Lately I’ve been working on my first baby quilt, a high contrast navy blue and white herringbone quilt. It is HSTs for days, but it’s coming along nicely.
I meant to start my Christmas sweater back in April… and just started it last week. Now the question is, will I finish it in time to wear on Christmas Eve?
5KCBWDAY1 – A Day In the Life: Describe a day in the life of a project that you have made, or are in the process of making. This post is from the perspective of a hat I’m knitting currently.
Despite my tendency to jump from project to project for the sake of something new and exciting, I’m making an effort to pick up and finish some of those old, forgotten projects. Lately I’ve been working on a two-year-old pair of Froot Loop socks, and am making good progress! One down, one to go.
This simple ribbed hat is coming along nicely, and should actually be finished in time to not be a late birthday gift for it’s lucky recipient!
In true Katie fashion, I always have to start new projects even though I still have some sitting around languishing. I actually started this on the airplane to Los Angeles where I attended my uncle’s beautiful wedding, but since my flights were at 6am (an ungodly hour that I hate seeing) I didn’t get much done due to falling asleep. So I’m only two pattern repeats in so far, but that’s more than enough for a photograph!
This week I’m sewing a Two Zip Hipster bag from fabrics out of Timeless Treasures “Bright Lights, Big City” collection. It’s going pretty well, except for a seam allowance disagreement that my sewing machine and I had.
I’m participating in the current KAL at my LYS, and we’re knitting a lovely long cardigan called Cassis!
It hardly counts as a WIP when I’m only 6 rows from completion and the picture is from before I seamed and picked up ribbing, but this week I’ve started (and will finish) a Something Lacy shrug out of Cascade Ultra Pima.
I went to the yarn shop to get a ball of yarn wound, and came home with more yarn than I walked in with. Raise your hand if you saw that one coming!
