YoP I'm loving it
This week did not see a whole lot of progress but I did do something on my list that has been sitting in project bag for the past 2 years.
I did add to my stash this week.
So here is a look at the list again:
Year Of Projects 2012-2013
Use up all cotton yarn for dishcloths (should have 24-26 clothes when completed) (14 Done)
Complete 3 project bags (I have several bags labeled with the project they are to become)
Complete LaLa Shawl (In progress)
Complete Comfort Cancer ribbon shawl (In progress)
Complete Color Affection Shawl (In progress and so close to being done)
Frilly scarf (In progress but not happy with it)
2 blooming pillows (1/4 done)
Use up 1/2 of sock yarn (Oh my, this could take a while)
Did I hear someone ask about the color affection shawl? Well.....................I am on the finale part of it but...............................It takes me over 20 minutes just to do one row. Hence the reason it is taking forever to do the 2" of edging that is in the pattern. I think I have 3 rows of edging done at this point but it is going to take a bunch more than that to complete it. I do love the way it is turning out but please be patient with me. I will get it done but I just needed to work on something with a bit quicker gratification. (fingerless mitt)
I ordered DPN's this week in sock sizes 0-3. I think I am going to try my hand at doing socks on DPN's and see how I like it. I got them from Knit Picks and I got the 5" needles as the 7" ones I am using now keep poking me in the tummy. (stop laughing!)
This coming weekend we have a conference to go to. It is Friday evening through Sunday evening. This is one place I can take my crafts with me and work on them without being disturbed and no one cares. So I will probably be taking my cancer ribbon shawl with me as I should be able to complete that while there. If that gets completed then I will take dishcloths to work on since they are small and easy to carry. At least that is the plan right now.
Until next time...............................
PS: I want to thank all of you that have been leaving comments for me. I do read all of them and as some of you know I will reply via email if there are questions that need to be answered.
