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!


  1. Liking the look of the new shawl. Those color are great.

    Vanilla socks are such a good mind relaxing knit. I like that colorway too.

    There are gonna be some warm snuggled animals soon. Now they just need forever homes.

  2. Oh I am loving seeing all the colour combinations for this all. Can't wait to see yours.
