Under construction

WIP Wednesday again. There has been a flurry of activity here on the Windswept Acre:

Snowbird

Origami

Jubilee has grown a sleeve and is waiting for the second one. Am feeling quite positive about this project now but it is resting while I turn my attention to the Twist Collective 2 week sweater challenge.

Cecchetti

Waisted

I cast on rather late for the challenge, last Saturday.

Cecchetti by Marnie MacLean, published by Twist. My project is called Sugar Plum Fairy, for reasons that are not immediately obvious. Knitting in the round, I am up past the waist now and doing increases for the bust. I doubt my ability to deliver this on time. Not for the first time do I find myself wishing that I were petite. Never mind, I shall keep knitting up to the wire and see how far it gets. The aim for today was the bottom of the armholes. We are not going to get there. About 10″ long now.

I have great hopes for this sweater. Love the yarn, love the fluid fabric I am making.

Link

One quarter of the scarf

Link has made some progress. It would have made more, had I not frogged a repeat and a half yesterday. I found myself knitting a purl stitch – the problem of working more than one project at a a time when chart symbols are not standardised. Now back to the pre-frog point, and the whole thing approx 18″ / 25% complete. No priorities for this, but I’d like to keep nibbling at it if I can.

Juneberry

Chunky

Couldn’t wait any longer, once my Signatures had been delivered, and Juneberry was cast on last Friday. I am trying to leave it alone but it is such fun to knit… It’s into the final body chart now, with the edging coming up soon. It’s a June Shawl, to pair with the Winter Shawl, whose leftover yarn is being deployed here.

The Rest

Quill has rested this week but we are going to town together this Friday and it will grow a little.

Frozen Leaves is an FO and you can see it on Friday.

My weaving remains untouched

Priorities

  1. Cecchetti
  2. Snowbird (add sleeve)
  3. Juneberry (complete)
  4. Link (extend)

The second test knit for Romi is forthcoming – I have the yarn to hand (and it is not Colourmart)

I am wondering if there will be time to knit a laceweight shawl before the Colourmart Lovers deadline…

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

Oh, deer

Oh, deer

Nell and I had a lovely walk this morning. The weather has cooled considerably and there was a very pleasant breeze. We both made better time than of late. … Continue readingOh, deer
