A Year of Projects Update - week 16

I seem to have made little progress this week compared to last, but that is because I have been completely obsessed with one project!

I do have one of these - the next hat.  I am doing these for the whole family and teachers, so I have 7 now to make as presents and this is the first.
I have made a little progress on both pairs of socks, but not a lot.
This is the project that has taken my time this week.  I cast on Miranda by Josee Paquin.  I am loving it, the pattern is lovely and the yarn is just delightful.  It is Madelinetosh pashmina worsted in baltic and is fantastic to knit with.
I have no more this week!

No knitting related acquisitions this week (well not directly).  I purchased some peanut hottie (a peanut butter hot chocolate drink) that I tried this morning and it is gorgeous.  I also took delivery of some Christmas teas from the English Tea Shop.  I have tried 3 of them and they are all splendid so far (I have tried the gingerbread, Christmas punch and apple spice).
To find out what the others have been up to or t join us please click the link on the side.


  1. Are you making the hats for Christmas gifts? That is a really pretty blue!!!!

  2. Pashmina in Baltic -- it just doesn't get better than that. You are going to have one kick-a-- sweater!

  3. Hats make the best gifts. And I for one, don't think you can ever have too many hats. I love the sweater color. I can almost feel the softness of the yarn. Your teas sound yummylishess! (I made that word up lol)

  4. ooo....that sweater is gonna be in my queue. I love the colour.

  5. I love the colors in the yarns you used in both of these projects!

  6. I need to check out your project page as hats are on my list for my grown up boys this year along with fingerless mitts. I love YOUR hat!
    The sweater is gorgeous!!!! Wow! I will have to remember that go girl!

  7. Both the hat and the sweater looks great--fabulous colors :-)
