starting after school on Thursday this week. It’s going to be a busy one, encompassing a birthday party and some trips out, so no chance of any crafting that isn’t child-friendly. Here’s my week in review and my plans for the next fortnight.
Arcadian shawl is now ready for the final 15 row lace border. I am one stitch short so will add that into the set-up row (which is pretty much all knit stitches). It’s beautiful, soft, light…. The dark grey contrast colour almost vanishes into shadow enhancing the lace effect. Other than the set-up row I have no plans for this now until after half-term. In fact, this will be ceremoniously picked up on Golden Monday, when the house is quiet again.
Socks – well nothing happening there I’m afraid. They too are being sidelined until school goes back. I’ve been enjoying Arcadian too much.
Student bank account – I want to finish this over half-term, it’s perfect holiday knitting and I want to free up the long cable.
I’m also going to do two quick (hopefully) chunky knits. An Aesderina in Manos Wool Clasica for a hat-less sister, and a Capucine in Wendy Norse for me. The weather is turning chilly again and I’m bored with having one blue hat. These should work up fine over the next 10 days or so.
Distraction of the week has been starting to sew a button-through A-line Kelly skirt for me, in a strawberry print babycord. It’s not finished yet but should be done in a day or two. I’ve enrolled onto a dressmaking evening class after Easter, which I am hugely looking forward to Hope you’ve all had happy weeks and thank you again for all your lovely comments.
