I haven't done this in a few months so I thought I'd see where I was at.
3. Oakland Athletics supporter scarf. I've been making a lot of progress on this. I want to have it ready for September's games so I've been working on it between games. There has actually been a lot of progress since this picture was taken two weeks ago.
4. Gnomes tripped in the forest (these socks). Done!
6. Sag Harbor Shawl. Done!
7. Green Tea Raglan. Do you think if I reblock it, it will fit? Probably not. I may have to frog it. Maybe I'll keep the sleeves and just try to reknit the body? What do you think?8. Mystery project #1. This was the Luminous Scarf and it's done!
9. Mystery project #2. This became partner's successful Christmas Koolhaas.
10. Mystery project #3. This was Koolkaas for Boy #2 and is done!
11. Mystery project #4. See WIP project 9 above. Dum da dum. Nothing to see here. Move along.
12. Sue Trout hat. - Done!
13. World War II watch cap - Done!
14. Felted slippers (rav). Well, the one completed slipper is still around. So, apparently there is a person that will fit in these. I really need to get on these... of course, our washer seems to have gone on strike today, so it won't be felted any time soon.
15. January dishcloth KAL. Done!
16. Mountain View Cardigan.
What? You didn't really think I'd bury a true progress shot in this post, did you? This is a shot of the back that I took while we were in Mt. Shasta. I'm pleased with the lace definition. Don't worry, there is more progress than this photo, but work has slowed considerably.
17. So this WIP should have been in here back in January, but I had forgotten all about it. Back when I crocheted, I used to take part in the occasional square exchange. Basically, the colors and size of square was set and each person makes 16 - 24 squares and mails them out. There were usually about 6 colors and there was no requirement on using all the colors, how much to use et cetera. The only required color was the outside edge so the squares could be easily put together. This was the square I made:
I was reminded about this when we were cleaning the garage and I found all my squares from the last exchange. A fall blanket, all I need to do is crochet my squares together. Of course, the squares are 12x12 inches square and this was a 24 square exchange, so there is a bit of yarn involved... This is the stack of squares on a kitchen chair.
18. I'm traveling to D.C. next week. Third time this year. I used to get a lot of reading done during airplane flights, but now it's knitting. I'm going to take two different patterns. One will probably be a shawl, if I can get gauge. I really want to make Wandering the Moors.
19. The second project is a small design that has been rattling around in my head. I think I've figured out the last bug, so I'm going to try to do it while I'm in D.C. It's in a cotton yarn, so I think it will make sense in humid D.C.
So, a surprisingly few number of WIPs. I think I've actually completed about as many of my WIPs as new projects I've started.
Not that I'm under illusions it will stay that way. I bought the Fall 2010 Knitscene. There are so many great patterns I want to knit. I love the thalweg socks, bryophyta cowl and mitts - which I'll admit are gorgeous but I doubt I'll ever knit, the typha scarf, xenocryst hat, brise soleil cardigan, northumbria cowl, oscilloscope shawl, dorflinger tee, gwynedd hat, quantoid hat, and balsam jacket. Seriously, if you have Ravelry, it'll be faster just to follow this link and click around. Yeah. All those for eight dollars. A friend just sent an email that she's having a baby girl. She lives in Florida, but I'm seriously considering making the gwynedd hat for a little girl. That's not crazy, right? And, since I started this update, a guy at work found out his wife is pregnant. I guess I'm getting the random pregnant woman I asked for!
