Here are the 2 projects that I've finished:
The first was Magpie
This was a lot of fun to knit, and it can be worn as a scarf, a shawlette, or even a shrug if you fold it in half and add snaps to the narrow ends for sleeves. I love working with beads and the construction of this project was fascinating!
The second successful project is blocking as I type. It's Magnify - a lovely shawl knit from a yarn called MerGoat Lace, a blend of merino wool and cashmere.
Lots of beads on this one. I learned to use a beading needle with this project which makes placing beads a lot simpler.
I've also knit Magnify, a lovely pale green cowl, but that's the project I have to fix. I still need to do Magmatic which is a gorgeous scarf. I will be learning how to steek (a knitting skill where you actually CUT your knitting!) and making a twisted fringe.
I reluctantly decided that I couldn't join the 2015 M Club. Finances are tight, and I have about 10 other projects in my knitting queue to finish first. And I started to get a little stressed because I don't have a lot of knitting time, and despite the fact that there only self-imposed deadlines, I didn't like not being finished with one project before the next one started!
So that's what's been on my needles all year!
