2 for 1

After admitting to my numerous WIPs last week I’ve decided that the best way to get through them all and still enjoy a new project every now & again is to “allow” myself to cast on one new project for every 2 WIPs that I complete/frog.


Finished Objects this week (technically I think 2 were off the needles last time):

I finally got some buttons for the girl’s pastel rainbow cardi.

I got the buttons in a pack from Spotlight.

The Noro vest has been blocked. This is a Drops pattern, “Take Me To Spain”.

The third FO is Tequila Sunrise, knit in a gradient yarn from Purple Fleece. The pattern is a combination of Morgentau (for the main body) and the edging from Lavish Cape.

3 finished objects – does that mean I can cast on 1 and a half new projects??

Only one new cast on this week: The Joker and The Thief.

I’m using yarn that was custom dyed for me by Ozifarmer’s Market.

This week I worked on the Everly Vest by Patricia Breakstone, using a 100% llama yarn by Fibras Andinas that I received in a kickstarter. Gorgeous soft yarn with the best labels.

I also worked a few more rows on Milano by Carol Sunday.

My Feather and Cloud cardi by Veera Välimäki is undergoing some ‘refreshing’. I decided that the 3/4 sleeves really don’t suit when I have long limbs – it just looks like my sleeves are too short. So I’ve frogged the ribbed cuffs and added more length to each sleeve – 7″ in total.

Video podcast this week is Nathan Taylor, the Sockmatician.
