I’m a day late in getting this yop post in but a post is a post is a post.
This week has been busy and it has all been about The Éire Collection.
Those who received last months newsletter “The Story” will have gotten the heads up.
The first part Banbha is currently being test knitted and released for sale at the end of the month.
I finished off Fodhla, which is the second part, during the week and all going well it should be blocked today or tomorrow at the latest.
The third and final part of the collection, Ériu, has been cast on and progress is currently being made on this.
I keep hopping from one to the other as to which is my favourite! At first I thought oh I love Banbha and then I knit up Fodhla and changed my mind and now I’m on Ériu I’m now thinking “oh no I was wrong this is my favourite” I guess I just love the whole collection! 🙂
That really is the sum total of my week and this week doesnt look much different. I need to finish working on some charts for Fodhla and write her up and send her to my tech editor, then she can be tested. I will be continuing to work on Ériu and taking a bajillion notes as I go along. I dare not say “I won’t write that down because I will remember” I never do!
Oh what I do have new to work on this week is a crochet blanket for a cousin of mine. A rather large one and I need to go hunting for colours, no particular colour was requested just multi coloured so I need to do a stash dive for that and see what mixture I come up with. I’m still trying to decide on whether to work it as a C2C, stripes or to do squares and join them up, decisions, decisions. Please do weigh in here fellow crocheters!
