Year of Projects Update: Week 9

A short and sweet update from me this week as we turn from August into September mid-week.

Foss Sweater: Finished! I posted about that on Friday if you’re interested in seeing some pictures. I think this one is going to get a lot of wear this fall.

Stillness Shawl: After I posted my update last week, I realized I wasn’t really happy with the two speckled lighter yarns competing with each other, so I ripped this back to the dark purple section, pulled out a skein of silvery-gray (nicely enough also from A Homespun House which is where the purple speckle I’m keeping in this project is also from), and reknit. So I’m not really any further along than I was in last week’s update, but I’m just about back to where I was and ready to move forward in the pattern. It’s still a really subtle contrast with the gray and the light purple speckle, but I like it better.

Nothing else to report on, as my DH and I decided to take a short road trip before Labor Day so we’ve been enjoying Colorado again this weekend. More YOPs to go on the needles once we’re back and September kicks off this week.

  1. Colorado is a state I’ve always wanted to visit, but haven’t made it there yet. My spouse says its beautiful and he wouldn’t mind retiring out there (in 25 years).

    I like the subtle contrast, it will be very beautiful when completed!

    1. You’ll have to put it on the bucket list then; it’s a beautiful state. It’s gotten so much busier since we moved out here 12 years ago. The amount of traffic on the back roads is astounding (nothing like the Beltway or much of the east coast, granted… but a lot compared to what we’re used to out here.)

  2. I love those yarns together…it’s going to be gorgeous when you’re done but what fun working on it too. I lvoe Colorado but I’m afraid of heights so not a good mix. I hope you have a wonderful time!
