Year of Projects: Year 6, Week 32, Oops, Week 33
Hiya! I skipped a week. I was in NYC last Saturday for a friend's play, called Humanity's Child. I did not get home until after midnight and I had no energy on Sunday.....
I have a finish! I finished Lucy's Elephant Reserve sweater! This is the second time I've knitted this sweater. I started this sweater, but had to rip it out and start with the next size, as it took me too long to do it...
I also participated in Sock Week for Shark Week...I used Malia Mayed It's Shark in the Water, a self stripe yarn...
So not sure if you have heard of this movement online called #support_a_teacher #clearthelists Search for the hashtag and maybe order something for a teacher in your town....if you don't have one, I'm going to leave the link to my list, if you want to take a look. I have a ton of books on the list, as I'm trying to update my classroom library. I also have some different seat choices for them...
So I started this last week, but as I've mentioned, the wifi sucks at the Homestead and the pictures took all day to download.....so I've taken to using my camera again, instead of my iphone, since I save them to a card and just transfer them.
So in the past week, I have worked on LOTS of things! And I did finish those shark socks!! Fastest socks I've ever finished.
I've also been putting some time into finishing the second socks of my two Christmas socks.....
I also worked a bit on my Venetian Cowl.....I really, really love this yarn....It's Madtosh Magnolia Leaf.. It's worked on a small hook and the pattern is slow going....but I'd like to finish it for this fall.
I think that is all...next Sunday is my last day of summer break...sigh....
