WIP It Good

I managed to find the completed Point Lobos Hat and have a photo for you. I used Noro Silk Garden in color 251. The hat was so easy to make, and so quick. This would make nice last minute gifts for Christmas, birthdays, etc.

My normal way is to not have a lot of WIPs at one time. Something seems to have happened to me lately, though, because I have a ton of things going on! It seems I cannot stop casting on.

Here's the Spiral Nebula shawl for my grandmother. This is supposed to be a Christmas gift.

This Stormwater Scarf is for me. I got the Handmaiden Sea Silk in a swap. I think the color is Lily Pond or something like that. It makes me think of Monet and this painting.

This Chevron scarf was intended to be a travel project for my business trip last week. The pattern is from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. This one makes a nice purse project because it is so easy. I love the colors, too.

I cast on Diamond Fantasy by Sivia Harding just to get me through the lace withdrawals in between clues for MS 3. The yarn was a gift from my last Knitty SP, and I happen to have two more hanks in the same color--plenty for a nice shawl.

Finally, I've caved and am attempting to make myself a SAFF sweater. I don't have time to spin my own yarn for this, and I've had a box of Silk Garden languishing for well over a year now. I give you Klaralund. The color is 232. I debated knitting the body in the round but opted to just follow the pattern this time.

I also have a scarf still in need of fringe and blocking--that should be easy--a Cozy in progress for my brother's girlfriend for Christmas, and my MS 3/Swan Lake stole to block. I've been waiting FOREVER for blocking wires to arrive before attempting to block the stole. The vendor doesn't have on line order and she doesn't take Pay Pal, so this could be a long, drawn out wait. UGH. The wire set looks great, so I hope she'll either respond to my e-mail or the set will arrive soon.

Happy Weekend, Everyone.

Ya know. Reading blogs is dangerous. It makes me want to cast on for stuff. Now I'm thinking I need to get going on my Rowan Tapestry vest in time for SAFF but I just mentioned a KAL to DPUTiger for our Panda yarn and hoo boy.

Beautiful projects. That hat is pretty cool too.
