It has been awhile from my last yop update, in part due to not having much to show, in part due to starting a podcast and in part due to life just happening on a personal front.
I have made progress on my Vanilla Toe Up socks that I was knitting. I am loving how these are knitting up and I am really enjoying knitting the pattern, which is the sockmaticians toe up pattern.
I’ve also cast on a pair of Cobblestone Socks, the pattern is by Mina Philipps. These are back to being cuff down and I’m using this denim colour by Schoppel as a contrast for the cuffs, heels and toes.
My Herbarium has moved on a bit as well. I’m now nearly at the end of my increases. I am still really enjoying knitting this pattern and I’m planning lots more garments already.
I’ve not cast on any new shawls for myself. Mainly because that is what I am designing at the moment so when I’m not working I find both the socks and my jumper far more relaxing of a knit.
Speaking of designing, I’ve had a new release from I last blogged. Fionnuala was released on Ravelry and can be found HERE.
As I mentioned I’ve also been pod-casting! I know can you believe it! I’ve got two episodes and they can be found on You Tube on my Knitterarium Channel if you are interested. I’m glad I did them and I am enjoying doing it, even if I don’t look like it so much.
