So we are on our hols! We went to do a car boot yesterday morning and made a few pennies and a bit of space.
I have some progress this week.
I finished the tea cosy and it has gone to it's recipient.
I got totally over excited by the sheep and here are my first two! I love them - the first was the grey one. There were numerous mistakes with this one, not least the fact I cannot Kitchener stitch. I have avoided it with socks this far but now I may need to learn. They have no faces as yet, but they will soon. Daniel reckons the grey one is naked!
Not as yet, but I saw a bag on Instagram and decided I could make it. So I have bought some fabric to make me a bag and some PE bags for the boys, it should be with me soon so will show you next week.

Ok so I've had a little more time this week but I don't seem to have made much progress. I do have an FO though!
I finished Zinone - I do not have modelled shots as it is not blocked yet, but she is finished nonetheless.
I have turned the heel on Daniels Scooby Doo socks (Blueberry waffle pattern knit in Knitting Goddess)
I have nearly finished a second teacosy - I need this one for the end of the week as a present so I will work on this one later.
And finally (I will count this as a WIP even though I have not actually started knitting them yet) I have added to my list already but only as I forgot it. I saw this pattern a while ago but wasn't sure why I would knit it. I have now decided to knit loads and give them as presents. What am I talking about? sheep by Susan B Anderson is what I am talking about. I have a mass of 4 Ply that I am going to use to make them - a whole flock.
I have also cut out the fabric to make a mimi top which I will probably put together next week.
I have - shock - horror - no acquisitions this week.
I think that is it for this week. To see more progress in the group click the link on the right.

I will be posting this late this week as we are off on our first camp this weekend! If it is successful I will update in a midweek post.
I have nearly 3 weeks to update on this week, what with the round up and the list last week so here we go!
I have 3!
Firstly some more socks for Thomas - I decided to knit him some matching (to me) Arne and Carlos socks.
Zinone is coming along nicely.
I needed to have some easy sock knitting for our camping adventure, so I cast on a pair for Daniel and a pair for me. Both blueberry waffle on the left is mine colourway mathematical camel spit and on the right scooby doo - both by the Knitting Goddess.
I haven't had any acquisitions this week but thought I would show you some stitch markers I received
Just as an edit - our camp adventure was fantastic as you can see - I'm a bit tired now though!!

Even though every year I change it, I am going to stick to largely the same format as previous years. However, I have been following the wardrobe architect series with Colette sewing patterns.
