A Year of Projects Update - week 40

The clocks have gone forward today, and it's mothers day.  I think that's a bit rude!  One hour less to get everything done!!
Anyway, I have a cup of Grannies Trifle tea and I have a moment to catch up with an update.
I have no finished objects this week, but I have made a fair bit of progress with my projects.
I have finished the body of the Grass River tunic.  I only want to do short sleeves and I have the crossover neckband to do, but I don't envisage that taking very long.
I have also finished the first half of Nasreen. And I have now started the second half. Again this didn't take too long so I should be able to get through this quite quickly, then I only have the finishing to do. 
I had started Daniels bee socks last week and I am now more than half way along the first sock as I have completed the heel.  I almost never knit socks one at a time now, but the cake was so nice I didn't want to ruin it.  I just hope I have the motivation to knit the second one!
I also got some more yarn from De Rerum Natura in France this week to make two sweaters from Interpretations 6. I want to make the community tunic and understated - both by Joji Locatelli
I hope everyone has a great week.
Next week is due to be a bit busy what with one thing or another.  I don't think I will be able to post on Sunday, but I will see what I can do!


  1. You did quite a bit done on your projects....can't wait to see them all done...

  2. Happy mother's day to you!
    I love the bright colors and I cant wait to see the FO's :)

  3. I checked out those patterns and thought the 2nd looked like a v-necked boxy and then noticed in her pattern comments that’s exactly what it is. I’ll be interested to see how that looks. Cute bumble bee socks.

  4. Those socks are adorable. Perfect for a youngster. You sweaters are coming along quickly. I love both patterns you have picked for your next 2 sweaters.

  5. Your progress is impressive, Lucy. I, too, love both the sweaters you have coming up to do. How fun to make so many lovely things you can enjoy wearing.

  6. Happy Mother's Day, Lucy! The projects you have on-the-go are lovely and the community tunic, in particular, looks stunning for the future. Looking forward to seeing the current ones finished and these new ones started.

  7. Happy Mother's Day! Ours is in May. And our clocks went forward a few weeks ago! Lol. I love all the yellows you are knitting with.

  8. Oh! Happy belated Mother's Day! Your sweaters are looking great and I think i might be putting those 2 Joji sweaters on my next years list! I love them!!! YOur son's socks are so cute in the Bee stripes. I hope you have a lovely Mother's Day.
