A Year of Projects Update - week 7

 I cannot believe it is nearly the end of our holiday!  We are off to Cornwall today so am posting now before we lose internet for a week.

It is going to be a quick update this week as we are finishing packing in a moment. 

I finished my jacket but have not taken photos so will post that when I am back.  I have made progress on my wrap top, although it doesn't look like it!  I got to the end of the right side and realised I had made a mistake.  Now usually I live with mistakes and make them a design feature, but this time I couldn't, so had to rip back.  Anyway,  I started the front again, but this time both sides at once.

It's coming along nicely now - I am not taking it with me, just taking my socks as I hope to catch up on some reading.

And that really is it - we have been visiting places this last week but I will catch you up on that in a couple of weeks.

Hope everyone has a great week.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful vacation. Holidays always go so fast. Your top looks really good. Love the textured pattern. I really need to work on my reading/knitting balance. I hardly read at alll any more and just haven't gotten the hang of audiobooks. I never remember to disconnect the earbuds from my phone so I end up missing calls.

  2. Enjoy the last of your holidays. Your wrap will be so nice when completed. Sometimes a design feature is just not acceptable. You will be very happy you took the extra time to correct it this time.

  3. Have a wonderful time. Your knitting is really nice...I love the pattern it is making like a waffle pattern. I'm not sure I could back track like that. Knowing me I would probably have to start over! LOL! This is Sam

  4. Liz here. Sounds like your summer has been busy and I hope the weather is being kind in Cornwall this week. Pouring rain here.
