Coming at you live from my apartment (of course) to show you what projects gave me sanity over the last week.
I chose to cast on the Crimson KAL first, and it is coming along nicely:
I haven’t cast on the crop top yet. My goal was to keep my cast-on-itis in check, but these are strange times. In trying to show myself some kindness and work on what I want, I did cast on other projects this week:
I’m making myself a reusable menstrual pad. It’s something I’ve thought about making for a long time, and when I had need for pads this week, it was a great reminder. This is brand new territory for me, so I’ll let you know how it goes.
The other project I started more out of desire to tidy up my place: a Years in Yarn blanket. I first saw this after the new year, and thought it would be a fun, scrapbook-esque project. The recipe calls for more “planning” than I plan to put into it (not much planning, but still more than I plan to put into it!). I’m hoping to do my pieces in the same stitch patterns as their projects, or as close as I can.
This is the start of a lower half of an eight inch square: yarns from my She’s a Betty Bonnets, my dice bag, my Gully, and some crocheted baskets I made. The squares will have a garter border in a yet undetermined color. I’ll probably buy one of those pound balls for that when this is all over.
I also finished the knitting part of my Rebel Skull and Crossbones hat that I haven’t touched since the Super Bowl. Now I’m on to the duplicate stitch:
That’s the progress I have made this last week! Please leave me a comment about your social disknitting projects or tag them on social with #fiberadventures.
