This week has been the week of steady progress on projects. Nothing new has been cast on, a few new designs have been sketched out and it has just been about steadily working away on what is on the needles. So let’s take a look at the progress.
The leg of my first Pebble Sock is done with the second started. This was done mainly last Sunday evening when I wanted a break from my Herbarium. This also made it into the car for school pick up knitting. Our schools were back at various points this past week and socks are just the perfect project to have when waiting in the school car parks.
My Herbarium has made progress as well. I am really enjoying this knit, the pattern is great but the yarn is really wonderful to work with, I really love it!. At the moment this is a weekend only knit project as the work week is full of projects and I would really want to work on this all the time.
Work wise this week, it has all been about making good steady progress on this blue project. I’ve not touched the brown one as much this week, possibly because it just needs knitting, the pattern has been drafted but there were options with the blue that I wanted to work through first before drafting. This week is likely to be more a balanced week on both projects.
One acquisition this week has been this gorgeous project bag I’ve had my eye on for a while. I got it from Craft House Magic on Etsy, Ellie is based in the UK and she makes the most wonderful bags, they have this gorgeous quilted feel and have free form stitch on them. The bag pictured with the blue project above is also one from Ellie. I think these ones are my favourite of all my project bags and I have quite the collection going on!
Look at those gorgeous DPN cosys as well. I think they need a new pair of socks cast on in them! I might have to get on that this week. I’ve not cast on a new personal shawl just yet as I’m still in two minds as to what one to cast on. I have two new shawl designs of my own on the needles and I’m not sure what I want to knit shawl wise for my personal stash just yet. Any recommendations? What are your favourite shawls?
