YOP – year 8 – week 32

This past week I picked up the extra buttons needed for my Coloring cardigan that I finished last week and that’s as far as I got with that. It seems that the faltering with this project lies in putting the buttons on. So it will be a surprise for you and me if I have it ready for next week or for a new episode of the podcast.

What I did work on this week was the Aster by Marie Amelie Designs. This has such an interesting construction with provisional cast on and stitches left on hold not just for the sides and back but for the neckline also. The Aster has now been joined altogether and I’m working on the body of it so for now it’s just a matter of knitting to pattern. I am planning on adding in waist shaping to this shortly. It’s not in the pattern but I like my garments with some shaping to them. I like how it helps the fit and look of them.

Aster

And that’s it, it’s been a monogamous kind of week again which doesn’t make for an exciting post but my knitting week has been relaxing and I’ve enjoyed it.

I have been checking out a few tutorials, on a couple of things I wasn’t clear on, for the Hollyburn Skirt and later, after dinner I’m going to cut that out. I’ve only made skirts before in a class, so the teacher has always been there on hand, but after reading through the instructions there were a couple of things I was wondering about so I looked up some tutorials, then there are a couple of things I want to do with the skirt that I wasn’t sure how to do, so I had to look those up to. You see where I’m going with this. In short I like to be prepared and know what I’m doing somewhat with it when I start.

Perhaps we shall have progress pictures of that next week? Who knows.

All that remains now is the list which lies unchanged from last week, but here it is none the less;

YOP – year 8 – week 31

This past week I’ve finished off my Coloring cardigan by Katrin Schneider. It has been blocked! I know I can hardly believe I’ve gotten to that part already myself. It just needs the buttons sewing on. I’m a couple of buttons short, mainly because I added a couple more buttonholes when I was knitting the button band. Finished pictures should be ready next week.

When I was finished the colouring I did indeed switch my attention to the Rosebud Socks by Wendy D. Johnson. I cast on and then promptly lay aside to work exclusively on the Coloring. I worked from where I left the first sock, which was far as the gusset increases and this week I’ve worked on nothing else but these Rosebud socks and they are now complete. These are my first pair of socks towards my box of socks for this year.

With no other projects on my needles I’m going to cast on the Aster cardigan by Marie Amelie Designs later today in some Eden Cottage Millburn 4 ply yarn. I have a sweaters worth in the Night Sky colourway and I think the Aster will look great in this colour. The colour is also going to be a great piece in my wardrobe, navy is a great neutral type of colour for me.

So the list is now looking like this;

YOP – year 8 – week 30

This week I’ve another finished garment to show off. It’s the Cumulus Blouse by Petite Knit. I’ve finally blocked it and because it’s lace weight mohair it was blocked and dried in no time, even at this time of year. Again this is another of last years projects that got finished and just languished and I think perhaps it was because by December of last year I was just done with 2018, I was mentally and physically tired and had this need to just be. That need to just be has remained and it’s lovely to just be in the moment, it is also perhaps why I have been enjoying monogamous knitting.

cumulus blouse

The monogamous knitting project is the same as last weeks one and is my Coloring Cardigan by Katrin Schneider. This needs two more rows on the last button band and it’s finished also! I started this on Jan 1st and is part of my make nine collection, so it’s taken me 20 days to knit it. Let’s hope the blocking of it doesn’t take quite as long as the Cumulus and last weeks Bentley. I picked up some buttons for this on Friday when I was in town so lets hope I get to it and can show it off to you all next Sunday!

coloring

With the Coloring coming off the needles very very shortly, I’m going to work on my Rosebud Socks for the remainder of the day and perhaps a little on my Northeasterly Blanket, I’ve started a third row of that so there should be some progress to see soon on that. Unless I get caught up with the sock this week I may end up casting on my next garment, we shall see. Ideally I’d like to finish the socks as I am aiming to complete a box of socks for myself this year.

When in town on Friday I picked up some lining for the grey linen I’m going to cut out for my Hollyburn Skirt. I finally feel ready to cut into that material and get started with that project. I was reading a blog post during the week from Paper Theory on Instagram about her 2017 buy nothing new challenge. She challenged herself to buy no new clothing in that year and instead to make what she wanted. It struck a chord with me, perhaps because I’m trying to get to the stage of having a me made wardrobe and perhaps because I want to be more intentional and thoughtful about my purchases in general this year. Either way I think it was the final thing I needed to get me in the frame of mind to start sewing the garments I’m wanting to make…finally!

I am thinking about that buy nothing new challenge and how it could work for me but I want to put a little more thought into it first.

