This week I’ve been working steadily away on this new design. It’s been the main item to be worked on all week.
I have also worked on my Weasley Rib socks on and off this week when I’ve needed a quick project to pick up and put down. Because I’m knitting them concurrently they are both on the foot part. Heel flaps and heel turns have been completed along with the gussets on both. I don’t have a picture of those today, probably tomorrow on social media if you follow me, otherwise I’ll have one next Sunday.
It is a long weekend here in Ireland and this weekend I am concentrating on my Simones Wedding Shawl. I have three sections left and I want to get this off the needles and blocked and added to my shawl drawer for the autumn.
I did work up the swatch for my Herbarium. It took a couple of attempts but I finally made gauge so that will be cast on this week.
There has been some more yarn and yarny related purchases this week. Some haven’t arrived yet. In the last year I’ve purchased very little personal stash and yarn related items so I feel no guilt what so ever by the splurge of the last couple of weeks but I think we can safely say personal stash is now looking healthy 🙂 This particular skein came from Karena in Strand Designs, it was a new colourway she posted on Instagram and I nabbed it immediately. This one she called Peach Cobbler and it’s going to be my next pair of socks!
So there you have it for this week. I’m going to be pretty much working on the same items this coming week and I hope to have a couple of those items very near being cast off. If they were cast off by next Sunday that would be even better but we shall see.
