With it now into November here is a look at the October finishes.
Lots of small items finished in October along with two designs of mine that I had on the go. Ériu you already knew about and read about here but there in the middle you’ll spot Equinox which has some quick photos taken. It does need to be photographed up at the Equinox Stone it was inspired by but that will need to wait until I have the use of both my legs for the climb up.
Here is close up picture of Equinox and you can read about it here in yesterday’s post.
This last week I also finished off those dinky little tea light holders I made some of about a two months ago. Here are some pictures of those and my notes for the project are here.
Those were both of the finishes that I had this week.
Projects I worked on that moved a few steps closer to being finished were,
Elizabeth’s Miss Marple cardigan which now has one sleeve complete, considering I was aiming to get as far as starting a sleeve this past week this is good. It leaves one sleeve and the neck and button bands to do. If I pushed it I’m sure I could complete that this week, it’s all about whether I have that push or not this week, let’s see.
My notes so far on it can be found here.
I’ve also finished the centre parts of the squares I want for Caoimhe’s Blanket, The Lavender Blanket and have now moved on to adding on the next few rows to those squares. I have some plainer squares of a different pattern I want to add to this blanket so once I have the extra rows added to these centres I’ll do some of the plainer squares so I can aim for having both types of squares the same size once finished.
My notes on this can be read here.
My project notes for all this YOP year can be found and read here.
To read other blogs taking part or to take part yourself in YOP year (it’s never too late in the year to start) you can read all about it here.
Hopefully this week my article will go live and I’ll post about that here then including a link to where you can read the article. I’ll also show you the finished object pictures. I have been working away on the second article piece.
