Seventh Year of Projects - Week 3
Back again! I am back home from the conference and have a progress report.
I made some excellent progress on John's Socks - that 6+ hour train ride allows for some serious knitting time! My knitting from the orange to the green marker is what I did after last Sunday until I got home from the conference and from the green marker onward was from the last few days after I got home. I am happy with my progress on these!!
And once I got back home I picked up my Find Your Fade Shawl and managed to make some progress with that as well! I have finished with the second color and have melted in the third color. Maybe you will see color number four next week - stay tuned and see!! The rows are getting longer every two rows so the going seems to be slowing down now. At the end of color number four the row lengths stabilize and there is no more increasing without a cancelling decrease. Here is what my Fade looks like now:
Saturday morning marked the beginning of Tour-de-Sock - I have been participating in this challenge for several years now (I think this is year four or five for me now!). I had actually forgot it was beginning on Saturday morning and did not take yarn with me when I went out of town for the weekend (worked on John's socks instead) so I plan to cast those on this evening. Each round lasts ten days and I am going to try to complete all six rounds on schedule (even though my Stage 1 will only have 8 days...) Check back with me in another week and see what I got done! I am suspecting I will spend time on my Fade and the Stage 1 socks - we shall see! I am using some of my own hand dyed for this round of the contest:
