A Year of Projects Update - Week 21

I was about to write that I had no FO's this week, but wait ....  I do!
Thomas's socks are finished.  These are blueberry waffle with a fish lips kiss heel.  Yarn is the Knitting Goddess sock in the Scooby Doo colourway.

Also I finished mine - this is WYS in the birds collection - bluetit.  I have them on right now - just a vanilla sock with a fish lips kiss heel.  I have a lot left so will use it up in gift socks next year.
I have no hat this week, but I did start a hat for dad in my own dyed yarn - will show you next week.
I have made great progress on Daniel's Christmas sweater - I am just finishing the sleeves two at a time.
I have also cast on two new socks, but haven't got too far with these.
first pair is Pebble by Mina Phillips in my own dyed yarn.
Second - the bottom colourway is the sock club yarn and pattern by The Knitting Goddess.  This is July - Cilegia.

Stash Enhancements
I have none and have had none for a while, but I have lots coming this week as I have a plan!!  Will reveal next week.
All the details are on my Ravelry project pages and to catch up with the other Yoppers - click the link to the right.


  1. Congrats on 2 pair of socks being completed this week. I just love that fish kiss heel. So much easier and no holes EVER. The Christmas sweater is beautiful. Love the color work on it. Two more pairs of socks for us to oogle, love it. Can't wait to hear what your plan is for your coming enhancement.

  2. I LOVE that sweater. I wish someone would make that sweater for ME (I'm too lazy for all that colourwork and stockinette in an adult size)

    I'm a little ashamed to admit that I'm still working on the same pair of socks for a third week - look at you with all those finished socks!!

  3. Oh what lovely FO socks you have there.
    Love the reindeer sweater, a very fun piece to wear I'm sure.
    You hand dyed yarns are gorgeous.

  4. Beautiful finished socks. And oh, how I love that reindeer sweater. What fun that is going to be for your son to wear. Lucky boy!

  5. Awesome FO's! Always feels good when things are completed. Love the sweater!!

  6. "Scooby Dooby Doo...Where are you?" I love the reindeer on your son's jumper. They are cute, happy ones.

  7. The Christmas sweater is so cute. Love the reindeer.

  8. Well done all around, but that reindeer sweater is fantastic!
