The Week Nov 14 – Nov 20

Last week’s goals with progress indicated:

    • Make recommended changes to the pattern for the Gir hat & scarf, including (reluctantly) instructions for using DPNs.
    • Organize test knits for both, including figuring out what expectations to set.
    • Make it through the election & the results.It wasn’t pleasant, but I’m still here, breathing & heart pumping – the sun keeps rising & setting, my family is ok so far, and I’m taking action; complacent no more.
    • Continue knitting the fronts on The Green Wood Cardi. I started the side decreases! Hurray!
    • Knit a hat for Henry using leftover mitt yarn & leftover scales. Started but not finished; I’m using Purl Soho’s Garter Ear Flap HatΒ pattern making an adult size small because my kids all have big heads.

I also:

  • Created a listing in The Yarn Office for the Scale Mail Mitts.
  • Created a new listing in The Yarn Office for a custom knit Double Rainbow Scarf. People can request one from the pattern page or from the 2 finished scarf pages, but this has instructions for requesting a custom order so it (hopefully) will make it easier for a potential customer to do. Also, the more listings in the shop, the better.

This week:

  • Make recommended changes to the pattern for the Gir hat & scarf, including (reluctantly) instructions for using DPNs.
  • Figure out how to organize test knits for both, including what expectations to set.
  • Finish Henry’s hat & attach scales after the fact, if at all; it’ll be easier to scatter them on the finished hat than to scatter as I knit.
  • Keep working on the fronts for the Green Wood Cardi.
  • Add another custom knit listing to The Yarn Office.
  • Start getting the house ready for the onslaught of people coming for Thanksgiving, which means cleaning. Ugh.

I knit, crochet, spin, and have done some experimenting with weaving and natural dye. I’m also a technical writer, mom to 3 boys, and enjoy gardening.
