Eighth Year of Projects - Week 2
Hello everyone!! It has been a fun, busy week here. I have a finish and a new cast on!! And I remembered one more pattern that I want to add to my list for 2018-19.
I finished my Miriam socks! I really like these ones! I enjoy color work and especially enjoy when the simple strip pattern! It seems so easy to get into a rhythm when the colors change so evenly! Here is what they look like all done up:
And the Stage 1 pattern for Tour de Sock 2018 (Plan A) came out yesterday so I decided on my yarn and got them cast on! The hints for this design said to go wild with colorful yarn so I had narrowed down my choices to several of my different variegated yarns. I can never really choose a yarn and commit to it before I see the pattern - my choice often changes once I see the actual pattern! Anyway, I cast on and did a bit of knitting! I managed to finish both cuffs and got a start on the first leg. I hope to get quite lot done on this during the upcoming week!
I also worked on some pet snuggles this past week - they make for extra simple TV knitting (I mean crocheting!). I have two finished and a third has been started. Here are the two that are finished (except for the ends that need to be tucked in):
And I remembered one more project that I wanted to include in my list of projects to make this year. It is the Sockhead hat design. I am looking forward to knitting this one up - it seems like a nice, easy knit and I can use up one of my pretty skeins of sock yarn for it!! Which yarn - who knows yet!!
Well that's my progress this first week of YoP 18-19!! Off to see what others have done! Until next week!
