My ESK Q3 project is officially complete. The challenge was to use one of the many of the yarn colorways dyed exclusively for ESK. Bonus star if you used 2 exclusives in the same project.
These two colors were part of the Under The Sea colorways – the variegated is Kelp Forest and the green is Wakame – both Squoosh Fiberarts Beefcake Sock yarn.
With the submission of this project I will have achieved the level in the Yarnathon I was striving for with points and stars – MVP – so I think I will be picking up some of my WIP that have been languishing. Some of chose could still earn me add’l badges since they are ESK yarn projects but I also have a couple sweaters I’d like to get finished.
Of course there is a badge for placing a yarn order on your birthday and since today is my birthday I can’t help but earn that badge, right?!
These are the colors I’m planning to order to make a fade-style sweater. Since most of my sweaters are fallish colors, this will be a nice change.
Now to get a little bit of tidying up done before my grocery store delivery arrives. The weather has finally turned nice – upper 70s and not humid – so I may see later how many mosquitoes are lurking on my patio. I’m hoping it may be safe to sit out there and knit for a while later since I haven’t really been able to enjoy the quiet outside with all the heat and humidity and rain this summer.
