Year of Projects 2022: Week 26

Halfway through the year already! Here we are for week 26 of my Year of Projects. This week, I worked on: My Beach Walk Blanket. After working the 5 rounds of granny stripes, I realized I had done something wrong on the transition round between the small granny squares and the stripes because the rounds… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 26

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

Here's what I've been up to this week: More progress on two different pairs of socks. Both are designs by Helen Stewart over at Curious Handmade. The purple is a well-marinated stash yarn of Madeline Tosh's Sock in "Logwood". This is sock 2 of the Scribbly Gum Socks pair and I just turned the heel.… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 24

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

Year of Projects 2022: Week 22

Another busy week here. I think I mentioned two weeks ago my DH and I were both struggling with an awful cold. Or what we thought was a cold. He has had a lot of business travel over the last 3 weeks, and it turned out almost half of the people at business location #2… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 22

It has been a week here for sure. The fire that is about 10 miles to the west of us is now over 37,000 acres and the county moved us to the middle phase of evacuation prep. We are in a small suburb south of town proper and if the winds yesterday continue as they… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 19

This week has mostly been about trying to get my Misurina Tee finished up. It's been a focus piece when I've had some knitting time in the evenings and I'm happy to report that I finished this one up! I've actually got it on today and it's the perfect weight for our sunny but breezy… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 18

I'm a day late for this week's check-in but whew! It's been a week! Happy to say that I finally have landed with a new job that should start mid-May. I'm working for the same company but no longer as an independent contractor which will make taxes SO much easier. Friday into Saturday was wild… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 17

Only knitting and crochet projects to talk about this week. We've been enjoying our beautiful weather in the afternoons and working on putting in fencing for a garden/sitting area off our back deck. We have a LOT of deer here and with so little green, they tend to eat everything - including "non-deer-friendly" plants, so… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 16

A bit late on this week's post as we were traveling for a mini vacation this weekend (a travel post coming shortly), but here's what I worked on this week: I cast on for the Break of Dawn shawl from Woolenberry. I have a lot (A LOT!) of single random skeins of beautiful fingering-weight yarns,… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 14
