Here we are for another installment of WiP it Wednesday where I publicly admit the new projects I’ve started (I have a serious case of startitis I want to start at least 2 more but I’ve been restraining myself) and show the projects I’ve been neglecting. See where the shame comes in? For me at least, for you guys it’s good you can point and judge and whisper among yourselves.
Up first the Melon Pattern Scarf from Victorian Lace today. I love this, I love the pattern and I love the yarn, it’s like they were made for each other. I know variegated yarn is frowned on for lace but I like it. I’m not planning to put the edge on it just block lightly and go!
Next the Hemlock Ring Blanket I haven’t picked this up in a week. Not for lack of love, I definitely love it. But it’s not portable and I’ve got a couple of other big projects I’m trying to finish and I’m a bit distracted so I can’t focus enough to work this pattern.
Here we have the Simple Log Cabin Throw that I snuck in without even putting it on my side bar. 🙂 I have two nieces, one will get the throw I showed you last week, one will get this one for Christmas. I’m about half way done with this.
I’m still working on The Chicabean Scarf, but no new pics because I know the recipient reads the blog so it needs to be sort of a surprise. She did pick the yarn so she knows she’s getting something. I love the pattern I’m using for this one, and I’m planning to adapt it to a matching hat. They’ll be Christmas gifts too. Then that’s the end of my Christmas knitting unless I do something small.
The Pinwheel Blanket also intended as a gift. My mom said the best baby blanket she got was circular so I found a pattern for one.
- The Lace Tank – it’s hibernating. It’s hard to focus on a lace top when the weather is cooler and I’m itching to knit sweaters.
- Picovoli – Not really hibernating I just haven’t been working on it but I will.
I’m itching to start:
Oh and one last wip, which really barely qualifies. I have one ball of manos and little bit left over from my mittens, I was thinking a scarf, so I started The One Row Scarf, but I’m not feeling the love. Any suggestions?
