Here we have another installment of the sporadic (on my part) WiP it Wednesday. I think the idea is to shame you into finishing projects so you’re not showing the same picture every Wednesday for 6 months. Of course you could not show the picture and deny you’re working on anything. But really if you’re at the point, lying to you fellow knitters, well, I think it’s intervention time.
First up the Mini Cardi that we’ve heard so much about lately. I’m done with the arm hole shaping and working my way up. Like it? Want one of your very own? Join the KAL 🙂 Yeah Yeah I know it’s August and hot as hell and you can’t even think of wearing wool. I cast on for this on Sunday, so it’s shame free.
The Simple Throw is still on the needles, it’s too hot to have a big acyclic blanket on my lab, luckily it’s a Christmas gift so there is no hurry. The desire to not have heat stroke over rides all shame on this one.
The Lace Tank , well it’s sort of on hold because I only have one set of size 6 tips for my KnitPicks options and I took them to use in the Mini Cardi. Yes I realize with the weather and what not I should focusing on this because it’s something I can actually wear. ha ha ha. I am the Queen of Denial. If I knit for Fall, Fall will come. Right? RIGHT?!?! 😉 ok fine slight shame.
Along those same lines we have Clapotis , in which I come very late to the party. Let’s call it fashionably late, shall we? No need for even more shame. This is going to warm and lovely when done. I’m only worried it will shed on my clothes, I envision wearing it over a black top, so every little strand will show. *le sigh* I’m happy with my yarn choice (Andean Silk from KnitPicks) but a little worried I wont have enough yarn to make it as long as I’d like. How much does this stretch when blocked?
Barely started, can it really even be called a WiP? The Feather and Fan Scarf from Fashionable Projects for the New Knitter in Cascade 220
And here comes the unavoidable shame part. I still have not finished the straps for Mentionable . I should be wearing this gorgeous top. It seems ridiculous that this isn’t done jsut because of the straps. I’m going to go by Joanns to see if I can find something suitable to sew on for straps. Any suggestions?
