The Bunny YOP

I’m pretty sure this isn’t the first time I’ve used Bunny YOP as a post title. Now that I’ve had a couple of weeks of down time, I’m ready to get back on the Year of Projects wagon.

Knitting

I’ve been primarily working on my Vertices Unite shawl. The yarn is naturally dyed, and although the colors are somewhat muted, I think they are great for spring. I was planning to use the pink for the border, but I’ve decided instead to bring in a new color — the yellowy green. I think this is one of those designs that will look better worn, so I will model it when it’s done. This photo also serves as a way to tell you that our porch furniture is out, and we are ready for porch season!

Sewing

I finally got the pattern cut out for the Melba dress. I decided to not use the expensive Spoonflower fabric for the facings, which will be inside the dress. So I’m waiting on some inexpensive cotton knit for that. I’ll use any leftover dress fabric for scarves for my Etsy shop.

I received so many lovely cards from the Global Gifts team after my last day. I thought it would be nice to commemorate them here. I miss working with my Global Gifts family every day, but I am enjoying semi-retirement, if that’s what this is.

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

  1. Okay, so is it just my silly sense of humor, or does that skein of yellow-green yarn look like the toes on a large foot sticking out from under your shawl?! ๐Ÿ˜Š
    Love the dress pattern! I think I would need a walking slit at the hem. Probably at the side, but possibly at either the center back or center front.
    Do you have any of your felt pictures left from your show? If so, I think one or two would look great in your studio! I have never done felting but will be taking a class on Nuno Felting next month! It is about applying wool roving to a sheer silk or other such fabric. Sounds tricky but looking forward to seeing how it is done.

  2. Love that positive thinking that we will get to enjoy porch furniture. Actually it’s supposed to be in the 80s next weekend so maybe we both will get some porch/deck time. Congrats on reaching semi-retirement. What a nice keepsake you have made.

  3. Yay for semi retirement. That is what I did in 2012, and then with 2020 and CoVid I think I can safely say I am now fully retirement. More time for bird watching and knitting!! Love the shawl and those gifts from your team are so amazing.

  4. I like the yellow green yarn you will be adding to your shawl. Really screams spring/summer. What a lively way to showcase the cards from your former workplace.
