February 2019 update

This was another slow month due to many things, but mostly busy work schedule.

Stitching is up first, Knitting will be at the end.

STITCHING

Ornament
I managed to get my ornament done early this month.  I picked JOY from Rovaris in the 2018 Just Cross Stitch ornament issue


Tapestry
This came out to play for a bit... but not much progress.  I really want this one done!


The Red and The Black
I did make a bit of progress on this one from Prairie Moon.  I am still enjoying this one and plan to pick it up again soon!

Feather SAL
I finally got my fabric and was able to start.  I got the first feather done, and a large part of the outline.  I am not horribly behind yet, and will hopefully catch up soon with most of the outlines done.


KNITTING

Grotine Shawl
I spotted this shawl when Song Bird Fibres shared it on Instagram stories.  The proceeds from the sale of this pattern go directly to True North Aid which does practical support for Northern First Nations Communities.  Caroline Dick (ElectricTree on IG) is the designer.  Song Bird is also donating  an extra bit if you use their yarn, which I AM!!


Retreat
During the long weekend in February I attended a knitting retreat just outside of Meaford Ontario.  it was an AMAZING weekend with no stress.  I worked on my red socks most of the time while there.
There were also a lot of finishes that weekend... including a knitting puzzle!

I will go with these  ladies again in a heartbeat!!

Red Harbour Socks
I got a lot of progress done on my socks at retreat, and managed to get them done on the 22nd.  I used my usual vanilla sock pattern, but added the Petty Harbour pattern for texture.  i was also VERY happy with how the heel went!

Sockhead hat
After getting my sockhead cowl done, I started on my matching hat.. I am doing both in Beach Glass from Lizzie Ann Yarns.  There will also be matching socks at some point :)
Here is my cowl for reference:
Here is where i have gotten to on the hat:

You've had quite a productive month! Well done! I love that Feather SAL you are doing, though I won't be joining you, I will happily watch you stitch away.

Great work this month. Tapestry seems to be quite a large piece but it does look beautiful.

You got a LOT done this month. That ink circles pattern is amazing!
