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

Year of Projects Update – Week 8

First up for this week, I'm delighted to say I finished spinning the mixed BFL/silk roving from Pigeon Roof Studios I had on my wheel. The original roving was a 75/25 blend in the colorway "Dovecote". I'm spinning this as part of a larger sweater-lot mash-up all in these gray-ish teal colors. The final skein… Continue reading Year of Projects Update – Week 8

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

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

WIP Wednesday – July 7, 2021

Not just a Work in Progress Wednesday, but more like a What I'm...... Wednesday. I'm in the midst of several larger knitting, spinning and reading projects, so I thought I'd do a mid-week summary, just to document. Knitting: About a third done the Frostwork Scarf. I'm trying to do a repeat or two a day… Continue reading WIP Wednesday – July 7, 2021

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
