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 Cardigan 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!
It’s the final weeks of December and once again I’m wondering where the heck this year went?! It’s been a pivotal year for me in my personal life (but that’s another blog site) altogether a very good one 🙂 A few more projects have flown off the needles and one or two may even make the deadline before New Year’s Eve (I still need a date – interviews being conducted – ha!)
My Solace Cardi is finished and I loved working with SweetGeorgia’s Worsted. The hand is soft and squishy with great stitch definition and the “Ultra Violet” colourway is the most exquisite mix of every purple that my little heart could wish for. A few mods along the way and some to try in another version of this, should I make another.

Next up was a quickie knit for my “Silk Sweetheart” badge and a great reason to justify buying some Madeline Tosh Merino|Silk – well worth it!
Mandala Bias Scarf and Ravelry Info:
Speeding along on a few WIP’s; my NoFa Shawl and Ellington Socks photos and Ravelry details are linked to their names in green italic. Crossing my fingers to have those finished and a clean (more or less) craft slate for 2017. The next few days will be filled with cooking and a wee bit of baking for the holiday. My own crew will be here at home base for a few days, visiting various and sundry in-laws and outlaws and then I’ll have a little down time to spend with friends before a new year, another birthday and some big changes to come.
I hope your own countdown to Yule (or whatever) is going smoothly and happily and that you find a moment or two to relax and knit (or whatever). Cheers!
This is another of those “where did the time go?” posts. It’s true, this year has flown by and tomorrow is the last day of September. Autumn has been glorious so far, warm and sunshiny but they don’t last long in this neck of the woods. I’ve been knitting like a fiend as usual and trying to get a few things done around the house and garden. This girl is already in the slide to full hibernation. To bed early, harder to get up when the alarm goes and there’s only a hint of the dawn.
On the fibre front, I finished up my Rheinlust Shawl and glad to have it off the needles. It kept getting set aside for other projects but the end result is pretty.
For more stashbusting and a few stars for my Eat.Sleep.Knit team, the Starsheep, I knit up this nifty crescent shawl, Olilia. Short rows shape it and it’s worked in two coordinating Sweet Georgia yarns.
A couple mini projects followed, Black Locust fingerless gloves and my Relativity cowl:
Black Locust Mitts for ESK Flash KAL
Relativity Cowl in Mrs. Crosby
I did finish my nameless (Frozen Lake) shawl but it’s not blocked just yet 🙂 My favourite WIP of the moment is my Warren Cardigan. I should be joining to begin working the body at some point tonight.
