YOP projects have been moving along slowly this week. With other claims on my time everyday this past week, squeezing in time for projects has been challenging.
What I did do is finish up the new project I was working on last week. I just haven’t had time to get in some photographs of it but hopefully this coming week I will, it most likely won’t happen before Saturday though. For now here is a sneak peek.
I blocked out my Danu gloves that I showed you last week. They fit perfectly but when not being worn they didn’t lie nice and flat showing off their design and the blocking really just helps with all of that. I would love to find some mitten blockers much like the sock blockers that you can find for sale. Has anyone seen any?
Having received some commissions in I’ve been working on those but really only in the latter part of the week and in between grabbing some moments for some ideas floating about in my head. Progress has been made but probably not as much as what should have happened. I’m hoping this week might be better for progress.
I did also do the swatch for the next shawl Banbha (ban-ba) and it’s ready to start but again the time to just hasn’t arrived.
My project page is relatively up to date and all notes so far can be read here.
