If you only tune in on Sunday’s for my YOP post, yesterday was my 10th anniversary of having this blog! I did a small post about it yesterday and another earlier in the week about what I’m watching and listening to.
My garment projects always stall when I come to splitting for the arms. I have no faith that any pattern will fit my arms and when I put the arm stitches on waste cotton I lose even more confidence. So as is normal I have gone off pattern and added 2 extra stitches under each arm. I’m not even sure that’s enough and with this chain yarn I really don’t want to have to frog a section.
I’m on the foot of my socks now so they are mindless knitting now which is great for zoom calls.
I managed to spin quite a bit of BFL and seacell. It’s going to be 3 ply and hopefully will be ok to have a go at knitting some handspun yarn socks. They may end up being sofa/bed socks rather than out and about socks, as there’s no nylon and they’ll be handwash only.
On the day I was going to warp my 32″ loom I put a Kelly Casanova weaving school video and randomly chose one on Tapestry weaving. Before I knew it I had warped a 3.5″ tiny frame and was giving it a go! The light isn’t great on the photo and the warp ends are a bit messy but it was just a first attempt.
Other things I’ve been up to this week are some pruning in the garden, washing plant pots ready for seed planting and trying to limit my time on social media.
Next Sunday is the end of the 3rd Quarter of our official YOP year!!!
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.
