Goal share time: I can say with a fair amount of certainty, I didn’t buy yarn in February of 2021. I more than made up for it in January; I had an advent box to open for the first 2 weeks of February- but the yarn was PURCHASED in January! One of 3 months of cold sheep complete.
I’m about to finish up my Right Round Scarf!! Its been 2 weeks of almost exclusive works. Size 3 needles and fingering weight yarn is still slow when its stockinette! I’m so pleased with the results!! Less than 50 rounds to go, a zillion ends to weave in (ok, about 100), and a kitchner bind-off! I want to finish it today, but it likely will be a March 1st finish- still ok with this!
I’m going to start the worsted version as soon as this is done. Its going to be PERFECT for FREEZING, WINDY winter days (spoiler: liner). This is also an informal testing call. SO… yeah.
I have my Acute Shawl out to a few testers and I need to find the right (local) place for some pictures of the small mountain of shawls I’ve produced for this project! And create a chart, I think I’m going to draw the symbols over a close-up. This week I couldn’t shake the idea of using bulky weight for an Acute Cowl. Within an hour or so, I whipped up this darling in Lion Brand Thick and Quick with my trusty 10mm hook- I’ve added this option to the pattern. SOON I’ll be able to release the project!
Other boring news, I got new retro Mom jeans and I’m wearing them unironically with Dr. Marten’s Chelsea boots. What have I become?!?!
