This past weekend has been a productive one for me. That is if you disregard housework, study, laundry and numerous other things that might have benefited my household and personal development. It has been a really productive knitting weekend, so the benefits are to my mental health and my 12 outfits. Actually, I made a huge batch of awesome beef stroganoff so there is that as well.
First up I finished my Beatnik! That completes July's outfit, so you're only one daggy photo shoot away from seeing it. In the meantime here is a little bit of it, first thing in the morning, because it's cosy and warm, and I've worn it every day since I sewed in the last end.
Next I picked up the Maroo mitts I started in June while holidaying in Queensland. After they sat, unloved, for nearly two months with only onle glove half finished, I finished both in a day. I'm using them as a starting point to get more confident/familiar/awesome at colour work. These will be a part of August's outfit.
With those two projects off the needles, I started on the big knit for August's outfit. It's not a big challenge or a complicated project but as it is a rather large Mara shawl it will probably take some time to finish. It is off to a great start though, here it is getting some rows at swimming lessons this morning.
I feel like I'm back on track with 12 outfits. Even though I never really got far off track, especially since the track was so flexible in the first place. I'm feeling inspired and motivated right now so I'm rolling with it!
