YOP – Year 4 week 24


This yop week I’ve been concentrating on finishing up projects that have been started.

I had a blog post about Sean Bláthanna here during the week for anyone who missed it.

Elizabeth’s Westlynn Wrap has been finished, it just needs some buttons sewing on. The project page for that can be found here. This was knit in a warm spice colour but it’s hard to capture inside. I’m hoping to get better pictures of the girls in them at Christmas.

I’ve been working on this months article piece as well but pictures of that to follow later in the month.

I’ve also started Caoimhe’s Westlynn Wrap. The project page for that can be found here. This is the last xmas present I have to knit and should really only take another day or two. She chose a dark eggplant purple for her wrap which again seems to be hard to capture indoors colour wise.

I have been designing and tweaking other designs as well this week so that once the gifts are done and the article piece is wrapped up I can concentrate on them.

My project page for this yop year is up to date and can be found here.

    What gorgeous colours… I really like the egg plant purple. I know what you mean about photo’s not doing justice to the item…the days are so grey at the moment and lack the clarity of light. However, that said your photo’s look just fine x

  3. Gracey says:

    They look very pretty…..I’m sure the girls will love them..can’t wait to see them on…

  4. Just ducked over to Rav to check out the pattern page for the Westlynn Wrap – what a lovely pattern. The girls are gonna look just adorable in them!