So that leaves the list looking, a little unchanged for this week, like this;

YOP – year 8 – week 29

First things first this week. I finally got around to blocking my Bentley cardigan. I really can’t say why it took me so long to get to it. Even yesterday I had buttons picked out sat on the table beside me just to sew on and I read all day yesterday. I eventually got to it late last night. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy the knitting of this cardigan, because I did. I love the design details in the sleeves and the wider button bands and ribbing and although the green is a lot brighter than what I wear at the moment, it will still work in my wardrobe. I’m glad I got to finishing it and now can enjoy wearing it. The Cumulus Blouse is heading for blocking today so that’s going to be ready soon.

The only other item I worked on this week was my Coloring cardigan. It’s been such an enjoyable knit and I’ve picked it up and down throughout the week as the desire to do so came. I now find myself on the bottom ribbing of the cardigan, which should be finished later today. That leaves some sleeves perhaps for during the week, we shall what I’m in the mood for this week.

I’ve made no further progress on my socks or on my sewing but I appreciated the responses in last weeks post about sewing and how loosing weight is affecting my desire to sew or not sew in this case.

My list looks like this currently;

YOP – year 8 – week 28

It’s been a relaxing first week of the new year. I hope it continues that way because it was really enjoyable. I did take the first awkward step of recording a new podcast and that went live HERE, during the week.

I had all my projects finished on New Years Eve and I frogged 5 projects that I had lying around in project bags from early last year. They were all shawls and I had no interest in going back to them and finishing them so I thought it best if I reused the yarn and I’m really glad I did. It meant that I was starting the new year with no other projects on the go other than the Northeasterly blanket I’d started on Christmas Eve.

So on New Years Day I wanted to cast on my next garment. With the make nine set out it was easy to just pick one from it and have a little stash dive, as I have a few sweater quantities of yarn for these projects already. I chose the Coloring cardigan by Katrin Schneider, the same designer who designed the Winterfell cardigan I knit late last year. The different colours used in the ribbing gives the chance to add some colour but I opted for a dark charcoal with a natural colour for some ribbing. I’m a little further on than this picture now but not by much.

coloring

I had intended to start a new pair of socks on New Years Day but I got sidetracked by the Coloring and it took me a few days to get those on the needles. But on Friday I was just in the mood for a little relaxing sock knitting so cast it on. I’m using a Mondim yarn again, I really love knitting with this yarn and I’m going to have to pick up some more of it I think. I’m knitting the Rosebud Sock pattern from my Toe-Up Socks for Everybody book, same book that the Bouquet Sock pattern came from last year. I’m already at the start of the increases for the gusset on this first sock.

rosebud socks

And that’s where I am today with my projects. I’ve put in one more colour on my Northeasterly, so not enough really to take a picture of it. Again that’s just a project that’s beside my chair that I pick up and put down as the mood strikes.

I’m back to Slimming World in earnest with the start of the New Year, I relaxed a little with it over Christmas week. I am joining a local beginners walking/jogging group this week so I’m hoping that will help and I have to get over this idea that there is no point in sewing up clothes when I’m loosing weight. I’ve not learnt to alter clothes properly so I think that’s not helping otherwise I could just make my favourite pieces smaller and I need to remember I can always make them again in smaller sizes. Perhaps with the children returning to school this week I will take over the dining table and get to some cutting out and sewing.

So the list has not been updated with my make nine pieces, but some of them are the same, I think only one the painting is not on the make nine list so I’ll change that when I get to it for something that is. But here it is updated to what it is.

YOP – year 8 – week 27

It has been a relaxing and laid back kind of knitting week this week. No sewing or indeed blocking of garments has happened, but comfort, scrappy knitting has happened in the form of my Christmas Eve cast on. This year I chose to cast on the Northeasterly Blanket on Christmas Eve and for it I’m using just all my scraps and remnants of my Eden Cottage Yarns that I’ve been collecting up in a basket for quite a good while. My knitting time is a lot more free with not deadlines or timelines to be met so now the opportunity has arrived to use up those scraps and a blanket seems the perfect way. None of the other blanket project for scraps caught my attention enough over the last while to tempt me into making one, but there was something about the Northeasterly and the chevron look with the simple and easy join as you go that you enjoy in crochet projects that appealed, add to that the weaving of ends in as you go that there will be no other finishing going to have to happen with this blanket. I’ve been picking it up and down over the last few days as the mood as struck and it’s been such a relaxing project. Of course this isn’t going to be done any time soon but for now I’m going to leave the basket with the scraps and the blanket beside my chair where I can pick it up as often or as little as I want.

