making more progress

estimated 2 min read

I’m still making progress on many different projects, and might soon even finish a few. Here are a few projects that have seen the most progress in recent weeks:

Stria-pockets-progressStria
design by Bristol Ivy
my Ravelry project page.
The sleeves are now completed and a perfect length for me. I wove in all the ends-to-date and instead of knitting an applied i-cord edging, I chose to do a single crochet around. I’m hoping to finish it soon because it will be nice to curl up in. The pockets have a hint of a different accent colour, a nice deep purple.

E-socks-cuffs-beginE’s socks
my Ravelry project page.
I am finishing the cuffs tonight and hope to have them finished for tomorrow. There’s not much to say other that I’m pleased with how they have knitted and I’m hopeful that E will wear them! I’m curious to see how the Into the Whirled Pakokku Sock will wear. I’m hopeful that I’ll have enough leftover to knit a pair of footie socks for me.

I knit the first version of this design a few years ago and have been testing the yarn since. I have no idea why I hadn’t finished up this second version before now. I love my first version and this one is much improved. I was very excited to pull this project out the other day and find it nine rounds from completion and all my notes. Look for the pattern early next year.

I’ve been spindling at least 15 minutes a week. On the left is my golding spindle with merino/tencel in cobalt. The right spindle is my Bosworth and it is bfl/silk in kelp. I’m spindling both as chain-ply-on the fly. I’m in love with all the fibers I’m spinning. I just wish I had more than 15 minutes a week! It’s good I’m loving all these fibers, I’ll be spinning them for a long time to come!
