2020 updates - Week 5 - Tapestry, blackwork, and socks!

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!!!

Tapestry is looking stunning! How long have you been working on that one?
The little bird is lovely, he will make a great pair with the Little Stitcher design later this year. The voters obviously like birds!

It looks like you had a good week! I'm looking forward to seeing what you've decided on for a border for the Peppermint Purple SAL and as always, I'm enjoying watching Tapestry grow.
