Year of Projects - week 13

A few finishes this week and, of course, some more CO's!
First up, I finished the sock, wrote down the measurements and stitch count and then promptly frogged it!!  I have cast on a new sock, but haven't got far so there is no photo yet.
I finished the chunky bag and I am very pleased with this.

I have CO a new one in a different colourway to make with wooden handles here:

I also finished the reindeer hat, which I love.  Of course my model loved it too - honking the nose!!

I have, therefore, had to cast on a new hat complete with nose for him!

Finally, I have CO two other new projects - little stockings for the Xmas tree and another Raspberry tart for me in some lovely Mellifera yarn which arrived this week in cerulean.

On the sewing front, I cut the fabric for my top and started cutting the fabric for a quilt I would like to make - going to sew it all up next week.

I think that is about it for this week!
Have a good week x


  1. Great finishes. I am sorry to hear you hated your sock, though. I am loving the colorway of the new purse. That should be quite lovely when done. I am sure your model will be so happy when he gets his own hat to squeak.

  2. Great bag! Can't wait to see it in the second yarn - it's so colourful and such a change from the first one!

    The reindeer hat is awesome. Your model definitely looks delighted by it!

  3. Cast On's seem to be a thing right now... 'tis the season i suppose... hahaha

  4. I loved that chunky bag last time I saw it and now that it's finished I want it... love your finishes xx

  5. What a great list of finishes and starts, love the reindeer hat and I can see how attracted to it your model is and the chunky bag is great, I'm loving the colours in the second one. Looking forward to seeing all the sewing as well.

  6. I just can't get over must be the fastest knitter on the planet...I mean REALLY! I love the new yarn and can't wait to see the purse made up in that. The reindeer hat is so cute. Why did you frog the sock? Didn't like it? Your yarns are looking gorgeous! and you work full time too? Please send me some of your energy.....a.s.a.p. LOL!

  7. Great bag, and I love the reindeer hat - adorable!! :)

  8. I love the reindeer hat!!! So fun!! I can't wait to see the Raspberry Tart knit up in that gorgeous cerulean!

  9. That reindeer hat is a winner!
