Sailormoon Continues to Grow
My second Sailormoon sweater continues to grow. I’ve made good progress on the body. Only 2 more sets of stripes before I start the lace bottom. Maybe today while watching football!!?? It is such a pleasure to knit. I will definitely get it done this month!
Advent 2019 Socks – Or how many mistakes can you make in one stripe!
I added 2 more stripes to my Advent 2019 socks. I’m not knitting them in the order of the pattern but picking and choosing stripes that I like. I basically knit the holly stripe twice. Mistake #1 – got cocky and thought I knew the pattern. Uh no, not always 3 green stitches followed by 2 white. Frog two rows. Mistake #2 – happily finished stripe when, huh – why does my ivy look like propeller blades instead of ivy?? Seems I turned the pattern upside down halfway through knitting it!! Frogged back to the red berries and reknit the upper leaves. The gold centers of poinsettia stripe didn’t show up well so I’m going to duplicate stitch them. Two more stripes and then time for the heel.
I continue to make slow progress on my second tumbler cozy. No rush on this project. Berroco Fixation yarn is perfect for these cozies, 98% cotton and 2% spandex.
Autumn ’21 Update
Continues to be summerlike in SW Ohio. We are 5C/10F above normal and will be for the next week. Great for hubby’s bladder pain issues. Not much color change in the trees although lots more leaves on the driveway!! I’ve already cleared the leaves earlier this week too! Got to have a lovely get together with my dad and brother’s family at a nano brewery where they all live. Roasted pumpkin porter – YUM!! It was so nice to enjoy being together. Wishing you a wonderful autumn week.
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 each 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 11th year. It’s my second in the group.
