Jetzt geht es also los, das neue Jahr der Projekte vom 1. Juli 2017 bis zum 30. Juni 2018. Die Idee dahinter ist, sich eine Liste mit Projekten zu erstellen, die man in dem Zeitraum abarbeiten möchte, und wöchentlich jeweils am Sonntag die Fortschritte zu bloggen.

So it has begun, this new Year of Projects, running from 1st July 2017 to 30th June 2018. The idea is to make a list of projects to complete during that time, and to blog weekly progress updates on Sundays. 

In den letzten Jahren hatte ich irgendwie gar nicht mehr so richtig Zeit zum Handarbeiten, geschweige denn zum Bloggen, und es hat mir sehr gefehlt. Darum freue ich mich besonders auf die kommenden 52 Wochen und den Anstoß, endlich mal die ganzen Projekte in Angriff zu nehmen, die ich schon ewig im Hinterkopf habe, und wieder regelmäßig zu bloggen. Zumal ich ja nicht allein bin – bei Ravelry gibt es eine Gruppe zum Year of Projects und jede Menge Mitstreiter (und wie ich befürchte, auch jede Menge zusätzliche Projekte und Ideen, die ich ja auch mal machen könnte – nur gut, daß es dieses Projekt nächstes Jahr auch wieder gibt). Meine Liste ist im Moment eher kurz und allgemein gehalten, lieber füge ich im Laufe des Jahres noch neue Projekte hinzu. Und aus Gründen größerer Übersichtlichkeit (weil ich halt so ticke) habe ich meine Liste auf einer Seite festgehalten, nicht in einem Blogpost, weil mir das (hoffentlich) das Überarbeiten, Updaten und Hinzufügen erleichtern wird.

During the past few years, I neglected crafting and blogging, mostly because life got in the way, but I missed it awfully. So I’m really looking forward to the next 52 weeks and am happy to finally have a good cause to work on all those projects that had been lurking in the back of my mind for ages, and to finally get back to blogging regularly. The best part is I’m not alone in this – there’s a Year of Projects group on Ravelry, with lots of wonderful participants (and lots of lovely projects and ideas I’ll be tempted to add to my list – good thing there’ll always be another year of projects). I’ve kept my list rather short and general so there’ll be room to add projects over the year. Since I prefer a certain order (yes, I’m weird that way), I’m keeping my list on a page, not as a blog post, I guess that should make adding, rearranging and updating the list easier. 

Zur Feier des Tages, und damit ich wenigstens ein extra zum YOP1718 angefangenes Projekt habe, werde ich nachher gleich mal das erste Paar Socken anfangen. Mit ein bißchen Glück wird das dann nächsten Sonntag auch gleich mein erstes fertiges Projekt sein.

To start off on the right foot (pun intended) with a true YOP1718 project, I’m going to start the first pair of socks today. With a little luck, that’s going to be my first finished project to show next sunday.

  1. What a great list and I really like the selection of knit, crochet, sewing and other items on it. It will make it interesting and varied and should be fun to work on throughout the year. Looking forward to seeing your socks next week.

  2. Welcome!!!! So happy to see new faces and old for YOP 2017-18. I love your list! The blankets are beautiful and I love blankets as I am a practical crafter so there are always blankets and socks on my lists. The crochet shawl is a beauty too. I am very curious about ‚ice dyeing‘ plus that is a great idea about picking a certain number of projects out of the magazines we all buy! That idea is going on my list…I hope you don’t mind? The unicorn sounds cute and can’t wait to see it. Of course, I adore sock knitting so there is always socks on my needles. Enjoy your day and I am inspired by you and all your projects!

      Thank you, Sandra. I’m so happy you’ve found some inspiration on my blog. As for the blankets, I love them and I usually start them with lots of enthusiasm and determination. Unfortunately, that kind of fades after a while. Hopefully, being part of YOP will help me pull through. As for ice dyeing, I’ve seen beautiful fabric dyed that way, wonder if I’ll manage? This will be the first winter I’m looking forward to (and I never thought I’d ever say that).

  3. What a great list and the idea of putting it on a different page was genius. I am so glad you have joined us this year. You will certainly make friends here and I, for one, am looking forward to seeing your projects as you finish them.

  4. Welcome. Your blog background is bright and cheerful. You have a good list and smart to keep it as a page. I may do that also to keep me focused and on track. I’m interested in seeing your crochet shawl take flight as I have that pattern faved on Ravelry also. I’m also interested in seeing your sewing as I’m a beginner and am itching to get back to it.

      Thank you, Stefanie. Can you tell I love butterflies? 😉 Here’s hoping I learn to work with that sewing software. If it works, I’ll get to sew garments made to my own meassurements. The key is in the meassuring, just a few cms off might make the difference between fit and fail. Guess it’s going to be quite a learning curve.

  5. Super impressed that you can star a pair of socks this week and finish them next week! I’m looking forward to seeing which patterns you use. And frankly I’mm quite curious about the „too expensive yarn“. 🙂

      Thank you, Lynn. Socks are super quick for me, I’m almost done with the first one already. I’m quite curious about what yarn it’s going to be as well. I would love to knit a Fair Isle sweater in Jamieson’s, so maybe that’s going to be my choice.

  6. I enjoyed seeing your list and I think I’m most curious about Snow Dying (or ice dying). I look forward to getting to know you this YOP year through your blog, and to see your creations. Welcome to the Year of Projects!
