I discovered the pleasure of crocheting doilies and mandalas:
And while working with thread, I discovered some bookmark patterns that are quick and satisfying:
Speaking of quick and satisfying, who doesn't love the quick gratification of small projects?
Looking back over the last 12 months, I'm reminded that this YOP year is when I learned to knit hats:
And continued to crochet some favorite hat patterns, too:
I also continued knitting and crocheting scarves. BTW, the scarves below and the hats above were mostly made for gifts and charity. I thought I'd mention that just in case anyone wonders if I wear all these. 😉
On a non-yarny note, I finished my first embroidered pillowcases with a crocheted edging. Now, these are for me!
And finally... a yearly look at projects made would not be complete without a round up of all the blankets crocheted.
There were baby blankets:
Some larger blankets:
And two special-to-me Spicier Life Blankets that represent many hours each of crocheting and sewing in ends.
Oh, the ENDS!
And that, dear reader, is the end
of this past Year of Projects!
Thank you for coming along with me
on this look back over the last twelve months.
