YOP Update

Evening Knitters and Bloggers…

I am a little late this evening posting but I had an important task  to do today…we were bringing the 7 children to meet Santa Claus…and oh what excitement..we organised a trip to the toy store as well as they had been saving their money up all year so by this evening we had 7 very tired but ecstatic children lol… that’s part of the magic of Christmas I think though and we used to do the same when we were children so I love to continue on the tradition of it.

Progress this week has been great.. The Gryffindor scarf has been finished with the ends finished off. All it needs is some fringing and its ready for wrapping.

I then late last night started the Ravenclaw scarf. This one I’m doing the smaller size on as Alan is not very big and I don’t want it swamping him. Some of the Ravenclaw scarfs I’ve seen have opted for a royal blue but I’ve opted for a navy blue with the silver.

The Ravenclaw Scarf started.

The dishcloth I had to finish last week got started and I’m half way through its companion for the set.

With only two weeks left until Xmas Day I’m thinking the fourth Hufflepuff scarf may get cast on but not finished in time to be wrapped so I may cast on a headscarf for Caoimhe as this is who the Hufflepuff scarf is for..more on that decision next week.

Happy Knitting,
Ruth

  1. wow, how lovely to take all the children to Santa and the toy store! Christmas is so very different when you see it through a child's eyes. The scarf is beautiful, and I love the navy and silver together. The set of dishcloths will be lovely too. Absolutely no idea how and where you find the time to do so much!

  2. Congrats on finishing the scarf! I like the navy better than royal too.

    I truly like the navy and silver. Great choice. You are making great progress on the scarves. Hopefully the 3rd one will be done in time for St Nick to deliver it.

  4. I know for a fact how much work the HP scarf is, so good for you! It looks great. I think I'd like Ravenclaw better with navy rather than royal blue too!

    Nice scarf. My mom made me a Griffindor scarf but somehow I lost it when I moved to texas. It was double thick for extra warmth. Very handy when you are a college student in MN.

    Love all your gifts and love the dark blue & silver; great choice. You have been one very Santa's elf!

  7. So glad you got that scarf done Ruth. I love Alan's colors, they look great! Oh it must have been priceless last night. All 7 of them! How special for you and Ian.
