Since I’m actually writing this update a week after the previous one (like I should be), this is gonna be a relatively short blog post (like it should be). Not so much has changed since I last updated. I did dye and ship out all the Weekender KAL yarn kits I had stock for, organized my yarn stash, and casted on my own TEJEDA sweater test knit, but I haven’t listed that TEXTURIZADO scarf in the shop yet, and I also haven’t finished one of my current projects. So, let’s dive right into WIPs!
MY HOME ‘OFFICE’
WORKS IN PROGRESS
THE EASY ONE SWEATER
No progress on this one, like I promised. 😉 Gotta get some other WIPs off the needles before I start on the sleeves here.
YARN: DROPS BABY MERINO // COLOR: #26 LIGHT OLD PINK
NEEDLES: LANA GROSSA MESSING CIRCULARS // SIZE: 3 MM
PATTERN: THE EASY ONE BY JOJI LOCATELLI
Also no progress here, even though I really feel like picking this up and putting a dent in it!
YARN: KATIA BASIC MERINO // COLOR: BEIGE (#09)
THREAD: DROPS GLITTER // COLOR: GOLD (#01)
NEEDLES: PLASTIC STRAIGHTS // SIZE: 4 MM
PATTERN: GUERNSEY WRAP BY JARED FLOOD
Aaaaalmost finished with my first pair of socks! I hope, hope, hope I’ll be able to finish them, because I’m playing a serious game of yarn chicken and I’m afraid I’m on the losing side.
YARN: DROPS FABEL LONG PRINT // COLOR: SILVER-FOX (#602)
NEEDLES: DROPS PRO CLASSIC CIRCULARS // SIZE: 2.5 MM
PATTERNS: VANILLA ANKLE SOCKS BY KNITS PLEASE
2017 SCRAPS BLANKET
Like The Easy One, this is on the back burner until I’ve worked my way through some more WIPs.
YARN: SCRAPS FROM 2017 PROJECTS
NEEDLES: LANA GROSSA LALA BERLIN CIRCULARS // SIZE: 4.5 MM
PATTERN: (MORE OR LESS) TEXTURIZADO SCARF BY CHAIN TWENTY (FORTHCOMING, PROBABLY)
TEJEDA SWEATER #2
Couldn’t resist casting this on though. Some of my testers are so far with their TEJEDA already, it totally made my hands itch. The SUAVE chunky yarn I showed you last week, that I dyed up for it in ARENA VOLCÁNICA, is already knitted up, so while I’m writing this (it’s actually Friday now), there are some more skeins soaking and waiting to be dyed.
YARN: CHAIN TWENTY SUAVE CHUNKY // COLORWAY: ARENA VOLCÁNICA
NEEDLES: ADDINATURE CLICK OLIVE WOOD CIRCULARS // SIZE: 8 MM
PATTERN: TEJEDA SWEATER BY CHAIN TWENTY (FORTHCOMING)
BENTAYGA HAT #4
I’ve actually planned to cast on my fourth BENTAYGA hat this afternoon, so when you’re reading this, I’m hoping to be halfway already!
YARN: CHAIN TWENTY FUERTE DK // COLORWAY: TBD
PATTERN: BENTAYGA HAT BY CHAIN TWENTY (FORTHCOMING, PROBABLY)
WORSTED WEIGHT SWEATER
Waiting for my bare yarn order to arrive, so I can play around with swatching for a new design.
YARN: CHAIN TWENTY SUAVE WORSTED // COLORWAY: TBD
ACQUISITIONS / STATISTICS
Since there are no yarny acquisitions again this week, and there are no FOs, I can skip these subjects for now. If you’re new: I try to work through as much (or more) skeins of yarn as I add to my stash on a yearly basis. So at the end of the year, if I’ve added more than I worked through, I’ll have to destash some skeins. So far I’m very much on the safe side though, check it out in my previous update.
Again, I’m planning to update the shop next week. Besides, I’ll be waiting anxiously for my bare yarns and get them dyed up and shipped ASAP, so the KAL participants will hopefully still receive them in time. Hopefully, I’ll be able to make the wait worthwhile by finishing some of those WIPs. That will probably make me feel less “busy” in my head. Happy week in advance everyone! I’m hoping to be back with you — according to schedule — next Sunday!
