This week has been a week of steadily working through “The Secret Project”. I have a photo of a small piece of it as I know some of you have been very curious so if you want to figure out what it is you can lol. As you can see I’ve been working mainly with the green and the first version should be complete today ready for gifting later in the week. Then I need to crack on with the second version as time is running short. I’m using King Cole Bamboo Cotton with a 3.5mm needle for green piece.

I got the Easy Crocheted Dishcloth I had on the hook last week finished. It was done in lots of time for Fridays FO post but I just ran out of time to complete it. Ruairí has a virus all this past week and now Alan and Caoimhe have come down with it, Ruairí is just now coming back to himself so I expect to have another week of ill little ones. Anyway onto the finished cloth as that’s what we are here to see. This was crocheted with Lily’s Sugar N Cream and a 5mm hook.

I’ve not made any progress this week on my Stormy Sky socks but once the Secret Project is done I can press on with those without interruption.
I have a cowl pattern I’m going to knit up for an Aunt of mine for her birthday and this will count towards my knit one cowl this year. It won’t be for me but it still counts.
This is how my list is looking so far
Hats :- 1/6
Harry Potter Hufflepuff Beanie – just one left to complete the collection
Strib Hat– I have yarn to knit three of these for the three younger children – COMPLETE 3/3
Hermione Hearts Ron
Slouched Tuva Hat
Cowls :- 0/1
These are a few of the patterns I like but I’ve not picked which one or indeed how many of them I will knit, that is to be decided when I start on a cowl.
Eirin Cowl – these also have a pattern for fingerless gloves which I love also
Rhosyn Cowl – these also come with a pair of matching fingerless gloves and a headband
Pendleton Cowl – I love the colourwork in this one
Fingerless Gloves :- 1/1
I want to make one pair of fingerless gloves this year, more if I get the time. Again these are some of the patterns I have in mind but I’m undecided on which one.
Victoria Fingerless Mittens
Susie’s Reading Mitts – COMPLETE
Hermione Hearts Ron Fingerless Gloves
Socks :- 0/1
I would love to knit a good few pairs of socks but that not may be possible so I shall aim to knit this pair anyway and anything over that shall be a bonus.
Hermiones Everyday Socks – STARTED
Dishcloths :- 15/25
My aim is to continue knitting one a week until the end of December. This post I’m moving here to a Sunday and I’m making it part of the projects as it will be something I’m doing. – Weekly Challenge
Advent Garland :- 24/24
Smitten A Holiday Garland – this I fell in love with and as family who love an advent calendar I thought this might be different and fun this year, especially if I fill each mitten with a little piece of chocolate for each of the children. – COMPLETE
Items for Baby :-
Baby Kimono 1/1 COMPLETE Demne Cardigan 1/1 COMPLETE Sabine Jumper 1/1 COMPLETE Christmas-y Baby Hat 1/1 – COMPLETE Cute Noggin Baby Hat 1/1 COMPLETE Owlie Sleep Sack 0/1 COMPLETE Pinwheel Baby Blanket 0/1- COMPLETE Burp Cloths 1/1 COMPLETE Wash Cloths 4/4 – COMPLETE Baby Mitts 1/1 COMPLETE
