No finished objects and slow progress:. Update on my year of projects

I decided to join the A Year of Projects Blog-Along on Ravelry >> - you can find details here >>

So here is my update on what I achieved this week :

Slow progress on my Riyito Sweater

Slow progress: My Riyito Sweater in the making

I think I mentioned in last weeks post >>  that I was planning to make my Riyito Sweater >>  my "Early Morning Knitting".  This is what I did, so I knit on it every morning for about 30 minutes.

However, as the rounds are quite long, I only get about 2,5 rows done every day, which is not a lot as you can see. I attached the progress keeper (that little owl) last Monday and I took the photo on Friday morning - not really a lot of progress, but a little...

At least I finished the audiobook I was listening to * >> and moved over to the next one, called "Ein Café To Go in Togo"`>> - quite entertaining so far.

Started a new ball of yarn on my "Read Between the Lines" shawl

Attached a new ball of yarn to my Read Between the Lines Shawl

This shawl is my "knitting on the sofa" project >>  at the moment. I knit on it while reading on my e-book reader (this book, currently *>>) as I can do this without looking.

I finished what I had left of the handpainted red-pink yarn and replaced that with a ball of Drops Nord in a cyclam purple as the contrast yarn.

I made good progress here and I hope that I will be able to finish it by the end of next week. I will then probably start a new pair of socks for "early morning knitting", probably with scrap yarn.

I am eyeing the "ugly duckling socks" >> pattern at the moment, but have not decided yet.

This would mean that the Riyito sweater will graduate from Early mornning project to sofa knitting - but we will see.

In addition, there is the dice roll for the next round of "Knit 6 in 2019" >> next Thursday, so we will see which of my planned projects will be next to cast on.

So, how was your week, knitting-wise?
Any plans for the future?

  1. The shawl looks great and your jumper is coming along well. I’m always amazed at people who can read and knit at the same time.

    1. Thanks! Well, that reading-at-the-same-time thing only works with quite simple knits, i.e. plain stockinette or simple ribbing - no lace charts without looking - at least not so far ;-)

  2. Your progress on the sweater is good. If all you do is 30 minutes a day on it, then you have made nice progress. The shawl is amazing! You have the most wonderful eye for colors going together. I might need to take lessons from you on that.

  3. Love both and progress is progress! I love the idea that the sweater may move from early morning to sofa - is that a promotion?!

  4. It looks to me like you made a lot of progress on your the striping colors. I absolutely adore your Reading Between the Lines shawl...especially the colors you chose.

  5. What a fun idea about the dice roll to decide your next project! I always admire the Read Between the Lines projects and your colors are very pretty. And speaking of color, the Riyito is dazzling! Looks like steady progress to me.
