It’s been ages since I posted a Year of Projects update, but I have been working towards several of my goals for this year. My latest series of quick projects has been to make mitered square washcloths for the April Crochetlist charity challenge, which will benefit Mothers and Infants Striving for Success. You may remember […]

Yesterday, I took an amazing class, Double-Ended, Circular Tunisian Tapestry with Lily Chin.  I’d never taken a class with Lily before, but I’ve heard a lot of good things.  Well, believe the hype, people, because she is an awesome teacher!  It’s rare to find a talented designer who is also an excellent teacher, but Lily has […]

Year of Projects, Year 2: Slow and steady

After a few busy weeks with minimal blogging (and minimal blog reading), I’m happy to return and report that I’ve made progress on my new YOP goals. I’ve started two projects for myself! First on the list in my 2013 Temperature Scarf, which is a great stashbuster.  I love that it is a slow project, […]

Year of Projects, Year 2: New Year, New List
24 Comments

Posted by Underground Crafter on January 6, 2013 | Short Link

After reviewing my progress in last week’s post, I decided to revise my list for the last half of the Year of Projects.  This may not seem as ambitious as my original list, but for right now it works for me. I’ve been purposely vague about the exact numbers of projects, etc. because I would […]

Year of Projects, Year 2: Return
15 Comments

Posted by Underground Crafter on December 30, 2012 | Short Link

It’s been a while since I shared a Year of Projects post, but as the year comes to an end, I’ve been reflecting on my crafty accomplishments in 2012 and planning for 2013.  I’ve definitely missed the camaraderie of participating in YOP so I thought I would ease myself back into posting on a semi-regular, if […]

2012 Year in Review: Frog Fest!
4 Comments

Posted by Underground Crafter on December 29, 2012 | Short Link

I’m not the type of crocheter (or knitter) who feels the need to complete every project I start.  Sometimes I start a project for stress relief, other times I make a bad yarn choice, and then there are times when the project just isn’t really something I want to work on anymore. Today, I’m celebrating […]

2012 Year in Review: Charity projects and crafting for a cause
6 Comments

Posted by Underground Crafter on December 27, 2012 | Short Link

This year, I donated more projects and patterns to charity (and causes) than I have for quite a long time. I started off 2012 by making 6″ granny squares.  I sent off 40 to Binky Patrol in May as part of the Crochetlist charity challenge. In June, I hosted the charity challenge for Crochetlist on behalf […]

Year of Projects, Year 2: My thoughts on continuing in YOP
18 Comments

Posted by Underground Crafter on November 18, 2012 | Short Link

You may have noticed I haven’t posted a Year of Projects update for the last two weeks.  I have been following along with my favorite YOP bloggers, but I think I’m taking a break from the Year of Projects for a while. I say “I think” because this has been something I’ve debated about for […]

Year of Projects, Year 2: A quickie
14 Comments

Posted by Underground Crafter on October 28, 2012 | Short Link

I’m sharing a quickie post today because I’m running out to meet my mom and join the lines of New York City shoppers preparing for Hurricane Sandy.  Public schools are closed tomorrow, but I haven’t heard about the colleges yet, so I may or may not be going in to work.  I hope everyone in […]

Year of Projects, Year 2: Detour
6 Comments

Posted by Underground Crafter on October 21, 2012 | Short Link

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 […]
