Year of Projects, Year 2: Detour

I haven’t made any progress on my Year of Projects goals this week because I’ve been sidetracked by other projects.

The first (and most time sensitive) project is a part of some work I’m doing for Kollabora.  (You can see the poorly lit – yet tantalizing – snapshot of some of the yarn involved here.)  I’m not allowed to share details until later, so I took an ultra super close up to give you a little teaser.

The second is my Ripple Mania CAL.  Yesterday, I was out taking some pictures of one of the projects with two models.

Initially, I was going to give this sample to one of my cousins as a holiday gift, but I fell in love with it.  I’m actually wearing it right now :).  I have a few more ripple samples to make for the final week, and, of course, I need to format the PDF that will go live on Wednesday for the second week of the CAL.

In other news, thanks to everyone who left suggestions about the pattern for my mom’s milestone birthday blanket on last week’s post.  I decided not to switch my pattern to the Tree of Life Afghan.  Many of you mentioned that I probably wouldn’t have enough time to make it, but it was really the comment from Minding My Own Stitches that made up my mind.  She thought the branches looked a little thorny, and I definitely don’t want to give my mother a bedspread and find out my mom thinks it looks thorny!

I hope to be finished with these other projects so I’ll have more time to focus on my YOP goals by the end of the week.s
