A Year of Projects Update - week 28

Not a great deal to report this week as I have been almost exclusively working on Christopher.
But he is finished and he has a sweater and trousers.
I love him!  I am holding fire and doing more on other projects before knitting him more.
I did do a bit on Aiken and finished the first ball of wool.
This is interlacements zig zag yarn which is rayon based and feels fantastic.
I shall be making jam in a bit from some frozen blackberries and  that is about it.   I hope everyone has a great week.


  1. Christopher looks very smart in his outfit. It would be hard not to continue to knit him more clothing. Your Aiken is so pretty. That yarn looks perfect and has such a nice bit of drape to it. Jam making sounds like a bit of fun. Having never made jam before, does it take quite a while to do it?

    1. I use a quick recipe by Delia Smith, it takes a bit less than an hour, but you don't have to stand over it for all of that.

  2. Christopher is darling! Are the clothes removable? Is that why you said you are holding back from making him more outfits? That would be the fun part I bet. The sweater looks scrumptious in that yarn! Homemade jam? Yum! You really get a lot done for someone who works full time and has a family! Have a great week!

  3. Oh my goodness! You finished Christopher Rabbit so fast. And he's adorable! And so perfectly knitted. And that top is pretty. I love the color of the yarn you're using.

  4. Well isn’t Christopher a handsome wee chap! Very cute. That’s a lovely coloured yarn your using on the top and the detail is lovely. Mmm homemade jam! Yum!
