Six months left of the second year of projects I’m not quite half way in goal terms, but I’m happy with where I am and the skills that I’m learning. Two out of six pairs of socks are done, albeit with one that needs redoing a little to fit. A shawl has been started and finished, a second Babette finished and several side projects started and finished.
This week I’ve finally cast on the Vorticity socks in the beautiful Violet Green sole mate that I was generously given earlier this year. I am looking forward to seeing how they work up. This is a pattern that needs to be followed precisely stitch by stitch, line by line, which is fine for me as I tend to lose focus a little when doing non-stop ribbing or stocking stitch. It does mean it’s a project for child-free time only. That’s fine too as my sister’s beauteous purplish twilight Felicity is finally clear of all the increase rounds so I have the child-friendly middle rows and decreases left to do.
Thank you for sharing your Year of Project Blogs this year. I feel as if I’ve been party to so much – beautiful crafting and the full range of happy, sad and challenging life events that crafting helps us all to handle. Wishing you all a very happy, healthy and safe 2013.
