Work in progress 182





Hi everyone. I hope you're having a good week. I've been super busy this week, as Stitches is this weekend.  I'm not a vendor, but since I won't be working Thursday and Friday, I have extra on my plate at the start of the week.

Speaking of Stitches, I'll try and schedule a FO Friday post before I leave so you guys can still post your links. I should be posting a lot of pictures to my Instagram account, @candyskein, if you're interested in following.




This week I haven't had too much knitting time, so I just worked on my Sock Yarn Blanket. It's actually getting quite big considering I only started it 13 days ago. It's a great addicting project that uses up yarn I never thought I would use. Unfortunately, it's also caused me to buy yarn. I'll be looking for mini skeins at Stitches for it, as I plan not to buy too much full skein yarn. If you're looking for a fun project that's pretty portable (you can make single squares and connect them later on, or do little blocks of squares and connect them later), look no further. The only problem is you have to be pretty patient because it takes a LOT of sock yarn to finish this thing. I plan to work on it quite some time.


That's it for me today.  I hope you have a great rest of the week.

  2. Pace yourself... I have an almost similar LEGACY "Project" that I've been working on [and off] for DECADES using SEWING-THREAD!! -- Except, my smallish [3"] crocheted squares are built-up on each other... Two strands of thread are chained, then single-crocheted. A single "square" can end-up taking a Day to do! -- There's probably a Hundred MILES [if not more!] worth of thread involved so far. It also weighs about 10 pounds! -- Actually, I haven't had time to "work" on IT for a few years now... I probably *should* get back to IT!!

  4. It looks great - stashbusting projects always seem to be fun for some reason... maybe because they always end up being an excuse to buy more yarn :)
