FOs (2:00) Fleece and Harmony Connections Hat in Bulky weight Signature yarn.
I am sure that Jennifer from Fleece and Harmony can take much better pictures of these. I am working on writing up the pattern. It involves reversible cables. Thank you to Fiona Alice for teaching them to me at Knit East 2015. I love these beanies.
Sock Yarn Blanket by by Shelly Kang. I have have modified it so that the blanket is in stocking stitch because I like how the I can really see the colours. I am using leftovers from other projects, except the Little French Meadow January 2018 mini skeins club. I love all the new squares I added. It was a great project for when I was not feeling well.
Stash or Shelf KAL for the entire year. I stated this KAL as a copycat to This Old Knits podcast Stash or Shelf KAL (I did ask her first before I tagged along). It was a great idea so I just had to join. I have lots of stuff in my stash that I have not used this is to help us use up what we have purchased. Anything that was bought before January 1, 2018 is considered stash (yarn) or shelf (patterns).
Worsted Socks KAL for the entire year. Knit a pair of worsted weight socks any size gets you an entry. I will give you a bonus if you use one of CAWcreations sock designs: either the Old Fashioned Socks or a pair of socks from the 2018 CAWcreations Knitting Calendar eBook of patterns Basic Worsted Sock or any of the others that come out later this year.
Knit Repairs (21:58)
I fixed a healing shawl I made using the arpeggio pattern. Picked up the stitches that had unraveled. Knit the rows onto the threads that were there, cast off and tied it off.
Daniel’s extra fine merino sweater… I need to buy some merino to match. Shopping time.
Vintage sweaters from a colleague. They just had small one stitch holes. I used the ends that were not woven in to fix the sweaters. I will now not sew in ends on the inside of sweaters (great excuse to be finished without sewing in ends).
Fire in the Blue sweater needs bigger arms (I wondered about that), and I need to add some more in the back so the yarn is not stretched too much. Pattern design changes.
Sanctuary by Faye Kellerman. I love how she writes. This is number seven from the Peter and Rina Decker series. I am familiar with the characters but I have not read all of the books in this series. The books can be stand alone but reading others in the series adds enjoyment. An entire family had disappeared and Peter Decker is assigned the case. Rina has an old friend call up out ot the blue to come for a visit with her children. These seemingly unrelated events intertwine to reveal a deeper mystery. It was a fast paced book that was exactly what I needed to read this week.
