Wanted: Another Pair Of Hands

Either that or the willpower to not begin new projects before I finish old ones!

So, the WIP’s that I ‘fess up to – there are others in my work room – Moorland and Dahlia cardis are coming along nicely. I hope to have Moorland to the shoulder seaming by the end of the year. Dahlia got a lot of love this weekend and I’m in the home stretch of stocking stitch to finish the left front.

Noro Bias Scarf and Bellydance! Socks (Jingle socks) are seeing some progress but I’m tempted to hide them in the workroom too! The thrill has worn off and they aren’t for gifts so… I started something new.

I’m working the Morlynn Shawl in a combination of Lang Mille Colori Sock & Lace and Cascade Heritage Sock. I’ve renamed this the Tandoori Tikka Tumeric Shawl for the colours – way outside my comfort zone usually but these ones together are beautiful I think.

These are the skeins, no progress photo just yet. I’m into section A and have done the calculation (gasp! I did!) to make it a little larger and use up the maximum amount of yarn from each.

Progress photo tomorrow and hopefully at least one finished project – the socks and scarf are so close to done!

 

Beware The Moor(land)

I couldn’t resist the call, my Moorland Cardigan is most persuasive. I think it’s the yarn. Like kitten fur and the soothing blue.

Not the best lighting at 5:30 in the morning but here in the wilds of the “Frozen North”, we are already on Daylight Savings Time and I’ll be stuck at work during the sunshiney hours for the next couple months! I’ve made it to the armhole shaping and happy that my tension doesn’t appear to have changed since I last picked this up. Two years is a long time to be in WIP purgatory 🙂
