YOP- Year4 week 27


I’ve spent this week working on Fódhla. I’ve not felt the need to chop and change projects at least for now anyway. I am now at the stage of adding on the border and it is over half way added on. I am expecting it to be cast off this week. It may or may not make it to the blocking mats but considering I picked it up just a week ago to work on it I’m quite happy with that. Of course I’m not going to give a full glory shot, that will have to wait for its reveal but here is a teaser.



When I’ve not been knitting I have been getting two designs I worked on over the Christmas period ready for printing up so I can work on the samples of them. These are some new yarns I took delivery of just before Christmas, they are destined for these samples.

I’ve also been working on the numbers for a design for this yarn. Most of the time I seem to be working on maths and numbers which is odd as I much prefer working with words than with numbers but you can’t design in words now can you? haha

    Can’t wait to see your latest design in its full glory as I know it’s steeped in Irish history.

    Look at you! A quite proper designer. 🙂 I love the teaser picture and really want to see more! Your comment on my blog about your brother following our Seahawks made me laugh. I always feel like the rest of the world pretty much ignores our American football. Our team is pretty darn exciting to watch right now though…. I did love Downton last night–do you watch that series too?

    • Ruth says:

      He’s into all kinds of sports and last year when you all made the Superbowl is when I realised he’d been watching you all along and I hear him talking about your team again this year. It makes me smile to think about it really. Yes I watch Downton but we have to wait now for the next series.
