Year of Projects 2021: Week 6

Still chugging along on several bigger YOP pieces but here's my weekly update on progress for them. Foss Sweater: I managed to get the front and back divided and worked the short-row shaping for the shoulders on the front. I did all of that in the evenings while my DH was enthralled with a TV… Continue reading Year of Projects 2021: Week 6

FO Friday: City Lights Shawl

I've got a finished item to share for this first Friday in August (whoops! Almost typed July! Where is this year zooming off to?). This is the City Lights Shawl, pattern by Tetiana Ortruda (Ravelry link). I used Miss Babs Yummy Sock in Blackbird and Spun Right Round's SW Sock in Blender for the 2… Continue reading FO Friday: City Lights Shawl

Year of Projects – Week 4

This week, I finished spinning the first of the 2 bobbins of singles for the current 4-oz braid I'm working on. This is the 75/25 mixed BFL/silk braid from Pigeonroof Studios in the "Dovecote" colorway. I've really been loving these soft grayish-teals right now! I've already started bobbin 2, but here's the first half of… Continue reading Year of Projects – Week 4

FO Friday: July 16, 2021

Two finished things to share this Friday. It sure felt good to get a few more things crossed off my Year of Projects list. Frostwork Scarf: This pattern (Ravelry link) is another great one from Susanna IC. The pattern comes with instructions for a scarf and a blanket (or really large shawl), but I felt… Continue reading FO Friday: July 16, 2021

Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 2 Update

A quick note to start today's update post that I've created a separate "checklist" page for all the projects for the year here. It'll help me be able to find them and if you're popping in late, hopefully will help keep you from having to search for the master list. So what have I been… Continue reading Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 2 Update

Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 1 Update

Off to a good start, although a bit misleading since I did start the Lightweight Hipster scarf (Ravelry link) before July 1 as I wanted to use it for another challenge's project. It's actually completely finished and blocked - I did the last bits on July 1 to turn in as a finished piece for… Continue reading Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 1 Update

WIP Wednesday – June 29, 2021

I'm winding down several projects as the month of June winds down as well. It's been a good feeling to get a few of the straggler projects finished up to start July and the Year of Projects with a (mostly) clean slate. Lightweight Hipster Scarf/Shawl. Pattern is by Joji Locatelli and it's a great single-skein… Continue reading WIP Wednesday – June 29, 2021

Update – Year of Projects: 2021-2022

I've been enjoying reading the blog posts of the Year of Project participants who are finishing up (or doing a mid-year check-in post) for the 2020-2021 year. I hadn't really considered adding anything other than knitting projects, but having seen so many other interesting crafts highlighted, I think I'm going to add to my goals… Continue reading Update – Year of Projects: 2021-2022
