I bought the Wayfinder Quilt Kit during a Craftsy sale (score!) and I honestly don’t know what I was thinking when I hit the ‘add to cart’ button. I haven’t been sewing much in the last year. I am pretty sure it will take me quite a long time to finish it.
The box arrived this morning, and I’m actually really excited about working on it. I took a few minutes to identify and label the different fabrics. aaaaannnnndddd then I put it all back in the box it came in. I’ll get to working on it – maybe I’ll make a project schedule?
The other project I planned were some new socks I want to knit. After finishing up my Talia’s I knew that I wanted to knit more colorwork socks. My local yarn shop, which is within walking distance (score!), has the book _200 Fair Isle Motifs_ and after thumbing through it, I scooped it up. It is such a good resource. I am using the Talia pattern, but I charted different fair isle motifs. I used Google Sheets to play around with colors and patterns until I settled on these. I made use of conditional formatting and then the ‘find and replace’ function to make changes fairly quickly. I’m sure there are easier ways to prototype fair isle, but I found this method easy for me.
I have the gray, navy and hot pink already in my stash but no teal. Carol and I went to Fancy Tiger where I picked up a 50g ball of Sock Yeah! by CoopKnits in Topaz. I have some travel next week (Baltimore and then Austin) and then more travel the week after (California). It’ll be painful, but at least I’ll have some quality airport and plane knitting time.
