I know, I’m a geek with these titles.
Just a quick craft diary update, to show some WIPs with their stiches and yarns. I’ve got way too many things going at once, as usual! Here are four of them:
Top left, chevron stitch and The Yarn Collective Bloomsbury in Fuschia (will be a scarf). Top right, puff stitches and double crochet form an interesting raised texture, using two strands of laceweight Drops mohair/silk 70/30 in ivory and lavender. It is an almost-finished mega shawl.
Below-right, net stiches with evenly-spaced shells using Berocco Remix in Eggplant. This is a wonderful recycled yarn with a mix of nylon/cotton/acrylic/silk/linen. It’s on its way to making a rustic scarf just like one I made last year.
Bottom, a rib-knit using back post double crochet, and Rowan Felted Tweed yarn in Clay. I love this yarn, as I used it for one of my favorite cardigans, and so glad I found a great pattern to use it again. This will be the neck of a poncho.
2021 was one of the saddest years of my life. I hope 2022 will be much better for all. I’m staying busy and continue to plan for good things, even if some of those plans ultimately go awry. The last photo is of me on campus yesterday, wearing one of my hats and the new furry shirt-jacket. See you again soon!
