Hope everyone has had a nice weekend. Since it’s Sunday, I’ll be writing about my Year of Projects goals. YoP is a super-supportive Ravelry group of bloggers who plan (or in my case, prioritize) a year’s worth of projects and then blog about their progress. My plan can be found here.
On the knitting front, I actually have very little progress to share. Well, I did a lot of knitting, but it doesn’t look like too much. On the left, you’ve got the pieces of my Dumpster Fire ornament. I cast this on yesterday in a lovely call with Marilee, her mom, and Sarah. I finished the knitting this afternoon and will probably assemble it tomorrow or Tuesday. On the right, you’ve got the Slipstravagnza shawl. I’ve actually been doing some measuring and weighing, and it looks like I’m not going to have enough MC to do all 6 stripes. So I think I’m going to go off script a bit. I’ll make the 4th stripe as one small stripe of each color, then bind off. So even though it’s a HUGE bind off, I am hoping to finish this off this week! I have tomorrow and Tuesday off, so I think that’s definitely possible! I’m super excited to block and wear this, but I still haven’t decided what big thing I’m going to knit next. Oh well, that’s a problem for future Kathryn.
Since there’s not too much on the project front, I thought I would share a few photos of the place decked out for the holidays! My roommate and I decorated last night. We were able to buy a special from one of my favorite local breweries, which came with a wreath, a four pack of chocolate stout, and a really cool glass! Also check out my great grandmother’s vintage sewing machine, which I am using as a decoration table haha. One day I will get around to restoring it. The sewing machine is still there, I think it should generally work with some cleaning and a new belt.
Have a great week everyone! Are you doing anything to prep for the holidays?
