WIP’s in Active Rotation:
Dancing Crayons Poncho: Please, please don’t laugh. Or, go ahead and laugh, I’m glad to provide some amusement. I started this project
Status: I finished the knitting literally years ago and stopped at the point of selecting and sewing on buttons. Let’s see a show of hands, how many of us have stalled at the buttons?
My squares are a bit larger than the pattern’s, and consequently the fit is droopy and awkward. I’m lukewarm on the mix of nearly novelty yarns with the sturdy Montera, though, damn this thing is warm and my house is chilly. Still, I’ve felt the weight of this unfinished project on my conscience for far too long. So, I’ve ripped out the button band, and picked-up/cast-on for one more square that will make it a symmetrical, super-warm, around the house wrap.
Goal: Before leaving for NC on Sunday, finish the new square and continue the attached i-cord around it. Weave in the rest of the ends. Wear in secret.
Hypoteneuse Stole: Simple, easy knitting, geometric lace, great for travel. Goes quickly in Silky Wool.
Status: At repeat 13.5 of 18.
Goal: This will be my travel knitting to NC and back.
MadTini Sock Two: Pattern from Sock Madness, knit in Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock.
Status: The bane of my knitting existence. I have a mental block the size of a train car about these socks. I cannot tell you why because I do not know. Second Sock’s ribbing and 4.5 repeats of 8 on the leg done.
Goal: Finish the leg.
Bird in Hand: Kate Gilbert’s pretty stranded mittens, knit in Berroco Ultra Alpaca. MMMmmm.
Status: First mitten started and halfway up the thumb gusset.
Goal: Honestly, I don’t know whether I’ll have time to work on this in the next week or not. It’s fun, and an enjoyable knit. I’m not avoiding it, but I want to clear the old WIP’s first.
Rambouillet: Spinning the second 2oz of fiber from Wooly Wonka trying to match the first 2oz spun in June.
So, I’ll have enough for Mittens, Anne.
Status: Spun the first bobbin.
Goal: Spin the second bobbin and ply before I leave for NC.
WIP’s on Time Out:
Secret of the Stole: Ripped and reclaimed the yarn and beads.
Mystery Stole 3: Ripped and reclaimed the yarn and beads.
Tangled Yoke Cardi: Abandoned, though I may work the garter rib and cable pattern into the shaping of an EZ EPS.
Resisting so far casting on for the Spring Surprice Shawl [sic].
PS: Format completely borrowed from How The West Was Spun.
