A Year of Projects Update - week 51

 Although some things have calmed down this week, it still seems as though life is abuse as ever!  The week also began unbearably hot, but finished quite chilly with flooding!  Somewhere in the middle would be nice!

I shall start this week's update with a forgotten FO from last week.

This is my vest no.2.

I knit this in some Exmoor Zwartbles from John Arbon Textiles and I am delighted with it .  I think it will go with lots of tops in my wardrobe.  I won't wear it next to skin as it is a bit toothy, but that was never the idea anyway. 

I have done a bit more sewing this week  but more on that in a couple of weeks time.

Otherwise my four quarters is trundling along.   I have completed one quarter and now am on the second which is long and thin, as it makes a tie.  So I have about a meter to go!  I am knitting this in a linen yarn from Drops.

I haven't done a lot more this week.  Last week's sewing Weekender was great I really learned a lot including pattern matching, which may link to my current sewing project!

Anyway,  more of that later.  I hope everyone has a great week.  


  1. Your vest looks great, I bet it will be handy. I have a lot of body warmer type items but none knitted yet. My Quick Sand was in Drops linen and although it was rough on my hands now it is so soft after lots of wearing and I love it. How’s that application to next year’s sewing bee coming along? (I figure if I put it in your mind enough maybe you’ll do it one of the years hehe!). I’ll be lost of Wednesday evenings without it.

  2. I love vests, knitted, sewn, crocheted. Just so useful. Yours is a great fit, too.

  3. Your vest looks very nice. Sounds like wonderful yarn!

  4. Your vest does look very nice and would go with a lot of outfits.

  5. I love vests! Yours is so cute on you. It is really hot here now and I just checked and Fall isn't for another 15 weeks....ick!

  6. The vest is perfect. They are such a versatile wardrobe piece. I would be happy to send you a bit of our heat. 48C is a bit too warm for this lady.

  7. I'm in love with your new vest! I should really make myself one as my next cast-on!! Thanks for inspiring me!

  8. Yes to the vest! I hope your weather settles down and becomes more middle of the road.
