Here are the projects I’m currently working on.

Shadow Box Socks by Curious Handmade from The Curious Handmade Sock Society 5

Ravelry Project Page

Needle: US0 32 inch circular

Size: Small

Modifications: I will do an eye of partridge heel, because that fits my heels better than the standard sl 1, k1 heel flap. I love Curious Handmade’s toe decreases, so I will keep those.

I started these socks when I started rewatching The Gilmore Girls Season 1 almost two years ago! I watched the first season when it aired and just never continued on with it. When the new episode came out, it got me motivated to restart and watch the entire series. When I get back to watching it, I’ll pick these up again.

Skyline Wrap by Curious Handmade from Knitvent 2021

Ravelry Project Page

Yarn: Stress Knits advent calendar yarn from 2020

Needles: US6

Modifications: None

I LOVE this wrap! This has been on my needles for far too long. I’ve enjoyed picking this back up. Stacy from Stress Knits does an amazing job with color. Every skein is so, so pretty, and it was a lot of fun pairing up the skeins for the entire wrap. I have 3 more 2-color sections and the 1-color border and then I’m done!

Little Paddocks Socks by Ambrose Smith

Ravelry Project Page

Yarn: Sewrella Yarn 4-ply Class Sock in Thunder Railroad for the body and Wildest Ride in the Wilderness for the cuff and heel

Needles: US0 32 inch circular

Size: Small

Modifications: None, unless you count the color change in the cuff and heels. I might also change the toes, but the jury’s still on that. I will replace the toe decreases in the pattern with my favorite toe decreases.

I started these socks while I was flying to Walt Disney World for the Princess Half Marathon weekend in 2023. They’ve been cast to the side for a while. When I finish one of the other pairs of socks, these will be back in business!

Sunset Skies Shawl by Curious Handmade from The Shawl Society 4

Ravelry Project Page

Yarn: Sweet Sparrow Yarns Nuthatch Hatchling Mini Set, HauteKnitYarn McQueen Silk Sock in Golden Evening, and Sweet Sparrow Yarns Gosling in Strega Nona (the main color)

Needles: US6

Modifications: None

This is another project that has been on my needles for a while. I started this in 2022! I chose these yarns because I love the color progression in the minis set. It only needed a little of the golden yellow color from HauteKnitYarn to round out the color changing sections. I had been looking for a good project for this Strega Nona colorway. It’s just so pretty, I couldn’t make it into socks or something that would get a lot of wear and tear. It’s going to be so pretty when it’s done and blocked!

No Frills Sweater by PetiteKnit

Ravelry Project Page

Yarn: Little Fox Yarn Little Mo in Petal and Little Fox Yarn Vixen in Mallow

Needles: US2.5 & 6

Size: XL

Modifications: None!

This was my birthday cast on in 2022. It is so soft and snuggly, it’s a joy to work on. I have separated for the sleeves, and I’m working on the body now. I probably have about five inches to go on the body and then I’ll start the hem. I’m very excited to wear this! This color will be so easy to wear with anything in my wardrobe.
