I am starting the year with 18 WIP's (there are a few more, but I may frog those, as I've lost interest in them)

I have also already completed one project for Natalie's birthday.

I know what my dissertation will be for Nerd Wars, but can't start it until Feb. 1.

I have a couple of empty categories at the moment, because Nerd Wars, it'll depend on the challenge, hats I make as stashbusters, and gifts will be as they come up. 

And I have a ton! of WIM's.....these are most (there are a few stragglers) of the projects that I have both the pattern and the yarn already...just need to buckle down and get them done...

I'm only going to link these to Ravelry once they are complete.....but all are either in my projects page or my queue on Ravelry.

Welcome to YOP, we always love new members. I like the look of your list and that you have blank sections, I found this to be a good idea after completing my first year. Looking forward to seeing your progress over the year.

Welcome aboard. Your list looks massive, but anything you get done is a bonus, right?

I'm all for frogging anything you've lost interest in. In case you needed moral support :)

Renee Anne said...

You are far more ambitious than I. But, I have a toddler running around, getting into my yarn and needles and time...then again, you have a full-time job.

Meh, you're just more ambitious than I am :)

Welcome to the group, always fun having more people to visit and get to know. You sound as nuts as the rest of us...18 wip...holly cow, I think you'll fit right in.

Kim said...

Welcome! How fun to have new friends join us. Your list is ambitious but full of fun things, so it should be a fun year for you. :) Looking forward to seeing more from you soon!

I have that learn to knit leaflet, & always said I would knit it someday. Someday's not this year, I don't think!

Visited you from Ravelry!
