I track my knitting and crochet projects in Ravelry (an online knitting and crochet community). I have six (6) WIP's: including one (1) that I bought yarn for and have not even casted on for yet and one sewing project that is incomplete.
I figured I would showcase theses projects as to remind myself and my faithful readers what are still outstanding. Yes, I am calling myself out!
I am going to list them from oldest to newest...here we go (I'm going to be hiding under a blanket as to no show my face while you read this)...embarrassing!
Dec 2009, Celtic Knot Sweater:
This is supposed to be a Celtic Knot Sweater from Interweave Knits Winter 2007. Yeah...I was so psyched to buy this, only to never even knit up a gauge swatch. This is what the project should look like when complete...
I love it even today...someday I will start this project. Next:
March 2013, Scrappy Quilt:
My Scrappy Quilt! Each weekend I think that I will work on it, but I don't. I have to sew on my borders, sew the backing and then pin the three layers with the batting in the middle and quilt the top. I have a friend that has a quilting machine that I will arrange a visit when I am at that stage. Ugh...the winter would be a great time to finish this quilt.
March 2013, Cabled Cardi KAL:
I am still deciding whether to unravel or keep knitting. This was not knitted according to the pattern, where I knitted a cable at each interval, but there should be a patch of knitting between each cable. My sister thinks it will be fine if I continue as I have been knitting. I suppose so...I am going to visit in Dec, but I doubt I will be done with this by then. But on the other hand, visiting Mass will be the only occasion in which I will wear it. Whatever...
June 2013, Indecision City (aks Plum Lovin')
This is supposed to be a shawl. I have not even blogged much about it. I'm not in love with it, so I may rip it out at some point and choose another project for this yarn.
This yarn is my alpaca and silk blend. I want a worthy pattern for this yarn. I think I have convinced myself that I will rip it out and start a different pattern with it. Alas...
July 2013, Palm Scrap Afghan
This is supposed to be a WIP, but I have gone past these 4 motifs. I need worsted weight yarn for this and ideally machine washable. I have some wool, but I cannot wash it, and other weights of yarn. I could still use them, I just have not gotten there yet.
August 2013, Romance Shell
I have paused on this project because the yarn is not nice to work with. But I should work on this at the beginning of the year, to ensure it will be wearable by spring. This will be perfect for spring.
I am still doing some Christmas knitting, where those projects will not be revealed until after Christmas, as to not spoil it for anyone, so those are not counted here.
I write this over Thanksgiving weekend and cannot resist the urge to go to Brandon Yarn Boutique and buy yarn for my next project. Buying yarn really is a habit and it is hard not to do it. I clearly do not need any more yarn or projects, clearly....but I love new projects and new yarn and using my ball winder and cataloging the yarn in Ravelry. I need to knock off my Vampire Knits patterns...I think my purchase will include yarn for the Lore Hoodie!
Ooh I can't wait!!!
