Year of Projects Update - week 37

No real FO's this week, unless you count a quick sheep hat for Daniel for Comic Relief!!  Which of course we do!
Other than that I have made progress on everything, but you may not be able to tell!
I have progressed on the Abate for Thomas and the Aiken for me.  I have divided for the sleeves on both and working down the body.

I have cast on Phyllis in Mellifera yarn cash sock, I am really enjoying these socks, I have done the ribbing and am now going down the leg.  It is somewhat slow going but the KAL runs until the end of April, so I should be ok.

I have done a couple more rows on the shawl.

So thats all for this week - I have finally updated the list, so here it is.

  1. Lots on the go at the same time! Like a project for every mood ;-) Looking good though! Have a great knitting week!

  2. such lovely projects and your colours of yarn are delicious x

  3. You have a lot going on at one time--and I do too! It must be a occupational hazard of knitting. Your sock yarn sure does pop! They are going to be fantastic. I love the pattern design on Aiken-so delicate looking.

  4. I love that mustard color. It's knitting up well as your jumper.
