YOP Year 3 Update

Posted on: January 12, 2014


This last week has flown by in a flurry of spotty younger children. Elizabeth came down with them earlier in the week and has at least stopped itching. Ruairí though is just now coming out in them having been feeling unwell for the last couple of days. Today is also his 6th birthday poor pet. He is for now distracted from the itch with presents.

Projects this week have been worked on here and there and progress has been good considering all things.

Rose Burrow was introduced on Thursday on the blog here.


The motifs for the daisy blanket are nearly done. I’ve a few more to finish off today then I can finish off the threads on them and make them up into squares ready to join.


I’ve done some more on my hat, not much only what could be done while I was at the hairdressers, yes my knitting and crochet comes everywhere. I’ve been known to be crocheting in the cinema lol. I’m not going to show you a picture as it’s not much further on from last week.

I have been slowly updating my yop projects page on Ravelry but I have some more on that and will pop the list up again then when that is all complete. I hope to do some more on that this week, work on a few orders and move the blanket on towards finishing.

Now I must go, cake needs readying for later.

Ah, the dreaded Chicken Pox. We haven’t had it in our house (yet) but Little Man will have the vaccine before he goes to school. I’d rather he just get it but if he’s like Husband, getting it won’t do any good and he’ll get it a couple times. ::sigh:: Husband had it three times and we still don’t know if he built up the immunity.

Oh, do the children have the chicken pox? I remember some of mine getting those. Poor little ones and one on his birthday? What cake did this one pick out?
I love Rose Burrow and I can’t wait to see the blanket put together. I know it’s going to be so sweet for a sweet little girl. I updated my YOP list and Ravelry projects this week too and the reading list. Thank you for the Goodreads tip, it will help to be able to update all in one place. I am ready to work on something for me as all these boy colors are starting to bore me. They’re okay but I’m needing some brighter colors…soon. LOL! Wish the birthday boy a happy one for me.

The bunny is so cute. Sorry your kids are spotty and itchy, miserable time for them

Oh boy. Chicken pox? I assume no vaccine for that on Ireland. Kids are given that here. Didn’t have it in my day. Sorry Ruairi is suffering and it’s going around your house. You take care too as the virus lays dormant in your body and can be activated at any time when you’re stressed or whatnot. It’s not true shingles occurs just at elderly age. I had it at 27/28.

All our bigger ones had it when small so it is only our younger four who are likely to get it, yes the bigger ones may get it again or indeed get shingles and yes getting shinges is not limited to those of elder age it can occur in any age. We don’t have a vaccine for it as most children get it as young children and get over it quite ok and so build an immunity to it.

Happy birthday Ruairi! Hopefully he’ll soon have some delicious cake to distract him from the itch as well. I’ve never had any of the childhood diseases, so I can’t really commiserate.

I do love your creativity! I am glad that you share these adorable bunnies and friends with us (what feels like) every week :)

Hope the cake was lovely and that Ruairi felt well enough to enjoy it.
Rose is lovely, just like the others, looking forward to seeing the blanket.

I remember myself having the chicken pox, that’s not at all fun! I hope your boy could enjoy his B-day somewhat even though the itching probably is making him mad.. Rose Burrows is really cute, and I can’t wait to see your daisy blanket progressing!

I hope your kids feel better soon. Rose is super cute!

Your designs are lovely as always. Sorry about the little ones being unwell, I hope they won’t itch anymore soon! Is it one of those things they should catch as children, as it is a one time thing and much more serious when grown up?

Have a lovely week!

Yes this is definitely one of those things that’s best caught when a child so I’m glad, better to have it over and done with really.

Star Rating

5 STAR - LOVED. This is a book I loved so much I stayed up all night reading and for the entire length of book it remained within easy reach. This is also a book I'd need to own my own copy of.

4 STAR - REALLY LIKED. I would stay up to the wee hours of the morning to read this. I wouldn't necessarily have to own my own copy but I would need to know I could take it out of the library.

3 STAR - LIKE. This is a book I'd happily read until bedtime but could easily put it away until the next day. It is also a book I would read once and then pass the book on if I owned it.

2 STAR - OK. This is a book that I would read half an hour here or there and would be a bit of a chore to finish.

1 STAR - MISS. This is likely a book I would not have finished and I would certainly hope it was taken out from the library as to have spent money on it would be a shame.
