YOP – year 8 – week 43

The first week of Easter break has been busier than expected but I’ve gotten some making time during the evenings.

I finished up and completed the Crocus socks last Sunday. I blogged about them here if you want further photos and to check out any of the details of them.

I then swatched for the Magnolia garment by Camillia Vad that I was wanting to cast on. I got gauge with this Rauma Finul PT2 and I’ve been working away on this during the evenings. I have just moved onto working the design on the bottom of the body before the ribbing. Most of this should be complete today with the sleeves ready to be worked on from tomorrow. I love working with the Rauma yarn. More on it and the sweater itself when it’s complete.


Speaking of complete sweaters I’ve blocked the Gingerbread sweater or at least my version of it. I am aiming to get a Project Focus post up this week about it with further details and shots including a modelled one.

I didn’t actually get around to cutting out the next Cuff Top, I’d like to say perhaps this week but we shall see. I am aiming to write up a post on a crochet blanket project in progress that I have and what I’m thinking of doing with it.

So lots going on. Now, the list has been updated and looks like this;
