It’s the Most Wonderful YOP of the Year

Knitting

I finished knitting Henry’s Unbearable Hat. It’s very large (I made the biggest size) but he does have a very big head (for his big brains). I tried blocking it, but it’s superwash wool, and it grew even bigger! Luckily, Marilee told me to put it in the dryer, and that helped. Yarn is Valley Superwash DK.

I’m off next week, and I’m going to focus on finishing up my Celtic Myths Shawl and working on my Arrowhead Cardigan.

Sewing

I finished piecing together my coat pattern. I’m not sure about the wool flannel jacket now. I may jump right into the wool melton coat, because that’s what I do.

Spinning

I’m waiting for my class so I don’t get used to making mistakes that I have to unlearn.

Gardening

There’s still some arugula and lettuce in the garden! The greenhouse seems to be working. Also, winter arugula is much milder tasting than summer arugula.

This has been a Year of Projects update. You can find out more about the group here (Rav link) or here: Backstage Kath’s YOP bloggers list. You can read my updated list of projects here.

  1. I’m not sure there are bad habits you can pick up with spinning, when I look around the Guild members everyone does it slightly differently It’s what suits you and gets results so don’t be afraid to take some of that ‘jump in’ sewing attitude to spinning. I’m right handed and have my RH closest to the orifice, some others, not all, use their left hand closest. So even when you have your lesson remember it’s what feels comfortable for you at the end of the day and really it all ‘just comes with practice’. The favourite 4 words in our Guild. Love the hat.
