So this week has been a whirlwind of activity. I have managed to get some knitting and crocheting done… But no FOs. Not exactly the way I wanted to end of year four… But it is what it is…
However, here is the exciting news… I have a YoPyr5 list ready to go!!! With patterns and everything!!! I even managed to assign categories…. I am hoping that this organization will keep me focused :)
So here it goes…

Edie infinity scarf
Wee envelope sweater
Linnie baby sweater
Baby Surprise Jacket

TEST KNITTING (who for)
Celticknits The link takes you straight to the Ravlery group… It is run by a fellow YoP participant!!!
I am looking forward reading up on other lists posted by other bloggers!!!
Have a terrific Sunday!
just a quick post to let all readers know that I am working diligently on a test crochet and thinking about next year… What kinds of projects… Etc.
I am thinking I may have to be a little more disciplined this year and make a more consise list… Not so loose-goosy. When I am more strict with myself, I am more productive ;)
Any suggestions on what projects to work on or different strategies for staying on task would be more than welcome!
So since this pattern is live on Ravelry now… Found HERE … I think I can share photos of the test knit I did for Ruth at Celtic Knits
They were a dream to make! Ruth did a great job creating this pattern 😃
This week I finished a hat I have been working on for a bit too… It is for the dad of a girl that is in the same TaeKwonDo class as my two boys.
He has been seeing its progress… As I work on it while watching the boys in class… And from anything I can tell, is pretty excited about it.
(This handsome head model is my teenager 😃)
This week I also started a test crochet for another gal on ravelry… This is what I can show you for now. I am looking forward to this being done so I can wear it!!
Not much progress on the zombie squirrel… Needs to be worked on again I know… But I had some loose ends to tie up with other things… So my WIP pile wouldn’t get too out of control.
On another note… I found these today while running errands at Walmart with my boys…
Aren’t they adorable??
I got a few of them for coworkers too 😉
This is the 5th last Sunday of yr 4!!
This week saw some YoP items tackled…
I started a zombie squirrel…
And a hat for a fellow at the TKD school my boys attend regularly… It won’t take much longer I hope…
There were many other diversions that took me away from my knitting this week though…
(Sorry for the fuzzy photo) the wee one (6 yrs old) got his ear pierced…
The older one and I took this awesome selfie before school one day…
And then there was this early start to my saturday yesterday….
The younger son tested for his green belt in TaeKwonDo.
He is now attending the kids advanced classes and is headed for great things. The older one is too… But he has always been motivated… But the younger one… Not so much. There was a time where I was worried he was going to drop taking TaeKwonDo altogether… But he has finally come around ;)
So with all the business… This photo only makes sense… Sunday morning chill time with his cousin…
So that is all for now… I hope you have a great week!
This post will be short, sweet and to the point….
No YOP progress this week… I monogamously worked on a test knit for Ruth over at ruthmckeoncelticknits.com.
She designs such lovely things and as I mentioned last week… I had the honour of taking on one of her designs to knit. It was due yesterday… And I finished just under the wire…. With literally only seconds to spare…
The number of interruptions and diversions in ,y life this week were huge contributing factors. And I fear the next five weeks or so are going to be very much the same… As the 2014/2015 school year ends on the 25th of June here…. And there are many MANY end of year activities going on. Good thing I set reminders in my phone for everything… Otherwise I would be lost.
But the test is done and now I am setting my sights in finishing a couple other items that I hope will knit up fast… As I can feel myself slipping into this need for some instant gratification cycle that I go through every now and again.
I will hopefully be able to post a picture of the finished test knit next week… I am just waiting for the ok to do so.
So by my calculations this is week 46…. Because the are 6 more weeks untl the last Sunday of June… And YoP years (main stream) start on the first Sunday in July. If I am wrong on this, I would be happy for any clarification. Thanks in advance ;)
Not a major FO week. I did finish a cowl for a co-worker… Made in alpaca. Which is snuggly and warm…
Then I cast on this… Yep, another cast on and there are others put on the back burner while I motor through it.
It is a close up of a K2P2 rib…. Because it is a test knit for a fellow YoP member and I don’t want to give too much away…. But you can read her blog here, at Ruth McKeon Celtic Knits
That is all for now though… I have other little WIPS too… But they did not receive any attention this week I am afraid…
Have a lovely Sunday!
This slightly overcast Mother’s Day is what I am looking at when I look out the window… But that is ok… The weather it warm… There is a nice breeze and our windows are OPEN!
This blog post is probably the most amount of work I will have to do today… This is a very low-key others day… And I am ok with that!!!
The warm weather and busy busy work week… Kept me from my knitting and crocheting some… But I plan on rectifying that later…
I seem to have a bit of a stand still whe it comes to my projects right now… I have a few mini projects on the go… But nothing that is holding my attention for long… So I float between all of them. I am making progress on a cowl… A winter hat… A shawl… The poncho… And finally an infinity scarf for a co-worker…
So In the coming weeks I hope to be posting more updates with head way and lovely photos ;)
