A Year of Projects Update - week 18

It's been the half term break this week.  We have had much fun and I have done a fair bit of knitting.
We went to Hever Castle, a year to the day that we went last year.  We went to the wildlife centre and we carved our pumpkins.

I started and finished two objects this week.  First up I converted the dog sweater to being knit in the round and here it is - I will pass it to the new owner and try to get a modeled shot from her!!
I also finished another hat for Christmas - that's three now - four more to go and various pom poms.
I am still going on both pairs of socks and the cloth, because I have been rocketing through my Miranda.

I have bound off the body and am now about to start the sleeves.  I want nice long sleeves but this just flies off the needles so I am hopeful to have it finished by next week (I want to wear it to the firework display).

  1. Nicely done! Can't wait to see the finished sweater. I wish we had castles around here...we actually do, but not like yours...

  2. Looks like you all had a great time!!! Great doggy sweater. Very cute. I'm still scared to try a Pom Pom. Maybe one day.

  3. Oh that Miranda is so pretty. You will be wearing it quickly for sure. Looks like you had a great day with the kiddos. Lots of fall fun for you guys.

  4. Whenever you write in a post something like "we went to .... Castle" I have a WoW moment. And then I remember your's is a land of castles! How awesome IS that?!?

    Another cute dog sweater. :) And prettily knit hat. And what a gorgeous Miranda sweater! Can't wait to see it finished. I truly admire your ability to be able to knit pretty things you will enjoy wearing. That must feel so good.

  5. Great progress. Your Miranda is gorgeous. You are almost there.

  6. That sweater is flying off your needles. I really like the color --still!--it looks to be an emerald green on my monitor and I have been dreaming of something teal or aqua or emerald instead of gray. Of course what did I cast on last night? Something gray.

  7. What a fun outing you had! I need to make a dog sweater for Annie, my miniature dachshund as she gets really cold in the winter. The hats are looking good and I need to get busy here with Christmas and gift knitting. The Miranda is so pretty and I can't wait to see it with sleeves and you modeling it! Have a great week and Happy Halloween!

  8. Every time I see a new picture of your Miranda, I like it more! How fun to watch that grow--can hardly wait to see it with sleeves. :)
