Happy Sunday lovely people! Since it’s Sunday, coming at you with a Year of Projects update. The year is nearing the end (YoP runs for most people from July – June) and while I’ve mostly deviated from my list, I actually am maybe finishing strong this month!
So, why do I need to build confidence? Well, my knitting club friends and I have decided we are going to sew the Otis Overalls. We are doing this next Sunday, and yesterday we went to go buy fabric. My little haul is above. I got this lovely mostly black fabric with a little bit of white in it, which I think will look really nice in the overalls. They will be a nice casual work from home/ errand running option. But even though there is great video tutorials/ sew alongs, and a great pattern, it is definitely a very advanced pattern. Thankfully my friend Leah has made these before, so we’ll have her support, but there will be a lot. This week I am going to cut the pieces and maybe make a few of the first little bits. Wish me luck!
On the knitting front, I’m also making some progress late in the game on my YoP goals. The big one this year was getting through some of the older projects, and so after I finished off my Wee Envelope this week, I picked up my Great Western Way shawl. I’m actually pretty close to finishing this off, and I’m hoping to check that off the list in June. I’m making some progress each day on the Princess Fiona sweater, and even though it’s a little curly with all that stockinette, it’s starting to look like a sweater! I also cast on a pair of Pride socks for June, which I’ll show off tomorrow for a Sock it to Me Monday post.
This weekend was really nice, yesterday was just a chill day with knitting and sewing and then today I went to church and sung with other people and it was just a wonderful thing to do again after so long. Hope you all had a good weekend!
