Last year, I joined Knitting Season which was a Kate Davies group. I loved her weekly creativity prompts and exercises. I didn’t keep up with all the patterns but I was motivated to start a knitting notebook. I used a large Field Notes that I had on hand and printed the club logo for the front. I am a bit over halfway through this notebook where I have been working on documenting my knitting. I have a smaller one for my fabric projects. I also make notes in my calendar about what I am making but I like the idea of having a notebook for the details. When I started my Yokey Dokey, I drew out all the the charts so I could color them in with the colors I was using. I think this had made it easier for me to do the color work knitting.
This week I continued to work on the color work for my Yokey Dokey sweater. I have one row left then a few rows before I split for the sleeves. I got some new yarn for donation hats but it might be too bulky. Think I will see if I can find an online option to order a few skeins of a washable DK.
I made a few more produce bags and posted a little tutorial here. I also altered the sleeves on a top and a dress to make them more wearable. Both of them had longer sleeves which I didn’t like so instead of putting the, in the donation box, I cut and hemmed the sleeves. I already wore them a few times.
And I purchased this cute pattern to make some pants for my grandson. I have some polar bear fabric and some plaids that would make fun pants.
**Year of Projects is a Ravelry group. I am also joining Katie’s weekly notebook link up because I love notebooks of all shapes, sizes, and uses.
