This week has seen me take quite a relaxed approach to my projects. Mr C has had a change of rota at work and it’s been his big block of time off so we’ve had some family time, including my son’s first St. George’s Day parade with Beavers.
I’ve continued with the Coastal Crochet cal blanket. I’m up to the end of week 5 now, which seems to have happened very quickly. Choosing the colours has been more time consuming than the crochet itself! I have a larger amount of some colours than others so I’m trying to introduce the colours I have loads of without clashing too much. It’s going ok so far I think.
I’ve also tried to learn continental knitting. It took some getting used to, and I think I need more practise runs before applying it to a project, but it was a skill I’d been meaning to learn for ages. I’m definitely at beginner level with it and need to find a way to get an even tension, however I have taken the first step which is always a positive.
I’m also hoping to start a new pair of socks. I’m planning on making the easy lace socks by Winwick Mum. I even cast them on one evening, but discovered knitting in the dark is a bad idea for the first round of socks and frogged it pretty quickly thanks to twisting the cast on round.
What are you working on this week? Have you started any new projects? What skill would you like to learn?
