2022: Wk of 7/31-8/6; An FO and WIPs Update

RANUNCULUS

Everything I read about this being a fun, fast knit has turned out to be true. I can’t believe how fast I’m flying through this tee. Size 10 needles with only 164 stitches per row on the body makes for a quick knit. I definitely see more of these as Christmas gifts!!๐ŸŽ…. I just love this yarn. I have enough leftover for a second one especially if I use some leftover brown sock yarn I have for the neck and cuffs. Or maybe the patterned yoke?? This is a great 1 skein pattern!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

But I have a big question….I didn’t bring my interchangable needle set so I don’t have the next size smaller to use in the ribbed bottom. I started with the size 10. Now the sweater is on hold till I get back home and get my smaller needles. Do you think I can just switch or should I rip out the rows of ribbing I’ve already done? I think I’ll be ripping back as I just remembered I forgot to do the knits as knit through the back loop.๐Ÿ˜ฃ

DRAGONFLY SOCKS

Making good progress on my socks especially since my Ranunculus is in time out. I’ve had this yarn in my stash for several years so I’m glad to be finally using it. Especially since I have a green Amrum Sweater and will be knitting a green Love Note.

YOGA SOCKS

Another FO!!! I’m happy with my scrappy yoga socks. What’s not to like, no toes or heels! Really cleaned out my Fixation scraps!

BEACH VACATION

Weather at the beach has been wonderful. Got to go to the caterer tasting for their daughter’s September wedding. It was fun. That is going to be such a fun week. Got to focus on losing weight when I get back home because the wedding week will be a high indulgence week!!

Morning Coffee

Hope you have a wonderful week of crafting. 

This is a year of projects (YOP12) update. YOP is a Ravelry Group โ€“ 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 started itโ€™s 12th year in July and Iโ€™m starting my third year in the group. Iโ€™ve been knitting for five years.

  1. Lovely progress on Ranunculus. Iโ€™m quite lazy and so Iโ€™d probably leave the ribbing as it is, but it would annoy me. I never seem to learn that it is less stressful to correct things at the timeโ€ฆ so maybe donโ€™t do what Iโ€™d do ๐Ÿ˜‚

  2. The yoga socks are lovely – I wear mine all the time (doing yoga that is!) Your Ranunculus looks fab and I suspect you have decided and finished by now, but I would rip back.

  3. I’m behind on reading, personally I’d leave the ribbing as I think it looks fine, but you may have already changed it. I regularly forget to change needles on ribbing. Socks cope fine without a change so I’m not too fussed on jumpers either.
