Year of Projects - Week 3

Some progress this week!!
The most exciting news is that I have finished my outfit-a-long - Yay!!  Here it is

 Apologies for the appalling photos - I simply cannot take a good selfie!!
The skirt is Delphine by Tilly Walnes.  I actually finished this last week and have worn it to work.  The cardi is Myrna by Andi Satterlund.  I made a mistake with the arm but I couldn't face frogging it and carried on regardless with a bit of tweaking.  I don't think you can really tell unless you look closely.
I finished the second hat for Thomas's teacher (who is having twins) and now just need to make cards for her and the childminder - both of which we will be saying goodbye to this week.

I also finished a pair of socks for the stall.

I love them!!  They are made from Mellifera yarn cash sock in gingerbread and honey - they are so soft.
So today I am ready to do my first test knit - I shall cast on later and am quite excited.

In other news we have been growing up fast in our house - Daniel has decided he doesn't want nappies any more and Thomas lost his first tooth yesterday.  We begin our summer holiday on Wednesday and I literally cannot wait!!  My mum and dad are arriving on Tuesday for a few days before me and the boys head off to the west country for a week.


  1. I love your outfit, the cardigan is gorgeous.

    My 5 year old is desperate to lose his first tooth. His older siblings have both been visited by the tooth fairy :)

  2. The outfit looks fantastic. You've done a great job and it looks to fit perfectly! Well done!

  3. I love your outfit... BIG well done there x
    The tooth fairy has been very busy in our house to, this last couple of weeks!!
    Enjoy your break!

  4. Very cute cardi! Love the colour :)

  5. Love the little socks :)

    Also, I have a little boy that is almost out of his diapers...almost...I don't quite trust him through the night or on long car rides but, generally speaking, he's done. Now, if I could just remind him to stop playing long enough to go potty, we'd be good :)

  6. Lovely outfit!
    My five year old is disparate to lose a tooth! He checks "for wiggly ones" daily

  7. The outfit is smashing! The selfie was just fine too. The little hats are so sweet and the socks for the stall are winners for sure. Love the missing tooth photo. They are so proud of that first one leaving. Enjoy your holiday.

  8. You are the fastest knitter I know! Your outfit turned out so nice....what mistake? Where? The sweater is lovely and those socks are SO cute! The hats are beautiful in that "winter white". Have a great vacation!

  9. That outfit looks great! I admire your talent. The little tuques are lovely and I'm sure will be appreciated. Great picture of the missing tooth, I remember those days well. Enjoy your holidays!!

  10. I love your outfit, it's so gorgeous, well done on it and those hats are just gorgeous. I like the socks and I think they'll be a great item on the stall. We have lost first tooths a couple of weeks back and it's always so exciting for the children.

  11. Terrific garments. I like how you went for color. Yes, the babes do grow up fast, yeah? It's a somewhat miraculous thing losing teeth.

  12. Gorgeous cardigan, it's a great pattern isn't it! I've still got to photograph myself in the full outfit, but it's just too hot. My big girl has a very wobbly tooth at the moment, she can't wait to lose another one!
