#day124 of #100daysofmaking: I finished a sweater! My second ever! Kakomu by Kirsten Johnstone in Lindy Chain @knit_picks yarn in the Celery color way. My seaming skills are terrible and I may have ended up with a size that is smaller than I had wanted due to swatch confusion but it looks pretty great regardless of all that. Also this makes me 2/3 of the way to my #stashdash2016 goal! 3K is in my sights! #projectsweaterchest
#day123 of #100daysofmaking: I can post this now that it's been gifted to my cousin, a "layette" set of an edged flannel receiving blanket (for which I redeveloped a method of crocheting tiny circles and this time I figured out how to tack them down on two sides so they will stay put better after washing-I will post the pattern and hopefully a video tutorial if YouTube will cooperate on my ravelry page soon), a Newborn Vertebrae sweater in Plucky Primo which was coincidentally the same color as the blanket I chose, and a Checkerwork hat by Vexy in KPPM that I found that matched the other two. Made a cute combo despite no initial intention to make the set match.
#day122 of #100daysofmaking: Knit pucks order of all the needles! Got a few rainbow wood to slow down some slick yarn projects with silk in them. And I couldn't not order some yarn - Hawthorne in Poseidon. Planning on a sweater vest for my son.
#day121 of #100daysofmaking: I started a Newborn Vertebrae from the leftovers of some Plucky Primo and while laking it for the 4th, I got to the end of the body. Concerned I may not have enough yarn for the sleeves, I examined it closely to realize I had increased on the front when I wasn't supposed to. I could leave it but probably not have yarn for long sleeves. Or I could rip back to row 6 and increase only in the proper places. Based on pic 2, guess what I did?? What a bummer waste of knitting time.
#day120 of #100daysofmaking: Still not much knitting progress. I took #hitofudecardigan to the park and got half a row done in the blazing heat while the kids climbed up slides. I put two rows on my Inky brioche shawl. But child number one refused to nap and my wrist felt funky after half a row of knitting so for the evening knitertainment, I reorganized my stash that I finally took out of my son's room and moved to the basement, went through a random stack of magazines and added them to my Rav library, and drooled on my just arrived @muststashsheep Woodstock yarn with 20! stripes.
After I listed my interests, it sure seems as if my life must be pretty scattered. I'm not sure how I have time to do any of those things after work, after cleaning, after making dinner, after unpacking boxes (just moved into my first house!)... but then again, I always set aside some time to sit down and watch some Law & Order, some CSI and do a little crochet while I watch...
