Projects and Progress

I previously mentioned my phobia about knitting sweaters. Well, I’m pleased to say, I found a sweater project I think might help me overcome that phobia. Lady Kina. I decided I should knit something easy-ish so I would get some confidence in this sweater-making category. I think this pattern will be that project. We shall see……

Then. An email with a  Bernat pattern for Family Knit Work Socks showed up in my inbox. I printed off the pattern because they were cute. Even though I don’t like to knit socks. I’ve had tensioning issues with sock yarn/socks. But. This was pattern was knit from worsted weight and I said to myself “that might not be bad if they’re made from a worsted weight yarn”. So. I dug out some sock yarn and decided to hold it double to get a “sort-of worsted weight”. I might regret this project/decision. Not like it hasn’t happened before….

I can’t really complete a progress report without mentioning the Temperature Blanket. It’s coming along. Although, I should mention I’m about 10 days behind at this point (I should have seen this coming….). I need to spend part of my weekend getting caught up on this, I guess.

How’s your projects coming along?

Hi! I'm Lori! Welcome to my little corner of the blogging world! My hubby and I live on a small farm in Eastern Oregon with our dog, cats, chickens, horses and a mule. I work full-time as a department lead at the nursery department of a local hardware store. I'm also an Independent Pampered Chef consultant as I love to cook and bake. You'll discover I have wa-a-a-ay too many hobbies for the amount of "spare time" I have. So, I'll just keep muddling though this life.....
