First Projects 2018

Progress on my “Prairie Fire“: working on sleeves now, all that remains to finish and submit for my Q1 stars. I don’t think that I can face making the same project again in a different size – the requirement for a bonus star so, I’m going to cast on two versions of TinCanKnits “Gothic Lace Cowl” and use up the leftovers from my “Persian Dreams” afghan and Hannah’s “Petra the Pony” softie.

We’ve had two days of more civilized temperatures and this always peps up my bear-like winter persona. This means the knitting should get a boost, the Ebay & Etsy may be refreshed with new stock and… if the energy holds, I’ve purchased a lovely leaning, ladder shelf to store / show off my shawls and it needs putting together.

 

 

First Yarn Porn Of 2018

Mmmm… Yarn… ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Hello 2018!

The gallery for my 2017 finished projects is up, you can check them out here:

Finished Projects 2017

A few more projects have jumped on to the needles since New Year’s Eve.

First up is the Prairie Fire pullover for the first quarter KAL in Eat.Sleep.Knit’s 2018 Yarnathon. I’m working this in Tosh DK and it’s lovely; more of a cotton feel and handle than a traditional woolly hand. I’ll be starting the lower band shortly and then just the sleeves to finish up.

Speeding along on a few WIP’s; my Petrichor Cardiganย is nearly complete and I have a few of the colours that I’ll be using in “Hue Shift” – photos to come once all yarn has arrived. I’m really stoked about the variety of projects we’ll be working on this year!

It’s a new year, a new-ish job, same old cat that I adore, another birthday and some big changes to come…

I hope your own 2018 kickoff is going well. Cheers!
