My new project bag and interchangeable needle holder arrived, from Rachel Green Crafts (on Etsy), with a little free gift of a notions pouch with some different types of stitch marker including a cute little sheep. Really well made and cute fabrics, so I’d buy again and recommend.
I had this post ready to schedule for publishing and then realised I’d forgotten I’d done some felting this week!
I know it shocked me too! I’ve done 2 landscape lightshade pieces but, as I’m saving photo space, I’ll show them next week when I’ve needlefelted some sheep and constructed them. I’ll do some seascape ones this week. The shop sold my last 3 remaining ones in March so I need to get back to making them regularly for the tourist season.
On Saturday I went to my first ‘in person’ Guild meeting for over 2 years. I had offered to demonstrate a blending board so showed how you can make rolags or a batt on the board. I was pretty shattered by 1pm so left early, but I’m glad I went. Here’s the batt and rolags I demonstrated . The rest of the time I was making rolags for a spinning project I started years ago! I’ll talk about that another time when I am back spinning it!
I’m so obsessed with knitting the Nightshift shawl. I’m still making mistakes and still not caring, I really love how it looks and the process of knitting it. So many different bits of my handspun are getting used up, I really am loving the project and will be sad when it’s finished. My progress keeper shows where I was last Sunday!
I also have done a tiny bit of knitting on my Ship Shape jumper. My gauge is off but I think I will be able to knit the size up without any issues as there’s only 2 stitches difference in the sizes at this stage. Of course I may not have enough yarn, but this is a summer top so could have shorter sleeves if I run out.
I finally did some spinning! It’s a Suri alpaca / superfine merino blend top that I hand dyed earlier this YOP year.
I’ve moved my gardening posts to a separate blog and my travel posts to another one. This is mostly down to me running out of space on this site and I wanted to keep it as crafting. If I do any posts on the other sites then I will provide links to them in this section of Sunday’s YOP posts and then if you are interested you can follow the links.
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.
