This has been a mentally draining week and I thought about skipping this week’s YOP post, but I did make some fairies so I’ll share those and I finally made a decision on a long term WIP.
(I realised I numbered last week’s post with the wrong week number, which I’ve now corrected, sorry if this threw off any of the other YOPpers.)
I “dressed” some of the fairy bodies, but didn’t complete as many as hoped. Sorry about the poor lighting photos taken before bed on Saturday.
I re-printed the Cabriolet brioche scarf pattern on single side paper and looked at it everyday but I didn’t knit on it until Saturday afternoon. I started this project 2 years ago. I kept watching YouTube clips at the start of each row to remind myself how to do it, but…
I made a mistake that seemed impossible to work down to fix without making it worse. I thought I’d leave it and just carry on, then was about to make the same mistake again and got in a real mess trying to prevent the same error. I realised two-colour flat brioche definitely isn’t for me and the project has been frogged. Frogging brioche is a challenge in itself. The dark yarn is merino/silk and the pale is merino/yak, so both too good to waste on a project I’m not loving.
The kitchen isn’t finished yet, but hopefully will be next week. There’s an issue with the flooring and a socket but I won’t go into it. I have almost moved all the furniture back to where it should be and some new locations for things.
The sunroom is finished. I like how clutter free it is, my husband asked if that’s all the furniture going in…it used to be quite cluttered before. It’s so nice to have it useable in winter.
Switching around my Billy bookcases (from IKEA) I now have one with mostly glass shelves in the lounge and the other with all solid shelves with books and pictures, which is now in the hallway. The lighting is a Phillips Hue strip just dangling down, it’s effective though to light the glass and pottery on the top shelves and some of my Minions on the bottom shelves. I LOVE being able to just see them when watching TV.
Have a good week and hopefully I’ll have a finished kitchen post to publish before next Sunday.
This is a Year of Projects post. Officially the Group is in its 11th year, but this is my 4th year participating. If you would like to find more about the Year of Projects Group on Ravelry. Year 11 list.
