I finally managed to get pictures together for a Work in Progress Wednesday. This one is extra special because it’s on a Thursday! *crickets chirping in the background* Yeah, I knew it wasn’t as funny as I thought it could be.
You may remember me mentioning several posts ago that I was going to start focusing on one project at a time to make sure I’m able to get them all finished. Anyone who knows me and has seen the ADHD in action knows that that lasted maybe a week. So currently I’ve got four going on, one is just about finished.
First up is the hat that I’m working on for my sister.
You may notice that the hat looks just about done.
The body of the hat is done. I still need to find a good pattern for the flower that is going to go on the side. I had a pattern for one but, after knitting it, it was way too small.
Up next is Emily’s scarf:
I love this colorway
When I first saw this colorway called Nevermore by KnitPicks, I knew that it was perfect for Emily. This is a pattern I created called Dueling Cables. It features two cables twisting in opposite directions and is framed nicely on both sides with wide bands in stockinette stitch. I will definitely add lots and lots of tassels to the ends of this one.
More interior decorating:
First pillow pattern that I have created use KnitPicks new line called Biggo.
This is the first pattern for a pillow that I have created. This is another pillow where one side will be knitted and the other will be a piece of fabric. It’s difficult to see the pattern too much in the work because I’ve only completed one repeat. The pillow is edged with stockinette stitch followed by a cable on each side with a pattern called cell stitching in the middle that is a grouping using cabling methods. This is the first time that I’ve used KnitPicks’ new line of bulky weight yarn called Biggo which is perfect for this type of project because it is soft, comfy, and is also washable.
Last, but certainly not least, a pattern called Smitten which is a holiday garland:
This is an awesome pattern that I can't wait to finish and hang up
So this pattern is a really cute pattern that has a bunch of tiny little mittens hung on a set of cords. It’ll be really colorful when it’s done and hung up for the holidays. I have lots more mittens to go plus the cords.
Needless to say, these will keep me busy for a while which works for me. Also, this weekend is the first knitting get together that the one social group I belong to has decided to have and I’m really looking forward to it.
