Second Year of Projects Week 28

I've just got back to Nottingham, and let the cat out for the first time in 3 weeks. He was delighted to be out, but was back home in the warm in half an hour, so I feel very relieved that he doesn't hate us! I've got all my unpacking done, so I think it's time to update you on my Year of Projects.

So my actual update this week is a bit of deja vu! I frogged the much too big socks from last week, and started the smaller size. I'm now nearly at the point which I was at after all my Christmas knitting. They're coming out at a much better size now, and I think they'll fit.

Since we're half way through the year, I though I would take a look at how my year of projects is going.

So I'm not doing too badly, I am a little bit behind where I would like to be, but I will have more knitting time this term since I'm not commuting as far, so I think I'm on track! 


  1. Your YOP list is looking great. I loved seeing all your socks and projects and hoping you have a good knitty 2013

  2. Your YOP are looking great! I just joined myself...and poor the socks..and the preemie things

  3. It's lovely to see the recap of all your projects. With everything else you've got going on, you've accomplished a ton. I'm so pleased to hear that you've knit back to where you were on the socks and that they fit now. They're going to be so pretty!

  4. For the midway point, you're doing quite well :)

  5. I think you've done really really well. Welcome home! Glad the next round on the smaller socks is working out better for you.

  6. I'm so impressed with all the wonderful knitting that you've done. Brava!

    1. wow, that's a lot of knitting! Well done on the socks :) I bet your cat's giving you lot of attention now you're home.

  7. You are impressive! All that done and we are only 1/2 done with the year. :) Sorry you have spent so much time frogging but it seems you will be much happier with socks which fit.

  8. Glad all is well with your cat! Mine seem to hold a grudge! A wonderful review of your projects..hard to believe we are half way through!

  9. I love your Ghostie socks! My OH has asked me to knit him 'Pirate socks' with skulls and crossbones on. Is it daunting or very time consuming to use intarsia on socks?

  10. WOW! You've done so much and this photo retrospective really highlights that. I love the sock assortment.
