Another Sunday rolls around and finds me once again reviewing my list for Year of Projects.

Things now DONE:
1. Wedding Ghan pictured HERE
2. Oddball blanket (which turned into 2 where I was the border patrol person, Cinco de Mayo and Mardi Gras). Done and Mailed Pictured HERE
3. Red Scarf No More DONE (still deciding where this should go) Pictured HERE

WIP:
1. Pink Poodle Ghan (60% done) Managed to do about 10 rows yesterday, so almost another section done
2. Cotton Cloth Calendar Challenge (6 of 12 cloths done, and most of cloth 7 done, so 65% done)
3. Awesome Blue Scarf gave up trying to determine what pattern I had been using, and FROGGED! Will once again find a pattern I want to use, leave it with the awesome blue and start again, which will be about the 4th time........ARGH
4. Buckeye Diagonal Scarf, have found the directions to help me determine where I left off, fingers cross this works. Have been in a holding pattern as I couldn't determine where I left off. Thanks to a blogger's good directions of how to determine, am hopeful! ??45% done
5. Candy Corn Ghan (my longest running work in progress ever 60% done)
6. Afghans to be assembled for Bridge and Beyond from donated squares (have several designed and ready to edge, shifting gears to make this a focus as soon as Pink Poodle is done)

Goals:
Learning to knit cables (watched a video awhile back which is helping me feel more confidant and willing to give it a try)
Learning to knit socks

Extra's:
(Things that weren't on the list)
Pink Petuna (the start of another Oddball Baby Blanket, my section DONE. Pink Petuna will be traveling to the next knitter as soon as sign up's are done
Christmas Ghan (I always make at least 1 for Christmas for our family throw in present), hadn't even rememeber about that til a few days ago.
Janet Ghan (wanting to make a ghan for my niece in NY. She's from warm Texas and is not used to cold winters...but I need time

  3. Nah not pathetic, we all have those. I think I have a purse in hibernation for three years. It didn't even make my YOP list. Hmmmm... Should decide what to do about it. Love the candy corn, and the other ones. The Wedding ghan is still gorgeous this week.

  4. Hi Sandy – I’m not being rude – it just means that your email address doesn’t show up in the email that is instigated when you make a comment – so I can’t hit ‘reply’. It’s to do with your profile in blogger - you just need to agree to show your email address.

    I’ve sent a reply to the email I received from you but your email address shows up as “noreply-comment@blogger.com” – let me know if you get it!

    Cheers

  9. Tonya, thanks you make me feel better about how long this one has been in the works.

    Thanks Shocking for explaining, I wasn't understanding what you meant. I don't like people to email me instead of leaving comments, so have purposely set my settings that way.

    Thanks Rizzi, I'll hop over and hope to see the ones you're working on.

    Thanks for the nice comments Kerpanie, Faith, and goodpurlgonebad, much appreciate it. The encouragement helps.

  14. Hi Sandy .. Your afghan is looking very interesting. I'm looking forward to following its progress. You're doing well with your list of projects too. I'm afraid I tend to go a bit off track but I thought I read somewhere earlier that encouraging people to blog was also part of this project. Hope I'm not breaking any rules by not following my list. Have a great week.

  15. Thanks Hazel, Marsha, Mindin My own Stitches, hakucho and Dorothy for the visits, the sweet comments and the encouragement.........all is very much appreciated.

    Minding...right you are, I really must get Candy Corn, it will feel like a weight's been lifting off my back. Truth is I'd forgotten how weird it is, and I like weird; so am anxious to get moving on it again.

    Dorothy I believe you're right, it's fun to encourage people with their projects, to encourage them to blog, and to meet new folks.

  17. I am finding the pink poodle ghan fasinating. Love those colors together. But then I am from the poodle skirt era.

  18. I just love the colours in your candy corn ! It is so autumnal and autumn is my favourite season.

  19. Wow .. another busy week. Your candy corn ghan looks lovely and I'm so glad to hear that somebody else has a project that's been going on, and on, and on !! I started an Australian Tartan blanket about 12 years ago and its still only about half done.
