Bet you didn’t know there was a bottom to rabbit holes. Usually when one ventures into one, there is nearly never a bottom. My particular rabbit hole is the one that had me “Knitting. All. The. Things.” I’m not saying I don’t want to keep knitting all the things, but I am realizing there is a limit. I only have so many sets of needles and so many hours in the day/night to knit. I do need to sleep and eat and work (occasionally) so I am still a kind person. I do suffer from “hangry-ness” on occasion. That feeling where you are so hungry, you are an unbearably angry person. Plus I am married and do need to pay some attention to my darling husband.
Realizing these limitations, I have decided to stop “queuing” things. At least until I get back from Vogue Knitting Live next weekend. I am in the process of looking through my library on Ravelry as well as my physical library and deciding what projects I want to cast on or at least acquire yarn for, comparing it against my queue. I know I shouldn’t be looking at all that with my numerous WIPs, but the trip is coming up and I can’t go into that Marketplace without a plan!!
Plus, I’ve wrapped up a few projects lately. I bet you’d just love to see them!!! Almost as much as I’d like to show them off 🙂
First up is that fun little shawl from the Mother Daughter Knit-along. Technically I finished casting off for this about a month ago, but I just pulled it off the blocking boards a few days ago and wove in the ends!!!!
Next, I also made the pompoms to go on top of the little Reflector Hats I made for Will & Nora. It’s definitely getting cooler and I wanted to be able to give them so they can wear them!!
I bought a pompom maker from Michael’s a few weeks ago. It’s the version made by Boye. So simple to use! I took two strands of the bulky yarn and wrapped them around and around. A little snipping and a little tying and VIOLA! PomPom!
Finally. I’ve cast off.
3 needle bind off for the tops of the shoulders.
I have a whole cake of yarn left. And just a touch of the 2nd cake.
I’ve just to to lay out my Whispers top and weave in the ends. Then I get to wear it!!!!!!
And go on adventures to Chicago. With my mom! For Yarn!!! And Patterns! And Needles!
I’ll try to get in a WIP Wednesday post and if I’m real good, I will have a few more things finished!!
v’s & bumps,

Ooh, Vogue Knitting Live? Sounds brilliant. As does going with a plan. I always spend some quality time with the show guides before going to these things, else you end up with a single skein of something, four of something else and no idea what to do with them.
I love those hats! So cute – simple and effective.
Have fun wearing your top, and enjoy 😀
Thank you!! I’m so excited!!
Have fun in Chicago, I love the finished shawl (ooh that yarn!) and the hats.
Yay! Thanks! I certainly will!
