Year of Projects 2022: Week 39

If you caught my FO Friday post, you'll know I finished up the Brighton socks and Terrain scarf, so I don't have much on the needles right now for knitting. I am working on the plain vanilla sock in fall colors here and there. I'm using Fiber Stash Dyeworks Twinkle Toes sock yarn in the… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 39

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

First up this week are my pair of finished self-striping, plain vanilla socks. Yarn is from Desert Vista Dyeworks in the 'Monkey Wrench' colorway. I used a leftover bit of plain black for the Fish Lips Kiss heels in this otherwise simple pair. The yarn base is one I generally have almost a half skein… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 34

I've been focusing on some things around the house this week. For the first time in the 13+ years we've lived here, we've had an actual monsoon-type summer which means that all the weeds which have been waiting patiently in the ground have really taken off. Which means weeding. Not a favorite activity but we've… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 32

I've been enjoying reading all the end-of-year posts for those YOP'ers who are working the July year-start. One of my favorite parts of this group is seeing all of your plans - keep 'em coming 🙂 This week, here's what I've worked on: Roses of Avon shawl: I have the main body pattern of floral… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 28

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

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

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

Year of Projects 2022: Week 15

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
