YOP – Year 5 week 6

YOP 5a

This past week has been focused more on the design end. Lots going on in the background with drafting, charting and swatch knitting. The yarn I need for a sample knit of a new pattern has arrived, I’m now waiting on some beads and then that can be started.


Very little progress has been made this week on the second How I Make my Socks sock. It is now just past the cuff and a little into the leg. More progress should be made this week on that but it depends on how much down time I get and want in between designs.


My Yop list is looking something like this now;

    That kettle yarn is yummy….
    One of your future designs will have designs will have beads? Yikes!!! I have never done that before…
    I am anxiously waiting for your next design to test though 😉
    I have yarn for it and everything!!

  3. Lovely yarn! You must really enjoy designing. I found all that background stuff – charting, drafting and swatching – really got in the way of the stuff I enjoyed: KNITTING! LOL!

      I like the process, it can be quite methodical and very math centered and then I get to knit so I guess I’ve got the best of both ends.

    Love the colour of the kettle yarn, can’t wait to see what you make from it!

  5. Becki says:

    That yarn in the first pictures looks downright wonderful. And you’re adding beads? Can’t wait to see it worked up. As I wrote in my post this week, I’m just in awe over how one goes from conception to actually designing a knitted (or crocheted) project. I look forward to seeing later what you’re up to right now, Ruth.
