WIP list

I have been keeping an ongoing list of my current WIPs in my knitting journal. With the vauge goal of 1) keeping them under one page's worth and 2) finishing 2018 with none of them (my word for 2018 is follow through, two words I know but its the point that counts).

Through Renne Anne (Confessions of a Yarn Addict) I found my way over to a Ravelry Group called A Year of Projects, and although it is not July 1, I figure I'd hop in now anyways, starting my year with the Calendar year.

So if you look up in the Header Bar/Tabs Bar, you'll see a new page for WIPs. All current ones. As in these are the one's I haven't forgotten about and are not hidden in a box in the basement (yep when we moved to Medicine Hat in June 2016, I packed up a box of languishing WIPs, so far only one thing has been rescued from it, although still not finished).

There are currently 19.... and I might be swatching for number 20 right now. Which is (with Yarn as my witness) where I'm going to cap that list.

Because even tho I swore I wouldn't cast on something new until I cast one more off. I caked up some yarn Friday night and cast one on.

Happy Knitting!


  1. So glad to have you join in the Year of Projects project. I look forward to seeing your creations and getting to know you through your blog and podcasts!

  2. Welcome! I love your blog name and I can see you are organized with your list and all. I look forward to following your progress.

  3. I always feel as though perhaps I'm a bit odd in that I don't have a languishing pile of WIPs. Don't get me wrong, Wink has been on the needles now for three years...but I don't considering it a languishing, hidden UFO/WIP. Some of the blogs I read and podcasts I listen to talk about finding UFO/WIPs hidden in weird places and I just don't have that. I know where all my WIPs are located (ish), I know where I am in the patterns (or can easily figure it out), I know where the yarn is hiding if I need more (like Wink) I weird?

  4. Nice list! I'm all about socks so I'm looking forward to seeing those. I also checked out your Projects in Ravelry and fell in love with the Flock yarn so I'd love to see more of that colourwork yoke sweater. I can only imagine how busy you are with twin toddlers and a thesis!

  5. Welcome, Sara. Your list is quite impressive. I also love how you have your blog laid out. It will be super easy to navigate.

    The twins are so stinking cute. It will be fun to watch them grow just as we have watched Renee's boys grow

  6. Great list, I'm a bit in love with Westknits at the moment (I see you have a couple!) Can't wait to see your progress
