Year of Projects 3: Update 1
Items Complete: 3
% Overall Complete: 16%
So.. in the last week I added 1 item that I forgot about: Summer Flies Shawl (number 1 and number 2 because I will be making a second). My first Summer Flies update post is here. I really like how it turned out and would recommend it to others who can knit.
I continue to make squares for the Lapghan that is in progress (and is a Christmas gift). I currently have 12 or 36 squares complete. For anyone interested, I'm using a pattern called the Walled Garden Square. I'm joining them with a single crochet into the back loops only and will make up a border when the time comes.
I finished a pair of socks and have another pair on the needles. I am almost done with the first sock so they are going really quickly. Gotta love that. I have decided that I will be making a pair for my mother's fiance for Christmas - those are probably going to be next in line.
I am also considering doing a sweater for my daughter for Christmas which means that the sweater for the Man may not be my first sweater. I don't know - I'm still lulling that one around in my head. I will admit, I'm a wee bit scared of doing a sweater. It is truly intimidating to me at this point - I don't know if my skills are that good or my pattern reading... and many of these patterns have charts. Any words of wisdom out there?
So that's been my week. Sock knitting, lapghan crocheting.... and I know I need to light a fire under my hind end to get the Navajo Diamonds blanket complete.
