YOP 2019 #1

Hello my dears, how are you all doing? So this is the new year … funny how we make such a fuss about a mere change of numbers, isn’t it? Anyway, I’ve decided to start a new Year of Projects in January so that hopefully I won’t forget what week I’m actually in.

This week has seen the completion of a pair of vanillas – mind you, I actually finished two pairs in a mere week! I’m only counting the one pair for 2019, though, because I had knit about 90% of the other pair last year. I have yet to take a photo of my new pair of socks, the light was abyssmal due to heavy rain, overall greyness and snow.

I started my new lace shawl on the 1st, I blogged about it here, and have since started working on section B, the wave pattern. I’m not too far in, though.

Other than that, I was out taking photos:

And I managed to read two books:

Not exactly a productive week but I’m getting there.

If you’re curious about what my fellow YOPpers are up to, or would like to join in the fun, find our group on Ravelry.

    Hoping the new year start will work for you and help remember the weeks. I think your week was relaxingly productive and had a good mix of projects going on from knitting to reading to taking photos.

      Thank you, Ruth. I hope I can keep it up, just make things, be creative, and enjoy the process. I really need a bit of peace and fun in my life right now.

  • I YOP from January to December, as does Renee Anne. Many times I’m still not sure which week I’m oon, so I double check her blog 🙂

      Thank you, Tammy. I’ve got the calendar weeks noted down in my work agenda so it should be easy to double check. I jsut want to get back into a steady rhythm, not just with crafty stuff but with everything in my life.

    That would make a nice Christmas card picture for next year. 🙂

      Thank you, Liz. Maybe I’ll use it for a future calendar picture. I intend to make a full twelve of them, and always have the current month’s picture up on the front page. Wish me luck. 😉

  • It sounds like a perfect week. 🙂 Lovely photo. Perfect and crisp!

  • Mary-Anne

    That picture is beautiful and somehow both poignant and hopeful.

  • Beautiful photo and I understand about getting started in the New Year….I’m still trying to organize myself, my goals and my projects for the coming year. It sounds like you are accomplishing things though so good for you! Here’s to a productive, satisfying and healthy 2019 to you and your family!

      Thank you, Sandra, and the same to you. I feel like I’m taking baby steps at present but now matter how tiny the steps, one is bound to get somewhere in the end, and slow progress means you get to admire the scenery more.
