So, as of tonight I have finished 40 projects so far this year. I had a goal of 50 … I’m thinking that I may not finish another ten projects but I’ll give it a good old college try!
I finished my husband’s sweater in time for him to wear it at our family weekend in New Hampshire last weekend. He’s worn it enough to lose one of the three buttons. I love the deep green color. It’s a Knitting Pure and Simple pattern knit in Ella Rae Classic Wool.
I also finished his birthday socks. He was so sweet to gift this yarn to me in my Christmas stocking last year. With the intent that I would knit him socks with it. The yarn was a bear to knit with. Quite stiff and a bit heavier than the Worsted that I typically use for socks. My hands were tired after knitting these socks.
I’ve already cast on three more projects and I have a long list of others to be completed. Including three orders for crocheted items. Maybe I’ll get them done before the end of the year. Sadly, not many of my projects are small.
Tonight I was working on my Christmas La Belle Amie cowl. I’m knitting with Jojoland Baritone and I love the hand of this superwash wool. It’s super squishy. These two greens, a creamy ivory and a red will make this a good piece for between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
I also finished a pair of fingerless mitts that I have subsequently sold. I taught a class of wonderful women at our adult education program. The class was embroidered mittens. I didn’t want to make mittens and “shortened” mine to mitts. I was very happy with the outcome.
I’ve got to close because tomorrow is my Saturday to work and I have to get some beauty sleep! I’m feeling fairly accomplished at finishing!
Details of all of these projects can be found on my Ravelry project page. I’m lindar on Ravelry. Find Queen Bee Knits by Linda Warner on Facebook and QueenBeeKnits on Instagram, too.
