Wow, I've cast on a lot this week!! One finished object, two with progress and three started.
Last week I went to the Goodwood Revival with my family. For those that don't know this is a huge race meeting for period racing cars (1920 - 1950 ish) where most people dress up and everything is in keeping with the era.
I went on Saturday and had a lovely time and the boys returned on Sunday while I did the last craft fair till Xmas.
Anyway, to the projects!!
I finally made some progress on the Xmas jumper (still on the bottom ribbing though), but reality has hit and I realise, unless I work on it monogamously I will not get it done by this Xmas. So, I have rethought my timetable and aim to finish for next year!!
I made a little progress on my socks, I am at the toe now. I think since I know they won't fit properly I have lost enthusiasm for them - but if I want the next pair to fit I need to see it through.
I made a little hat for the stall and started another - the finished one just needs the ends sewing in and bobbles adding.
I cast on some mitts for the stall. These are coming on nice and quickly and the yarn is so lovely and soft, (it is Malabrigo worsted) I might just keep them for myself!!
I also cast on for a little bag in a superchunky yarn. This is coming together incredibly quickly and easily - this too is destined for the stall.
Most of these are lovely quick knits so although I have lots on the go I'm hoping to get several finished this coming week.
In other crafty news, Darren brought home a huge bag of cooking apples from a friend's garden. So having made crumble yesterday, I am making apple cake today and stewing the rest. The boys want star shaped cookies for some reason - so will be doing that later too!
Also, I have been neglecting the sewing machine, so am hoping to cut the fabric for a top and another Delphine today.
Phew, that sounds a lot so better get to it!! Hope you all have a good week x
