A Year of Projects Update - week 48

With a month to go (how does that happen?) my attention has turned to finishing up and a new list!!
Some items will not get finished that will move to the new list, others will be deleted or replaced by others on the new one!!
For this week, I have cast on Rhombing Around.

I love this stitch pattern, it is a seersucker stitch.  Yarn is by Mellifera yarn in Blackberry that I had in stash.  The yellow is waste yarn, although it goes rather well!!
But the sweater is really on hold for a moment as I realise that as the YOP year ends it is my SIL's wedding.  Which means I have to finish the items for that!!  I have, therefore, been completing the shawl - Fragile Heart - I'm nearly there.

And I have cast on for my bag.  I am using my own pattern which I will at some point write up!

I have also been working on my next outfit along - I have made a muslin for the dress and made a couple of tweaks - luckily it fit reasonably anyway but I need a little more length in the bodice.  I will start properly on the 1st.
I have also cast on a pair of socks that I will knit to participate in the summer of socks with Rachel Coopey. These are Hector from A Knitted Sock Society in Heather by Knitting Goddess.

So a fair bit going on!!  It will slow down next week as I am back to school for the last half term - hurrah the summer is looming!
Join up with us now here as we sign up for next year.


  1. I like these blues you're working with, especially that inky one. The seersucker stitch is interesting. I haven't seen that before. The yarn is a great color.

  2. Loads going on and each one more interesting than the other. I love variety in wip's keeps thing interesting.

  3. Lovely projects in the making! looking forward to seeing them grow!
