A Year of Projects Update

Another week flies by!!  I didn't update last week as we went to see the Touring Car championship.  We had a great time, the weather was fine and I managed to get some knitting done.  Thomas got to sit in a real live racing car so he was happy!!

I have made progress on Miss Winkle - here she is at the 30 loop stage - I have since completed another 4 and expect to be able to do a further 2 and then cast off in the next couple of days.

I have also progressed on the poncho for Lily - I am nearly at the division for the sleeves - again I hope to nearly complete this by the end of the week.

I finished the bunting!!

Finally I bought some flowers for myself today.  I chose the alstroemeria and my son chose the 'colourful' chrysanths!  But you know what?  I think they look quite good together - very spring\summer like and just the thing to lift the spirits!!

Hope you all have a lovely week - we are now on Easter break, so hope to get lots done!


  1. I love your Miss Winkle! The poncho is lovely! Looking forward to seeing your progress! Happy Easter Break to you!

  2. The bunting looks sooooo cute! Well done!

    I can't wait to see the poncho done. It's hard to see it properly while it's on the needles. And we're definitely getting into cardigan/poncho weather soon!

  3. Goodness you've been busy! Lots of progress on Miss Winkle and Lily's Poncho, you definitely deserve some lovely flowers! I love the bunting, I wanna make some too now! Your Thomas looks crazy cute in that car! Have a lovely week!

  4. Lovely projects and flowers :) Being in a real race car must be something!

  5. Oh, lots of lovely! Thomas does look happy in that race car. I love your Miss Winkle and the poncho is so precious. Love your fresh flowers...they bring happiness to all. Enjoy your Spring Break and maybe you can even do some knitting's the start of the outdoor knitting season! LOL! Take care.

  6. That is a nice bunting, very boy and timeless. Were you inspired b/c of his love for racecars? It's really cool how the whole ohana is into that sporting event. Do they have good food at those events? The poncho is adorable girl and the shawl is a fabulous color.
