In a rare bout of productivity, I can claim two FOs (finished objects) in the month of June – along with two WIPs on the knitting needles. To be fair, one should have been completed in May but I dragged my feet a bit to make sure I was knitting it correctly. Better safe than sorry, after all!
So now I’m back on track with my goal of finishing twelve projects this year – one for every month. Yay!
Here’s this month’s knitting round-up….
FO: Baby Gift
I can’t say too much about this – since it is a gift – but I will be sharing details in the coming month. I’m super happy with how this project came out – and so happy to use a new-to-me indie dyer. It’s so much fun finding new dyers!
FO: Basic Top-Down Socks
I love having socks on the needles. And it’s always a joy to knit with Must Stash Yarn. Look at this self-striping loveliness! This picture shows these as a WIP but I’ll be posting about these soon on the blog!
Close to You Shawl
My July project is already on the needles (pictured above)! This is a gift for a knitter so I wanted to use some extra special yarn and a lovely shawl pattern for a single skein. This shawl, by Justyna Lorkowska, looked interesting yet simple – just what I need for TV knitting in the evenings!
Find Your Fade
My Fade shawl is coming along. I finished another lace section and I’m just about to start my third color (fourth in the pattern) of yarn. Yay! I’m loving how the first two colors blended together so I can’t wait to add another. I’m beginning to see the addiction of fades! Wow!
Though I have two WIPs that I’m knitting on, I keep finding more and more patterns that I want to start. However, I’m becoming increasingly alarmed at the amount of yarn leftovers I have from projects. I’m going to begin researching projects with which I can use some of this yarn. Look for a post about that soon, as I already have some ideas.
