need 54 brown, 45 red, 42 tan, and 109 light blue. I started with the red but since I had a partial skein I was only able to make 15. So I started on tan until I get the red (hot red) . I made 6 tan last night.

Doesn't look like much. I have to find the previous 5 squares, I think they are a different color. So I am not counting them right now. 
Weekly count Red: 15 of 45 done Tan: 6 of 42 done Brown: 0 of 54 done Light blue: 0 of 109 done Yellow: 2 of 2 done.

hereis my full list of projects

My most popular post

Though the post was just a work in progress (WIP), it has been one of my most popular posts. Being #1 one for a while, The minion hat WIP needed to be updated. I used my own pattern as I stated in the post. All Minion hats kinda look the same.
Last September I made a bunch for customers. It seems alot of people wanted to be a Minion for Halloween. I was even asked to make a yellow and purple minion for a woman going through chemo.  I was beyond honored to make those hats.
Selling about 20 since last September has been a joy. I have made a few versions.
Here is what i started with....
before I changed my business name

my cutest customers! <3 <3 

MAJOR improvement from the first few caps.  I like using the darker yellow yarn with the blue. Ear flaps are my favorite. 
Here is one of the purple Minions Ive made...

I hope you enjoyed the Minion update. :)
