YOP Week #2 check in! Woot Woot Woot!
Didn’t finish anything this past week but progress was definitely made!
Just a living doll! Look at all of the purty colours (that’s right, with a ‘u’ in both words, yup…I took it there). Look closer…
Purty colours!!! Purty colours!!!
I was considering adding a row of beads towards the end but I realized that the thick/thin craziness of this yarn would just piss me off when trying to size beads for it. So alas, no beads…
Although I’ve made zero progress with my Piper’s Journey (my project is here) this week, I did add it to my July goals as a project to have finished by the end of the month. Hopefully this will inspire me to finish this little sweet gal up super soon!
It’s a lot of garter stitch going on right now. A lot. No purling. Hello. Can’t wait to get to the lace edging. Yarnover and purling….woot woot!!!
New project alert! New project alert!
Despite popular belief, it gets cold here in Los Angeles (seriously, it rained here this past week, in the dead of summer – that’s how we roll)! Sometimes you need a little somethin’ somethin’ to keep the chill at bay. Enter the Kaya Simple Raglan Shrug (my project is here).
Okay, so I don’t have a lot of it done yet – I just started it! But pretty colors right? Look at the full skein…
A little James C. Brett Chunky yarn for the job (staaaaash yarn – word). A little crispy and a little shiny but it should produce a cute little shrug.
That’s all for right now! My goals for this week are to wrap up the LaLa Shawl annnnnnd make some serious progress on both the shrug and Piper’s Journey. Would loooove to have all three items wrapped up before the world wide Ravelymipcs Ravellenic Games cast-on! 😉
For all of those playing along in this year’s YOP challenge, I hope you’re having a yarntastic time!
