A Year of Projects Update - week 23

Still don't feel prepared but I do feel much more festive this week.  We all started our advent calendars this week and this year I have a yarn one!

I don't have much knitting wise this week as I was fairly monogamous trying to get my November socks done.  I am pleased to report I did get them done in time and here they are.
Yarn is by Mothy and the Squid and the pattern is Dragon Pox by the Knotty Gnome.

In Works in Progress, I knew that I wanted to knit my advent calendar into socks, but I figured that I would have far too much yarn for just one pair.  Here are the socks so far.
So I decided to also knit Helen Stewart's Land of Sweets cowl from her latest knitvent collection, and so here that is.
I have the advent calendar from Little French Meadow and am loving it so far.

So over the next week I am intending to get on with Thomas's Christmas jumper and mum's Christmas socks. 
We went to see Santa today, so I will leave you with a couple shots from the morning while I go and make more mince pies (for those of you that asked last week, I use shop bought mincemeat so it does have suet, I am quite sure there are suet free versions)


  1. great idea to knit your advent calendar into socks and a cowl. So far lovely lovely colours.

  2. So much seasonal fun!
    Welcome to the addicting world of the Land of Sweets. It is impossible to put down!

  3. Lovely socks for November. Your Advent socks and cowl are great color too. I need to go and look up Land of Sweets now. I am the only one in my family that loves mincemeat pie. Needless to say, I never get any.

  4. I love the yarn you're knitting your new socks and the Land of Sweets cowl in. So pretty and festive. And your Christmas stitch markers are sweet!
