I have been working on my handspun Nurmilintu shawl over the last few days and have made great progress. Yesterday I finished the second lace repeat and now I’m working on the next garter stitch section. I need to change to a longer circular needle, which I will do later today.
I find it interesting how the colors looks different each time I take a photo. The above progress photo really shows accurate colors. I am hoping to have enough yarn for the third lace repeat and if so, I will be able to finish it off the shawl with a few garter stitch rows following the lace panel and end with the picot bind off. I do hate playing yarn chicken, but that’s most likely what I will be doing as I get closer to the end. Fingers crossed I have enough yarn!
My sock and my embroidery piece are in the same stages as seen below. Eventually they will get completed once my shawl is finished.
I truly have nothing too new to share with you today. I still am working on my socks and made a little more progress. I have 3” to go before starting the heel to my November Socks and will be starting the heel for my Christmas At Hogwarts Socks. I feel I haven’t really given either project much attention but eventually will get them done.
On another note I casted on my Nurmilintu shawl yesterday and I am loving the look of my handspun. I must say I’m rather excited about this project and it has rekindled my love of spinning, and the use of hand-spun. Just knowing that I made this yarn gives me great joy and every stitch is so satisfying, which makes me so very happy. This simple project has made me realize that I need to spend more time at my wheel this year.
I am looking forward to a long weekend and happy that I have been able to take the next two days off from work. My plans are quite simple for my time off, a bit of necessary shopping, a drop off things to be donated to Goodwill and taking a little time for myself to enjoy reading and spinning. I might even do a bit of baking, we’ll see.
I have to thank Katie for sharing the link to Adrienne’s 2022 30 Day Yoga Challenge . I walk daily but need more movement and this is perfect. I am really looking forward to starting this challenge in hopes it will become a daily ritual and help me focus more throughout the day too.
