Happy New Year readers!
I hope 2021 brings you health and happiness.
I had paused knitting my ADVENTuresome Wrap on the 9th December to finish my 2nd Turtle Dove jumper. I finished my jumper on Christmas Eve and didn’t really knit anything for a few days until I picked up day 10 of the wrap on the 29th. Since then I have added some extra sections (10 Teletubbies, 11 Monchichi Monkey, 12 Tracy Island and 13 Ninja Turtles). Next up is 14 Batmobile which is also green?!? And then finally I move away from the greens. Furbie is still like a beacon it is so bright!
I want to start a project with some handspun baby camel and silk that I spun last year. I can’t decide on a pattern so will just continue with my shawl until I find one or pick up another project from my YOP list.
I haven’t spun it yet, but look at the yummy yak and silk fibre that I bought with some of my Christmas money. I haven’t done any spinning for months so this will be lovely to spin during Guild and spin group Zoom calls.
I take our decorations down on the 2nd January so don’t really follow the 12 Days of Christmas, so I started opening 2 little fibre parcels a day and finished opening my 12 days of fibre on New Year’s Day.
Spoiler warning: If by a slim chance you are reading this and bought or were gifted the same box from Adelaide Walker you maybe don’t want to see the photos at the bottom as it will have some fibre you haven’t seen yet.
I have a long term plan of doing a breed project. I will spin a small amount of lots of different breeds and then either crochet or knit some squares. So this has some new to me breeds that will go towards that; Dorset Horn, Masham, Manx Loaghtan and Teeswater. In my head I am thinking it would be nice to have the breed name readable so maybe I will embroider the breeds on as I don’t think they will be big enough to knit the names on.
My husband got himself an Oculus (Virtual reality headset thingy) for Christmas and there is one game on that which doesn’t give me motion sickness…so that’s why there’s not been much knitting! I have switched ‘just one more row’ to ‘just one more go’.
I’ve seen a lot of friends in Blogville posting their intentions, plans, aspirations, word of the year etc. for 2021. I would like to definitely weave and spin more and fix some things around the house. I’m doing a virtual walk around Iceland’s Ring Road and starting a big declutter on the 4th January, so that’s enough to focus on for the next few months.
This is a Year of Projects post. Officially the Group is in its 10th year, but this is my 3rd year participating. If you would like to find more about the Year of Projects Group on Ravelry.
