A Year of Projects Update - week 47

We have all been a little under the weather this week.  But it hasn't stopped the crafting.
I finished my no nylon socks in the Knitting Goddess Wensleydale and Polwarth.  I followed the blueberry waffle pattern for the first time and this was lovely, nice and easy but interesting.  I also did a fish lips kiss heel and did a rounded toe.
I also finished my peeping cowl by Joji Locatelli.  I loved this pattern and the yarn is devine (a merino cashmere blend) - I'm looking forward to being able to wear this.

As a result my WIP's are the same and I have not worked on them.  I have the Donder and blitzen hat, Thomas's second sock and Boxy to work on this week.  I have wound my yarn to cast on my second sock club sock - Dalez (as I don't want to not have a sock otn!)

Every year I say to myself I will not do the outfit along with Andi Satterland, and every year I change my mind.  This year is no exception.  She has just released Zinone to go with the outfit along and I love it, so I have ordered yarn ( a lovely BFL/silk from Eden Cottage) and will be going to Brighton to get some fabric in a couple of weeks to make a second Dominique skirt to go with it.

To join us or to follow what the group is up to, please come over here.


  1. I've been hearing lots about the blueberry waffle sock and yours Lucy is gorgeous. I just love your peeping cowl! What a fantastic knit. I hope you are all better and I can't wait to see what you will make!

  2. Your Peeping Cowl looks so cool, Lucy. I was liking the colors in the first photo, and then in the second photo they look different, but I like them too! At first I wondered if they were two different (but similar cowls). But they are the same one, yes? If I could wear anything that snug around my neck I'd be looking forward to cold weather and wearing it too.
