I was going to post on how much trying to use Blogger frustrates me at times. Instead, I have decided to just be positive. I am setting myself a goal for this week. I have five projects here that I would like to make progress on.
Starting with the blue yarn at the top and continuing clockwise.
The blue yarn and magenta yarn behind it is some Baah Aspen. It is destined to be a Reflections shawl. The yarn is AMAZING. I believe it is a merino, cashmere, silk blend that is just luscious. I am barely started but would like to get to the first color change.
The brown blob that all the projects are laying on is a blanket for my great nephew, Silas, that is due at the end of May. I am using the Quadrature for Korrigan pattern. It is a very elegant design that is timeless. It has eight cables on a garter stitch border. I want this thing FINISHED!!! I have a little over five rows to go but they are almost 500 stitch rows so they are taking a little bit of time.
The sock on the left is my April Desert Vista Dyeworks knit a long sock. I have finished the first three pairs for the year. This is my first time using one of the Zombody colorways. This one is Zombody, It's Cold Outside. I would like to be past the heel and working on the foot by the end of the week.
The second sock is my March sock blank from Gale's Art in the Lady Sings the Blues colorway. I would like to have the first sock completed. I am working on the gusset decreases now.
The last ball of yarn next to the sock blank is the beginning of a tank. It is a shop sample for my LYS. I just want to get it cast on and have a little bit of progress. I had started it before but had to rip it out when I somehow got it the bottom of it twisted.
I will try to post progress through out the week of goals reached.
