Success is to wake up each morning and consciously decide that today will be the best day of your life. ~ Ken Poirot
Last year, I joined Stitch Sprouts. I worked through several projects that were meant to build my knitting skills. Okay, the class was pretty easy, but I met some new knitting friends. Year two is under way. We started our first project way back in March. Since March is all Malabrigo all the time, naturally, I’m using three skeins of Malabrigo Rios for Malabrigo Entralac.
This isn’t my first time creating an entralac project. However, I do think it’s been over 10 years since I last tried this technique. I like the fabric it creates, but it’s not my favorite project thus far. I’m not normally a product knitter, I’m much more about the process. That makes this project feel a bit more like work. To combat that feeling, I knit 1 square a day or 2 squares if it’s a day off from the day job. This way, I’ll finish this project some time in 2019, but I can spend more time on projects I’m enjoying.
Actually, this is a very exciting post since I have another completed MM project! Rugged Washted Headband was a dream to knit up. I love using the base Washted. The Rios version came out much too big, but the Washted version fits just fine. I took out one stitch repeat or five stitches. That’s six completed Malabrigo March projects so far. Just 10 more to finish! (I’m not sure why I’m so excited. I still have over half to complete.)
- Fields of Heirloom Veggies – Completed!
- Camaleon Flowers – Completed!
- Perky Little Camaleon – Completed!
- Rugged Washted Headband – Completed!
- Perky II – Completed!
- Camels on the Trail – Completed!
- Cian Nine – Slow but steady progress on this one. I might just get it finished yet in May.
- Malabrigo Entralac – This will be a bit of a marathon knit. I have about 10 inches completed. I think I need at least 20 inches.
- Birthday Surprise – I’m into the main body of the hat.
It’s my week to go again. I tried another new recipe from Easy Keto Dinners. The last new recipe wasn’t quite what we had hoped for, but the cheesy drop biscuits are amazing! I eat one of these every time I’m craving a savory treat like a bagel. These satisfy my bread cravings.
It was cloudy and rainy today. I wanted to snuggle with the kitties and knit. Hope your work week is off to a great start.
