Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig ort (translates as the blessings of St Patrick on you) or Happy St Patrick’s Day from the Emerald Isle.
I had begun this post yesterday but I ended up going out early for the day to enjoy the celebrations, so the wishes are a day late but meant all the same.
I can report that the Aster has been blocked. I have no photos or thoughts on it so far as I’d like to wear it and see what if any difference adding in the seams has made to it.
This week I’ve worked on my Laurel Socks and am nearly at the point of casting these off. This is the start of the ribbing on the second sock. Later today they will be off the needles.
Having thought about what project I wanted to start next, along with looking through the remaining garments on my YOP list, I have settled on the Gingerbread jumper by Libby Jonson. The weather will be getting warmer so now seems like the last chance to knit a DK weight sweater. I didn’t have any DK weight sweater quantities of yarn so I’ve ordered some and it should be here this week, so I shall begin to swatch for that when it arrives. In the meantime I shall cast on a pair of socks for Elizabeth who wants a pair in that rather bright neon pink yarn I knit some socks in before Christmas. It’s a good way to use up those leftovers!
I have cut out the pattern and intend to get started with cutting out the pieces for the Cuff Top by the Assembly Line. This seems like a simple straight forward top and something I could use in my wardrobe. I’m going to make the first version in some of the charcoal linen that is left over from my Hollyburn skirt and then I purchased both of these fabrics for two other versions. I have already washed both of these so once the grey version is complete I can carry on with both of these versions.
And that is the last of the making for this week, if you don’t count the writing I was working on. So the list looks something similar to last week;
