Happy Sunday! Checking in with a Year of Projects post today. Year of Projects is a group of bloggers who plans their projects for the year and then blogs about their progress weekly, usually on Sundays. You can find my list for the year here.
Guys, I did it! A month after deciding I wanted to try and get to a million stitches over 12 months, this is what my spreadsheet looked like last night. I was helped this week by a few days in a row where apparently I didn’t knit at all last year. This makes me so happy! I’ll definitely be able to keep it over a million stitches at least today, but then things start to get a little tricky because I have a few days of more than 5K stitches which is a lot, especially tomorrow when I also have rehearsal for the show. Anyway, as a reminder, you can buy a tracking spreadsheet from my site. You can set your goal to be whatever you want, it doesn’t have to be a million! I’m hoping to figure out a way to make this more accessible since not everyone has Excel, but I’m not quite there yet.
I also finished my latest pair of test knit socks last night!
- Pattern: Twist & Shout Socks by Bethany at Knotty Gurl Crochet, pattern will be available for free here once released
- Yarn: Various scraps from other projects
- Timeline: Cast on 9/4/21, cast off 9/11/21
These are such a fun pair of socks! It’s a great way to use up scraps of sock yarn. I had never thought to use different colors for the cuff, heels, and toes, but it’s such a fun idea. It’s my favorite type of sock pattern, looks fun but easily memorized for take anywhere knitting. They also have the slightly unusual detail of a 2×2 slip/knit heel, which I hadn’t seen before.
Elsewhere in knitting land, I’m still working slowly but surely on my Ace socks and the baby blanket. I also started another test knit cowl last night.
Have a great week everyone!
