Year of Projects 2022: Week 49

We’re back from a busy travel week to and from the east coast for a few days on Chincoteague Island to enjoy the ocean (albeit a very cold and windy ocean) and spend the Thanksgiving holiday here in the US with my parents. We had a great time at both and enjoyed some long walks and cozy visits with my folks. On to the projects then, shall we?

I finished up my Vintage Fairy Lights socks. The pattern is by Helen Stewart of Curious Handmade, and the yarn is Spun Right Round’s Classic Sock in the “Hocus Pocus” colorway. (And yes, those pops of lemon-lime are really that bright!). This is my second go-round with this design and I love how it knits up and how it fits, so I’m glad to have these to add to my sock drawer collection.

I’ve also been working on my Evening Dew Cardigan, designed by Ririko. This is a boxy-fit open-front cardigan with dropped shoulders and a simple inverted pinecone motif. I’m knitting mine using one strand of Swoon Fibers KidMoh Lace held with Ex Libris Fibers Anais (a silk/merino single), and this is making for a super warm and very fluffy fabric. I have the front and back done past the armholes and have joined all those stitches to work back and forth. I’ve got about 5″ below the armholes knit and the total length is 13-1/2″ so I’m not quite at the halfway mark. I’ll be focusing on this over the next few days until December 1st arrives when I’ll be switching my focus to work on my advent project/miniskein box.

That’s it for this week. I’ll be back at some point over the next few days to talk about my plans for 2023!

    1. Thanks, Marsha! I’m planning on making a big cozy blanket with my advent skeins this year. I was kind of sad that I had leftovers from last year’s box – I wanted to use every last yard of the yarn, so I thought a blanket might be a good solution.

  1. Love the socks! That sweater does look very soft! When I was young I loved the books about the ponies of Chingoteague Island. Plans for 2023? Already? Where has this year gone?
