Year of Projects Update - week 34

We have had such a lovely week.  Me and the boys went to Somerset to spend the week with my mum and dad.  It meant we were able to relax and do very little for a few days.  I did, however, manage to fit in a fair bit of knitting.

I finished Abate - Daniel loves it, and, although the arms are a bit long, he has worn it lots.

I finished the bag - I just need to find the right handles now to complete it.

Most excitingly though.... I have made good progress on my Christmas jumper!!  This was supposed to be finished this last year, but I hardly started it.  Now I have finished the bottom ribbing and the first colourwork part, and am making my way up the body.

Very exciting stuff!

I have also finished my Coco this morning, which was so easy and straightforward I am very tempted to change my mind and have this as my wedding outfit.  I know it looks a little like a sack here, but I think it looks better IRL!!

As a result of completing a couple of projects I have CO some more!  I have CO Aiken by Andi Satterlund and snow socks.  Oh yes, and an Abate for Thomas.

  1. Very nice finishes....Daniel looks so happy in the picture...great smile! Love the colors of the bag...good luck on finding handles...

  2. Great job. It is so rewarding when a child will wear something made for them and do it willingly. Love the bag and the sweater. Coco looks totally comfortable and I can see why you would love to make another.

  3. He loves is so proud of his jumper! And I love the look of the start of yours.

  4. Daniel is as cute as a bugs ear! He looks adorable in his sweater. I sure love the gray and white of your sweater--can't wait to see more of it. Have a super week....

  5. The Christmas jumpers sure looks like a beauty! And yay for finishing the jumper...fortunately you can wrap long sleeves over your hands for extra warmth...hehehehe

  6. Awesome finishes! I love the cabling on that bag!!!

  7. That little man is too cute in his new jumper. I love your color work!
