UFO updates

As promised here are the photo updates on the UFO's. The above picture shows where I have come across to the left of the canvas and started on the main water section. I've also filled in a lot of the "missing" stitches in this section on the right. The dark brown stitching was also done this week. I think this week I'll be concentrating on the water and trying to bring it up to the same level as the rocks.
With the cross stitch, it has been green all the way. Several shades of green in fact. The stem has grown upwards, the right leaf is almost complete and a new leaf has started on the left. This was quite hard to get going again because of the closeness of the colours, but I am beginning to get into this now. It may even become a work in progress if I can get to finish some of these jumpers finished and off the needles. Talking of jumpers, I am happy to say that I completed knitting the back of D's jumper. He was quite pleased when he came home and saw what I had done.
I've even gone quite a way on the first sleeve too. I may even manage to complete this one this week. Weyhey!

Good progress on your WIP's. Like the idea you mentioned of doing one threads worth. Looking forward to seeing another knitting finish. :0)
