A Year of Projects Update - week 46

 Blimey time is just flying by at the moment with so much going on!

I have done a tiny bit of crafting and have some terrible photos!  Next week I should have better pics!

I have done a little more on Maywick. 

Still on the body but getting there!
I also started a dress.

I know it doesn't look like it but I am quite far along.  I will share the pattern and hopefully a nearly finished object next week.
Today has been a bit manic  - it was Daniel's birthday a week ago and today I took him and some friends to an escape room and then afternoon tea which they loved.  
Thomas has had his first GCSE exams this week - he has 3 weeks of exams to go.  These are the big ones before he hopefully goes onto A levels - if he gets the grades in these.  I also said goodbye to both my GCSE and A level groups before their exams.  One of them made my this
Which I thought was quite sweet!
Anyway, that is about it, this week.  Hope everyone has a great week and I hope to be back with progress next week!

A Year of Projects Update - week 44

 Well look at me go!  Thought I would get my post done early so I don't forget!

It is a beautiful Sunday morning on this Bank Holiday weekend 😎  So I am hoping to get out in the garden once I have popped to the superstore down the road to get a few nice bits and pieces to eat!

Things are blooming in the garden.

So today I want to get out there to get on top of the weeding and hopefully to start organising some pots.

I have been making some progress on my Maywick. 

This is a vlose up on yhe gorgeous pattern.   I am using loads of leftover yarn mainly from John Arbon and am loving it so far.  I don't usually enjoy bottom up construction,  but three of my recent knits (two Tegnas and this one) have been and I loved doing them and the two Tegnas are favourites to wear.  So maybe I am a convert!

I've not been knitting anything else - needless to say my 24 socks in 24 is not going particularly well 🤣  but I will get back on it (unlikely it will be that many though now!

And that is that - Thomas has his first big exam for GCSE this Thursday, so we are all gearing up for that - then we are firmly in exam season!

I hope everyone has a great week.

A Year of Projects Update - week 43 week

 Oh my, time is going so quickly!  It's been a somewhat busy week with very little knitting progress.  

As such,  this is going to be very short.

I am still working my way through Maywick from The Shetland Trader. 

I am knitting this in various bits of stash yarn,  mostly from John Arbon Textiles.  Now hopefully, this week should be a little quieter and I should be able to do a bit more.  

Next weekend is a long one so I may even pick up some sewing!!

I hope everyone has a great week.
