YOP – Year 4


This is the last weeks post for YOP -Year 4 as next week will be round up week and it will be accounting for the year that was.

This past week though I had been attempting to knit some Danu Fingerless Gloves so I’d have them for stock for a fair at Christmas (I know I did say that didn’t I! eeek). Quite frankly they should have been finished within a day or two, they really are that quick but mid week became busy and practically no knitting time was done until Friday evening.

I just had the thumb to knit which I finished up last night and I immediately cast on another pair in another size. The ribbing on this second pair is now done, see they are quick when you just get the time. I don’t have a picture of the new pair but here is the other pair, minus the thumb.

I was also organising a test knit in my group which is currently running for the next couple of weeks here.

This week along with working on the second pair of gloves, I’m casting on these Hulst socks which are part of a KAL in the Blue Peninsula group. I’m using this lovely Butterscotch colourway from West Yorkshire Spinners.


This project will run into YOP -Year 5 so will also become part of it.

For anyone wanting to join in with the YOP Year which is beginning again at the start of July please do check out our group here.

    Good to see you here. That is a sunny yellow. The sock pattern has great lace detailing.

      It does and it’s looking great now that I’m a couple of rounds into it. This yellow is going to be like wearing the sun on my feet 🙂
