Running a bit behind this week while taking advantage of our 3-day weekend here in the States, but here's my update for the week. I started and finished Vanessa Smith's Stars Hollow hat using a skein of DK-weight handspun. The original roving was from Funky Carolina (a BFL wool) and dyed in the colorway Eowyn.… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 36

Mostly socks to talk about this week, and I'm a bit behind for my Sunday post, so let's jump right in, shall we? I have been motoring along on the self-striping Monkey Wrench socks, with yarn from Desert Vista Dyeworks. I've finished sock #1 and started sock #2. I'm using some leftover jet black yarn… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 33

I've been enjoying reading all the end-of-year posts for those YOP'ers who are working the July year-start.

Here's what I've been up to this week: More progress on two different pairs of socks. Both are designs by Helen Stewart over at Curious Handmade. The purple is a well-marinated stash yarn of Madeline Tosh's Sock in "Logwood". This is sock 2 of the Scribbly Gum Socks pair and I just turned the heel.… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 24

Another craft-filled week - my DH was on business travel again (and he's gone again this week) - so I got a lot accomplished. First up, I finished the big cowl I was working on. This is a design from Joji Locatelli from a while back and I had earmarked 3 half-skeins of Spud and… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 21

This week has mostly been about trying to get my Misurina Tee finished up. It's been a focus piece when I've had some knitting time in the evenings and I'm happy to report that I finished this one up! I've actually got it on today and it's the perfect weight for our sunny but breezy… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 18

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

Year of Projects: Week 4

This week, I'm working on a new spinning project. I have a lot of handcarded batts in stash and I decided that I would tackle a set of those next. These are from KCKnits on Etsy (although I think her store is permanently closed) and the colorway, Princezna Hyacinta, is inspired by an Alphonse Mucha… Continue reading Year of Projects: Week 4
