IHSW - February Conclusion

Did everyone have a good weekend hermitting? I always work the 3rd weekend of the month, so I never have as much time as I'd like. However, since the Olympics are on, I've been staying up much too late to watch things, like last night to see the final of the Ice Dancing competition. So excited for the result!! In case you haven't seen it, I won't give it away, but wow, it was a very tough competition and all 3 medalist pairs did so well. 

But this is my IHSW post, even though it involves Olympic stitching, so let's get on with the stitching. I've decided to attempt a few tasks this Olympics. One is to try and knit a sweater for DD and this is here so far:

I forget the name of the yarn, but it has her 2 current favourite colours, purple and white. It was just purple for a while, and for a long time when she was little, we were sure it was yellow, but she's decided it's purple and white currently.

This is one full ball so far. I think I have to knit maybe one more ball before the shaping begins, but we'll see how it goes. I like how it's almost self-striping, it's making a neat pattern. 

For stitching I'm still working away on Ballerina Dreams and am here now:

I don't have too much progress since I'm also trying to stitch on one project that I haven't touched in a while for each day of the Olympics. I don't necessarily stitch every day, but I'm trying to pull out one project for each day of the Olympics, therefore stitch on 16 different projects between February 9 and February 26th. 

This weekend I managed to pull out several projects and moved them along. Since I haven't touched them in a while, I'll try and add before photos too:

Snow Rules - last touched February 23, 2016
February 17, 2018
AAN Maple Leaf - last touched February 1, 2016
February 17, 2018
See Ya Later Alligator - last touched April 15, 2016
February 17, 2018 with an admirer
Monochrome Link - last touched January 5, 2016

So lots of random stitching on different projects and I'll try and get another post up soon since I've missed Gifted Gorgeousness again! 

Happy Stitching and hope you're all enjoying the Olympics too. :)

  10. Love the purple yarn, I thought it was lots of different wools not one variegated.
    Great idea to do a daily rotation so you can see which projects grab you the most!
