The vast majority of the week was spent working on two projects.
The first was Simones Wedding Shawl, I’m on the last lace section of this and have a small garter stripe border to do and then it’s done. I will be aiming to have this off the needles this week. Of course I’m eager to get this off the needles due to recent yarny purchases but more about that in a bit.
My working week was spent making a good sizeable chunk of progress on this one, as is evident by the ever decreasing ball of yarn, there is a second ball to be added in for this one. I’m really enjoying the knitting time spent on this design.
Yesterday I took a trip to Dublin with my eldest. He turns 16 tomorrow and wanted to go to the city. I took my sock project, the Weasley Rib socks, with me for the train journey and made great progress. Both socks are now ready for toe decreases so I expect these to also be off the needles this week.
Yarn parcels this week have mainly been for work, these first three are for designs.
There was one personal bit of stash enhancement and it happens to be this Little Bobbins project bag that I was lucky to get in Dani’s last shop update. I love the simplicity of this look, it’s my favourite of all.
This coming week is going to be about getting Simones Wedding Shawl and the Weasley Rib socks off the needles. Work wise I will still be working away on the green item but hopefully with some cast offs I can start another new design or two that I have in mind. I will also aim to start another personal project, otherwise updates would be very boring.
