A little longer....

Juliana

I hope you can see the progress?
I couldn't let myself sit down and write this post until I had some improvement/growth to show you!
I have been knitting the entire day (even though I thought it wouldn't take me more than an hour at the most) to get to the first armhole!

And now....I am finally there.....

Drops Baby merino

I also have dropped my first lot of stitches and to my biggest relief they worked out fine :) This is what the finished pattern will look like:

dropped stitch pattern

So now that I know the pattern works all I have to do is finish the panel, which encompasses another 1,10m of knitting, and then I can finally start on the sleeves! 

Oh boy, I do hope I see the end of this project sometime in the near future!

Hubby's Wristlets have also grown a little since last week, thanks to my hairdresser visit last week ;)

Drops Fabel

Over the weekend I attended a market to sell my soaps. It went really well and I thought I would share what my stand looked like with you:

Seifen Paradies

How has your week been thus far?

See you soon

A Small Finished Object

stash-busting wristlets

Nothing big this week, but an FO nonetheless :)

Here are my finished Stash-busting Wristlets.

This pair finished up the rest of my sock yarn that I had used for my Socks for Hubby which I made earlier in the year - that is success - a really don't like having little bits of yarn lying around, so wristlets are a great way to use up those left over bits of sock yarn.

List of projects that are still in my queue:

  1. Hat for Jas - Complete
  2. Crochet shorts 
  3. Another Hat for Jas
  4. Another Slouch for Kay - Complete
  5. Julianna for me - WIP
  6. Isis Wrap for me
  7. Winter socks for Jas
  8. Winter socks for Kay
  9. 2 Pairs of socks for Kay
  10. 2 Pairs of socks for Jas
  11. 4 Pairs of socks for hubby
  12. Hubby's Pullover
  13. 2 pairs of socks for me
  14. Rebel Lace Cardi
  15. Wristlets for me - Complete
  16. Wristlets for hubby - WIP
I wish you all a great weekend.

Is that more of the same?

Juliana

Unfortunately it is :(

But....things are moving forward :)

Drops Baby Merino

I have managed to knit just on 32cm of my Juliana.
It is really quite a nice knit and I can gauge my progress by making myself knit two repeats of the pattern each day. (16 rows) That is as much as my fingers and wrists will take at the moment.

The other project on my other needles - a set of wristlets for hubby.

Mine are done and will be shared on Friday as a finished object :)

Reading wise - still busy with the same book as last week.

How has your week been?

Sharing with all my lovely Wednesday friends.
