THE WEEK IN REVIEW!
As you may have noticed, I've been trying to post everyday. I also made a decision for 2009: My work knitting time is going to be dedicated to finishing the UFO's I've accumulated over the years, I hope.
The week began with "My Work Beret", made from my hand spun yarn and for my cousin.
This is the third beret I've made. All from my hand spun. I love the look of this pattern in hand spun yarn. Thanks to "Through The Loops" for sharing such a great pattern.
As my first official "UFO to FO at Work" project I pulled out my Uzume socks I started almost a year ago. I don't recall why these socks ended up in the UFO pile, and I am ashamed to say all I needed to do to finish them was one pattern repeat and the toe. Now that they're done, I can't wait to wear them.
My next work project is a basic 3 x 1 ribbed sock, made toe up. I have to cheat a bit and turn the heel at home. I don't think, with all the interruptions at work I don't think I could make a successful heel.
I spent Friday evening and Saturday spinning. The Louet Wool Top "Teddy Bear" fiber came out better than I thought it would. I ended up with about 176 yrds of light worsted weight yarn. (10 WPI) Now to decide what to make out of it. Some fingerless gloves for me, or a hat and scarf set for my sister.
I hope you are all having a great weekend! See you next week!
