WIP Wednesday

Before I get into my WIP’s today, I think I need to talk about my completed works!

First is my Hitchhiker scarf.  I know I mentioned it about a month ago but I’m still really excited about it.  I finally got around to taking some better pictures of it to show it off.  I’m still not sure on its final destination so it will sit safely stored away for now, unless I can find an outfit to wear it with.  I’m not one to wear scarves so we shall see.

Then Sunday I finished my hat that I was making from my Lion Brand Ice Cream Yarn.  I could’ve made the body a bit taller but it works out pretty well.  I have been close to finishing it all week but slowed down when I put it on DPN’s for the decreasing.  I need to learn and use the magic loop method.  DPN’s are barely ok, until you get down to those last stitches then I find them extra maddening.  I finished it at Sunday morning coffee with my BFF and she grabbed it up.  I grabbed a quick picture of me wearing it before she took it over 🙂

Also on Sunday evening I finally set down and finished my Star Stitch Scarf that I have been working on for over a year at this point.  I love the way it turned out.  That stitch looks so good with the yarn I got.  I have one in a different color that I made myself a few years ago and its still my favorite winter scarf.  I may gift it at Christmas time this year.  It will go in to “storage” until I decide on a giftee for it.

Now on to my actual WIP’s, which I believe there are only 3 of at the moment.  It’s been a long time since that has happened!

  1.  My Heartland Fiber scarf kit – my purse project since it is simple garter in the round and I can pick it up and put it down without worrying about remembering where I was at
  2. Grandmas shawl.  It’s supposed to be about 17 inches down the middle and I am just past 12 inches right now.  It’s coming right a long, but the rows are awfully long at this point!
  3. My sock knitted in the flat – no progress made on that since whenever I spoke of it last.  I’m still undecided on if I am frogging it or going to keep chugging along.

That is it!  I have the urge to start a baby blanket.  Or a blanket of some sort.  I don’t think i’ve gone this long without one cast on in awhile.  I have some yarn I overbought from the last one I need to go exchange it out for a color I will use.  I hear JoAnn’s has a new house brand of yarn that I should go check out…
