Seventh Year of Projects - Week 2




I'm back again with my second post!  I spent most of the first half of the week working on my Find Your Fade and made some serious progress!  I am finished the first color and have six rows to go on the second color before I am ready to add in the third color.  We shall see how much I get done once I get back to it later this upcoming week!!  That little splash of blue is where I left off from my last update.



I was also traveling to a conference and took John's Vanilla Socks as I wanted something nice and mindless for my many hours of train travel.  I managed to get quite a lot done!  I am working on the gusset decreases on the first sock!  The marker shows where I was when I left home on Thursday morning!  I will be able to get more done on this one over the next couple evenings and on the way home on Wednesday!



This post is short and sweet!  I'll (hopefully) have more to report on next week after I am back home!

  4. So glad you're back! I want to do 'Find Your Fade Shawl' but I can't buy all that yarn at once so I think I will start out with a dark and fade into light...we'll see but yours is gorgeous!
    Yes, socks are a great carry along project and you DID get a lot done! Have a great week!

    1. Thanks! For me the expense was not too bad since I already had a bunch of bare yarn at home. The hardest part was deciding on colors to dye it!

  5. I like the girly pinks of your Find Your Fade shawl. I am missing gusset heels right now; it seems eons ago since I've last knitted one. Is your husband patiently waiting for his socks or is he like mine who kept asking me if I was done yet when I was knitting his Superman socks.
