one finished project…

I managed to finish one of my knitting projects!  I started it in October of 2015, and it’s been languishing since last November.  But I spent Labor Day relaxing and doing some marathon knitting to finish it.  Just needs to be blocked (which means I need to find my blocking mats).

And I then promptly started a new knitting project.  But it’s small and I should have it finished in a week or so.  The yarn is ITO Sensai silk/mohair.  And I’m knitting it with one strand each of the Blush and Crocus held together – which is creating an interesting color which is hard to capture accurately.

I’ve made a little more progress on the Golden Ratio Blackwork Project as well- I’m estimating I’m just over 25% complete.  The blackwork section I’m working on now, is very detailed and the stitching is sloooowww…

I’ve got another stitching project in the planning stages – once I have the fabric/colors all picked out, I’ll post some details.  😉

I may have also purchased some yarn for a couple other projects – I’m weak, what can I say… 😀

First up is the yarn for Purl Soho’s Shiny+Matte Wrap:
