Sorry Word Press has changed some things and I don’t know how to get around in it yet, sigh.
Ok it’s the Summer Solstice, which for me means our daylight hrs will start to get shorter. I only pay attention to the solstices because they signal days getting shorter or longer. I always look more forward to the Winter Solstice, because it means the daylight hrs are increasing and Spring is coming. 🙂 I guess I shouldn’t look at Summer Solstice as a negative and just enjoy the summer and fall without worrying about winter yet. Can you tell I am not a winter person, and yet I live in the Mid West?
I have been working on the lace book marks and they are now all sent out to their intended recipients. I knit them on size 1 (US size) needles using left over sock yarn, used about 4 to 5 grams including the tassle, depending on how thick your sock yarn is. They are quick and easy.
This past week I got a surprise package in the mail. I opened it up and it was from one of my favorite stitch marker/progress keeper makers, Adoreknit . She knows I am an huge Mandalorian fan. I was so excited when I opened it and found these two Mandalorian progress keepers! Put a big smile on my face, baby Yoda is adorning one of my WIPs, is he not so cute! Makers are the best people!
I got the new yarn I ordered for the wedding shawl that I need to have done before October. The yarn I ordered before was too coarse for bare shoulders and I returned it. I ordered both yarns from LoveCrafts and they were very good about taking the previous order back. I’m using my Daisy Rectangular Shawl pattern. I hope I have corrected the error (miscalculation) on two rows being too close. I haven’t updated my pattern yet because I want to knit up my correction to make sure I didn’t make it worse :P. If this corrects it, I will update the pattern. I will post more on this shawl (yarn, needles etc) as I get further in the pattern as I have only finished the border on the bottom at the moment.
I’m on the last sleeve of the Flax baby sweater. I will post a picture when it’s done :).
