YOP – Year 4 week 10


This week has been a week of settling back into school routines and getting used to everyday whizzing past in a flurry of activity. Some days this week when I blinked I think I may have missed something so getting some time in the evenings to work on a project has been wonderfully relaxing.

The first project worked on this week was Eole for Evelyn. It is now off the needles and just requires blocking which will happen later today and some buttons with the ends sewn in. It will be ready for the Autumn this week if I make it to my LYS this week.

I’ve also been working on the Rainbow Corners Blanket, I’m not decreasing on both sides so I’m expecting this last bit to come together quite quickly. This I am hoping to be finished by next weekend.

I’ve been steadily working away on Ériu this week and the secret project but as I can’t show you anything yet lets not dwell on those.

My project page on Ravelry is update with notes and pictures of all wips and can be found here and if you want to read other blogs participating in the yop year or to join in you can find the group here.

    The Eole is gorgeous, I love the colours. And the rainbow blanket is fabulous (like the rest!) it will be lovely and cheerful on a winter day/evening.

    Lovely c2c rainbow blanket… Those colours just make me smile 😊

  3. mmmyc6 says:

    Love love love Eole! And I am so very impressed by the c2c rainbow blanket 😉

  4. Mrs P says:

    WOW love the rainbow blanket 🙂

  5. Wow the rainbow blanket looks great! So bright! I’d be afraid to go to a LYS for buttons – as likely as not I’d come home with yarn instead 🙂

  6. Renee Anne says:

    The blanket is making me want to learn to crochet properly……but not enough to concentrate on it (too many other things happening) 🙂

  7. Kepanie says:

    I love the construction of the blanket. It makes hooking it more interesting, rather than going back and forth over and over again. I love how you’ve put a matching border to the heathered body.

  8. Oh, Ruth, the sweater turned out lovely and I can’t wait to see the buttons you choose for it. Of course, I can’t wait to see the finished item on her too. I am nuts over that blanket…too cute and it looks like a fun project. You’re doing so well on your list and I am reminded I need to update mine. It is a busy time of year especially for you with the family going back to school and getting all the supplies etc. Busy and expensive I imagine. I’ll try to get over during the week. I have to put your blog in my list….I need reminders constantly! LOL! Enjoy your week.

    • Ruth says:

      I’ve put all those I need to visit on bloglovin so I have a reminder of course that just doesn’t quite solve the problem of having time to check in on bloglovin but at least they are there in one place 🙂

  9. Marsha says:

    Both of your projects are fantastic. The sweater is so sweet and I just know you will find the perfect buttons for it. The C2C is so bright and cheerful. It will brighten up any gloomy day. I too use bloglovin. It is the best thing I have done in a long time. I can get to my most visited blogs so quickly that way.

    Great projects! I’m really getting into this blog-a-long , it’s cool to see how all the various projects grow with time 🙂

  11. Iris says:

    Lovely update. Both Eole and the Rainbow Corners Blanket look beautiful!

  12. Jenny says:

    I love the cardigan, purple is my favourite colour.
