Hello everyone! Thanks again for all the kind comments on my last post, and thanks for sticking around. I really appreciate it. 💙💜💗
It’s Sunday, so I’m writing about my Year of Projects projects. YOP is a group of bloggers on Ravelry who plan what they want to work on for the year and then write about it! You can check out my plans here.
It will just be a quick one today as I’m still on vacation and I’m trying to write on my iPad which is a bit tough. But – good news – the Ranch Coat is done! It wasn’t quite dry before I left, so I’ll get some nice FO-tos when I get back tomorrow! It’s such a cozy sweater and I’m really excited to wear it now that it’s getting cooler. Even Angel likes it!
I’ve spent the weekend at this really nice AirBnb about 1/2 and hour from me. It’s been really nice to just relax and knit, which is mostly what I did. Even though all weekends have been kind of like this during the pandemic, it was really nice to do that away from my normal surroundings. This place is super cozy, with an awesome rooftop patio and I’ve loved sitting outside by the outdoor fireplace and doing lots of knitting. I’m finished one of the Joy mitts (after getting about halfway through on a larger size before realizing it was too big), cast on another Ripple Bralette, and have almost finished my second Malachitus sock. Here’s some photos!
My next project is another sweater test knit – it’s the upcoming design from The Sweater Collective. Fear not though, it still fits into my YoP plans, since I have working down sweater stashes on there, and I’ll be using a DK sweater weight stash I’ve got. I had another project sort of set aside for it, but I was never really in love with it and when I saw this design it just looked really awesome so I figured I’d try it!
Have a great week everyone! I hope you all find some moments of peace amidst all this tumult in which we live.
