A Year of Projects Update and Me Made May

So I missed another week of me made May. I decided to amalgamate the posts this week, I shall start with a year of projects then move to me made May.
I have no FO's this week, I am in stockinette land for most of my projects.  Which is fine, but can get a little boring at times, so I do have a cheeky new cast on.
I have joined the body on Understated by Joji Locatelli.  This is basically a V necked boxy so I now have 14 inches of boxy stockinette to wade through.  Here I am at the moment - I am using Penelope by De Rerum Natura.
I also have three socks on the needles, one pair of Rose City Rollers and one single stripey, both are going round and round at the moment, I will post pics next week.
I also have a pair of handwarmers on the go that I will post pics of next week as these are about to get past the stockinette part.
My new cast on is one by Woolly Wormhead and I love it.  It is Azula and is one of her designs that is knit from top to bottom and so each full row is composed of a bit of brim, then a bit of head, then a bit of crown.  There are lots of short rows of which I am using the recommended German short rows and it is fantastic.  The wool I am using is Rosy Green wool left over from my Nasreen.

On to Me Made May. Since it has been two weeks I will include a selection of outfits rather than a day by day account.
I wore my Camden Cap by Woolly Wormhead.  Yarn is Countess Ablaze. I will probably have this on again today as we are going to the racing.

This is my modified Coco - I love this dress and actually can't wait to make another.  You will see this lots of times worn with different tops.
 This is my first boxy - the worsted boxy, knit in Drops yarn.
 This is probably my favorite sweater - Breathing Space by Veera Valimaki, knit in my own dyed yarn and some travel knitter.
 Because I wore similar outfits on a couple of occasions here are my pyjama bottoms worn on more than one occasion!
 Another way of wearing my Coco, with my first Zinone over the top.  Zinone is by Andi Satterlund and is knit in a yarn by Eden Cottage but I can't remember which.
 A sneak peak of the socks under my leggings!
Buchanan worn yesterday, knit in yarn from Coldwater Mill.


  1. Azula looks quite interesting. Will love seeing it when completed. The Understated will be great when finished. That is a lot of stockinette. I do not envy you on that point. Although, once it is done you will have a very versatile piece to add to your wardrobe.

  2. Oh my you've been super busy. Everything looks great on you. I've seen quite a few of the Woolly Wormhead hats before, but never seen that cap before. That looks great on.

  3. Azula is a cool looking pattern. I love all your modelled projects. Well done!

  4. Love the Azula and the colors you're using. You definitely had a Me Made May for sure. What lovely outfits! You are so accomplished and get so much done! Have fun at the races!
