Year of Projects update 9th December

I've not really made much reportable progress on my current YoP projects, but what I have been doing is picking out patterns for the rest of the yarn on my list! I've been wearing my Phannie hat a lot recently, and have decided I need more hats in a similar style.

My gorgeous pink Knit Picks Capretta is now waiting to become an Ishbel beret and an Ishbel shawl. I was given a copy of Whimsical Little Knits by Ysolda Teague ages ago and have been meaning to make Ishbel ever since. I think I have enough yarn to make both, although the shawl will be more of a shawlette. I'm going to knit the beret first, then knit the shawl until I run out of yarn.

This colourful Skein Queen Squash is destined to become a Crest of the Wave Baktus, as I think the pattern will suit the crazy colouring of this yarn.

Finally, the Artesano 100% Alpaca will be perfect for two of the three Old Maiden Aunt: At Midnight club patterns. They are not currently available to purchase as individual patterns, but should be in the new year. I think I have enough of this yarn to make Baskerville and Baker Street. Depending on how they go, I may get more of the yarn and make the third pattern, Serpentine Avenue as well.

There are still other yarns which need patterns choosing, but I think I've got enough to be getting on with! I have a few non-list Christmas projects to get through in the next couple of weeks, so I doubt I will get much done from the list between now and the end of December.


  1. Foul temptress! I don't need to be adding anything to my Ravelry queue right now (I just finalized my second year of projects list).

    ::sigh:: Oh well :)

    Yes my next couple of weeks are also last minute Christmas things. Here's hoping we both knit up those must-knits at breath-taking speed :)

  3. I love all the variants on the Baktus pattern; I think yours will be lovely with all those colors.

  4. Such yarn yumminess! I think that yarn is perfect for that Batkus and will be so cheer to knit with in the dead of winter. My update will be up later--for now I am just visiting around. :)

  5. Lovely yarns and great choices! Can't wait to see them... !!!!

  6. I love the Queen Squash. I can't wait to see it knit up.

  7. These are all awesome patterns. I love their interesting names! You are definitely a tam addict!

  8. Having made Baskerville I can heartily recommend it, it's a great pattern.
