These YOP weeks are already starting to mount up!
This week has been busy. The early part of the week has been spent in a pattern writing daze. Having a mental block half way through didn’t help things but it’s been worked through and sorted, and now the first draft of the pattern has been written and sent off to my tech editor. I’m hoping to have it ready for test knitting in a couple of weeks.
Cosán Cowl is now live for sale here.
I finished up the Hulst socks you can see them and read my notes on them here.
I started a pair of How I Make my Socks. I’m as far as the heel on the first sock. These make great unwind TV knitting being just a plain stockinette sock. I’m undecided on the yarn though, I wasn’t too mad about it before I started and although it’s making what seems to be nice stripes, I don’t know about it. That is though why I opted for these socks just so I’d use this yarn and get it out of my stash. It was likely to languish there forever more if I didn’t use it! My project page for that is here.
I’ve also been making a few cloths as they were requested, those I’m not adding to my list as I make those all the time and the place would be over run again with them. I’ll pop in a picture here and there of them if I get a picture and if they’ve not been whipped away for use!
This week I will be continuing to work on the How I Make my Socks and I have to get some photo-shoot shots of the newest design, let’s hope the weather plays ball as it has turned very cool, windy and rainy here. I will also be spending quite some time in the design den (a whole den area where I can work!) on some secret for now and some not so secret projects!
