YOP Year 2 Update

I’m a day late with this update but I’m here now. Would you believe we woke up to 3-4 inches of snow this morning !! The children are super excited although school is still on lol. But this gives me an excuse to light the fire and sit back and knit/stitch or read…not that you need an excuse at times to do just that !

This week I’ve been working steadily on “The Secret Project” and one has been complete and received so now I’m just finishing up the second and should have photos for next week, when they will both have been received. That’s the trouble when you want to make presents and those involved read your blog lol.

The intention this week is get “The Secret Project”done and then to carry on with the Stormy Sky socks and I have a hat to knit for my Mum and a cowl for an Aunt so I should hopefully have some lovely new projects cast on this week.

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

    I expect the children were very excited. We had an awful storm last night but no snow or frost here this morning.

    well done dear x

  3. I'm very keen to see the secret projects! You must be keen to have them off the needles as well. Probably can't wait to start a new thing or two :)Enjoy the snow. Better you than me!

    It is so hard to knit in secret. I always manage to tell a half dozen people! 🙂

    Snow and kids make for the greatest fun..I loved when Chris was young and we would head out to play…I know he loved it as every time it snows..he always calls me to tell me he's going outside to build an igloo…and he's now 21!

  6. Oh, I'm SO bad! I haven't updated anything as all my projects have been on hold for one reason or another but I am getting some major cleaning and organizing done but I don't suppose anyone wants to hear about that! LOL!How you do it is beyond me! Do you have a housekeeper? A cook? A laundress? I imagine you are just super organized and you should write a book about it so I can read it! Ha! Ha! Anyway, I love your projects…always! I can't wait to see the "secret" ones! The yarn sure was pretty! Take care!

  7. Oooh I can't wait to see the secret projects! And I still get super excited about snow, we've had it on and off all week, but it's been really sunny in between so t hasn't settled.
