This week I’ve been focusing on a non-YOP piece (my Saligna sweater test knit) but did manage to get two of my YOP’s worked on. My DH also has found work travel has kicked back into high gear for him. He’s home this upcoming week but then gone for almost 2, including the weekend, so we spent almost all of yesterday cleaning out the garage and running errands. Definitely needed to be done and I am grateful for his help dragging stuff in and out but whew! it cuts into weekend crafting time!
Cozy Autumn Socks: I cast these on this past week and managed to get the heel turned on sock one. I love these in this pretty “Maple” colorway from Suburban Stitcher. I suspect I will have a fair amount of yardage leftover so this yarn might see a second life as a colorwork hat. Will continue working on these this week as time permits. (The color is a little washed out here. I’m up at dark o’clock this morning with another busy day so wanted to get a photo and post done!)
I also managed to finish up 2 oz of singles for my current BFL/silk roving spin. The colorway is Sirius from Funky Carolina. There’s definitely a darker braid and a lighter braid, which you can see from the singles. We’ll see how this looks all plied up but I think it’ll wind up being fine to use as a blended yarn.
That’s it for me today – have a great week YOP’ers!
