I enjoy Chatting with Chatters, sponsored by Robbyn on Thursday evenings. I have been sorry to miss the last two weeks.
Apparently, the group in attendance last week decided to Flash their UFOs today (Robbyn at The Yarnpath and Ev at Strings ‘n Things and Colleen at Musings of a Silver Rose).
I wanted to join in, even though I missed the discussion. I really have more WIPs than UFOs. I work a little on each thing... and not much languishes. There are only two UFOs (an acrylic baby sweater and a fancy mohair beginner scarf) that I can think of and I lost light before I could take decent pictures of them.
But, here are the WIPs.
Finally, Fetching! I have had the yarn for AGES and AGES. Finally, after freezing one too many times at my office, last Wednesday I cast on for my pair. Beautiful yarn - the color is fabulous. The picture was close on my monitor, but I think you can't truly appreciate the beauty in a photo!
Moderne, my way! Following my loose understanding of the Moderne Baby Blanket in Mason-Dixon Knitting, I'm using Beaverslide 2-ply fisherman, McTaggert Tweed in Wild Myrtle as the main color, and all the odds and ends of mostly wool yarn in similar (sometimes slightly finer) weight. So far, the biggest section is the McTaggert Tweed, then Rowanspun Aran (brown), Lopi (blue/grey), and Noro Kureyon (multi-colored). The final piece will be about 40" x 40" for the Mother's Day blanket drive for the Afghans for Afghan mentioned in my sidebar. It is currently about 11 x 13.
Socks, Spring Socks... in an unknown, cotton-like sock yarn in "Forget Me Knot", using Susanne needles and a beginner pattern - all provided by my Knitter Tea Swap 2 Pal, Emma. (See this Blog Post about that!)
It is a simple pattern - 2x2 rib cuff, stockinette, heel flap, etc. I separated the skein into two approximately equal cakes and I'm off! This is my easily portable project and goes with me just about everywhere (especially now that I have four colors on my Moderne and haven't found the left over Lamb's Pride Bulky I know I have around here somewhere to keep going on that!).
