Another short update for my YOP things this week. I’ve been working on a test knit and another non-YOP knit as well, so I’ll have more on those for WIP Wednesday, but for now:
I finished clue 1 and started clue 2 of the Stillness Shawl from Helen Stewart. This originally was a mystery shawl but it’s been out long enough I have all the clues. This is 25% of the shawl knit and I’ve finished the second band of stripes and am working on the solid-color lace.
I think this one is going to wind up being too big to photograph well until it’s done. It’s already not great to photograph and it’s going to be a VERY generous shawl when it’s done.
I also worked on my Vintage RV Camper wool applique project. I am this close to being done with all the stitching and embroidery and ready to put the backing on but I am 2 red buttons short for one of the tree’s decorations. I emailed a local friend to see if she might have a couple but if not, I’ll have to order some. Kind of frustrating to be so close to the finish line but have to put this one down for a bit.
That’s it for current/active projects off the list. I will be casting on a cowl later today for a new project of the YOP list since I need a few small/quick things for my HP group classes for the month, so more on that next week. I hope everyone here in the States has a good Labor Day holiday if you’re lucky enough to have that off of work.
