Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 13

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

Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 11

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.

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

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
