Saturday morning found me with one completed Baudelaire and one skein of fugitive sock yarn. Saints preserve me, I think I’m going to have to clean the house… or start another pair of socks while I wait for the yarn to reveal itself.
Since procrastination is something of a specialty of mine, I decided it was the perfect time to gather all my WIPs in one place:
What you see there are three lace shawls and a cardigan.
Here, lemme show you, starting with the oldest project
This is Wisteria Garden, the second project from Year of Lace 2009.
I’m working the edging now. Twelve stitches and six rows, back and forth and back an forth and…
Whenever I get tired of it, I spread it out like this. Then I smile happily and do another repeat.
This is Centrino, aka The Big Red Blob, the third project from Year of Lace 2009. (No shellauw, you didn’t miss the finish of this one)
This has been at the same point for several months. About ¼ turn to go, then it’s on to the border. Back and forth and back and forth and… I’m sensing a trend!
Then there’s the Waves in the Square shawl:
This is written for fingering weight, and I’m using Malabrigo Sock for it. Oh, so veryvery soft! A friend of mine (Hi Kate!) gave me the pattern in a swap that we had, and I couldn’t resist it any more.
What you see there is the slip-stitch seam. I’m working the waist decreases, and soon it will be time for the tucks. I have high hopes for this cardigan… chief among them that it will actually fit the person I’m knitting it for. Which is myself. I’m measuring obsessively and checking my gauge over and over again. Wish me luck!
Now then… WHERE is that skein of Happy Feet?
