Well, I didn’t make as much progress as I had hoped on my Sailormoon so I’m still working on the body. 😝 My son had a light week of school work so he wanted to play a board game every afternoon. I am only too happy to get to spend time with him as I know those days are numbered. I’m think I will need to add some more stripes before making the lace bottom. I’ll be trying it on later today to see. Plus spring always means lots of yardwork so I didn’t get to knit as much as I’d like.
I did work a little on my anklets where I’m using up the yarn from my sample knit sock. This is my social knitting project so it’s moving pretty slowly. I did try taking it to the grocery while my husband did most of the grocery shopping. Plus I got a few rows in on the drive to and from the grocery.
MORE BIRTHDAY YARN
I follow the blog for AGirlAndHerWool so she mentioned her business has been off to a slow start this year. I had seen several colorways that I really liked so I decided my birthday last week was a good excuse to order some from her. The colors are just as pretty as I had imagined from the photos. I’m going to make a striped pair of socks with her Smoke Paprika and Orange Sorbet yarns. Then I’m going to pair a grey/blue mini from my advent calendar as the toe/heel contrast yarn with her SeaSalt yarn. It’s not like I don’t have at least 10 other yarns that need to be knit up in socks!! Oh well.
Last week I shared that I was not real thrilled with how bland my circular needle holder was. A friend commented on how beautiful Roxanne Richardson’s circular needle holder was in her office update podcast. This inspired me that all I needed to do was cover my needle holder with some pretty fabric. Then recut out the slots for the needles to go through. I’m much happier with my “rainbow bright” needle holder.
Well, that was my week. Looking forward to hubby and I getting our second and final vaccine shot this week. Fingers crossed the second dose does not make me sick. We were invited by friends to go to Gatlinburg this week but just felt we had tried so hard to get our shots that we didn’t want to delay the second shot even if we were able. It’s going to be super cold this week so it will be a great knitting weather, and too cold for gardening. 😁👍
This is a year of projects (YOP) update. YOP is a Ravelry Group – make a plan for the year ahead for all your fiber activities, then update your blog every week. Plans can be calendar year (like mine) or mid-year start (like many). Following the plan is optional and creates some of the fun of posts. YOP is in it’s 10th year although I’m in my first in the group.
