A Year of Projects Update - week 31

 I missed last week.  A combination of having no progress of note and it was my older son's birthday.  We took him to Southampton on Saturday, so that Darren could take him to see his team play football and me and Daniel spent the rest of the day with my friend that I haven't seen for years.  It was lovely but was a long day and no crafting was done.

This week hasn't seen much done - I had a parents evening on Wednesday and although they are now virtual so I can do it at home, it again made for a very long day.

I have managed a bit of progress on my Susurrus over the past two weeks and here it is now.

Please excuse the light - it is still early here!
I am knitting this from two yarns from Countess Ablaze - a fingering alternated with a lace silk mohair.  I love how it looks but it is taking a while at the moment  (although I'm not in a hurry - there are of course, other projects I now have in mind!)
And that, again  is it for this week.  Today I hope to get in the garden for a bit having done a bit of baking yesterday and going for a walk.
I hope everyone has a good week.

A Year of Projects Update - week 29

 This is going to be the shortest update ever!  I have done some knitting but no project looks any different!

Instead, the shower has stopped working, the car is in the garage and I've been at work.  It could be worse - we have a bath, a second car and at least I  gave a job.

So I have lots to do today and hope to be back next week with progress of note...

It's Thomas's birthday next week so maybe not - let's see.

Anyway  hope you all have a great week.

A Year of Projects Update - week 28

 It was back to school this week, which, of course, put a dent in my crafting!  

I did get a little done on my Susurrus and have got to the point of dividing for the sleeves and body. 

Apologies for the photo, it is early and dark here and I'm not ready to put on lots of lights!

I haven't done much other crafting than this, but I have been trying to do a few tings for me and my health.  Apart from the obvious knitting for self care, I went to yoga this week and today me and Daniel are going to go for a walk and get ourselves out.

And so, that is that for this week!  I hope everyone has a great one and I will be back next week.

A Year of Projects Update - week 27

 Happy New Year!

This is me this morning.

I put the decorations away yesterday and had a good sort out and clean, so that I could spend today and tomorrow relaxing.  I have some cooking and baking I would like to do  but otherwise it's just knitting for me!

The project in the picture is Susurrus by Joji Locatelli.

I also finished my little cross-stitch which I have turned into a little pillow and will be for mum.

And that is all from me this week.  I return to work on Tuesday, so productivity I'm sure will Dall at that point!  I hope you all had a lovely New year and have a good week.
