I picked up my cross stitch again this week. The above one is just a little one. It will be 4"X3" when completed.
This cross stitch is very slow going. But, that is fine with me. It will be gorgeous when completed. The part being worked on is the blanket wrapping the baby Jesus.
A new pair of socks needed to be started. I am doing them one at a time this time. Hopefully, I will not get second sock syndrome. The main reason I am doing them this way this time is, we are going out of town in 2 weeks and I wanted an easy to take project. One sock is much easier to take than 2. This will be a plain vanilla sock. I want the color of the yarn to make the interest. As you can see, it has a pool of color and that pool actually swirls around the sock. It should be quite interesting the longer the sock gets. The yarn is Cloudborn in the colorway Josh's Cat. I have no idea when or where I got this. It has been in my stash for quite a while.
Boneset!!!!!!!!! This is the third time I have cast this project on. Hopefully, this time I will be able to finish it. There will be lifelines used this time. If I had used them last time, I would not have had to frog the entire project when I made an error. Lesson learned. Unfortunately, you are not able to see the lace pattern at the moment. It will need a good blocking for that to open up. The body of the shawl is garter stitch, which is nice but, it has wrap and turns to make short rows. I am not a great wrap and turn knitter. Hence the life lines being used.
Here is a photo of my DK. Now, most of these cakes are stacked 2 and 3 high. I do have just enough yarn to complete the blanket. (7100 yard! 6490 meters)
Here are the colors that will be used in the blanket. This will completely deplete my DK stash. I am excited to think of my stash decreasing. I have been
