A Year of Projects Update - week 18

Wow, this week has flown by.  I have got a reasonable amount done.

I have a few FO's this week!

I completed the Christmas crackers that I wrote about here.

I am going to make a couple more as presents.

I also finished my first Christmas present this week - one of Sew Sweet Violet - wondrous washmitts.  Only another six to go!

And I also sewed myself a skirt, but I didn't photograph it - I shall for next week. 

Otherwise, I cast on anx have made great progress on Saknes for the latest Pompom magazine. 

I  am really hoping to get to the joining the back and two fronts today (I only have half of ond front to go).  I am using Malabrigo rios in Frank Ochre.

I have yet to cast on my Christmas socks!  But maybe this week...  we will see, I am back to school, so will not have the time really.

Anyway, hope everyone has a great week.


  1. WOW that's some busy knitting on top of teaching!! Your sweater looks great.

  2. You really did do a lot this week. The crackers are so cute and will make sweet gifts. The wash mitt will also make a great gift for Christmas. Sakness is a super cute pattern. Like the color you have chosen for it too.

  3. The crackers are so cute....genius idea! Look at you go with the sweater knitting! You always amaze me. I love the wash mitt and you made yourself a skirt too? Wonder Woman! Have a great week!

  4. You are rocking your christmas projects. I am sure the christmas socks will be on the needles very soon.

  5. Your crackers are BRILLIANT!! Family fun for years to come. I also really love the bath mitts, they look very useful. Easier to clean than a loofah, easier to secure for scrubbing than a washcloth!

    And the Frank Ochre colorway makes my heart sing... that is going to be one beautiful sweater!

  6. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
