2020 updates - Week 8 - Tapestry, blackwork, and knitting

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.
Current 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!

Tapestry looks wonderful. I love the way the colours almost look like one variegated thread until you look closer and see all the individual colours.
The blackwork is so pretty too.

I just started the Peppermint Purple SAL last night. I’m stitching mine in Green. Nice stitching, are you using the recommended colours on yours?

Your Ink Circles Tapestry wip is so pretty. I really love the colors on your Peppermint Purple SAL. I finally decided on colors and can't wait to start it.
