This was a light month in terms of finished objects.
I only finished two projects this month and I was a little surprised at that. But then I remembered it’s not a race, it’s what I do for pleasure and May was a busy, busy month. And can you all say a prayer for me that I finish the dress for my goddaughter in June? I want to get that baby off of my needles and I think it’s such a cute pattern but it hasn’t tickled my fancy as much as other projects have recently. So what did I finish this month?
- My Colorblocked Cosette: I love this top but it’s been so cold here that I’ve only worn it once. I’m ready to wear all my cotton summer knits. I’m also thinking of knitting this same pattern but using some Berroco Modern Cotton which is a little lighter just to see how it drapes. I’ll keep you posted.
- Test Knit for Alicia Plummer, Bar Harbor: I also did another test knit for Alicia Plummer for an unreleased pattern. I’ll do a full post on this one once the pattern drops (which should be soon). I used Berroco Maya on larger needles and have another lovely breezy top for summer to add to my wardrobe.
Despite only finished two projects this month I think I was pretty productive! Adding to my wardrobe is always a good thing. So what were you able to accomplish this month? And what are you hoping to finish next month?
And and added little note…Saturday marks my second anniversary since I came back to blogging. I can’t believe it has been two years and I thank everyone who comes and reads my little corner of the internet, gives advice, feedback and virtual high fives and hugs. You make this yarn/knitting community really awesome.

Happy Blog Anniversary!
happy blogiversary!!!!! keep it up and the knitting looks beautiful
Happy blogiversary! I love your Cosette tee. Your seaming skills are awesome. ☹️I don’t have any May FO’S.
Happy blogiversary, and I love both of the sweaters you’ve finished. They both seem like they’ll be awesome wardrobe staples!
This was a light month for me in terms of knitting — but a big one in terms of accomplishing stuff with moving, finishing up the academic year, and other life-y things. I always want to be finishing things faster, but as you say — it’s not a race, it’s what we do for fun!
A little late to the party but I’d like to wish you a happy blogiversary! Your blog is what inspired me to learn knitting and I am ever so grateful!
YAY for learning to knit!!
