Hello everyone! I can’t believe it’s almost the end of the Year of Projects (Ravelry) year. I’m looking forward to reflecting on the progress on my list next week, which actually is a bit better than I think it is!
I’ve got a bunch of random things to share with you today, there’s been lots of knitting but nothing has been finished. I’ve been steadily making progress on Princess Fiona and the Great Western Way shawl, which I’m actually hoping to finish off this week! I’ve also put in some work on the Pride rainbow socks, but after putting in the heel I think they may be too small so I need to so some thinking about that.
Honestly, that’s kind of a boring part of my week haha! I’ve had a few days off, so on Thursday I went down to the beach to visit my parents who were renting a house down there for a few weeks. I had a great time with them, and we did a little yarn, tea, and book shopping.
Yesterday we had knitting club as normal, and we all wore our overalls that we made last week! I think the first photo kind of looks like a folk album or something. I love this little group we’ve formed. We bought our tickets to Rheinbeck this week and I CANNOT wait!
And then I’ve been doing a little sewing! Today I cleaned up the linen tee I made a few weeks ago, there wasn’t good instructions (or I might have missed them) on what to do with the inside seams, so I cleaned them up today using what I learned making the overalls. I was able to learn how to make buttonholes using the machine, and though with all my testing it probably took longer than just doing the loop as the pattern instructed, I didn’t have to do fiddle-y hand sewing!! The button was also attached with the machine. I also made some reusable cotton pads, and one the second two I played around with some stitches on my machine.
This weekend also included seeing In The Heights in a theater, hanging at my favorite brewery with my sister, and enjoying bubble tea and chatting with a really good friend. It’s just been awesome and so relaxing. On my last day off tomorrow, I plan to do some fabric shopping, though I won’t be able to sew anything until my printed patterns get sent here.
How was your week? Are you working on anything fun?
