YOP Year 3


These weeks sure do seem to be flying by quite fast. All the posts this week got waylaid in busy.

Finishes this week have been steady.

I’ve had a post this week on Soul Mate which was here.


I have written up my second pattern for the No1 Cloth and it is with my test knitters, hopefully this week will see it released and I’ll give it a blog post here on the day it is released so do keep an eye out for it.

I have finished this cloth also which is next to be written up. This is one of my most favourite that I’ve done so far lol bear in mind this is only my third cloth to design but I do have ideas for three more just waiting to be knit and written up!

This cloth I’m also turning in for Quidditch today in the Harry Potter group.


In the rainbow nesting bowls you saw last week the orange one was completed and turned in for a class.


I’ve been working on another Flora and am at the feet part, which means it is nearly ready for dispatch.


I’ve also started the Strawberries and Cream Tea Cosy. I’m in love with the colours of this one myself and may need to knit another just for my own kitchen !


This week is going to be spent on the tea cosy mainly and getting the next Flora complete. Thrown in there shall be a nesting bowl or two for other Harry Potter Classes along with some cloths, well that is the grand plan !

Did you like how I finally got the list together ! Lets hope it remains so this week lol, here it is.

    That’s such a pretty cloth…….will look forward to the pattern.

    Both the shawl and cloth are really lovely 🙂 You are quick, lots of FOs all the time in my opinion. I’ve done the not so smart thing of starting like three blankets… Takes a while 🙂

  3. Renee Anne says:

    I’m still amazed you have time to knit with your house filled with children. I feel like I can’t get squat done and I only have the one 😦 I know, I know, it’s not a competition. Perhaps I just have crappy time management skills?

  4. Kim says:

    That shawl! Oh my,but it is gorgeous and HOW did you get it knit up so quickly?? I always meant to cast on a second shawl, but am off shawls for now and ready for something different.I am sure my desire to work on a shawl will return though-it always does. 🙂
    I can’t believe you are doing another Flora–is this #3? That is crazy and aren’t you bored with it? I too love the colors of that tea cosy–would go beautifully in my kitchen! I hope to read further down at your past few posts to get caught up with you-I feel pretty out of touch with my blog friends these days!
    Have a lovely week-

    • Ruth says:

      You’ve been so super busy though and only I found you on facebook I’m at least still keeping up with you. I miss your blog but you’ve been so incredibly busy I can understand how you don’t have as much time. Hopefully all will settle soon xxx

    Congrats on all the pretty finishes Ruth.

    That is a really pretty cloth. I need to find some dishcloth cotton here in Brussels. The bowl is seriously cute too. The shawl looks really cozy… so pretty.

  7. What a gorgeous shawl! Does your darling model get to keep it?

    • Ruth says:

      No not this one I’m afraid, the shawls are my luxury item and only for me. They seem to end up being the only thing I get out of my knitting everything else appears to be for someone else lol.

  8. Lucy Bowen says:

    They are all so lovely – your colours and finishing are exquisite. I love the Flora’s and the shawl is gorgeous, modelled perfectly 🙂

  9. Well…you know I love your shawl! Good for you on your classes and your business! The tea cozy is going to be so pretty….again! The little holes in your new design remind me of seeds. Maybe next summer you could do it in watermelon colors. Just a thought since it does look like seeds to me. I love it! I wonder if I could get test knitters to finish my projects? LOL! How about test house cleaners? I could think of many more! I could REALLY use some test landscapers! LOL! I’m on a roll now! TTYL!

    The raspberry with white is a striking color combo, Ruth! Your shawl is fantastic. I feel like it is specially different from all the shawls being done out there. Hooray for you on designing dishcloths.

  11. Christine says:

    What a great week for you! That Soul Mate is amazing.

  12. sandy says:

    The shawl is awesome, love the colors. The cloth reminds me of one I made back when I was doing the cloth a month thing for my daughter, calendar cloths I think I called them. Wonder what pattern I used….must go back and look, might be fun to compare.

  13. Carolina22 says:

    Soul mate is gorgeous as is the model 🙂 Congrats on writing up a pattern!

  14. Soul mate turned out beautifully! And I love the colours in your raspberry and cream teacosy!
