Monday, even though it was a provincial holiday, I still went to work for a few hours. It is amazing how much work you can get done without co-workers talking, the phone ringing, and client coming in.
Since all my other monthly goals have been finished (Except keeping up with the SAL which is weekly) I went back to Tapestry Monday night.
This is where Tapestry started on Monday
And here is where I was late Sunday afternoon
Not as much progress as I would have liked, but I also need to remember that work is getting busier.
The only other stitching I did this week was Part 8 of the Peppermint Purple SAL. Still loving this SAL, and also love that its not a huge amount of stitching each week.
Progress to date
On the knitting front, I have been attempting a start on the Northeasterly blanket. For some reason I need to start things 50 million times before I'm either happy with it, for fully understand it. This was no different.
Thursday night I finally was happy with the start.
Since my knitting is going so slow lately, this blanket will be made up of leftovers and mini skeins that I pick up from local yarn shops or dyers.
Hope everyone had a great week, and here is to the last week of February... Hopefully March brings some sun!
Saturday I sat down to work on Words to live by, but the mess of my stitching area was BUGGING ME!!!
So, I cleaned it out, and then got to work on the border of Part 3. I didn't get too far as Hubby and I spent a big part of the day together and then joined some friends for gaming. Day out included YUMMY Indian Food
Like I said, Sunday wasn't a great day, so no stitching to report. Let hope this coming Sunday is MUCH MUCH BETTER!!
Some of this will be a repeat of the January check-in, but still wanted to keep my weekly posts
This week had a bit of everything. It started with a bit of a panic to find yarn for a sock class on Saturday. I needed 2 coordinating colours... Now I have a bunch of sock yarn... but most is multi-colour or self striping. I wouldn't have been able to get to my LYS (Yarn it!) until Thursday night, and worried this wouldn't give me enough time to get a toe done for the class. Thankfully I found something I think will work well, and managed to also get 1/2 the toe done... all on Monday night.
These are the colours I finally choose.
That bag at the back is new.. .isn't is the cutest! Check out Gail's etsy page to get your own
Wednesday is the release of the weekly Peppermint Purple - A Year of Blackwork SAL part. I had to go to a clients today, so couldn't finish all in the morning, but managed to finished Wednesday night. I am all caught up on this, and will hopefully start my border in February.
Thursday and Friday saw a bit more work on Tapestry.
I am going to try my hardest to stick with this until I get a finish! It will return as soon as my top February Goals are done
Speaking of February, Saturday morning before my sock class I started my monthly ornament.
This month was Christmas Bullfinch from the JCS 2019 ornament issue.
After the ornament was finished Sunday morning, I pulled out Words to live by from The Tiny Modernist. Not much progress, but a bit done on the border
Hope everyone had a great week... and who else is glad the grayness of January is over!!!
