My basket is full…

This year I have not yet made a single cross stitch… I have been knitting…

My country now is on our second lockdown… deaths and cases have surged in the last 15 days… it is very sad…

I decided to add some of my work and progress (WIP’s) and finished pieces into a basket.

I need to fully finish some pieces from the basket above. I need to stitch some of them since I have projects with little stitching to do. And of course I need to add some new stuff to the basket!

Next Saturday I will show you one of the pieces of the basket!

This year I knitted a hat for my husband and I am knitting my first sweater, photos coming soon.

But I will share some knitted pieces from last year, a shawl and socks.

This shawl is my version of Age of Gold by Joji Locatelli. I used a gray colour for the main colour (yarn by Ovelha Negra Victoria, colour number 33) and the border is pink (yarn by Ovelha Negra Victoria, colour number 001). I did a bad job, per usual, blocking this piece, the border needs some fixing. There are more photos on my Ravelry page.

I did manage to knit ten pairs of socks, two pairs for my husband and eight for me!

From left to right: Meias TPC by Cristina Ferreira; Fresh Air socks by Karalee Harding and Dreaming of Paris socks by Joji Locatelli. All the information about the socks are on my Ravelry page too.

It’s all for today! Thanks for your visit! Be safe! See you soon!
