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… Continue reading Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 15

Short and sweet update for this week. Stillness Shawl: I'm just over the 75% mark on this one - it's going to be huge. I have 3 rows left of the stockinette and eyelets band, and then one more section of easy lace to finish out the pattern. The rows are LONG now with 521… Continue reading Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 13

September Plans

I normally would have a WIP Wednesday post here but since I've knit a whopping 6 rounds on my Bronwyn sweater since I've been focusing on finishing up the Foss sweater (which is done - more on that on Friday!), I thought I'd outline my plans for September here. As we edge closer to fall,… Continue reading September Plans

The final skein… Continue reading Year of Projects Update – Week 8
