A Year of Projects Update - week 3

 I honestly didn't think I would be saying this again, but here we are - again self isolating!  This time it is Daniel and he can't stay home alone (Thomas was OK except he does the bare minimum of work without supervising!)  So I am home again until the end of term doing my lessons by Zoom!  One good thing I that some of my lessons have very few students as they are home too, so we all meet up on Zoom!

I am having a morning coffee in the garden with the birds 🐦 as we are having a little heatwave (nothing like elsewhere in appreciate that) and it will be too hot later.

I am currently knitting on my skirt, but again, not enough progress to warrant a pic.

I  finished my four quarters in the week.
Here it is.  I used a Drops linen and the pattern was in the last Pom Pom quarterly.   Here it is pictured with a skirt I  made earlier in the year.  I modified it today as it did up with hooks and eyes, but unfortunately that gaped a little, so today I added a zip (I don't like doing zips - which is why I avoided it in the first place!)
Now I  love both pieces!
I have also turned the heel in both socks, so hope this will be finished by next week. 
And that is that for this week.  
Hope you all have a safe week.


  1. Sorry to hear you have to isolate again, I'm hoping all goes well.

    Lovely four quarters sweater.

  2. Your four quarters turned out great. I like it with the skirt too. It looks like it will be a very versatile piece to add to your wardrobe. So sorry to hear you are isolating again. I have a feeling masks are going to be a thing again here soon with the Delta Variant making it's way through the US.

  3. Hope you have a safe week too - sorry you had to self-isolate again! Really pretty outfit. It looks great on you!

  4. Cute mug and beautiful garden. I'm not good about getting outside in July and August when it's so hot and muggy. You are a very talented sewer.

  5. I’m glad you’re able to work from home— but isolating is no fun. I can’t say that I enjoyed zoom teaching but I was glad to be home and safe.
    That PomPom sweater is so cute! That is intarsia, which has always scared me:

  6. What a sweet garden spot you've got there, Lucy. And well done on another outfit!

  7. That’s a great sweater. Sorry you’re isolating, it looks like you at least have a beautiful spot to take a coffee break in.

  8. Love your garden spot. Sorry about the isolation again. I fear that is coming towards us too. Darn Delta variant seems to be taking hold. So glad you have a lovely place to knit and sew, and may you be out and about very soon once again.

  9. Sorry about the renewed isolation. It's pretty trying. I'm glad you have a garden to enjoy though.

  10. Does being in lockdown again give you the opportunity to spend more time in your lovely garden with your knitting??

    Love the four-square top and skirt combo.

  11. I'm sorry you have to self-isolate again. Take care and stay safe, and here's hoping this pandemic will end soon.
    I do love your outfit, both pieces look great on you.
