Missing in Action

I can’t believe it’s now been a month since I’ve share here what’s going on in my knitting life… I’ll try to catch on the best I can.

To start with, I have almost started some kids to knit. I actually did two sessions in the past month, but it looks like we are not going to agree on the terms with the club that hosted the classes, so I don’t think this has any future. It’s a pity, but on the other hand probably to the best as I am about to get super busy at my full-time job, and it would be lovely to have Sundays free after all.

I have finished the second red dress – that is, almost. It needs ends to be weaved in (like hundreds of those!), blocking and adding some finishing touches. This me adding the last round of flowers to it.

I have finished two new table mats – both using the V-Stitch from. I still need to block them, so here is how one of them looked in the progress.

I have a dilemma on my hands called Nefertity. A crochet top I started for the summer. My man has called it “Nefertity Necklace” (well, it was just the yoke at the time, lol). He hates it, I am not so sure. I am also not sure if I should stop at this legth, or do another round of pineapples, to bring it to the hips….

I have also been swatching some ideas to restart the beige dress from last year.

Finally, my latest endeavor is an attempt to create something from the lovely bamboo yarn I have recovered from an unsuccessful project. It is now meant to be some sort of tank top for me for the summer. I only have about 250 gr of it, and am totally unsure how long they will last me. I didn’t want to knit in round, as the yarn is too soft, and seams will give it some structure. So instead I cast on the front and the back at the same time from two balls of yarn. This way I know exactly when I run out of yarn, and have both sides of the exact length.

Well, I suppose that’s it for the moment. I am now trying to figure out whether I can get my Instagram posts appear here automatically – if I succeed, there will be many more brief updates coming!
