Only 2 more weeks of this YOP year. I haven't even started thinking about next years list of projects. My main focus has been on trying to finish up some WIP's that are hanging around.
I do have a finish this week!
I completed the reknit of Vixynn. It fits so much better now. I raised the empire waist to where it is supposed to be and went down one needle size to make the bottom a bit smaller. Would I make it again? You betcha.
This is what it looked like before the rework. See how low that empire waist is. I am so much happier with it now. It will get lots of use once it gets a bit cooler than the 113 it is today!
Once the sweater was off the needles, I grabbed a WIP that has been staring at me since March.
My RCR socks. I started these in March as two at a time on magic loop. When I picked them back up this week, I immediately transferred them to DPN's. TAAT kind of makes me twitch because the yarn gets twisted and it seems like all I do is slide socks from one side to the other. Very annoying to me. My hope is to have these completed before this YOP wraps up in 2 weeks.
Last weekend we had our family over for a day of fun, food, swimming and laughs. We had a blast. Unfortunately, I did not take any photos of the fun. We had 14 people in total here. Hubby smoked a brisket and it was fork tender. Our daughter made a lovely pasta salad and I made 2 loaves of scrumptious bread. We had just a bit of brisket left, 4 slices of bread and 1/2 of the pasta salad. I call that a win.
The TX kids left Monday morning. We have spent the past week enjoying a quiet house again.
Yesterday, I spent the evening making Luna's dog food. In the process I messed up my right hand/wrist as well as my right knee and ankle. So, today, I am just taking it easy. No knitting until the wrist gets better............drat! Thankfully I am lefthanded so I am still able to do normal daily activities.
What are you up to?
Until Next Time....................................Happy Crafting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
