Frog or Finish 2019 – May Update

It’s been a month since my last Frog or Finish update of the 9 UFOs that I and vowed to finish or frog this year.

Having dealt with five of them when I posted about them in April, I had four left to finish…

I was delighted to report on Monday that I’d finally finished the floral quilt.

I’m also pleased to say I took advantage of the hot weather at Easter and blocked the unblocked shawl…

Book group is the place I knit my UFO socks, because I don’t have to pay any attention to them, apart from when I turned the heel – which I did at home. So they’re growing nicely, but I’ve still no idea why I started at the top on one and the toe on the other.

 

 

That leaves my blue cardigan. Unfortunately I’m getting nowhere looking for buttons. It’s driving me crackers – all I need to do is find some buttons I’m happy with to finish, yet it’s turned into a seemingly impossible task.

Apart from my button frustration I’m very happy with my UFO progress. Dare I ask how you guys are doing with your UFO counts this month?

Until next time,

Stitch markers, mugs, pictures and roving

Over the last couple of months I haven’t done half of the things I’ve meant to do.  One outstanding task, I’ve finally worked on is fully updating the Dartmoor Yarn Company website shop. Here’s what I’ve added…

Stitch MarkersKnitting and Crochet Stitch Markers

I absolutely love making stitch markers, but during November haven’t been able to make them quick enough to have any left after fairs to put in the shop. But finally there are some  for sale, both for knitters and for those who crochet…

Hand Embroidered Pictures

I confess I may have been avoiding putting these in the shop, because I don’t really want to part with them…

Mugs

I’m down to my last three…

Roving

This really should have been up before now!

And I’m sure everyone has their supply of Christmas colours for spinning or felting this year – but just in case, and there’s always next year…

Okay, so I’m not going to win an award for business woman of 2017, but sometimes there’s far more important things to do than update your web shop.

 

WIP Update

When I just looked back at my blog posts, I discovered my last WIP update was September 7th; six weeks ago! Of course a lot has happened since then,  so I’m not beating myself up for not having finished anything, the lack of updates since, or lack of progress. However, I have made some progress. But first off, here’s what I’ve completely ignored… Continue reading “WIP Update”

Colour Survey

I’m  thinking about the colours I’m hand dyeing my yarns with. Various people I’ve spoken to have been very helpful, but I thought I’d ask you guys too. So I made a survey. It would be really great if you’ve got a couple of minutes to answer the questions in it and/or pass on to anyone you know who knits or crochets.

Thanks in advance,

Exhibit B #MMMay16

This year I joined Me May May, pledging to wear one garment I had made each week that I never or rarely wore, and to reflect on why I didn’t wear it. As we’re in week two, here’s my second…

Eva's Shawl

I can already here some of my lovely readers saying, ‘But we like that!’ However, that’s not the only bit of deja vu I’m getting. This second piece of me made clothing, just like the first, I made: Continue reading “Exhibit B #MMMay16”
