A project round-up

*Singing* Ding dong merrily on high... oh hello! Nice to see you today, come on in and grab a mince pie. This is probably my last WIP Wednesday of the year so it's time for a little round up and a delve into the project basket to see what's there!

The little knitting I did at the weekend was on my Chele Cardigan. I'm onto the body now after lengthening the sleeves to compensate for the architectural yarn, and hopefully there will be time to get on with this over Christmas as it's an easy knit - at least until the main section (sleeve-body-sleeve in one piece) is done. 

Then there's the Leisa Loop which I haven't touched for ages but is so soft and lovely, I really must! 
And of course the Beekeeper's Quilt which will probably take until next Christmas! 120 'puffs and counting...

In addition, I appear to have "hidden" the Sitting Room Circle Throw (which has been unintentionally abandoned), a birdy decoration and an almost-finished pair of crochet slippers, but I forgot about all of those until I'd finished taking pics! Yikes - quite a lot to keep me out of trouble! On that note, I'm going to go and make a plan for tackling them all. 

Before I go, I'd like to wish everyone visiting, and especially those from Tami's Amis who I may not "see" again this year, a VERY happy Christmas and massive thank you for your visits and lovely comments this year. It's been an absolute pleasure to get to meet you all and I'm really looking forward to seeing your projects in 2012 too! So from me...

Of course, I'll still be blogging over the festive period, and I'd love for you to visit before the new year (you are welcome to subscribe to stay up to date with any posts in the meantime) although I won't promise you lots of knitty updates in the next few weeks. 

Oh and one last thing - you may have already seen it if you follow CFTC on Facebook or Twitter, but here's a peek at something else in progress - an image re-vamp which will be taking place for the new year.  

We are all looking forward to carols and MORE mince pies at the school this evening (please send us some fine weather vibes as it's outdoors!) and after that, it really will be Christmas, won't it!?

Sending much love and wishes for lots of crafty goodness your way,

    I'm really intrigued by your cardigan. I've come across top-down and bottom-up constructions, as well as the kind that you make in pieces, but wrist-across is new to me. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out!

  13. That Leisa loop looks beyond amazing, I wish my computer screen had touch-o-vision so I could squish it! (Beautiful colour and stitch texture, too.)

  14. Chele is looking gorgeous, but then all your projects look lovely.

    I do hope your evening has been better weather wise than ours which has now started on the lightening!

    Thank you Emma, I love your patterns - I think this is the 4th or 5th I've made now. They are always fun to make!

  18. Lovely pile of WIPs! I'm still in awe of your puff count, which is putting mine to shame. They offer terrific inspiration though! Merry Christmas to you and yours,as well!
