Crafting On/Yarn Along this week and I’m working on the shawl for my friend.  I’m really loving this new cotton yarn from Knit Picks.  It’s so soft.

Crafting On and Yarn Along today.  Not too much knitting this week.  I’ve been doing a bit of sewing/mending and that’s interrupted my knitting time.

Working on the ‘lace’ part of Grandma’s sweater.  Instead of lace, I’m using a diamond pattern like on the sweater I made Ella that Grandma liked.

I’m working on a new project.  It’s a shawl for a very dear friend.   I’m trying a new yarn from Knit Picks.  It’s mostly cotton but so soft!

A new project to share for Crafting On and Yarn Along.

Starting a new sweater for Grandma.  She can always use more sweaters.  I’m using the February Lady Sweater as a base.  I’ve made her one following the instructions.  This time I’m adding a cable to the sleeves and am going to change the pattern on the bottom section.  This is fairly close in colour, though in person it is more black.  The colour is called Asphalt Heather, so it’s not a true black.

Nothing much to share this week.  That’s how you can tell I’ve been sick, my knitting production falls off.  Finished my socks, ends all sewn in and ribbons done.

It’s so hard to take a picture of your own socks.  This angle makes my calves look huge!  In real life, the colour is a little more grey than beige, but this is close.  I need to find a new project.  I think I’m socked-out for now (besides purse knitting).

Yarn Along and Crafting on this week with a couple of things to share.

A final look at the custom sweater.  I did take out the button bands and crochet them again with a 4mm hook.  Much better.  I found some nice metal buttons (flowers) at Belinda’s Fabricland.  I heard from the recipient the other day and she loves the sweater.

My socks are nearly done.  I’m working on the casings at the top for the ribbon garters.  The very tops don’t match perfectly, but they will be hidden under my skirt so I’m OK with that.

I took a new project that I started before Easter (Toronto project).  I haven’t worked on it much.  I forgot to take a picture, I’ll have to get one for you guys later.

You aren’t going to believe this but the sweater is finally finished!  Hopefully next week’s Crafting On will finally be a new project.

Don’t mind the moody teenage model.  I’m wondering if I should re-do the button bands, they seem to be a little tight?  We’ve got a surprise trip to Pickering this weekend, so I need to get the ends sewn in and finished up.

What’s on the menu this week?  Nothing too exact.  Today I’m making my slow roasted pork.  That will give us leftovers for most nights.  I also need to make up some food for Colin for the weekend.

I almost forgot that it was Crafting On day.  For a moment I thought it was Monday.  I finally finished the body of the sweater.  Now to move on to the sleeves.

We have our trip to the City this weekend so I’m also finding enough knitting projects to take along.  Besides socks, I think I might find a new project.
