Howdy everyone. Welcome to my weekly update on my craft projects. There are no finishes this week, I am sorry to say. Hopefully I will get the two projects, I am working on, completed by the end of this Year of Projects. Here is the progress I did make this week.
Ahhhhh, the sweater is coming along nicely. I am almost done with the second skein of the dark green. The weight of this sweater is quite substantial since it is knit in 100% cotton. Yet, I do not think it will be too warm to wear this summer. I will need to wear a camisole under it since it has quite an open weave to it. I will be on the lookout for a moisture wicking cami. Hmmmmm, wonder if UnderArmour makes one.
Then this happened this week.
Yup, a puzzle got started and completed. I haven't done one in quite a while and really enjoyed this.
There has been some stash enhancement also.
Another skein of Scheepjes Whirl. This is a colorway I have been wanting for quite a while. It was back ordered since last year. When WEBS had their anniversary sale last month, I saw it was back in stock so I grabbed a skein. This will be a shawl for me again.
I bought a different sock yarn too.
Say hello to CoBaSi. It is a cotton, bamboo, silk blend with elastic nylon in it too. It is supposed to be a cool and comfy non wool sock yarn. I noticed the cushiony feel of it as soon as I grabbed it. I am looking forward to making some socks with this.
That sums up my crafting week. I will be busy today getting things in order for hubby to head out tomorrow for Las Vegas. He has a BIG meeting with healthcare officials in regards to his mom going home from her skilled care nursing unit. We do not think it is the best for her physically yet, we can not keep her against her will. She wants nothing more than to go home and live the rest of her days there. She just turned 92! She has been totally miserable for the past year even though she has been receiving excellent care where she is. It was the toughest decision my husband and his siblings have made. Hopefully she will be happy once she is home.
My son in the military has left his home and is in training for his deployment. Thank you for all your continued prayers for him and all the men and women in the armed forces.
Also, a big thank you to all of you who played my Q&A blog post this week. What a fun way to get to know each other better. If you would like to join in on it, you can find the post here.
My YOP 9 list is almost completed. How much fun it is to find new projects to complete. I have been perusing my collection of patterns and have discovered several that really excited me. I even have the yarn available for all the ones I want to make!
Bread making has happened this week. I am still trying to find the perfect recipe for our liking. There are two more I want to try to see which one we like the best. Then I will tweak it so I can incorporate spelt flour and milled flax seed into it to give it a bit more healthy vibe than just white bread. It has been quite a bit of fun for me.
BTW........I think summer has arrived in Arizona. We will be reaching 105F today. (40,5C) Looks like it is time for me to get back into my water aerobics! That is my favorite form exercise during these hot months.
Until next time......................Happy Crafting!!!!
