YoP year 5 – week 9 update

  
Here I am!  Sorry for missing last week… Internet access was sketchy at best while on my cottage vaycay.

I managed to get lots of knitting done 😉

I finished up two test knits!  

Here is a teaser of them both…  

love the way this electric blue and black go together!

 The above pic is of a test knit for Ruth McKeon Celtic Knits.  She does awesome work and I love doing these pieces for her!
 

such a cute button found at the LYS in Fenelon Falls , Ontario

 

The above pic is of a test knit for Dana Gervais.  She also makes beautiful things and this treasure will be one of my faves for a long time 😉 

As these two items were finished off, I dove straight into another… This time I can show you more… As it is not a test knit… And it is a quick addition to my YoP list 😉

It is the mobieous cowl from Estelle Yarns… In Drake.

 

this is a photo from the estelle website

 
And this is what I have accomplished so far…

 
Time will tell what I do with it… I will likely keep it of give it to a very deserving teacher at Christmas 😉

One really fun thing I got to do while away this past week was attend the LYS knit night in Fenelon Falls with my mom.  She started a new project too… A winter hat with cables.  She is pleased with her new project 😉

The Crafty Ewe is an adorable shop that I hope to get back to one day!

With any kind of luck, I will finish off the Rose city rollers this week… As they got absolutely no attention this week.  I would love to wear them as my back to school socks on September 8th! 

YoP year five – Week 7

  
This week was so busy… My summer camp job is coming to a close… So there are lots of ends to tie up and counsellors are getting sick left right and centre… I however… Appear to be as healthy as can be… Yay! 

This week I did a quick crochet headband for no reason… Those kinds of projects are always fun!  I hope I can show it off next week… There are ends that need to be worked in.

I still am working away on my Rose City Rollers… I think they are looking great… Don’t you? 

  
I am done the heel turn and he gusset… Now I need to just knit and knit and knit until it reaches the base of my little toe.  Then I will be onto the toe decreases.  Then all done! 

I hope to get these off the needles so soon… As I just signed on to do another test knit for Ruth over at Ruth McKeon Celtic Knits.

Like always for her designs… I am super pumped! 

Happy Sunday one and all! 

YoP year five – week six

  
Well this week flew by… And only four weeks left of summer vaycay!  I am looking forward to it actually… I landed a permanent job in the school board I work for and can hardly wait to start! 

But onto the knitting and crocheting… 

I started and finished a cute little baby sweater….  My project page for it on ravelry can be found HERE.

   
 
It is an open front baby sweater. I made the newborn size… But it may fit babies a little bigger than that…

I continued work on the Rose city rollers socks too. Only another 3/4 of an inch knit though… These will not take a whole lot longer I hope.

  
Intermittent with these socks I am thinking I am going to continue making hexagons for the second stocking… That way that task can be done too. 

So here is where I am so far with my YoP list

YoP YEAR FIVE WEEK 5

  
This week my post is delayed by one day because we have a long weekend here in Ontario this weekend, and this is the first chance I have had to sit down and write something! 

This long weekend, whereas it has been busy it has also been productive.  Since last post I worked some more on my rose city rollers socks and I am now on the gusset decreases.  

  
They still don’t look like much, but that is because they are top-down roll-cuff socks… I love this yarn though… I have made socks in it before and love how it all goes together. 

One thing I did start and finish this weekend is one of two stockings I want to make for my boys this Christmas… I think they were on my list last year… But they are definitely on my list this year… The one in the photo is the one I started this weekend and it is now at this point… I just need to work in all the ends (they are tucked neatly away on the inside so you can’t see them) and maybe do a red trim on the top.

  
The next one I make will be in the same colours, only the red will be where the green is and visa versa.  And it will likely have a green trim at the top.

Should I make one for. Yosef, it will be in a verigated yarn with red or green trim.  Let ends to work in at the end of the project.  

I also have In mind to make a couple if these soon… 

  
They should be quick knits, as they are open at the front and done In a chunkier yarn.  I like making baby knits… They are fast and easy. 

That is all for now… Must go catch up on some blog reading now 😉
