A Year of Projects Update - week 2

 There is only two weeks to go to the summer holidays and to say I'm excited is an understatement!

I haven't done much crafting this week, but I  have had a little dig out of the projects that I  have on the needles.  Apart from the Battenberg blanket, I would really like to get these finished soon.

Firstly, four quarters is coming along nicely.   I just have the end of the last tie to do.

This is knit in a Drops linen yarn.

I have done a few more rounds on my skirt but you wouldn't know it!

This is being knit in Travel knitter yarn.  When I finish the Four quarters I will put in lots of work on this and see if I  can get it done!

I also have my Christmas jumper for Daniel to finish as well.

This is in John Arbon Textiles yarn (knit by numbers) and is another project I would like to finish soon.

And finally my socks.

I  am up to the heel turn on these, so hopefully, plain sailing from here!

No sewing this week, but I  did take receipt of some more flowers - peonies this week which I thought I was going miss out on.

I hope everyone has a great week.


  1. Daniels jumper is so sweet. Love those reindeer on it. Are the socks going to be short or long? Fournquarters or almost done..hooray. sounds like an FO for next week. Then the skirt shouldnflynoffnthe needles.

  2. What a productive week!! I'm excited to see your FOs!
    Your flowers are quite lovely.

  3. What a cute Christmas jumper. That is an interesting pattern for your socks. You are knitting a skirt? That sounds like a big project!!

  4. What an adorable Christmas jumper. The four quarters pattern looks very interesting. I can’t wait to see the finished sweater.

  5. Woo hoo, looks like you are all set for having lots of Finished objects in the next few weeks and it must be great to be so close to the summer holidays. The Scottish schools broke up mid June so I now keep forgetting England is later. The Christmas jumper is brilliant!

  6. I love, love, love your focus! I've been trying to finish stuff this year too and it feels so good to cross each finish off the list. Looks like you're making good progress and that Christmas jumper is EPIC!!!

  7. Love the reindeer jumper. So very cute.
