WIPs Galore!

IMG_1695 

 

 

These are my WIPs (works in progress).  Some of them.  One of my goals this year is to get organized, so I decided to sort my WIPs and reevaluate if they should be WIPs or should be sent to the frog pond!

So here we go in a project-by-project evaluation!

This is St. Brigid by Alice Starmore in Summit Hill superwash (Kraemer).  It’s staying in the WIP pile for those days when I really need to CONCENTRATE on my knitting (yes, the caps and underlining in necessary on that word; very necessary!).

This is a silk hanky from Abstract Fiber that I started last summer.  It isn’t being frogged, because frogging silk is not fun and just not worth the effort.  But I’m not sure if I’ll finish this as I started (which was as a headband).  Stay tuned for updates on this one.

These are socks. To be specific, they are the April Showers Mystery Sock KAL by Knitter’s Brewing Company. I am making these out of Cascade Heritage. The clues are all released and I will finish them. Sometime. I finished the second sock of the last KAL in January of this year (the KAL started in January of last year). Maybe I can beat my record!

These are also socks. Two pair actually, but they are teaching tools so I’m doing 2-at-a-time in different colors. Then I’ll do the matching socks. The second socks will probably be done for the next class.

This is mitt one of a pair for my niece. They will also be finished. Luckily she works in an office that is usually cold so she can wear them in the summer which is when they will probably be done.

No clue what this is. It’s Tokyo yarn by Feza. Otherwise, I’ve absolutely no clue. It’ll will be frogged.

This will be the Ruched T-Shirt from Interweave. Eventually.

My sister started this. I believe it is the start of a baby blanket. It’s now if my WIPs – she was sneaky about it!

I’m working on a pattern for wool soakers – this is a prototype.  The pattern will be up soon – I think!

This is yarn. Yarn that will be samples for the Master Handknitter program from TKGA. At least that is the plan. I’ll let you know how it goes!

In the fall, my niece brought an idea to me for a sweater. When I have it done, I’ll release the pattern for it also (knit in the round from the bottom up with an asymmetric neckline).

 Last year at the KC Renaissance Festival, we (meaning my BFFs and me) spent a lot of money at A Wolf’s in Sheeps Clothing (aka Th’red Head). This is Amy’s yarn for a shawl. I knit it; didn’t like it – frogged. I knit it again; didn’t like it – frogged. Third time will be charm, so it is sitting in time out while I ponder appropriate patterns.

No clue.  Not sure what it is supposed to be or who cast it on.  I do know that it is supposed to be a store sample for Kraemer’s Fountain Hill Lights.  Stay tuned for what happens to it!

This is Evenstar.  I went into time-out last August and has been there since.  Not because I’m mad at it or it was misbehaving.  We just needed some time apart for my mental health.  We are going to reunite soon.  And since I’m half way through chart 3, hopefully my tension hasn’t changed too much during the intervening 6 months!

And this is the Vernal Equinox Surprise Shawl. It’s our Spring 2013 KAL here at the shop. I was coerced into knitting it (Amberle!). Thankfully because it is beautiful and an amazingly easy lace pattern. Feel free to join us in knitting it – we have a thread on our Ravelry group for pictures and questions. I might even have a prize (hint-hint!) for a randomly chosen participant in the KAL, so you might want to stop by the group and let us know if you are joining in!

Plying practice! This is ongoing, and might be ongoing forever!

This is the luscious silk/merino roving I bought on the Central Kansas Knitters Guild trip to Shephered’s Mill in June last year. I will spin it. Sometime. I tend to spin while sitting outside in the evenings – this requires nice weather because my hands don’t like the cold. So I’ll probably have results sometime in the summer.

And not lastly (because I have another WIP that I don’t have a photo of yet), the crochet.  This is going to be a pineapple doily.  Now that I’ve finished the multiple crochet commissions I had this winter, I’ll have time to work on this again.

And the unpictured WIP is a cowl in marvelous yarn spun by a friend from CKKG.  I’ll post a finished photo when it’s done.

I think that adds up to 19 WIPs.  3 to be undone and new projects chosen for the yarn.  16 WIPs.  Sigh!  Must knit/crochet/spin faster!

    I would be so overwhelmed by that many WIPs. I’m sure you’ll make good use of your “snow day”.
