Yop Yop Yop - Week 47



Wow we are getting close to the end.

I have knit all the things on my list, plus many more, and I have mostly spun all the yarn I had as of last July. I haven't made any more Izzy dolls, but I have made two teddy bears. Does that count? No. But I still have five weeks to go.

Lately I have been tied up in anxiety attacks and oddly enough spinning doesn't help, so the cowichan-style sweater knit out of my fleeces will wait until I am more at ease.

Having said that I did finish the slouchy hat and I have enough yarn left over to make another child sized one.



I have finished three and a half Iona squares. I can knit half of one a day before I get tired of all the cabling.



When that happens I switch to my Dizzy sweater. It is slow going, but I am liking the results so far. My pinks are not quite a match in colour or thickness so I am alternating them.



Hubby's socks didn't get any attention this week, but I did give him the rat pot-holder for his birthday last Wednesday and he loved it.



I did buy a new pattern on Ravelry that has a funny story attached to it. You can read about that adventure here.
And on the baking front I learned to make Brazilian cheese buns which are gluten free because they are made with Tapioca flour.



And, my hoya bloomed for Mother's Day


which was a lovely surprise to compliment the apple blossom my dh put beside the bed for me to see as soon as I awoke last sunday.

    1. Thank you. I am taking credit for the very warm weather today. I think finishing this hat chased the cold weather away!

  3. You should get an award for the one to accomplish their YOP goals....while I should get a boobie prize for NOT accomplishing their YOP goals this year! LOL! The hat is so pretty and th sweater is going to be so lovely! Your cable squares do look complicated. The buns look good...there's cheese involved so what's not to love? I have not attempted double knitting yet but a potholder sounds like a nice place to start. My hoya is not blooming yet so I think I need to feed it. Your story about the Visa credit was hysterical! LOL! Nothing is funnier or sadder than true life! I hope your anxiety lessens and you are feeling chipper this next week!

  6. I love your post, Mary Anne. I love that you gave your DH a knitted "rat" potholder for his birthday. I love that he loved it. And btw... I loved the story of the new pattern you purchased. So glad you linked to it!
