I have missed a few other blog posts this past week between one thing and another but I was determined not to miss an update at least for YOP. Progress has been made on projects and the size of progress well, that’s always relative I think to what is going on around us.
First project up is indeed my Herbarium jumper. It was finished during the week, ends woven in and it got blocked. It just made it off the blocking mats yesterday evening in time for today’s post. I love how it turned out. The size was exactly to what I’d gotten gauge to and I love the fit, the pattern and the colour. Definitely a winning project to my mind.
I’ve gotten the yarn and pattern together for my Grace cardigan by Jane Richmond. I decided to knit this next as it was what I had originally planned to knit next, way back when. I am hoping to swatch for this later today and hopefully at some stage this week to get a start made on it. The yarn I’m going to be using is Eden Cottage Yarns, Millburn 4ply in the Autumn Fields colour.
I’ve completed both legs of My Dearest Loveliest Elizabeth socks and have moved onto adding in the contrasting heel on one of them.
My Gráinne shawl has two more rows of the first lace section left to be completed before I switch back to the next garter section. As I was working the lace section I made a last minute decision to add beads to the first and last row of the lace sections only. This I’m hoping will give a line of colour between the sections, we shall see though as I progress through the shawl.
I did purchase this gorgeous skein of yarny goodness and it arrived on Friday morning. It is called Yellow Submarine and this is most definitely going to be socks! I think I may have a yellow sock addiction, hmmm.
And there you have it, short and quick and to the point. Work knitting took over with test knits beginning and other designs needing to be finished and started which ate a little into my personal knitting time but it goes like that at times. I’ve also been reading away, but I just didn’t get time to get a book report blog post done, on Wednesday, and as for stitching, well I’m hoping to get a second post of that up this coming Friday.
So that leaves us with just having to take a look at the list.
