A Year of Projects Update - week 36

I haven't made that much progress this week.  Although I don't seem to have been that busy??
Anyway I have made a little progress on both sweaters but not enough to really be able to tell.
I have also cast on a couple of little projects.
First I wanted to use up some leftover stash, so cast on a pair of DK socks.  I am going to marl several different leftover yarn from previous socks.  I am using the stitch count from some DK socks by Helen Stewart that I have, otherwise the pattern is made up.
I also decided I would like a cosy slouchy hat.  So I cast on the sock head hat by Kelly McClure.
I am hoping these two projects don't take too long!
I also took possession of some new yarn which I will unveil when I cast on the projects.
My new recipe this week was aromatic coconut and beetroot curry which I can report was lovely!  It was basically cubes of fresh beetroot and onion with curry spices and the tomato and coconut milk added.
Well hopefully, this week will be nice and quiet so I can do more crafting!  Now to get the apple cake from the oven.  Hope everyone has a great week.


  1. That curry sounds great. Noted. Thank you.

  2. Looking forward to seeing the progress on the DK socks. I love the color you are using for the sock head hat. Your recipe sounds quite interesting. Never would have thought of adding those items together myself. Have a great week.

  3. Curry sounds perfect. Hmmmm....maybe I can get my hubby to make me some tonight. Thanks for the idea.

  4. The curry sounds scrumptious! DK socks...what do you have to do differently as opposed to fingering weight? Are there special patterns for DK weight socks? Love the yarn...I'll take a look at Helen Stewart's patterns. Have a good week!

  5. Oh that curry sounds nice, I normally just have korma but beetroot sounds yummy.
