Drops 113-34 Sweater
I just picked this sweater back up on the weekend. I’m working on the first sleeve. If I can keep concentrating on it then I should be able to finish it in the next few weeks.
Veronica Baby Sweater
I finished the Veronica Baby Sweater a while ago. I didn’t blog about it before this week because I’m horrible at taking photos of completed projects. So that’s something I need to work on doing more regularly.
Northern Forest Toe-Up Crusoe Socks
I may have done a few more rows on the Northern Forest Toe-Up Crusoe Socks since I last posted. Not much progress has been made though.
I didn’t work on the Boot Covers this past month.
The Celtic Tote is another project that hasn’t been out of it’s project bag since my last roll call.
Fairly Easy Fair Isle
The Fairly Easy Fair Isle has been blocked. It took about a week to dry. I have purchased the buttons, but I still need to attach them to the sweater. It looks really pretty now that it’s been all blocked out.
Dad’s 12th Socks
For my Dad’s birthday I started a pair of socks for him. The first sock was almost finished when I gifted them to him on August 18th. I’m using Knit Picks Stroll Sport for the first time and I’ve ran out of yarn. I ordered two balls and now these are stalled after the second heel while I wait for the third ball of yarn to arrive. As usual, I’m using Wendy’s Generic Toe-up sock pattern, this time with 64 stitches around and the toe and heel short rowed to 12 stitches.
I started a tank top for myself, when it was nice and warm at the beginning of August, using the Coachella pattern from Knitty and Sirdar Just Bamboo that I picked up at the Victoria Fibre Fest. This was the project I focused on the most during August. This past weekend I joined the body in the round for the bottom and tried it on and it doesn’t fit right. So I frogged it right away and the yarn is going to be in a time out until next spring while I figure out what it wants to be.
Purple Baby Hats
This past weekend I started working on baby hats for the Period of PURPLE Crying Awareness Campaign (details in Saturday’s post). I am using the Baby Squash Hat pattern from 101 Designer One-Skein Wonders for at least the first two hats and a giant ball of lilac Bernat Baby Sport. I’m not sure how many I’ll end up making but my goal is at least 5.
