YOP10 Week 24/52 – Advent projects

Fluff

It’s not really a felting project, but I did make some fluff pom pom ornaments with some wool tops. One is a Christmas pudding with brandy sauce on (with a bit of holly and berries on) and the other just some rainbow tops. They are quick to make and now decorate my husbands monitors. They are tied and hanging from some handspun yarn. I may make some more.

Knitting

I was knitting each colour stripe on my Adventuresome shawl on each day until the 10th when I fancied a day off from it, which turned into more days off.

Latest 4 colours are cabbage patch dolls, furbies, buzz lightyear and Ghostbusters slimer

During the break from the shawl I cast on my 2nd Turtle Dove. I’ve decided to prioritise this project over the shawl as I’d like it finished by Christmas so I can wear it! The shawl is more a summer item so I will extend knitting it into January if needed.

Sewing

I made us some Christmas coloured face masks. I like mine inside out as it fits better and I prefer the snowflakes.

Other News

I have sold 4 scarves in my Etsy shop so far this month (5 in total) which is great. There are 4 left. At the moment my Etsy listings are due to expire mid month so there’s a few days left to make some last minute sales. I haven’t decided if I will renew their listings yet.

Next week will be knitting my Turtle Dove in the hope it is finished to wear at Christmas.


This is a Year of Projects post. Officially the Group is in its 10th year, but this is my 3rd year participating. If you would like to find more about the Year of Projects Group on Ravelry.

  1. I like your mask, very festive. Glad to hear you sold some items on Etsy. My sales have picked up, but I am still not happy with the fee situation. I sold more on eBay this year.

  2. That Adventuresome Shawl looks lovely! You are my no1 “need to make this too” inspiration – first the Havana / mosaic crochet, and now that shawl. You save me a lot of Ravelry searching time. LOL.

  3. Those pom poms are so cute. Great way to use up bits and pieces. Glad to hear your Etsy shop has sold items. The face mask is so festive. The fabric is so pretty with the gold. Enjoy your holiday.

  4. The colors in your Adventuresome shawl do look lovely — great pattern for Advent minis! You’ve honed your crochet skills this year, maybe I should try my hand at knitting since I’m looking for something to do with my set. Pretty Christmas mask! It may be a pain that we have to wear them but at least you’re doing it in style.
