This weekend seemed to go by slowly and for that I am very grateful. I managed to complete a project this weekend. I received many congratulations and increased positive ‘knit sock street cred’. Addicted to Sock Knitting FB group is one of my favorite and responsive communities. Every Wednesday is ‘promotion’ knit related things such as yarn and accessories. I’ve had a fairly decent experience.
Now that I have no new projects…except that small and pesky WIP pile. I just can get myself ready to start something new. Many times after I finish a project, it seems that I feel sad. Sad that the project is over and feel lost because my hands aren’t clutching needles. And I’m probably stalling because I need to finish a fair isle cowl. I’m trying to avoid size 10 needles. Isn’t that so silly?!?
I am happy to report that with my continuance of the Year of Projects knit journal I was able to increase readers. I was happy to see my friends from Canada, Ireland, and U.K. I’ve never been to any of these places, but I would like to put it on the map. With all these socks that I’ve put on my wishlist, this is another great reason to no only make them but wear them in those new cities I plan to visit.
WIP on deck:
Both projects have been casted on at least one time unsuccessfully. I am going to give the Khuno cowl again, but the Elwood cardigan will probably need a couple of private knit lessons in order for me to stay on the right track.
I think on a monthly basis, I’ll probably showcase ‘new-to-me’ projects that I would like to do. On my blog reader, a knitter showed a Christmas sock she completed. Her #22… It’s gorgeous called Falling Snow Stocking. These next two are lovely projects that I want to do NOW– My wife loves this hat. This is a rare occurrence so I am definitely starting this. Maybe I can get it done by her bday in October. As for this AMAZING sock– gansy sock. I discovered these socks this weekend in Country Weekend Socks by Madeline Weston.
