My crafting continues to be my escape from some of what has been going on around me, and I am glad that I have it. I haven't got a lot of projects finished in 2021 but at least I know that I have been able to enjoy some time doing the things that I love doing. I continue to cross stitch, knit and crochet and seeing projects at least moved forward a little makes me happy. I am not sure what 2022 has in store for me, but I do know that I would like to continue to see a bit of progress on my various projects and maybe even see some of them get closer to a finish before too long.
Pashmina shawl - this project didn't get a lot of attention this past week, so there isn't much of a change on it. I am still trying to decide how long I want this, so that is something that I am going to be doing in the next week. I love working on this project as it is a very easy pattern to do. The only thing I need to do with this project is count the number of rows that I have done.
This coming week I hope to be able to spend some time working on this shawl so that I can get it closer to a finish. If things go well, I might be able to finish at least one more of the colours and then decide if it is long enough or if I could add more stripes to it.
I do have enough yarn to make this shawl longer, but I also need to make sure that I don't make it too long so that it isn't uncomfortable to wear. I think after this next colour I will check the length and then determine how much longer I want to make the shawl.
I am using the same floss colours that I use for Krozwyrd so that they can hang together. I hope to have this one done before too long, as I also have other ideas of projects that I want to get stitched up before too long.
Plans for 2022 - I do have some plans for next year, and they are very simple. I have a few cross stitch projects that I would like to get done, so those are going to be worked on when I have the time. For knitting and crocheting, my plan is to continue to work on using up some of the yarn that I have and see what I can get finished. My other crafts such as English Paper Piecing will also get worked on, so now to see how things go moving forward.
I hope everyone has had a good holiday so far, and now we have a week when things might slow down a little, and maybe we can find a bit more time to do the things that we love doing. For me, it is the time of year when I need to finish up some work for our business and get things organized for the following year.
I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and all the best in 2022. I will see you again in the new year.
