YOP Week #44

I hope I got the week # correct! LOL!  I always get it messed up near the end of the year.
Becki, I found this image you created and I love it so I thought I would switch it up a bit.  Thank you!  You always create such pretty ones.
I have a finish this week!  Yay!  My Miss Marple scarf which I highly recommend!  This has to be one of the most enjoyable if not the most enjoyable project I have ever knitted!  I will be making more of these....
 I tried trying it on and taking a picture in the mirror but that didn't work out too well.  It fits great though and I love it and it is sure to keep my neck warm next winter.   I also loved the yarn which was a worsted yarn in a variegated colorway which I will note in my Ravelry project notes when I do them.  It was from Hobby Lobby and is acrylic but so soft and I loved the way the color changed.  Now, what's next?  It's time to start the July birthday presents so you'll have to wait until next week to find out!

I did 3 more squares of the Victorian blanket...........(my current crochet project) which was a past WIP.......

I also worked a bit on my COVID cross stitch.............

and that was it for this week.  I did spend more time on prepping for Stitch Maynia and I have orders in but it was difficult getting floss as everywhere was running out...at least of the colors I needed.  Plus, with the pandemic, shipping is slow as they don't have full staffs and are trying to do social distancing and staggering of shifts with their employees.  So, Stitch Maynia may get off to a slow start this year.  That's okay, I'm sure I have some that I can start.  It starts this coming Friday on May 1st so be sure and stop by every day in May to see what I'm starting!  If the supplies don't show up I will at least show you a picture of it.
I hope you are all staying safe, well and happy and that you have plenty of toilet paper!  I was able to get 4 rolls on my last Walmart order so the hoarders have stopped hoarding hopefully!
Happy Trails!!!

  1. Great job on the Miss Marple. Looks so nice and cozy. You have really done well on getting your squares done. Gosh, I should get mine going again. Your cross stitch is moving right along too. Looking forward to see your stitch mania project. Stay Well.

    1. Too funny that last week you convinced me I was wrong on the week number so I changed it and now you admit you had it wrong....oh what a tangled web we weave! LOL! I wondered where I got the Victorian Lattice pattern from....it was you? I love those squares and no changing colors. You stay well too!

    2. I have been married with my wife for 6 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to Dr Emu. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true.

  2. It's hard to believe May starts on Friday. March and April have been such a blur. And yet, so monumental! I do love the yarn you used for Miss Marple. I'm looking forward to Hobby Lobby opening up again as I'm itching to try some new yarn. That and I just want to be able to walk into a store and buy some simple crafting supplies... Thank you for the mention regarding the graphic, Sam. It's hard to believe it's almost time to start making new ones for a new YOP year. HaPPY WEek Sam!

Hugs ~ Sam

  5. I’ll have to check Ravelry to see how Miss Marple is worn as it is such an interesting shape and hard to tell how big it is, but you sound very happy with it and sounds like it’s going to keep you warm. I can’t believe it’s time for stitchmania again, that’s come round fast. (From my counting and blog titles it was week 43, which puts us in line with week 52 at the last Sunday in June which seems right?).

    1. Thank you! I changed it because of Marsha and then she admitted she was wrong! LOL! I guess I shouldn't doubt myself like that. I;m sorry I didn't demonstrate the Miss Marple very well. There is a pocket that you slide the ends through so it stays around your neck.

    2. Oh that sounds like a good design. Thanks

    Blessings,
