A Year of Projects Update - week 39

 I completely missed last week.  There was no particular reason, just ran out of time.  This week, however, I am on holiday, so have plenty of time!

Having more time does not translate to more progress though!

I have finished the Delovely skirt- just a belt to go.

This is knit in John Arbon Textiles Yarnadelic.

I was going to start a yoga top, but as I was going through my fabric stash I came upon an old top that had perished under the arms.  I also had some old leggings, that I have upcycled together to make a yoga top.  I have bound them at the neck and now just have to hem the armhole.

I have lined up a top and a hat which I will write about next week as hopefully   they will be WIP's by then.  I have done a little gardening this weekend and have got some potatoes sown.

We also had our first bbq last night.

So here's to a productive week!  Hope everyone has a good weekend. 


  1. All of your makes look lovely. How clever to repurpose items into new.

  2. How wonderful to get to enjoy the outdoors again. That's some pretty impressive up cycling. I can't imagine taking on the knitting of a skirt. Congrats.

  3. What a clever idea to combine those items to make a new yoga top. Don’t forget to let us know how you find the knitted skirt after a few wears, I’m very interested to see how it copes being sat on etc.

  4. Your skirt looks so lovely. What a great way to repurpose your leggings.
