For the early part of this week it has mostly been about blog posting.
With every evening having been taken up with different things actual work on projects didn’t begin until Wednesday. I had lots to do but this week just seemed to have been running away from me.
I decided to concentrate on finishing off the smaller Danu size and the second glove seemed to be a two step forward three step back kind of glove. It easily could have been finished by Thursday but instead took until early yesterday evening…ah well it’s done now and for someone like me who needs the small size they fit well … like a glove (excuse the pun but they do!)
So with only finishing those off I was left with the decision on what to cast on next yesterday evening, I opted for working with this blue and orange
to tweak an older design of mine as I figured with it being late in the day I might stand a better chance with it than swatching up this yarn for Banbha the last shawl. I intend to do that today.
The blue and orange project (I’m not going to say what its name is just yet, it has actually been decided whew!) I expect to be finished Monday sometime
so that will leave either Banbha being cast on, if the swatch works out, and being the sole project or I may attempt to use this last bit of yarn to knit another pair of Danu, it might be a bit of yarn chicken going on and I’m not sure I’m up to that with this yarn this week and I’m still quite enjoying concentrating on one sole project at a time.
My project page is relatively up to date and all notes so far can be read here.
