I waited so long with this post from last week that it's Wednesday again and not late! And who ever said procrastination was bad?
I finished book six and seven of the Anne of Green Gables series and just today started the eighth and final book! I'll be a bit sad when they are done! My kindle version is boring so here is the image from Amazon!
I'm continuing to make progress on my Lotus Blossom Tank but I don't have an updated picture. Nearly done with the lace. Now I know the rest of the tank is where the real work of modifications are going to begin. Lots of thinking, though fortunately it will all be stockinette so I may yet finish in a reasonable time.
I thought I'd resurrect my habit of doing WIP posts. That said, I've decided not to post the old ones from several years ago as it's just too depressing! :)
I started a baby hat, it was too big. I decided to make two for siblins but now I'm out of this beautiful, one of a kind yarn. I know I have some great yarn to make matching hats but must dig around in the stash for it!
My design attempts continue. I decided I would do this double knit and worked on this some more only to realize a portion of it is just too large! Argh! I'm going to finish this attempt so I have some good measurements and then attempt to gird up the courage to try a fourth time.
I don't think I've worked on my O.W.L.S. sweater since early spring! I'm at the point where I'd need to knit sleeves and join them to the body. I have a sneaking suspicion that it's too large and just can't bare the thought of it.
I cast on for a size large enough for my chest, but I think it's going to result in the back being too large and thus the lace panel won't be shown to best advantage. I love the yarn, Madelinetosh DK, so I'm undecided if I'm going to finish or frog so it sits forlornly.
This WIP has been languishin even longer! I started Schooner when I first got to Hawaii thinking it would be a good nursing cover. A couple points:
1. Why did I think alpaca would make a good cover, especially in humid Hawaii?!?
2. I don't use nursing covers
3. If I did, one full of holes from lace wouldn't be that useful.
But it's so rustically beautiful with the undyed natural alpaca, I want to believe I'll go back and finish it.
So there you have it! Those are the WIPs I'm willing to admit to! My Sister's Knitter is going to be having a WIPs C/KAL if you'd like to join us!
