WIP Wednesday

WIP for normal people, FO for me 🙂

First project finished in the new place. Not blocked, the knit stuff is status quo with me but I’m looking forward to getting it blocked. I actually have the room to do these things now!

A peek before blocking.

Why, why, why…? Despite my best efforts, my toes always seem to sneak into photos… No mean feat – happy coincidental turn of phrase – for size 6’s to be hogging the limelight. At least my polish matches…

Make It Monday

For this week’s Make It Monday I made… A BIG MESS!!

Moving Day looming...

Moving Day looming…

Who made this big mess?!

Who made this big mess?!

I sort of made a better mess with the Spiral Pram Blanket. The last bits and bobs are now unknit and about to be reclaimed in the last rounds. Unfortunately, I don’t have a longer cord to pop the blob on to for a photo. It is looking pretty in person and will make a cozy lap-sized blanket when complete. My last project at my old place and somewhat symbolic.

I’ve come full circle.

Truly blessed.

Spiral Stashbusting Madness

And… Might as well make this latest round of rabid spammers work to find a place to dump their crap!

Holy crap! They come in waves like a Tsunami of Stupidity – get a life!

Anyway…

Two progress shots of my Spiral Pram Blanket follow, it’s growing so quickly in this early stage that I’m already onto my 80cm cord and soon to move again! From a stashbusting standpoint, this is going great. I’ve worked all the half balls, the bits and bobs and the next join will be to that poor, old sweater that just didn’t make the cut. As a blanket though, I think this project will be a win 🙂

WIP Wednesday

And happy 600th post to me!

Who’d have thought? There are days this blog feels far more chore than hobby; for the most part though, I enjoy sharing here. I know the sharing certainly keeps me motivated to keep knitting, crocheting and learning more about my fibre crafting.

There are WIP’s – there are always WIP’s – with me, it’s just a matter of which ones are active and which ones are hibernating. I’ve managed to get a fair bit of work done on the Jacaranda / Jose Cardi; a miracle what with work and packing and the paperwork for the move! The back is just about ready for the armhole shaping:

And because this is ADD Me, I must have a “Quick ‘N Dirty” project (especially because even the highest quality cottons hurt my hands!) I’ve cast on the “Spiral Pram Blanket” mentioned in a previous post. I’m working this in leftover Noro Silk Garden – the neverending stash of SG – and am loving it so far:
