YoP3 update - WooHoo!

This week has been great! I managed to finish off the socks I was mentioning last week... although blogger still manages to annoy me... not letting me upload pictures... even the simple banner for this post! However, follow this project link and you should be able to see a great photo of the socks I made! Again, a great Shout-Out to IndigoDragonfly for the amazing fibre named "As God as my witness, I thought Turkeyscould fly" Happy Knitting! C.

3rd Year of Projects?!? (yep.. imma doin' this...)

Here I go again... I did not participate well in year 3 of the Year of Projects, but fully intend to for year three... and I already have my rather reserved list... with hopes of working through my stash.. time will tell. I will quickly list here what I intend to work on over the next 365 days... err... correction... 358 days, since this new year of projects started a week ago - while I was in the Bahamas with the Family! First - I want to finish off a pair of socks I started while on vaycay last week... a simple apir of socks, for myself, dyed by the best indie-dyer ever IndigoDragonfly. The colourway of the sock yarn I am using for these sack is called - "As God as my witness... I thought Turkeys could fly" I am sure I will have FO pics next week... Once these socks are done - I will be working on a patterns for an open front vest (or sweater if I choose to make the arms) by the name of Whisper by Linda Benne. I am planning to use a lucious mohair-type fibre from Fleece Artist Then after that - I will likely turn back to my Black and Grey Vest of Doom. One that I have been working on (on and off actually) for a god three years... it tends to be my filler project when I need a break from current projects or am in-between projects. This year... it needs to get completed! Then the rest shall fall into place. I will make a more formal list once I have completely confirmed my list. I may make changes over the course of this week... Happy Knitting!
