The following FO was my oldest WIP in my knitting basket, steady but slowly I added row after row, until I finally ran out of yarn. This was very hard to photograph, in fact this is the only picture worth showing at all. As much as I loved the design, I'm glad it's done. Since starting this project I started and finished 22 others, so I never got to memorize this stitch pattern. I had to look at the print out especially for the edge part, which it makes this scarf so lovely.
pattern: Theresa of Knituition, link on the side bar
yarn: Rowan wool cotton, 50/50%, 50g 123 yds, 5 balls (this was yarn I got from Karen)
size after blocking: 14" x 80"
start-finish: August-November 2007
Although I LOVE the pattern and liked knitting with Rowan wool cotton very much, I think it was a poor choice combining those two.
No sooner had I pushed in the last pin to block the scarf (I found a dropped stitch by the way, had to fix that), had I cast on for my next project. By the way, I was not even WIPless for a minute. Had cleared all the "old" stuff off my plate, when several others where already waiting in line. Funny thing though, those are not projects, which I had been longingly waiting to cast on for at all, oh no. These are all new ones:
Here's the Yuletomten in progress:
The next one was totally unexpected, but very welcome: Mona Schmidt of Knit Stricken! brought forth the November Mystery Socks, >which I started and finished the first clue off. This doesn't really count, because I have to wait in between for new clues, so I'm free to do other stuff. I just know that this mystery sock will be wonderful, as I like all her designs. Thanks to Pat who had a link on her blog, I found out all about it. Oh, and I'm using Jojoland Melody for these socks. Honestly this yarn is bugging me quite a lot. It splits so easily, and it's quite harsh. I know from former experience, that it softens a little with a bath, but you have to suffer through it, while knitting. Hope the color turns out nice.
And there's Ripples socks designed by Anni Design for the Sockamania Club KAL, the November design. I didn't knit any socks in October, and felt quite sock starved. These I can knit on until they are done. I'm using Trekking XXL from stash for these.
