A Year of Projects Update - week 26

I hope everybody has a lovely festive season and Christmas if you celebrate.
I finished both projects that I wanted to.
Rugged coat is done.  I love it.  I knit it in Knit picks city tweed in blue blood.  It is just the right size - big enough to wear as a coat, but not so big I drown in it.
I have worn it everyday since I finished.
I also finished my festive socks for the strictly sockalong.
The yarn is from Stranded dyeworks - naughty list.
As a result, I have made quite a lot of progress on my advent calendar socks.  I am now past the heel.
This is using yarn from my Little French Meadow advent.
I have also made a bit of a dent in my blanket.
We are now installed at mum and dad's!  I have brought my advent socks and blanket.  I have also brought supplies to make a new year pair of socks with yarn from under the tree.  And I also settled on Julgran by Andi Satterlund.  This is a Christmas jumper, but I figure of I get it underway now, I should be able to finish it in time for next Christmas.
So that is is for now.  I should be able to show you my new cast ons before the new year!
Hope everyone has a marvellous week.


  1. The rugged coat looks great and I love the Strictly socks. If there’s another Strictly KAL I will join in next year. Now how do you know there’s yarn under your tree? Has someone been squeezing their presents to check for squishy items? 😉

  2. Oh, that cardigan is lovely! I totally looooove tweedy yarn! And I also like the festive sock - isn't sock knitting just the perfect holiday project? I wish you a very nice and relaxing holiday!

  3. Hope you have a wonderful week Lucy and enjoy the celebrations and time spent with your parents and family. All the finishes are great! I really love how the Rugged turned out and the socks look great too. Looking forward to seeing the other makes as you start them.

  4. Hooray for the rugged coat being completed. Perfect timing too. It looks so warm and snuggly. Your socks are cute but I really like your Advent socks. The patterning of the yarn is quite dynamic.

    Happy Christmas!

  5. I love the look of Rugged Coat!! It looks wonderful!
    Merry Christmas ♥