NorthEasterly

The other project that saw some progress was the second Aussie Sunshine sock. I’ve finished working the foot, gusset increases, heel and heel flap and have one remaining repeat of the pattern to work on the leg and then I can work the ribbing. It should be finished and off the needles today, leaving me to cast on a new sock for the new year. I’m also going to be casting on a new garment for the new year. I’ve not fully decided which one but it’s one from my make nine list I showed last week, I need to just check what sweater quantities I have and what pattern they will suit.

The one other job I’m doing before the end of the year is I’m going to go through the two or three project bags that hold wips. I’m going to take a look at them and if they are not something I want, which I suspect I don’t as they’ve been there for the majority of 2018, I’m going to frog them and use the yarn for something I do want.

YOP – year 8 – week 26

We are now half way through the Year of Projects for this year and I’m going to take a quick review of how things are going with regards to my year of projects list.

The first section is garments and out of the nine garments listed 4 are complete and the next garment will be cast on shortly once I decide what that garment will be. I’m taking part in the #2019makenine challenge. One or two of the remaining garments are going to change in line with what the projects I’ve listed for that challenge.

The second section in the Year of Projects list is the sewing section. I’ve not made as much progress in this section as I would have liked. I hadn’t factored in the course I took up and the amount of work involved and that was the biggest thing that ate into my sewing garments time. Most of the course is finished so with more time and the #2019makenine challenge of just sewing projects I’m hoping that this section is going to catch up to the others. Again the projects in this section are going to change to the planned projects for the challenge because my taste in items I sew has changed slightly.

The last section is the sock section. I am hoping to complete 6 pairs this year in the year of projects and I’m half way with three complete pairs and the Aussie Sunshine pairs going to be finished by the end of December. This section is moving along nicely and I expect it to have no problem in getting completed with some extra pairs added in, even allowing for the frogged pairs listed.

So now lets take a look at this week progress, which has been made on a couple of projects. First up is my Cumulus Blouse which is now finished and bound off. The ends need to be sewn in and then it just needs a blocking, so does the Bentley Cardigan so I guess I’ll be getting to those over the holidays. But the Cumulus is so soft and warm and it’s just delicious to wear. I tried it on pre-blocking and I really didn’t want to take it off! I had high hopes for this jumper and it has lived up to those hopes. I’ve plans to knit a second version of this jumper at least!

Cumulus Blouse 1

The other project worked on were my Aussie Sunshine socks. I finished the first sock and made a start on the second sock so these are going to well and I expect them to be finished before the end of the December.

YOP – year 8 – week 25

It’s been a week of good steady knitting progress. The Bentley Cardigan is finished and off the needles. It needs it’s ends finished and it still needs to be blocked and buttons added on and I’d love to say I’ll get that done this week but I’ve a few jobs that need doing this week so I’m going to see how much time I have to get it done. I love how this cardigan knit up, the pattern was so easy to follow and I’m a fan of the wider ribbing. I love the fit of this cardigan already and the 3/4 sleeves are just great!

Bentley 1

I started Sock #6 with the pattern for the Aussie Sunshine socks with the neon pink yarn I showed last week. This were by far the easiest project to pick up and down when I had limited time and were what I reached for when I got home late several evenings this week and wanted something easy and mindless to knit on. I’m still in two minds about this colour, I love the stitch definition of the pattern in this yarn but the colour I just shy away from and yes I know my hair was also this colour, but that feels like it was to a different me. I’m not going to give these socks away, perhaps they will be the pair to remind me a little of who I was not so long ago and that might not be a bad thing for the last pair of socks to be knitted this year. But I digress, the pattern is so quick and easy to memorise and they make for great TV knitting. I modified the pattern to knit them toe up and I’m using my preferred heel flap and gusset for toe up.

Aussie Sunshine

With the Bentley cardigan off the needles I turned my attention to the Cumulus Blouse. I had the body finished just to do the I-Cord bind off, so with that finished I picked up the stitches for the sleeve and I’m already half way through with the first one. I love everything about this project and hope when it comes to wearing it that I love it just as much! The Eden Cottage Yarn Eldwick Lace is so light and silky and soft, it really looks and is like a cumulus cloud. This I think I’m going to concentrate most on this week and see if perhaps I can get it finished in time for Christmas so that I can wear it over the holidays.

