Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 15

This week I've been focusing on a non-YOP piece (my Saligna sweater test knit) but did manage to get two of my YOP's worked on. My DH also has found work travel has kicked back into high gear for him. He's home this upcoming week but then gone for almost 2, including the weekend, so… Continue reading Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 15

This week, I finished up the Stillness Shawl I was working on. (You can pop over to Friday's post here to see more details.) Happy to have that larger project done and off the needles so I'm now working on.... A new spin.

Short and sweet update for this week. Stillness Shawl: I'm just over the 75% mark on this one - it's going to be huge. I have 3 rows left of the stockinette and eyelets band, and then one more section of easy lace to finish out the pattern. The rows are LONG now with 521… Continue reading Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 13

I started and finished Kacey Herlihy's Fallen Cowl this week. I really like her designs. They aren't terribly difficult but they have nice details in them. I've knit a cowl pattern of hers and now this lace cowl in a worsted weight, and have several other designs of hers queued up. I used 275 yards… Continue reading Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 11

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 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
