Well again not much knitting time and I have been monogamous on my Advent shawl. Last week I was just starting on Rubix Cube…I’m starting to think I mislabelled them…anyway we are getting some blues now. Mr Frosty (I had one of these and loved it, you made shaved ice and put syrup on), My Little Pony and I have started Magna Doodle. Then I have 3 colours left and I can get it blocked…not sure that will be this week.
The ladies at my Guild have been absolute stars, so my plan to do a breed project is going ahead. I have a total of 26 breeds of sheep either in my stash or being offered up by some of the members and will be spinning 25g of each and then crocheting a square of each and then sewing them together to make a breed blanket.
On Ravelry I found a lady in Florida who is doing the exact same thing so that was spooky! We are going to keep in touch and she has made a template of the notes she plans to keep about each breed and has offered to share her template with me. She is using merino as a test for assessing how thick a yarn and how much 25g will make and that’s my plan to. This is a long term project and I see it going on throughout the whole year and possibly beyond.
On Friday I warped my 10″ loom ready for the Diamond Stripe towels I am making during Kelly Casanova’s Weavealong. Here’s a snap after one repeat.
I am now just over half way through towel #1 and the 2nd towel will use either white or red weft (horizontal lines) with the dark blue warp (vertical lines). My sides are still a bit messy but a lot will be sorted once they’ve been washed and tumble dried.
This week decluttering moved into the kitchen, well it did for me as I was ahead. After a couple of days I got distracted by the baking drawer and made Chelsea buns so I still have quite a bit of the kitchen left to do.
On last Sunday’s post I had complained about my husband not liking to get rid of things, but he read my post and voluntarily started to clear out ripped and old clothes he doesn’t wear any more. So I was really happy.
That’s filled my week really!
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.
