A Year of Projects - Take 4

I have decided to join the Fourth Year of Projects blogging adventure.  I joined up in the First Year and managed to get a few projects done.  I again joined the Third Year and suspect I accomplished even less.  I am convinced that I overestimated my ability to finish up all the projects I chose!  This year I plan to finish up a few challenges that I started recently - I joined up Sock Madness 8 and Tour de Sock.  I finished five rounds of Sock Madness and three round of the Tour so far.  The fourth round of the Tour is ongoing right now as I post this. I plan to now finish up all that I did not complete and that which is yet to come on the Tour.  I also have a couple other WIPs that I will work towards completion!

So, without further ado, here is my list:

Sock Madness 8:
1. Chill Thrill (round 6 socks)
2. Alexandrina (round 7 socks)

Tour de Sock
1. Dazzle Them From Behind (Stage 4)
2. Yet to be released (Stage 5)
3. Yet to be released (Stage 6)

Other WIPs to finish:
1. Advent Calendar scarf (7 out of 24 lace repeats complete) I have made zero progress on this in the past year and need to decide if I will finish it or frog it...
2. Crochet scrap afghan (14 little squares complete)  This also had no progress since last year...  Or maybe I made a few more squares - I'll have to dig it out and see!
3. I want to start a scrap afghan with all my left-over sock yarn - This is the one I want to make!

And one final thing is that I want to continue working on designs.  I have designed several patterns over the past year or so and have many more ideas that need to be put on paper!!


  1. good luck. i cant wait to see your progress :)

  2. Lovely that your back and I can't wait to see what new designs you come up with for this year, you've set up some good challenges and I look forward to seeing you completing them.

  3. Looking forward to seeing your designs. Lovely list - can't wait to see your progress.

  4. Looking forward to seeing how you get on with the list. I've joined for the first time this year so I'm completely unsure how much is realistic, in particular as I totally fell off the knitting bandwagon for a few years and have only just started again!
