More of the same this week – I’m still working on a bunch of larger projects so nothing new and shiny but here’s my current progress:
My Foss sweater has been completed up to the underarms and divided to work the front and back. Since I didn’t get it finished for August, I don’t have any real focus goal on it and I’ll just work on it as I have time and interest with an eye towards finishing it up for the fall.
The City Lights shawl continues onward. The safety pin is the end of the second repeat of the pattern. I’m 99% sure I added in some extra garter stitch rows where the bright/neon-y yarn shows as a larger block by mistake but I’m okay with that. I think it breaks up the rest of the striping nicely and I’ve repeateda similar extra-row section closer to the bottom to balance it out. I will definitely have enough yarn to get through at least half of a third repeat and possibly another full one, although the rows are getting LONG now. The pattern is written with benchmark points where you can stop repeats if you’re coming up short on yarn which is a nice feature.
Finally, the Dovecote fiber spin is chugging along. It’s been a crazy week here at the house between work and trying to get some outdoor clean-up done AND continue moving forward on our kitchen remodel so I haven’t gotten as much spun up as I’d like, but I’ll take any progress on this one at this point.
Finally, I started working on the stitching down the next RV camper motif on my wool applique project, but it doesn’t look much different than the last update I showed it, so no image for that although I have worked on a wee bit.
Another busy week ahead. We’ve got family coming into town to visit over next weekend and in the meantime, we’re trying to get the kitchen painting done so we can be ready to go when our countertops are replaced sometime in the next month or so.
