YOP – year 7, week 7

YOP 7 banner 2

Small amounts of progress have been made this week on personal projects mainly in part because I was very single minded about two work projects this week, so I didn’t play hooky from work this week.

I did though make progress on Grace and I’m still loving every moment of working on her. She is so relaxing and that’s on the pattern part. Once this part is done it is plain stockinette for the rest of the cardigan. I did forget to put a progress marker on the project so I could see what progress was made in the past week but this is where Grace is at this week.

I made a small amount of progress on the last toe up sock of my Wildflower Honey sock pattern. As I said with work ended knitting with deadlines I moved this to my sock knitting rota so I could complete it. I’m ready to move on into the foot of the sock now.

Gráinne has seen progress also on the second lace section and is a little bit further on than this photo also as I worked on it late last night. I love how this merino and silk yarn from Eden Cottage Yarns feels and I can’t wait to be able to wear it.

    Your Grace is looking quite lovely………….like all your shawl do. I like the color choices of you Grainne shawl too. I am envious of the sock knitting. I have been quite tempted to pull mine out just for a ‘bit’. I haven’t though. I also miss working on the Grainne like I had been. 1.5 hours a week is not enough time for me to get much done on her…………..she has grown quite a bit LOL

      Thank you Marsha, I love relaxing to some sock knitting and they are such a great portable project I think that’s why they are so tempting. I hope you get back to your Gráinne and socks and I’m sure once your log cabin blanket are done you will.

  3. What lovely projects and yarns! Your toe up sock is so perfectly knitted…it’s lovely to behold!

      Thank you Rain, I am looking at the list weekly and thinking that I’ve not gotten a lot crossed off so thank you for the different perspective 🙂

  5. Renee Anne says:

    Your photos are so much nicer than mine. I’m too lazy. Or, rather, I’m too busy. No, lazy was right….I’m lazy.

  6. You are really ticking through your list. Well done. I love Grace – such a beautiful pattern and you have picked the perfect pattern.

    Reading your descriptions of your projects and the yarns you’re using makes me want to cuddle up in them. 🙂
