I consider myself a fastidious Ravelry user. I have taken pictures and recorded new yarn in my motel room within hours of visiting a yarn store and project pages are a must. Maybe there is a secret cataloger lurking in me that desires to keep an orderly record or it could be that with 154 projects (to date) my memory can get a bit fuzzy about what I have knit when and with what yarn.
Not surprising with over 13,000 Ravelry groups some so small they only include 2-4 people and others with memberships well into five figures there is a discussion forum for bloggers. A Year of Projects blog-a-long offers a framework to keep track of what can be a chaotic mix of actual works-in-progress (WIP) and those that are only dreams; while encouraging writers to write all with the added bonus of a built in audience among the participating bloggers.
Having just re-joined the blogging sphere in May, I have yet to suffer from prolonged writer’s block and who knows if Knit+ Librarian will continue beyond this pandemic sequester but A Year of Projects could be useful as an online writers’ group. As I am joining the group mid-year, my list of projects yet to be tackled (with or without an accompanying blog post) includes:
- Hortensia Mitts and Hortensia Hat from Solène Le Roux – WIP
- Project Peace 2020 KAL with Christina Campbell – awaiting yarn
- River of Dreams Bedrunner – WIP
- Selwyn a Knit Camp KAL with Marie Greene – WIP
- New Knit Camp patterns as they are released monthly by Marie Greene (specific details to follow)

You my friend are amazing! Melissa
I joined YOP but then fell off the posting schedule. I am hoping to reboot my knitting notebook for 2021. I love keeping track of my projects too.
Welcome to our Group, I’m in my 3rd year but some ladies have been in it since it started and this is the 10th year. I enjoy the eclectic crafts, the wide spread locations and the community of our group.
Hope you enjoy the Ravelry Blog group. I look forward everyone’s updates each week.
