Hi there, over the last few days I have not been able to work as I’m too worried about my mom and her health. Some days I’m unable to do anything but just feel sorry for everything and I spend as much time as I can knitting away in front of Netflix series and movies. Other days I remember that she would not want me to just let everything go and that she is my business’s nr 1 fan and as such I owe it to her to take action whenever I have the time. And that motivates me to dive into dyeing for example.
So this weekend was a mix of both so on Saturday I did some dyeing
And on Sunday I did mostly knitting
This is an entrelac project I’m knitting without a pattern, this is supposed to be like a large scarf or stole. I’m using my own handspun yarn and of course this is meant for my mother! Something to keep her warm. It’s been quite a while since I last did entrelac so I keep my book close by as I need a reminder every time I reach the end of a row/round how to go about making that last square and how to begin the first of the next row/round. I’m finding it quite fun and am practicing my backwards knitting as I hate to constantly turn the work to purl just a few stitches. Also this makes the project go so much faster.
And I finally got some work done on my Sindri mittens by Shannon Okey – from her Aurora Borealis mittens book. The first picture is the front and the second is the back of the mitten. I’m not far gone but colourwork does take more time so thats ok. I’m loving my colour combination so that’s cool.
I also continued on a sock I began last week. The yarn is of course my own hand dyed yarn. On the second picture you see the pattern better. This is a pattern/sock that is part of my KAL knit from stash through the Addicted to Sock Knitting group on FB.
So you see I have quite a few things going at the moment. That’s all for today, it’s time for me to run off to my yoga class for some quality time.
Until next time, take care and enjoy your crafting 🙂
