A Year of Projects Update - week 39

 I seem to be on a two week schedule at the moment!  I keep thinking work is going to ease and then more things come along.  But hopefully, it is going to start getting easier.

The only project I havecworked on is my Soorik.

This is a pinafore that us knit bottom up.  I have done the hem and now am about 7 inches in on what seems like never ending stockinette!  I've still got several miles to go, but that is fine and about all I can muster the effort for right now.

I am knitting it in John Arbon Textiles Exmoor Zwartbles in the mid tone colourway.

And that is about that.  We had our first barbecue last night as the weather has been lovely.  It is a big cloudier today, but I  might go and do a few jobs in the garden later.

I hope everyone has a good week and I will work hard on returning next week!

A Year of Projects Update - week 37

 I ran out of time last week!  Little did I know this week we would all come down with Covid and I would sort of have loads of time!  

We are all getting over it now and none of us had any worse than cold symptoms, so I have managed to finish up a few things.

Firstly I knit myself some yoga socks with leftovers from my Susurrus. 

Of course, I haven't got to wear them yet but hopefully this week.

I also finished up a pair of Safiya dungarees from Tilly and the Buttons Make it Simple.

This is unpressed, but you get the idea!

I then moved onto some little felted mushrooms - as you do!  

These I am going to turn into a fridge magnet for my mum's advent calendar. 

I did do a little work on the Festive KAL sweater and my spring socks bug not too much to make a difference. 

And finally  I cast on my new project Soorik from The Shetland Trader book 3.

This is using some Exmoor Zwartbles from John Arbon Textiles.

And that is that for this week.  Hopefully  I will get some done this next week and will try to do two weeks in a row!

I hope everyone has a great week.
