WIP Wednesday

Ok, I know it’s Friday but I wanted to start doing a post each week (to fill in between FO’s) and show you what I have on the needles. I’m trying to be really good right now and not start/work on too many projects at once.

After my last post I finally decided on a pattern I found on Ravelry that was very similar to Boheme but it had cables on it. It’s the Cables and Garter Cardi found here on Ravelry. I love the cables on this but I didn’t feel like knitting cables, so I’m changing things up a little and making the bottom part a lace pattern. The pattern is from a free leaflet I got in Hobby Lobby. I’ll have to scan or take a picture of it to show you later.  Here’s how the top is looking so far.  And I’m just using ‘I Love This Wool’ from Hobby Lobby for it.

Also on the needles is ‘Citron’.  I cast on for this at the end of August using the lovely lace yarn I ‘won’ from Amanda many months ago.

I’m trying to concentrate on the green top now, so Citron has been put aside. As soon as I finish the top I’ll pick this up and finish it before I cast on for anything else! Well, that’s not exactly true, I am thinking of joining in with the Kristen’s Mystery Sock KAL this year, and that starts on Oct 1st. No matter where I am with these two knits I WILL be casting on for those . . . . but first I gotta find some sock yarn! That means searching on Ravelry or online because my LYS has closed and I don’t want any ‘sock’ yarn from Hobby Lobby or Michaels. I want some ‘real nice, fancy’ sock yarn ;-)

If any of you have any in your stash that you’d be willing to sell, by all means let me know! Is anyone else joining in with the KAL?

Are you looking for sock yarn all one colour or varigated?

Thanks for checking in on me! Your knits are coming along beautifully too!

Ally Johnston said...

Great strategy. I am trying to work on one project a day to ensure they all progress.

Yay! The red laceweight is looking fantastic! I've looked at Citron loads but always bottle out at the thought of those ridiculously long rows! You're a braver woman than me. :)

I love the Citron pattern too, and have the perfect yarn to cast one on. It's just a matter of time!

Hi Denise, thanks for popping into my patch all the way from TX. Sounds like you had a more sophisticated doggy than ours. Ours is a clockwork dog that sits up and begs but doesn't bark. Love your knitwear by the way, what a talented lady you are.
