YOP – Year 5 week 25

YOP 5a

Just a quick short update this week. Not much to tell or show but let’s anyway.

The majority of the week was spent getting my newsletter “The Story” written up and sent out. It’s the only place that you get the behind the scenes look and low down on each design and how it came about along with the story behind the design as well. For anyone who may be interested you can sign up HERE on my website for next months.

I’ve been working away on the second sample in the new collection. It’s about half way done but I’m expecting to get a lot more done on it over the coming week.


That is the sum total of all knitting type work for the week. I did say there wasn’t a lot to it. The rest of the week was spent going to Christmas school plays some the children were in and some in support of the other children in the school who put them on. There was also a fair amount of running around finishing off a lot of Christmas shopping and now the last bit of wrapping needs to be done and apart from the food shop later this week, that’s it, I’m done! Are you all ready?

Oh yes now the list, how’s that looking, pretty much the same as last week but here it is, next week I’m going to be doing a review of how it is all going goal wise seeing as we will be halfway through this yop year.

    The sample looks fabulous – love that green. I think we are ready, did some baking today and made the crackers. Hope you and your family have a great Christmas.

    Your knitting is growing and looking so pretty in that green yarn. No, I’m not ready for Christmas, but it’s coming, ready or not! :^)
