Year of Projects 2022: Week 30

This week, I finished up my lace shawl sample, Roses of Avon, which you can see here in Friday's FO post. So I've mostly worked on socks this week. I finished up a pair of River Rapids socks (a free pattern on Ravelry) and love how these knit up. I used a new-to-me yarn from… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 30

Year of Projects 2022: Week 26

Halfway through the year already! Here we are for week 26 of my Year of Projects. This week, I worked on: My Beach Walk Blanket. After working the 5 rounds of granny stripes, I realized I had done something wrong on the transition round between the small granny squares and the stripes because the rounds… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 26

This year is really flying by - I can't believe we are only 10 days out from the end of June! I think I'm on track for most of my yearly YOP goals, so let's talk about what I worked on this week, shall we? First up, I finished the DK-weight Battenberg blanket I've been… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 25

The purple is a well-marinated stash yarn of Madeline Tosh's Sock in "Logwood".

Year of Projects: Week 23

It was really nice to have a long weekend here in the US for Memorial Day. Both my DH and I had a pretty quiet weekend, but I think we're both back to 100% now, although our little town and the area where he works have been hit pretty hard by COVID these last couple… Continue reading Year of Projects: Week 23

Year of Projects 2022: Week 22

Another busy week here. I think I mentioned two weeks ago my DH and I were both struggling with an awful cold. Or what we thought was a cold. He has had a lot of business travel over the last 3 weeks, and it turned out almost half of the people at business location #2… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 22

I'm a day late for this week's check-in but whew! It's been a week! Happy to say that I finally have landed with a new job that should start mid-May. I'm working for the same company but no longer as an independent contractor which will make taxes SO much easier. Friday into Saturday was wild… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 17

Year of Projects 2022: Week 16

Only knitting and crochet projects to talk about this week. We've been enjoying our beautiful weather in the afternoons and working on putting in fencing for a garden/sitting area off our back deck. We have a LOT of deer here and with so little green, they tend to eat everything - including "non-deer-friendly" plants, so… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 16

Quite a few new projects to talk about this week but if you haven't seen it already, I finished my Break of Dawn shawl which you can read about in Friday's post here. I cast on for a test knit of Baroque Purls's Beanstalk Cowl. I'm using another skein from deep stash, which I think… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 15
