Only two weeks remaining for yop posts! Can you believe how quick that year has gone! Those in the YOP group who run Jun-Jul are gearing up lists for the 6th year of YOP projects. Those on the Jan-Dec are already half way through their year! If you want to know more or think this is something you’d like to try, check out the Ravelry group here for further information.
This week it’s been busy. My eldest has started his first official state exams in school so much of the week was taken up with that. He’s got this week with various exams through out it and one exam the following week. This has dipped into a lot of not only knitting time but design work so I’ve kept the projects to a minimum.
An hour or so last Sunday finished off my first Sprinkles Sundae Socks. I love this slightly shorter length, and can see how this one will work for lots of wear. The second sock got cast on last night, so if you’re following me on Instagram I’m sure you’ll probably see pictures there, over the coming week of it.
I also worked some on my Fíorghrá scarf as part of my Fíorghrá KAL, only two weeks left for that also! When I’m after just some sit and knit time, this is what I tend to pick up. I’m about half way, first side is done and I’ve to pick up stitches for the second side now.
Design wise I’ve been working on a couple of things but most of the time it’s been on this sample. I love the simple knit that is just so relaxing. I have to keep reminding myself to take notes to confirm what the draft pattern is saying! This is the third design in the Summer Memories Collection.
When not knitting, or working on designs, I’ve been thinking of next years list. I’ve had a rough idea of what I wanted to complete this coming year and mentally have been laying it out into a workable list. This will be my 6th year to take part in the YOP so anywhere from mid May I tend to be thinking about the next list and looking at the present list to see what goals still remain. I love the friendly encouraging atmosphere from the group.
Speaking of lists.
Let’s have a look.
