Seventh Year of Projects - Week 33
Back for another weekly update on my Year of Projects! I can hardly believe that I have posted every week for 33 weeks now!! WOW!
I have focused on two projects this past week and have made some decent progress on each!
First my Rowe Cardigan is coming along nicely. I have completed the five inches of ribbing on the back and have also completed the first 34 rows on the cable pattern. Written this way it does not sound like a lot, but it actually is a decent amount when you look at it! I suspect I am so used to working with fingering weight and small needles that worsted weight and larger needles have rows going a lot faster!! So far I am thoroughly enjoying the knit!!
The second clue in the Solid Socks Mystery Design was released on Thursday morning and I have been working on that in the second half of the week. I have the second clue complete on the first sock and have finished round 30 of 53 on the second sock. I hope to have the second leg complete by the end of today or sometime tomorrow so I can get back to the cardigan for a few days before the third clue comes out! This will look much nicer once it is on the sock blockers (or a leg) to show off the pretty lace! It looks a bit scrunchy and bunchy here...
I was looking at some pictures of people's Find Your Fade Shawl and I am not entirely happy with the yarns I dyed to make mine. My color fades are not quite subtle enough for my liking (I think). I am mulling over the idea of frogging it and starting over with newly dyed yarns that are closer in colors. That is a decision I will leave until later!
I hope everyone has an amazing week!!
