Week One done - Year of Projects 2018/2019


I have not been doing as much knitting (gasp!!!) as usual as I am prepping for three courses I am teaching next week. 

However, I did finish knitting the baby pants, but they are not yet sewn up - and I still have the i-cord to finish.



I decided to focus on only one project this week - My Miette.  I am loving this yarn (Madeline Tosh Vintage) and the stitch definition it is giving me.  It is also pretty easy to knit and watch Netflix because lately I am alternating between Peaky Blinders and The Staircase - both of which need me to pay attention to what is happening on screen so forget lace shawls at the moment!





I bought some new yarn on Friday to make presents for a couple of special people in my life so I can't post anymore on this because, well, secret.

  2. Sometimes I think Netflix was specially invented for us crafters. I'm watching Friends, still on season 3, though.

  3. Those baby pants are adorable! The Miette is really progressing and what a cooling color. I have a whole board on Pinterest of 'secret gift giving'.

  4. Those baby pants sure look sweet. And the Miette is looking good. I'm also very curious about what you're teaching! I looked back through many of your posts under the label of "teaching" and I find you are quite a treasure trove of learning experiences. :)

  9. Aren’t those baby pants cute!?!!

    I’ve watched Peaky Blinders - Cillian Murphy is quite great to watch in that role! We just finished Animal Kingdom and Black Mirror so now we’re looking for our next series!
