Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Yarn Along.

Just started to read The Little Stranger, and after one chapter, I am happy to say I am enjoying it Tialys, so thanks for the recommendation.

As for knitting, I have nearly finished the front of Baby J’s grey jumper. It probably was not a good idea to start a Christmas KAL with Deramores. Week one, make bunting. Two flags down, six to go. When will I learn, not to start so many things at one? Probably never.

What about you, are you well disciplined and only have one project on the go at a time? Have you planned any Christmas projects, if so how are they progressing?

  1. Christmas cards is my Christmas project! Guess I should start with the ones that need to go outside of Australia? Cheers,H

  2. Currently stands at x12 UFOs – I don’t count projects I have but are not started…. eek!

  3. Us crafty types always have several WIPs, don’t we? It’s what keeps us motivated, hopping from one project to another. Taking on a KAL this close to Christmas is just another mad thing we do…..

  4. Variety is the spice of life! With my recent finishes I think I’m down to six active projects and a BOM due to start after Christmas, that’ll be three BOM’s on the go! Just need to squeeze in some dress-making now 🙂

  5. One project at a time, that would be me, IF you count one garment, one appliqué, one cross stitch, one piecing project, one quilting to finish, one knitting, one blanket block, one pair of socks…….😂

    Love the bunting and I actually quite like the grey for baby’s sweater – it’s a nice light colour.
    I’m currently re-reading “A Fly in the Ointment” by Anne Fine. Keep an eye open for it at the Library, it really is a must.

    • I have read Anne Fine before but not that one, I must keep an eye out for her books you are right.
      I am so glad that so far no-one has said they only do one thing at once. I am hoping I can get some nice bright buttons which will enhance the grey.

  7. What’s undisciplined about having lots of projects if that’s what you want to do! But seriously although I technically have only a knitted jumper and a crochet blanket actually in progress at this precise minute, I am about to start (before I finish the above) a pair of socks and a crochet hook case for Christmas presents and have several others waiting in the wings so to speak.

    • At last count I had fifteen yarny projects- yarn bought with pattern and not started!. I have a jumper and a cushion and the bunting on the go, three cross stitches started and a special request for my grand daughter and that’s not counting the sewing projects and the fabric stash. I am currently unsubscribing to lots of companies with their special offers! I love all of them though!

  8. Between knitting and sewing I have 6 projects on the go! I am not counting the umpteen small quilts I need to quilt!!

  9. I don’t think it’s undisciplined to have more than one project going! To me, it seems a way to get more done–when I am worn out with working on one project, on any given day, I can move to another and find new energy!

  10. Moi, disciplined? Some mistake, surely… Let’s see: Colours of Happiness quilt, Go Teal it on the Mountain quilt, Hatbox quilt, pastel ScrapHappy quilt; Days for Girls scrappy quilt, Trudy Memorial quilt, Tigers quilt, F2F3 blocks to make…. Oh, I might as well stop there, it’s going to get boring, and I haven’t even started with the dressmaking or hand stitching. Love the knitted bunting, so cheery and cosy-looking.

  11. Disciplined? You must be joking 😸
    I’m glad you’re enjoying the book so far – it’s a slow burner but worth it I think. I’m wondering what the film is like – looking at the cast list, nobody looks as I imagined they would from the descriptions in the book but that’s showbiz for you I guess.

    • Oh good so that’s three of us so far who can’t stick to one thing at a time.
      I love a slow burner book that lets you get to know the characters and form opinions and care what happens to them.
      No-one in films seems to look as you imagine. To begin with they all sound American, apart from the baddie who will be British. Why don’t American actors like playing the villain?
      Then you have to have the big name star, usually male, and usually far too old for the role.
      The female roles will be taking by women who are far too pretty and too young, unless of course they can get a Brit to play the older woman role. Do I sound a tad cynical?

  12. Not just any old bunting! That looks lovely … and also it looks quite time consuming. It made me smile to see how you were cheering up the grey of the jumper with some brights on top of it!
    Me? Disciplined? Pah! I have a grasshopper mind and WIPs aplenty.
    No Christmas projects for me as this year is my year off! ( i only ‘do’ Christmas every other year)

    • It is currently taking about 2 1/2 hours per flag on account of messing up and frogging! And tomorrow the next instalment comes out. Humph! But yes it does stop me getting downhearted by the grey.
