16 in 2016 Project list

So I started the first project on my 16 in 2016 list. I thought I would get an early start on the posts so I am not doing everything at the last minute like last month. I also plan not to change any of the projects. Wish me luck on that. I will be making projects where I will be using a graph.
I tried to gather a list that wasn't all hats. But I can also count those towards the 52 hats list . ( another Ravelry group) . I always set out to make 52 ( other than orders ) but I never complete the 52.
ALso I will be posting these posts on Pinterest so if you are one of the many people on pinterest, please follow the board here. I may even open it up for others to add their 16 in 2016 projects.

here is my list in no particular order...

1. The Force Awakens toque
2. Skaters rule Skateboard graph
3. Crown Graph hat
4. Trees go Round Adult Christmas hat
5. Dr. Who Nesting bowls ( added)
6. Bikini dishcloth
7. Aries graph earwarmer
8. Skull beanie
9. Coffee time Potholder
10.Shamrock Scarf

Finished Friday!

I wish I could show you a bunch of finished projects but I can't .

I can show you this adorable BB-8 droid hat. ( also part of 52 hat challenge... I hope I can make 52 hats this year. -- besides orders that is) .

Check back next friday to see if I finished anything else :) 

Temperature Blanket wk 1

Have you heard about this?
 "The idea is to crochet a row a day for an entire year. The color you use is determined by the temperature each day."       -Repeat Crafter Me. ( said it best)  
I first heard about a Temperature Scarf a few years ago. I started one but never got past the first month. This year I plan to make a blanket. I like projects I can piece together. My blanket will be 2 round granny squares using a J size hook.

Here are my colors

91 and above - Cream 81 - 90            Perfect Pink 71 - 80            Rouge 61 -70             Lavender  51 - 60            Orchid 41 - 50            Bright Orchid 31 - 40            Turquoise  21 - 30            Delft Blue 11 - 20            Jade 10 and below- Peacock
I will be adding snow days as well. 
Here is my progress for week one. As you can see its been a colorful week :) a few turquoise , bright orchid , a sparkly square for a snow day and delft blue.  

I can't wait to see what week 2 brings! 

YOP5 week 27

Hello 2016! I hope you all are enjoying the new year!

After making the last of the 15 in 2015 projects with in only a few days I really didn't want to start anything new. So I grabbed this oldie and have been working on it for the past 3 days.

I'm glad my cat loves it, since its for her :) 

Final thoughts : 15 in 2015 projects

2015 has come to an end. Welcome 2016! Time for a new list . I am done with my 15 in 2015 list. YAY!

The projects you've see over the past few weeks were not the original projects. I revised the list a bunch of times. My taste was always changing. Same with my A Year of Projects list.
I didn't want to repeat the same pattern designer. I seemed to do that a few times. I really didn't have a theme besides all patterns were bought.

For 2016 I was thinking about making Ami's ( stuffed animal or doll) . But I am making those for my Year of Projects. The projects can't be too big since I have other things I have to make. So blankets are out. Hats and charity are already on another list.
I keep going back to all the patterns I've bought. still over 100 unmade projects. But if I know myself, I'll buy more and want to make those and not the ones on my list since my taste will change again.
I seem to be just rambling at this point.

But I want to challenge myself an…
