Year of Projects 2022: Week 41

We had a lovely weekend away in Colorado last week, so no YOP update post from me, although I did get a lot of knitting done! I finished up a not-quite-matching hat/scarf set. The scarf is the Malabrigo Waffles Scarf (a free pattern on Ravelry). The hat is the Dots and Lines hat by Lete's… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 41

Year of Projects – December 26, 2021

Happy holidays to everyone, whichever holiday you celebrate! Here's my final YOP 2021 post to close out the year. Not much to report as I've been working almost exclusively on my Dust of Snow advent miniskein project. (Happy to report it's done and blocked but I need to get some photos of it and am… Continue reading Year of Projects – December 26, 2021

Checking in for YOP without much to report other than some planning and life stuff, so if that doesn't interest you, have a great week - otherwise, read on! No progress on any of my specific YOP projects. I've got the Sonoran shawl still on the needles, the December wool applique mug rug partially done… Continue reading Year of Projects: December 17, 2021

Year of Projects Update: December 5, 2021

This week I've mostly been working on my Sonoran shawl project while I've been focused on some advent box knitting. I'm happy to report that I've reached the halfway point in this large project. The center lace (in dark green) is a fairly wide section. The remainder of the other patterning/yarn color changes will mirror… Continue reading Year of Projects Update: December 5, 2021

I finished up the October Hat (Ravelry link) this week, which also meant I used up all of the Carodan Farms worsted weight in this color from stash! I think this rustic neutral works great with the cables. I did work less rounds of the ribbing than the pattern calls for as I was light… Continue reading Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 21

This week, I finished up the first bobbin of singles for the 8-oz spin I've been working on slowly. I have 3 more oz of singles to spin on bobbin #2 and I'll start that this week. (You might remember I spun a 2-oz sample skein of this roving, so I've got the remaining 6… Continue reading Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 20

Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 18

Just a few small things to update this week. I've been kind of under the weather and between that and the kitchen remodel, not a lot of time to focus on projects. I did cast on a hat project to use the remaining few hundred yarns of a Carodan Farm Shop worsted-weight I had in… Continue reading Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 18

First up, this week, I'm happy to say I finished up my Cozy Autumn Socks (Ravelry link). Pattern is from This Handmade Life and I enjoyed knitting these a lot. A nice mix of some interesting bits and some easy rounds, so nothing too complicated. The yarn is Suburban Stitcher's Sock in the color "Maple".… Continue reading Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 17

Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 16

This week, I continued work on my Cozy Autumn Socks. Sock #1 is done and I've knit the leg and started the heel flap on sock #2. I'm really enjoying working on these and absolutely LOVE the Maple colorway from Suburban Stitcher. Hoping to get these finished up this week! I also plied up my… Continue reading Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 16
