Year of Projects Update – My 2nd Year – Week 20/52
This week has been 100% about knitting! We’ve been staying in a cottage for a week so I took my jumper and sock WIPs. Here’s some more dodgy photos, apologies it was dark when we got back on Saturday. I need to do the collar, additional length and sew in my ends on the jumper, so should be finished this coming week.
The socks I’ve just turned the heel and need to pick up the stitches on the heel next. I’m quite pleased with how my 1st hand dyed Christmas yarn is knitting up.
All three of the Highland Landscape Lampshades (with sheep) have been sold at the shop, so next week I shall be making some more. This time they’ll be 25cm diameter and will be a mix of pendant light and lamp ones. I have also ordered some more kits from the suppliers which will keep me busy in the coming months.
We spent a week in the Scottish Borders, staying in a converted old school hall, which inside looks more like a chapel with leaded glass windows, high ceiling and beams. We had a mix of rainy days and cold dry days and enjoyed exploring the area and walking lots of the forest trails and eating lots of cakes!
And finally, Bill’s Liver Transplant is scheduled for tomorrow (Monday 18th) in Aurora, Colorado. So prayers and/or positive thoughts would be appreciated for him and his donor.
