Hello again. It is time for a YoP update. I am a bit disappointed. I still do not have any FO's this week. I wanted at least one of my projects to be done.
Anyway.........I got my new needles in and immediately set to getting the shawl done. The shawl had other ideas. Evidently, I cannot count while watching TV and talking to hubby. I managed to do 14 rows before I noticed the lace was not lining up. I ended up frogging it 4 times before I finally learned to be quiet and chant the pattern repeats as I knit along. So here is where I am at.
I have re-knit the 14 rows I frogged. I don't know if I will complete it this week or not but will give it a try. I only have 19 more rows of lace and then the picot bind off.
I worked on hubby's socks a bit too this week but again..................they are not finished.
They need another 2 inches before I begin the toe. I might be playing yarn chicken this time. I made the leg extra long for him so he could wear these in his boots.
I don't know how many of you follow my blog other than through the YOP group. So I am going to show you the yarn that just happened to accompany my needles.
My favorite non-wool yarn, self striping showed up. Diversity is lovely to work with and it is a memory yarn. It doesn't pill or even need blocking after washing and drying in the machine!
I am still making project bags for friends and family. They are being well received.
I will leave you with this photo.
My girl Luna. She loves our new security screen door. She can lay on HER sofa and look outside and protect us from the evil leaves that blow across our yard.
Until next time..............happy crafting!!!!!
