Apologies for the delay last week – my boys have been passing a virus back and forth!
Be A Helper Craft-A-Long
Still goin till Feb 15. Make ANYthing for ANY charity. Wips are awesome. Did you finish a charity project back around the holidays? That counts, the craftalong started on Dec 5th so go ahead and enter it in the FO thread.
Soon be starting a test knit for a sleeveless top in fingering weight yarn. More details to come soon, but if you’re interested in knitting an A-line summer top, please email me at windsweptMonique@gmail.com or PM me on Ravelry
2nd sock started for Un-Christmas socks
Boxy by Joji Locatelli. Using Bamboo Laceweight from Spinaway Farms that I picked up in Rhinebeck 2 years ago. Variegated cool blues from nearly white to nearly navy.
Find Your Fade shawl. I’m on section , the 2nd lace section (still) and still in color #1, the raspberry-dyed handspun cotton that I’ve mentioned in past episodes (and knitting fail)
Another new design that I can’t talk about yet, but it’s a summer knit inspired by the musical Rent that I think a lot of you will like. Can’t wait to talk more about it later.
On the Run
Running and swimming and cross training, nothing special
A lesson I needed to learn: Learn to admit when you need help.
