I’m so happy to be able to provide these show notes for y’all again this week. Of course, if you have any questions or comments, don’t hesitate to contact me!
Toasty Warm Autumn Socks
- Pattern: Lee Lee Knits Toast Warm Autumn Socks, free on her blog
- Needles: Size 4, 3.5 mm (these ones!)
- Notes: I modified just a couple things about this pattern. I went down two needle sizes, and altered the length of the foot so that it would fit me. I also did a 2 by 2 rib cuff instead 1 by 1, and made the leg a bit longer! I definitely hoping to finish these this week ;)
I also finished my mom and dad’s socks, but you’ll see both of those in a separate video very soon. Stay tuned!
Works in Progress:
- Yarn: Knit Picks Twill in the colorway Serpent Heather (pretty much my all time fav mustard)
- Pattern: My own pattern! The Genesis Cowl.
Hue Shift Afghan
- Pattern: Hue Shift Afghan
- Needles: size 4 nickel plated DPNs
- Notes: I have the goal of finishing this this year! I won’t share it every week, but probably once a month.
- Yarn: Snow Day from Ruby and Roses Yarn
- Pattern: Rye Light socks from Tin Can Knits
- Needles: ChiaoGoo size 1, 2.25 mm needles
- Notes: My first pair for my box of socks 2021 challenge. I am just loving them so far ;)
- Yarn: I Love This Yarn
- Pattern: Weekender Sweater by Andrea Mowry
- Needles: size 8
- Notes: If you’ve been watching the podcast for awhile, you have probably seen this project. I started it a really long time ago, and finished the body. However I then realized that the short row shoulder shaping didn’t look right on me, and made the decision to put it aside. However, I have pulled it back out again, and have the goal of finishing it during the month of January! I really really want to wear it while it is still cold here in AL ;)
New Cowl Design
- Yarn: Knit Picks Billow
-Needles: Majestic Foursquare, size 10.5
- Notes: I am still experimenting with this design, and am unsure of when it’ll release. However, I am absolutely loving it so far!
I honestly can’t believe we’re already in a new year. I must admit, I am a teensy bit sad to see 2020 come to a close. While a new beginning always means new opportunities, it also has the potential to bring about difficult emotions. 2020 was a big year, and a hard one for many reasons. But so many good things also happened!
Like I said, the start of a new year has the potential to be equally exciting and daunting. I am excited for what this year could hold...but also nervous. My second semester of college is starting in a week, and while I am excited…I am also nervous. It is going to look completely different from last semester. I am really looking forward to learning more, and taking more classes related to my major, but I know deep down they’re going to be very challenging, and new territory.
Of course, there are other things I am eagerly working toward that I would love to see take place this year. I would love to have a part time job outside of my home, and continue to save all I can to move out one day. I also want to focus on the Lord’s plan, and pray continually for Him to open the doorways to new dreams and possibilities.
As we start the new year, I pray that we all have a spirit of patience, excitement, and trust. Patience knowing that things will happen in His time. Excitement knowing that good things are ahead! And most of all, trusting in Him through every single thing.
I have said it before, and I will say it again. His plans are always always always bigger and better than ours! Take courage, and trust in Him always ;)
I hope you continue to have an amazing week, and a lovely start to this New Year!
Until next time,
Amy Kate <3
