A Year of Projects: Weeks 21/22

It seems to be the season of biweekly posting. I guess this is what it’s going to be for a while. We’ve been busy getting ready for Christmas. The Christmas crafting is in full force. Babygirl has completed her ornaments for family so we can get them in the mail. We’re both finishing up some gifts so we can get them in the mail soon.

It’s a windy, rainy day here so we plan to put the tree up. Decorating the tree will wait until we see how “the puppy” reacts to it.


Babygirl’s Fall Socks are done. she has already worn them a few times.

I’ve completed the knitting on my Stripey socks. I need to Kitchener the toe and add afterthought heels to complete the pair. it’s on the list of things to do this week.

Most recent picture I can find.

Christmas socks have been started for Sockmas. I’m making a pair using Cascade Heritage in a Christmas colorway. I’ve misplaced the band, will update the colorway when I find it. Sockmas is a KAL hosted by Knitty Natty. It runs from November 25th to December 16th.


This is my focus. I’ve got three more inches before I can start the decrease. I’m hoping to finish it this week so it’s ready to go in the mail.

Stash Acquisition

A few months ago I purchased two skeins of Sewrella’s Autumn in New York Collection. It arrived a few days ago. I plan to use it to make a shawl in the New Year. I’m still trying to figure out what pattern I want to make. Open to two skein fingering weight shawl patterns if you’ve got any to recommend. The colorway Brooklyn reminds me of home, so I chose that and Sweater Weather because it went well with Brooklyn.

Last week I also received a prize I won from a Patreon group I’m in.

I’ve also received my Sock Advent yarn from Cozy Knitter. I’m still waiting on my Advent calendar. I’m really hoping it gets here in time. It’s cutting it a bit too close for my liking.

I think that’s about it. Happy Crafting!

A Year of Projects Week 20

Trying to get back on track here. I feel like I was able to get more knitting time in this week. So that’s been good!


Babygirl’s socks just need the toe kitchnered. That’ll happen this afternoon while she attends a coding class.

I’ve added a few rows to my Stripey Socks. Ill be focusing on these to get this pair of needles cleared off. Self striping Sock Advent yarn is on its way, so I’ll need two needles ready to go for December 1st.

Currently trying to decide if I should continue the Spooky socks or put them to the side. I’d like to have a pair of Christmas socks to wear for December. I’ll have to figure that out soon.


This one needs to go to New York for Christmas so it’ll continue to be a focus. I’m really enjoying this project. I plan to make myself one in the New Year. Once you get past the set up/crown it’s a great mindless knitting project. Great to take along when Babygirl is in a class or on our park play dates.

Short and sweet, but it’s a one week update posted on Sunday. 🙂

Happy Crafting!

A Year of Projects: Weeks 18/19

It seems like I’m on a two week posting schedule these days. I’d like to say it’s because we’re super busy doing all the fun things… but it’s not. I’m not getting as much crafting done, so don’t have as much to post. Just a bit of a funk right now.

I’ve decided to frog my Toni cardigan. The crochet was bothering my wrists too much so I wasn’t interested in working on it. Rather than add a row every so often, I’ll use the yarn for another project.

Dad’s Musselburgh has been started. The last one I made him is a bit bigger than he likes. So I’m making a smaller size. Here’s hoping this one is a better fit!

Other than that I’ve worked a bit on three pairs of socks. Babygirl’s Fall socks have gotten the most attention. Trying to get them off the needles so I can put the needles away for my Advent socks.

The Spooky Spellbound socks are the other pair I’ve been working on.

I’ve done a little knitting on my Stripey Socks. I’d also like to have them off the needles soon for December knitting.

That’s all I’ve got. Hopping to find my crafting mojo soon!

Happy Crafting!
