Halfway There

July 15, 2009

Today is the middle of my month-long struggle against the WIP. I am happy to report that not only is half the month over but half of my WIPs have been conquered.
I originally listed 8 WIPs that I wanted to get off my needles this month. I am happy to say that as of today four of those WIPs have been beaten into submission. You have already seen Hey Teach and Firestarter. Here are my latest FOs

Another Bath Set
Raindrops on Roses

This one have been OTN since September. Not a world record for knitting speed on this project. But it is complete and ready for gift giving.

Prince of Wales Socks

Just cannot deal with this Black Hole light absorbing yarn. It is also splitty so the combination has made for endless hours of frustration. Time to set this yarn free.

Here is an update on the remaining 4 projects

  1. Mystery Stole 3. Now 75% complete. It is moving along very nicely. I hope to have it ready to block by the weekend. I decided not to rip back and change the transition rows for two reasons. 1. I didn’t want to recondition lace weight yarn. 2. I lost the pattern for the variation for the alternate transition. I am thinking that eyelet row is not as bad as I had originally thought.
  2. Big V Vest. Back is complete and Left front in progress. Pretty fast knit so I might actually complete it by the deadline. I have been reserving this for TV and travel knitting
  3. Potmatomus Socks. Still were they were. Haven’t started working on this one yet. Worried that I will have to recondition yarn to reknit the section that I plan to rip.
  4. Eggplant sweater. Still were they were. Haven’t started working on this one yet. Still dreading that tubular cast off.

Princess Buttercup also completed another project. She made a scarf for her doll Amanda.

Amanda is rocking that scarf

But the sheep likes it too

When I wasn’t knitting or reading for the summer reading program at the library, I have been sewing. Here is a dress I sewed for Princess Buttercup
