Happy Friday… It’s A Catch Up Post Today!

What a week !  Work was crazy busy but I did manage to work on my sweater and I started a mystery stitch along hosted by Hands On Design. This morning I have been enjoying coffee and A Lovely Yarns Vlogmas, I love Amber, she always has such beautiful projects on her needles and it’s awesome to see where she lives. I also watched the Crazy Sock Lady’s Vlogmas, which is fun to watch and I love seeing her sock projects.  Do you have a favorite knitter, quilter or stitcher that you like to watch?

My Sweater is slowly but surely coming along and I have made decent progress on the body.  Right now it’s mindless knitting, which is perfect for work and TV time at night. I am hoping to finish the body soon so I can get the sleeves done.

On a whim I decided to join the The Cookie Exchange mystery stitch along by Hands on Design.  I didn’t have time to order all the goodies that goes with this SAL, or the time to buy the floss, but that’s ok as I’m using floss from my stash. Clue two came today and it will be fun to stitch during work today.

I just need to finish the sprinkles and Clue 1 will be finished!

I am so excited about the bags I bought from Olivia of This Handmade Life. I bought her large bag which is just perfect for my sweater knitting, plus a small bag for sock knitting or smaller projects.

Olivia also has a new sock design that is available on Etsy and Ravelry
It’s currently on sale and so perfect for Christmas!

Last is a new yarn acquisition from Old Wire Road Fiber Company, Christmas At Hogwarts, a special addition that I pre-ordered in November.

I’m so glad today is Friday and hoping that it will not be near as busy as it was the last few days.  Hope your day goes good and that you enjoy doing what you live today!


What have you been working on this week ?

  1. Your sweater is moving right along. Those bags are really cute. I like the drawstring design. No zippers to snag your yarn when pulling it. The xstitch is going to be so cute. How many clues are there? That sock pattern screams Christmas. I sure wish it would get cold enough here to start wearing socks all day instead of just the early morning. Your new yarn is fantastic. Even without looking at the co l Ordway I just knew it had to be Harry Potter inspired. I am still working on my Vixynn sweater.

  2. The sweater is looking great. You'll be on sleeves in no time! I haven't started watching yet, but a number of podcasters I follow are doing Vlogmas videos, and I love getting peeks into their everyday lives.

  3. Marsha I so agree about draw string bags, especially when working on larger projects. There are three clues total for the mystery SAL, so it should be finished by early next week, or at least I hope I have it finished by then😆 I’m wearing my handknit socks, and all day long. For me the weather is perfect for them. Isn’t that yarn yummy, I love it ! You will be finished soon with your sweater and then have something new to work on.

  5. Mary, the mystery stitch along is fun and they have been around for a while. I don’t do too many but will from certain designers. I miss the knitting podcasts too!!! Everyone seemed to stop all at the same time too. I know a few have moved over to YouTube for video podcasts but it’s not the same.
