A Year of Projects Update - week 43 week

 Oh my, time is going so quickly!  It's been a somewhat busy week with very little knitting progress.  

As such,  this is going to be very short.

I am still working my way through Maywick from The Shetland Trader. 

I am knitting this in various bits of stash yarn,  mostly from John Arbon Textiles.  Now hopefully, this week should be a little quieter and I should be able to do a bit more.  

Next weekend is a long one so I may even pick up some sewing!!

I hope everyone has a great week.

A Year of Projects Update - week 42

 I seem to have managed to have missed another week!  

Life seems to be quite busy at the moment.   I do have a couple of projects to share though.

Whilst at my mum's, I made a baby cardigan for my sister in law's new niece.  She had asked mum to make it but she was not up to it.

This was knit using a free pattern on Ravelry and some yarn mum had.
I  also started Maywick from the Shetland Trader.   It has been a while since I knitted lace and I am really enjoying it!
This is also using lots of stash and leftovers so a win all round.
I haven't done much else  - a little in the garden but that is it.
Hopefully I will get myself organised to be back next week.   And I hope everyone has a good week.

A Year of Projects Update - week 40

 I'm a day late!  Had all good intentions to do this yesterday, but somehow the day got away from me.

I made quite a bit of progress last week.

I finished the belt to go with the Delovely skirt.  I haven't worn it yet but may try it out next week back at school and will report back then!

Squidney knits (Sidney Crabaugh) has just brought out a dress which I love quite a bit!  Having just bought the dress pattern from Vera Valimaki I feel I already have enough knitted dresses, but still think I may have cast this on by the end of the year!

I also started my hat - the Withy hat from the John Arbon Textiles annual number 3.

I have done more now and hope to have it off the needles by tomorrow.   I am going to Sonerset to visit mum tomorrow for a few days so want to take a new project with me.
That project is likely to be the Maywick sweater from The Shetland Trader book 3.
I got some potatoes out in the garden this week, but most things will have to wait a bit as it is still do wet!
And that is it - the rest of today will be preparing for my trip to Somerset and then return to school next week.
I hope everyone has a great week 💓
