I did wonder if I would have anything to report on this week. It’s been a busy week with lots of non-project, non-knitting, reading stitching kind of things being accomplished. It’s also the last week of holidays and the two weeks off work has been wonderful. I know being a designer is a pretty awesome job but it was lovely to kick back and not think about deadlines and notes and all the other many things that need thinking about. I’m behind on a few things work related that I know this coming week will have to be dealt with but the break was worth it. It’s re-charged my batteries and let’s just hope that next week I can get back into the swing of work mode.
But you are all here for a Year of Projects post so let’s get to that before I keep rambling on.
My Herbarium sweater made progress. I love this sweater even more, if that’s possible. The rib band is all that remains to be done on the second sleeve and then it just needs a neck band. Those will be completed this week and then comes the decision on what garment, on the list, to start next. At the moment I haven’t decided but hopefully by next weeks post I will have.
I’ve made some progress on the second leg of my My Dearest Loveliest Elizabeth socks. I didn’t make as much progress on these as I had wanted to this week, but after the busy week I’m just glad I made some. I love the colours for these and I really can’t wait to have these off the needles and able to wear them.
The last project I made progress on was my Gráinne shawl for the Go Your Own Way Shawl KAL that I’m running in my Knitterarium Ravelry group. I’m finished the first garter stitch part which I’m working in the Rambling Rose colourway and I’m about to introduce the second colour, Briar Rose, for the lace section. This is my weekend relaxing project for definite and I’m going to be kicking back later this evening and working on it.
So there you have it and now that just leaves me with showing you what my YOP list looks like.
