Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 21

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

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

Another short update for my YOP things this week. I've been working on a test knit and another non-YOP knit as well, so I'll have more on those for WIP Wednesday, but for now: I finished clue 1 and started clue 2 of the Stillness Shawl from Helen Stewart. This originally was a mystery shawl… Continue reading Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 10

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 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

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
