Seventh Year of Projects - Week 40
Back for another week in my Seventh Year of Projects!!
This has been a fairly productive week. After I finished my Sock Madness Round 1 socks I wanted to do something completely different for a bit so I got to work with my acrylic yarn stash and began crocheting some pet snuggles. I managed to work up three of them and have now begun a little pile of mini blankets to donate to some pet shelter (I'll decide which one later once I have a goodly pile done up). I'll get back to making some more later this month. I am aiming to use up all my acrylic yarns to make up charity projects.
I also picked up a pair of vanilla socks that I had begun a while back (over Christmas I think). I made some good progress on these as well. I have one done to the end of the gusset decreases and the other is beginning the gusset decreases. I might get more done on these this week coming up - time will tell.
And I caved and cast on a new project. I have joined in on the Impressionists MKAL and the first clue was released yesterday. I managed to get a nice amount done since I opened the pattern. I hope to work on it some more later today.
And in deciding to do this shawl, I have decided to frog my Find Your Fade shawl. I have come to realize that I am not completely happy with the combination of colors I dyed for the project. I love the colors each on their own, but was not really loving the fade that it was going to create. I decided to use three of the skeins I had set for my Fade to make my Impressionists Shawl. And I must say I am happy for the decision. I will make a Fade one day - once I dye up (or find) some yarn that speaks to my heart more strongly.
Until next week!
