Year of Projects week 2


I decided to join the A Year of Projects Blog-A-Long this year over on Ravelry.com I think this is a great way for me to keep a running list of projects that I want to complete and be able to share something new each week here on the blog.

This is week 2 for me , so here is my update.


I have completed 5 of the 8 triangles and have started the 6th one. It has been too hot to work on it much over the last week so I try to add a row or two to it though. Here is a link to my project page. 




This project is The Hitchhiker scarf/shawl, I have been wanting to make one of these for years and I finally broke down and bought the pattern, and now I am hooked. I love how easy this pattern is. It looks hard but once you get going it is easy to memorize the rows and so this is a great project to take and knit when you might get distracted. I am now searching my stash for yarns that I can make more of them. I have completed 18 of the 42 repeats in just one day. I took the time while I was waiting at different appointments to work on it and while I was watching a documentary last night.  
You can find the details for this project over on my Raverly project page called the Key West Hitchhiker Shawl .


I started another project The School Spirit Scarf/shawl  but I made a couple of mistakes and tried to frog back to fix them and made an even worse mess out of it so I frogged it all the way back and now I think I might use the yarn for my second Hitchhiker scarf. 

There hasn't been any progress on the short row shell shawl. It is called Spring Shells.  

Here is my updated list of projects to complete.

Hitchhiker is on my list too. It seems everyone in my knitgroup has made one!
You are making good progress on your list. Well done.
sorry about the frogging, but maybe it was meant to be so you have more yarn for another hitchhiker. Glass half full and all that!

The hitchhiker looks lovely. I love the colour of the shawl.

The Hitchhiker shawl looks amazing and you chose such pretty colors. I put it to my favorites on Ravelry - certainly a project I want to make one day. At the moment I'm working on the Secret Garden shawl by Alana Dakos - quite a challenge, but the longer I work on it, the easier it gets.

I love that purple variegated yarn and it would make a beautiful shawl.
