We can see how it goes, right?
I decided that if I can’t post photos here, I can post links to my Ravelry project pages. Please let me know in the comments if that got you to the photos. So far, Ravelry hasn’t put any limits on the photos we can post there!
I finished the Liverpool socks for my BIL, they are so bright and fun! I am sure he will hate them, but he will appreciate them for what they are. and maybe appreciate them even more on a cold morning.
I have been cranking away on my Hankshaw pullover. I am loving how these colors look! Of course, I have loads of each of the 6 colors left, not sure how much of the natural I will have left, but there maybe some hat knitting in my future with the leftovers. Twice leftover, as they come originally from a shawl…
Durrow continues to plod along, but I have a motivating plan now. First off, when I finished the previous square, I got a reward of casting on a sweater. Now one of my Whorls and Purls friends gives me assignments each week. So far so good, I do about 6-7 rows a week. At that pace, it will take several more weeks to finish the square. But I know when the rows get shorter, I can do more in a week. And so I am plotting and planning my next cast on reward. I am thinking of June, in either white and light blue, or light blue and navy. Yes, I know it isn’t a two colored sweater, but don;t you think it would be pretty with the lace in a different color? Of course, it might not be that at all. there is no telling, and I have a few weeks to go before I need to know. I think I will make a rule that Hankshaw has to be done also, if my next reward is a sweater. I don’t want too many of them on the needles.
Then there is Biophilia. I plan to cast it on no later than July 1, joining in a knit along, which many of my Whorls and Purls friends are doing also. But I think this wont; be tied to any reward system. I have wanted to knit it for quite a while, so the time is right. I have the yarn and beads, but Fiber Frolic is in a few weeks, so that whole thought might change. They have yarn and beads there. 🙂
I also finished Droplet, it is drying now. Hopefully it will dry and I can get a nice pretty photo of it before too long, but the weather is so awful, endless gray.
And did I show you what FINALLY came off my loom last week? Fabric! Not perfect, but usable. It was intended for place mats, but still not sure it won’t be dish towels…
That’s it in knitting world…
In real life, today is one of our anniversaries. We have two, because we had a lovely commitment ceremony ten years ago, not ever suspecting that we could ever legally wed. But just a few years later, we could, so our other anniversary is on the 19th, 4 years later.
And I will say that BOTH of those days were sunny and bright and warm! Imagine, in May, not needing winter clothes. Glad we aren’t having a big outdoor party this year – we would freeze. I think that flowering things are about a week or so behind this year, because the cherry trees were almost gone by for our ceremony in 2013, and they haven’t even begun to bloom yet. Everything is slowly coming along though, I know they will bloom eventually. It is an exceptionally good forsythia year, though! It must have just been a slightly warmer winter this year. Also, lilacs that have never before bloomed are covered in buds. So maybe Spring will happen eventually?
I think that is all that I know right now – thanks for your patience while I sort out how to share photos! And do let me know if you were able to navigate to them.
