I’ve been blogging for about 2 weeks and I keep looking around all the other blogs about knitting and crochet and crafting (thank you bloglovin) and all the WIPs people are working on, so I’m diving into my WIP stash…yes, I may have a stash of WIPs. So we are going to take a look at them.
Up first is my unfinished Tumbling Bunny. I took a class at Sophie’s back in March with Kirby & this is as far as I got that day. It was right in the middle of when I was knitting my 1/2 Log Cabin Blanket for Baby Whittington, who has since arrived 🙂 Hopefully I can pick this up and finish it in the next few weeks!
This is my Follow Your Arrow Shawl I tried to do as the mystery KAL a while back. We can see how well I actually “knit-a-long” with this one. It’s in some gorgeous Ella Rae Lace Merino in a teal.
This is an abomination. It was supposed to be a crazy cable in some alpaca. It’s frogged. I want to use the yarn along with the CEY Ariosa to make a scarf for my cousin Lauren. It keeps getting pushed to the back of my knitting bucket because I haven’t found a pattern I want to knit with it.
This is a cool drop stitch scarf I started also in a class a couple years ago in Memphis at Rainbow Fibres. This is in some gorgeous Noro Silk Garden Lite. Here’s my rav link.
I started these in a Little Pleasures group at Hank of Yarn in Southaven, Mississippi. I didn’t love the colors to work it up in, but I was excited about my first fair isle project and my first pair of mittens. We can see how much I got done in the class setting, but no homework…maybe one day I will return to these.
These are just some basic socks I’ve got going in Pagewood Farms Denali. I love the colors and the softness of the yarn, but I am annoyed at the brass tips of my Addi Lace points. They have a yucky smell and it makes me not want to knit with them…Plus these are for me and as you can see, every project I start for me is generally something that takes a while.
This is my Wine Country Cowl for my friend Michelle. It’s coming along nicely on the US 17 needles. I’m hoping to have it finished and blocked before I leave to see her next week.
This is the fun color change scarf for my friend Jabes. Also a project I’d like to have done next week. One more thing I should be working on instead of browsing blogs 🙂
This is a scarf I started for my husband in February when I bought this skein of Mountain Colors that looked manly! I thought initially I’d make him a hat, but my gauge was off and I got real frustrated real fast so plan B: man scarf.
This is the Skinty Stripe Scarf from the 5KCBWDay1. She’s a tough one to work on because her yarn is so thin and the needles are US 5. Plus I’m still in the increasing stage and I really don’t want to count the stitches. She is very soft though.
And there’s still the Never Ending First Project. At least I’ve moved this one to my car and I do occasionally work on it when I get to work early or if I’m stuck in traffic or at a train. It’s growing. Slowly.
And there is this bag of beauty. That’s 11 skeins of Tahki Cotton Classic for the Pickle’s Midsummer Baby Blanket for another baby on the way.
So that’s 11 WIPs. That I should be actively working on. And I’ve got the yarn, needles, and pattern ready for at least 3 more projects. Then people keep having babies and birthdays. It all just stacks up. Does this happen to any one else?
v’s & bumps,
