YOP11 Week 46/52 – Stripes are addictive!


I constructed 2 x 25cm lampshades and dropped them off at the gallery on Tuesday morning and had an email on Friday saying they’d both sold already and they’d like more when I get time. So it’s time to stop procrastinating and getting distracted and make lots of lampshades!


My Ship Shape jumper has now been split for the sleeves and so this is going to be a pretty mindless knit of the body as there’s no waist shaping. Stripes are addictive!

It has been a wet and windy week so I couldn’t get out on my SUP. I did go to the cinema to see The Lost City which was funny. I kept my mask on through the movie, seeing as last time I was in the cinema I caught Covid. It meant I could relax and not worry. Masks are no longer mandated.

This is a Year of Projects post.  Officially the Group is in its 11th year, but this is my 4th year participating.  If you would like to find more about the Year of Projects Group on Ravelry.  Year 11 list.


  1. Congrats on your continued success selling your hand crafts, Liz. Your felted wool lampshades are so unique – I can see why they go quickly. I love the large pictures and being able to see your designs so clearly. 🙂

  2. So great you sales are doing so well. We were invited to a movie screening last night, but it was a sold out premiere and I didn’t want to sit in a packed theatre with 330 others, mask or no mask, so we streamed it from home instead. Covid seems to be on the uprise again here and our boosters aren’t due for another month. I hope you get out soon on your SUP board.

  3. I can see why your lampshades sold out….they are gorgeous! I love the sweater. Do you carry the yarn? It looks like a fun knit. I wear a mask everywhere….I’ll probably wear one in my coffin! LOL!

  4. Obviously people know good stuff when they see it – that’s fantastic that you’ve had so many sales of your lovely products! Really fun striped construction. It’ll be a great summer layer when it’s done, I predict. Here’s hoping you have better weather for outdoor activities this week!

  5. Those lampshades are so great and very unique. I see why they sell so quickly. Your Ship Shape is so pretty. Sounds like it is not going to be a relaxing knit until the bottom edge.

  6. Your sweater is pretty. It reminds me of summer with the colors and the stripes. I see a nautical theme. The lamp shades are beautiful. It’s great that you’re sales are doing so well.
