A Year of Projects Update - week 21

This is going to have to be very short and sweet this week.  I have been getting later and later posting, and next week I have decided is the time to get myself in order and try to get back to Sunday's!  I know it isn't a problem but I like to post on Sundays and I have missed it.
This week I have no finished objects but I have made progress on Rugged coat and my strictly socks.
I have no photos of these but I do have a new cast on....
I have done Knitvent by Helen Stewart for a couple of years now.  I have printed off the first 2 patterns in readiness but I have cast on the fingerless mitts called the How Quiet mitts.  I am going to knit two pairs one for mum and one for dad and so am doing them two at a time.  I have started the left ones.
The yarn I am using is Eden cottage milburn DK in the pink and a Rowan felted tweed that are the green ones.
And that is it for this week.  We have a day off on Friday so I hope to do some Christmas shopping and get a bit of knitting in.
I hope everyone has a good week and has a great thanksgiving if you celebrate.


  1. Well, how fun to knit two different colors simultaneously. I would think that would really keep things interesting as you knit the mitts TAAT!

  2. Love those colors and what a great gift! I hope you have a nice time shopping, find everything you want and stay under budget! LOL!

  3. Great colors for the mitts. I am sure your parents will love them.

  4. Lovely idea to knit mitts for your parents. I can't wait to see them finished.