Cumulus Blouse

I didn’t get as far as cutting out my Hollyburn skirt and I’m afraid it doesn’t look too hopeful this week either. Which means I’m unlikely to have it made in time to wear for Christmas. I’m a little disappointed by this in one way but in another I need to retake some measurements as I’ve lost some weight with attending Slimming World this last couple of months and because I was loosing it I was reluctant to cut into the gorgeous grey linen material I have for this skirt. I’m planning on taking part in the make nine challenge for 2019 with some sewing projects so I think this shall be the first make of that.

I’ve updated my list now to reflect projects finishing and others started and it looks like this;

YOP – year 8 – week 24

Finally getting back to a YOP post. It’s been two weeks but with so much course work on for the two missing weeks I really hand’t done enough to blog about. A couple of modules have finished so I’m able to spend some more of my free time now knitting again, well when I can drag my head out of a book that is!

But there has been some progress on my knitting at least. I’ve still to get a start made on my Hollyburn skirt that I’m hoping to make as part of my Christmas outfit and time I am aware is getting short! Hopefully this week I’ll get to at least cutting it out!

The Bouquet socks that I began in November for the November Solid Sock Group challenge are now complete. I really loved this pattern and even though each row was a pattern row I found the whole process, from the yarn used to the pattern picked, to be relaxing and it was a project I couldn’t put down.

Sock 3 Bouquet Socks

After the first Bouquet sock was complete, I started the Triwizard Sock, a slip stitch colour pattern. As you can see I did complete the first sock. The colourwork did draw the sock in and although snug it did fit.

Triwizard sock 1

But here is that first sock now.

Triwizard sock 2

I frogged it, not because there was anything wrong with the pattern, but because I really dislike knitting colourwork socks and when it came to thinking about casting on the second, I just didn’t want to. So I frogged the sock and will reuse the yarn in a pattern and sock that I do want to knit and wear.

The theme for the December challenge for the Solid Sock Club is Neon. Neon definitely isn’t something I’m really into but I have this one skein in my stash. Why I bought it, I can’t say but I have it and I want to start using more of my gorgeous yarns in my stash next year. So I thought now was as good a time to start and a great opportunity to use this skein up. I’m thinking I’ll either cast on the Aussie Sunshine pattern by Claire Devine or the Couplet pattern by Bonnie Sennott of Blue Peninsula. I’m going to modify both patterns to knit them toe up as that’s my preferred method and I’m going to use as always, my preferred heel and toe. I like both patterns though, what about you?

Neon pink

The only other piece I’ve made progress on is my Bentley cardigan. I finished the first sleeve and while catching up on podcasts the last two evenings I’ve gotten the second sleeve knit and all that remains is the cuff, which will be done today. The button bands and neck bands are already complete so this will be cast off and blocked ready in time to wear as part of my Christmas outfit. Now to just get on with the skirt.

Bentley

Once the Bentley cardigan is off the needles though, I’m going straight back to working on my Cumulus Blouse, which I’d like off the needles for Christmas as well. I’ve the body complete so it only needs some sleeves and neckband.

So my list now looks like this;

YOP – year 8 – week 21

This week has been a whirlwind of course classes, meeting and parent teacher meetings. This has meant that knitting time, as that was the only crafting I got to do this week, was limited. I started the first sleeve on The Bentley cardigan one evening but got so tired after half an hour into picking it up that I just had to put it aside and head to bed. So I haven’t really made enough progress on it to show you anything. Yesterday when I was free, I had course work and assignments to prepare so when it did come to knitting time I really only felt like working on socks, so the Cumulus blouse hasn’t seen any work on it this week either.

So really all I’ve picked up and worked on has been socks. 

I did complete the first Bouquet Sock. I really enjoyed this pattern and although each row was a pattern row to some extent it really became very potato chippy. 

Bouquet_Sock_1_small2

I have been dipping back in and out to the Sock Knitters Anonymous group and I know I originally said I didn’t want to participate this month with the featured theme of Mosaic or slipped stitch colourwork, but I came across the Triwizard Tournament Socks and really felt like joining in with this months challenge. So a bit of a stash dive happened and I came up with three Schoppel Wolle Admiral 4ply colours and with my free time yesterday I cast on and began the sock. I did decide to modify them to knit them toe up and the pattern tells you to work the pattern on the sole of the sock, which I don’t normally do but for these I am, so it remains to be seen if this is a feature I like. This is the progress from yesterday.

I’ve been thinking about the third pair of socks I’ve cast on and left to one side in favour of both of these new socks and I’m just not excited enough about them. I think for now ,I’ll leave them but if I still don’t feel like knitting on them once both these pairs of socks are done I’m going to frog them and use the yarn for something I do want to knit on.

So my list now looks like this;
