A Year of Projects update - week 20

We took a lovely walk this morning to feed the ducks.  Gave me a chance to get out all the hand knits as it has got decidedly wintery here.
I finished my test knit this week.  I will show you as soon as they are released but they are lovely if I say so myself.  I did mean that I was able to cast on my November socks - I am knitting Dragon Pox by the knotty gnome in the Christmas tree colourway that I got from Mothy and the squid.  I have pictures of neither of them, maybe next week!
I wound my yarn for Thomas's Christmas jumper and hope to cast that on tonight.
I didn't make any progress on my mum's Christmas socks, but hope to put some work on them this week. 
I did make some progress on my Chuck sweater - I am now ready to start the front.
I have also made progress on the Pumpkin spice mittens.
I have my craft fair next Saturday so will be making sure I am ready for that and then the serious Christmas prep is likely to begin!  I hope everyone has a great week.


  1. You and I are both waiting to be allowed to show the lovely test knit socks. Those pumpkin spice mitts are the perfect colour.

  2. ooooh... the yarn you're knitting the Chuck sweater in is gorgeous! Love the different shades of purple I think I'm seeing. Or maybe that's the lighting. It's lovely!

  3. Gorgeous colors. I know that Pumpkin Spice is season, but that purple really jumped out at me.

  4. I also, love the colorway of Chuck. Looking forward to see that test knit completed. HURRY UP RUTH AND POST IT!

  5. You always have the most gorgeous yarns....after Christmas I am treating myself...if there's any money left! LOL! Love the pumpkin spice mittens an dcan't wait to see the test knit! Have a great week and it's beginning to look a lot like "Christmas Crunch Time"!
