A Year of Projects Update - week 4

Slightly more progress has been made this week!  We started our summer holiday this week and so have been out and about a little bit.  We are still at home for most of this next week but we are going camping at the end of the week.

I have one!
I finished Sanctuary this morning.  This is from Pom Pom magazine and I loved it. 
The yarn is Eden Cottage yarn Askham 4 ply in the colourway crocosomia, which was also lovely.  I originally used it for my grass river tunic, but it was never the right combination.  This is much better.
This now means that I have finished both of my outfit along outfits just in time for the deadline.
I also managed a few more rows on my shortie socks and turned the heels on both.  Now I only have to do a little more and they are done, since I have done them toe up.
We are having a very lazy day today so I have take the opportunity to start making some candles, which I will report back on next week.  I also pulled out my Margot pattern pieces as I want to make some shorts and trousers from my stash of fabric.

I am also going to cast on two new sweaters - epistrophy (that has been ready and waiting for a couple of years now) and Faience, so I have to wind all of the yarn in a bit. 


  1. Congratulations on the finish! It looks great! I just bought a sweater quantity of yarn, not sure when I'll cast it on...

  2. Sanctuary is very pretty. The yarn is perfect for it.

    Question for you......What bind off do you use for your toe up socks?

  3. Well done on the FO, it’s a lovely pattern and looks great. I like that sock colour too.

  4. I'm really loving the your Sanctuary sweater, that color is just wonderful. Two beautiful finishes! And I admire any one who can knit socks they are always on my wish list. Enjoy your camping trip!

  5. Beautiful sweaters and they fit so well too. Had to laugh that you finished two and now are starting two. Even steven my mom used to say!

  6. Sanctuary is looking great, well done on getting both your outfits complete by the deadline.
    Those socks will be off the needles soon and I'm looking forward to seeing the new cast ons and hearing how the candles went.

  7. Wow - Sanctuary looks beautiful. Congrats on making two outfits already! Enjoy the rest of your school break!

  8. Love both sweaters! And almost socks too, you've been busy. Looking forward to seeing both you new cast-ons.

  9. Gorgeous sweaters! I need a kick in the butt to get my first ever adult sweater done--my Boxy is languishing in a basket somewhere. I admire everyone making complete outfits--sadly I think my sewing days are done.
    Have fun camping-- sitting out side by a fire and knitting sounds fun. Do you get to have camp fires?

  10. Love your cardigan! And the sweater is great as well. Congrats on two finishes. Are the socks going to be ankle length or more of a sneaker kind of sock?
