No finished objects this week but progress updates and pictures instead.
Firstly Hills of Home blanket has had 5 more rows added to it completing the first large stripe I’m adding to it, well I’m making it up as I go so we shall see what happens next.
Drops of Firelight shawl has progressed also to 6 rows short of Chart B completion. It is growing nicely now and I’m still in love with it as much as ever, I can’t wait to finish and block it to open it all out.
Flanders Poppies now sees 18 of the intended 48 squares done. The centres for 6 more are already done. This is a close up of an individual square.
The other thing I’ve been at this week with the children back at school is spinning. This is a Corriedale top that I’m spinning and my main aim is to get a thin yarn or at least as thin as possible. This I suspect will be a dk weight which is fine, it means I am getting there and with some more practice and a lighter spindle which I’m getting made it should all help. I’m going to keep spinning this top and try keeping it even which I don’t think I’m doing a bad job of at the moment and then I shall set it and knit something up with it. How exciting is that!
Those are the projects worked on this week and are the projects lined up for this coming week to work on.
I have also been working on a design for a cross stitch piece for my parents upcoming wedding anniversary but I will do a separate post on that tomorrow if you want to check back and see it.
