This is my official, yes OFFICIAL, "year of projects" post. If this is a project you wish to participate in, do head on over to the Ravelry Group called "Come Blog-A-Long" and read up/join. I believe you have to be a member of Ravelry to view and join groups, so be sure you do that too (if you aren't a member already).
So the premise of the group is to post your list of projects you plan on completing in the next year (July 1, 2011 through June 30, 2012). You can do as few or as many as you like, but you should challenge yourself. For me, I want to make sure I have all my Christmas projects included along with some other items I want to complete.
Unfortunately - this list may be one part specific to one part generic simply because I haven't found the perfect pattern for whatever it is I want to do. I don't want to miss out on getting it on my list; however, I know the list is supposed to be specific - for me, I'm going to be as specific as I can at that point in time. I want to account for the project even if I don't have the pattern. I just didn't want to rush myself into a particular pattern for certain items just in case I find a better pattern later on, somewhere else.
So... without further delay - this is the list of projects (with pattern where available) that I want to complete in the next year. I have broken them into 2 categories: Big and Fast.
Easy Cabled Scarf
Filet Market Bag

Throw for living room sofa (no pattern selected yet)
Men's Vest (Christmas present)
Round Afghan/Throw (potential Christmas present)
Angel Tree Topper
Joseph Wrap from Crochet! Magazine (as Christmas present)
3 pair of Paperclip Ice Skates Ornaments (personal use)
15 pair of Paperclip Ice Skates Ornaments (as office Christmas presents)
2 sets of Golf Club Covers (no numbers) - (as Christmas presents)
I did go a little easier than I think I could have because I do have one semester of graduate school left. I will be doing 2 classes and an internship this fall so I didn't want to lock myself into 24 good size projects and end up falling face first. I also work full time so I have to keep all of this in consideration when picking the number of items I want to finish in the next 12 months.
Now that I have a list - the point is to update you guys, the readers, every Sunday. So look for that as I work my way through the project list. I wish everyone in the blog-a-long group the best of luck as they work through their projects - hopefully we are ALL successful!
