Happy Independence Day weekend to my fellow US people! And Happy Canada Day to my Canadian friends! And happy weekend to everyone else! And happy any other holiday that I’m not aware of! (If you are celebrating another holiday this weekend/week, let me know in the comments, I love learning new things!)
With the new month come new HPKCHC classes, and new plans.
First, let me recap my June progress, which unfortunately wasn’t near what I’d hoped thanks to a combination of startitis, carpal tunnel, and overambitious goals, lol.
My favorite project I finished (not that there was a lot of choice, I only finished two!) was my Cotyledon Hat, which I did as a test knit. I was happy about it because it finally gave me a great project to use my madelinetosh tosh dk that I bought on an HPKCHC WEBS trip in March. I’d been looking for the perfect project, but I only had one skein. Let me just say, this yarn was awesome to work with, it was very soft and had great stitch definition, which worked well for the hat.
I was worried at first that my hat was going to be too big, but it turned out perfect for use as a spring/fall hat. It’s not tight, so it won’t be windproof, but it looks cute and will work for those cool-not-cold days.
As far as plans for July go, I’m keeping it pretty simple: I’m planning to work exclusively on my Aeolian in an attempt to finish it before my vacation later in the month. I figure I can do some smaller projects for classes on vacation, but I can’t really finish and block a huge shawl in a motel room!
