It’s been a couple of weeks from I updated and that was down to purely having very little to post about. Instead of working steadily and constantly on projects, I was instead reading and in the missing two weeks read my way through the All Souls Trilogy, along with finishing a book from a separate trilogy I’d started, and I’ve now begun the next book that is in my reading stack. While I’m still reading constantly I am squeezing in more knitting time and the knitting and year of projects work is what you are here to read about, so lets get to that.
On my Lichen jumper, I’m now nearing the end of the body, approx another inch, so that should be finished shortly. Then all that remains are the sleeves and if I took my head out of my books long enough this jumper would be finished in no time at all really.
I’ve worked a small amount more on my #2 socks. I’m as far as the gusset increases on these. I can’t say I’m overly excited about the yarns in this sock set, so I may gift these to my daughter. We shall see if I prefer them any more when they are complete.
I haven’t made any further progress with the red top, what I have done is start another local sewing workshop, in which we are making a short sleeve, button down the back top. I’m using this Viscose material, which is the first time I’ve used this material and I’ll be putting in some buttonholes so another new skill to learn.
That is all the YOP projects that I’ve been happily working on and the progress to date. So although the updates are not overly exciting, I’m still enjoying working monogamously on projects at a slow and steady pace, enjoying the process as much as the product.
