This week has been a very productive week with great visible chunks of progress made on projects.
The first Forest Moon of Endor sock is complete with the second about to be cast on.
I want this pair done as I’ve already been thinking of the October sock for the SKA October challenge. I’ve gotten it down to between Leonore and Fledermaus. I’m trying to decide which of my yarns might not swallow up either pattern. I really wish I was near the end of all this variegated/self striping sock yarn that I have. But before I can think about casting on a second pair of socks what I must first do is finish up either the second Forest Moon of Endor sock or else finish up;
Streusel, which is now on the decreases and hopefully I will make good progress with those over the course of today. Last week I did complete all the increases but I did have 66 g of yarn left and I wanted to use all of this skein in the shawl so instead of increasing further I continued on without any further increases until I had 42g of yarn left, this should be enough to finish off the decrease section of the shawl with a few g’s to spare…it sounds good in theory doesn’t it but as to whether it shall work out like that, well stay tuned!
I’ve made great progress with the new sample knit of a design I’ve been doing this week. The pattern is now ready to be drafted from the notes I’ve been taking and charts made. I’ve a bit of swatching to do this week and a new design is finishing up its test knit and will be coming out this week.
I also got one further cloth made this week on the school runs.
So the list, let’s see how that is looking now;
