This week I’ve blocked my new design and photographed it. It has been tech edited and is now in the process of being test knitted in my group here.
I am currently swatching for my next design and I’m just in the process of tweaking and adapting some of the patterns I want to use.
I did complete Streusel last Sunday but it is only going onto the blocking mats today so photos of that will come next week.
I only managed to get knitting on the Forest Moon of Endor last night, this was where I was at the start of the evening, I’m now ready to start the heel increases, once that is out of the way it is straight stockinette knitting to the end so I’m expecting to get a good chunk of that done this week. I have until the end of Oct to finish this sock for it to still count for the challenge.
I’ve checked out Novembers challenge for the SKA and I’m not too crazy about that challenge so once I cast on Fledermaus before the end of Oct I can work on it and again once it’s done before the end of November it will count for the October challenge and I can skip the challenge in November that I don’t want to do. I have decided to knit Fledermaus in this solid purple, I have a few solids but am reluctant to use them all at once or I will simply never use all those self striping yarns that are in my stash, but I have them when I think the pattern really warrants one and Fledermaus does.
So the list, let’s see how that is looking now;
