WIP Wednesday

The Katharine Vest failure took the wind out of my sweater-knitting sails, so to speak.

It’s been good for sock knitting, though.

And for the Babette Blanket.

I did finally cast on for a sweater last night, though.

The beginning of Wicked, in Rowan All Seasons Cotton.

WIP Wednesday

I’ve pretty much ignored all of my other projects in an effort to finish the Mitered Square Afghan before spring arrives.

The squares and the edging on three of the sides are done. I’ve just got one more side of the afghan to knit the edging for and it’ll be done! I’m so glad because once this is finished I can get back to my spring knitting.

Two edges needing to be seamed. Noro Kureyon looks very different in garter stitch. To me, anyway.

The other project that has been worked on is the Oak Ribbed Socks.

I’ve turned the heel on the first sock and am just about done with the instep decreases. I really like the colors in this skein of Trekking.

Another WIP Wednesday. Here are my current WIP’s.

First, the Babette Blanket. I finished the fourth 8-round square last week and haven’t worked on it since.

Next, the Oak Ribbed Socks. This is a great basic sock pattern, and Trekking XXL is great to work with.

Here’s the Stained Glass Scarf from Handknit Holidays by Melanie Falick. It was a UFO for a while there, but after finishing the Chevron Scarf, I picked it up again.

The Woolen Cashmere Twinset Cardigan. The Rowan 4-Ply Soft is great to work with. It’s a very enjoyable knit, despite having 350+ stitches per row on size US 3 needles.

And this my favorite WIP.

The Mitered Square Afghan. This afghan is so much fun! It’s at the specified width of 7 squares and height of 9 squares. It’s coming out a bit small for my taste, however, and I’m planning on adding one column of squares to the width and height.

So there’s the WIP update. I hope to have modeled photos of the Central Park Hoodie later this week.

WIP Wednesday

I hope everyone’s having a great week.  It’s been snowing since yesterday afternoon, we have about 10″ of snow and it’s still snowing.  We havent’ had this much snow for about eight years.

 But this post is supposed to be about knitting, specifically my WIP’s. 

 Here’s the first, my Yarrow Ribbed Sock.  I should be able to do the toe tonight and finish sock number one.  I hope I don’t get second sock syndrome with the next one!

And here’s the back of the Central Park Hoodie.  It’s just about 2″ away from being done.

I didn’t think I’d ever like crocheting again, but the Babette Blanket has changed my mind.  This project is a lot of fun – working with the different colors, and using up all that leftover yarn I didn’t know what to do with!

The colors in this square are left over from my Wobbly Circles Tote (Interweave Knits Spring 2006).

This is one of my favorite squares.

These squares come together so quickly and it’s so much fun to put the colors together (I said that already, didn’t I :).

Pretty stack of squares with ends needing to be woven in.

And , I baked a pie last night.

This is Cherry Cream Crumble Pie from Taste of Home. I substituted two 15 oz. cans of dark sweet cherries instead of tart ones, and it was delicious.
