Year of Projects Update Week 13

This week was lots of knitting but not much to show.  I started the 2nd Vancouver sock, and I am on the back of my son's gansey.  I have been combing and spinning my Friesen fleece and it WILL be done before September 30th (she said confidently). 

I have about three inches done on my Birdsong sweater and I can't wait to start the charts.  Maybe tonight?  Who knows. 

I do have one quick start and finish.  I was tired of my clothes pegs spilling all over the deck everytime I hung my laundry outside, so I knit up this cute little peg bag.  I used some Cascade fixation, held double and it is the perfect weight.  I cut a wooden hanger to size and Voila, no more spills!

Big Smile!

I also finished my Gnome.  I will post his finish picture next week - so no spoilers this week for those of you taking part in the KAL.  You can go to my Ravelry project page if you want to see him before next week. 

Mostly this week has been all about my ocean swimming which I blogged about here.  

It has been a good week.  My new medications have kicked in, and the cold water therapy is really amazing.  It has actually been a very good week. I haven't been able to say that for the past year. 

And my Hoya is blooming - first time since I repotted it in the spring.


If you want to see what other Yoppers are up to you can check out the right side of my blog for shortcuts to their posts. 


  1. The Hoya bloom is so delicate looking. I had never heard of this plant. Your birdsong sweater colors are great. Some of my favorite tones. How cleaver to make a clothespin holder. It looks quite sturdy.

  2. Ooh that birdsong looks like it’s going to be pretty already, gorgeous colours. I’m glad you are enjoying the swimming. I have friends here who love it too. Liz

  3. What a cute knitted peg bag! And I like your original new YOP graphic. :)

  4. Your bird paintings are amazing. To be sooo talented. What joy. So glad to hear you are feeling better. What a cute and great idea for the clothes pin holder.


I look forward to reading the comments. It makes me feel like I am not just posting into the void.
