For mid-term week I worked mainly on a new design. It was easy to memorise and I could take it up and leave it down when I needed to and in just this week I’ve the body of the shawl complete and under no real pressure. I think this may be a design I return to, to knit again and again. This coming week I aim to work on it’s border. It’s a busy week with lots going on each day so I am hoping to get some progress on that. This is a picture of where it was earlier in the week, looks nice and simple now doesn’t it but I wonder what could be hiding in those scrunched up folds?
I did, as predicted last week, finish off The Forest Moon of Endor socks and in time for Septembers challenge, really it wasn’t the pattern holding me back it was just me and my snails pace on these. I like the finished sock and working the fleegle heel was interesting, I kind of like the process of knitting a regular heel though even though I’d say the fleegle is easier.
I did start working on Fledermaus last Sunday after casting off the above socks. I really must get some more sock needles, of course that would just mean I could cast on more. Today I am working these so I hope to have progress today.
Streusel still didn’t make it to the blocking mats this week. I was making Christmas puddings. I think we shall aim for this one to be a surprise one of the weeks a “look what I blocked” kind of statement.
No progress made on any cloths but then it was mid-term, wonderful and relaxing and it’s back to normal tomorrow, wonder how long it is until the Christmas holidays?
So the list, let’s see how that is looking now;
