This Thursday I will be going on vacation. There will be no sewing and no spinning while I am gone (well, maybe a drop spindle). As sad as that may be, it gives me the opportunity to sort out my current WIP’s and actually get some knitting done. So, let’s have at it!
OH YEAH! Knitting! I can do that! These gloves are awesome, and will definitely be packed in my bag. Because they are an advanced Christmas gift I don’t need to bust any proverbial balls to get them done. It would be nice to finish them up though, just to have them cleared out. I started these in October 2009!
The throw! Not really knitting, more crocheting. This is definitely coming with as I only have 8 more circles to do. I also think it will be good plane work as last time I went to Europe they TOOK MY KNITTING NEEDLES AWAY. I know. I nearly cried. I had to take them right off of a sleeve! But this time, with a blunt looking crochet hook and some granny looking crochet, I should be safe.
Do you guys know what this is? Anyone? Hrm, not surprising that this may not be at the forefront of your memories. I started it in March of 2006. 2006!!! What the hell?!?! It’s a stole knit out of some beautiful habu yarn. This pattern definitely looks like little spiders on individual webs to me. I had a border picked out and was all set to do that, but then I decided it wasn’t long enough. Until recently, the fortitude to finish this was about nonexistant. I am definitely bringing this with me and sorting it out. Time to get this done once and for all!
The last two lingering UFO’s are meeting the frog pond this week. I am not going to finish them and it’s best I just reclaim the yarn.
Poor Zauberball socks. I love this yarn, but hate it as socks. Something will be done with it, just not this… mess… ugh.
Dear Mr. Lumpy blanket that will never be. I feel bad for pretending like you were going to exist. I’m sorry.
So, that’s it! Other than some mending projects I am all clean. Three things will be coming with me on my trip, and hopefully some make it back as finished garments. I think I may have one more post in me if I have time before I go. There was some last minute sewing and I would love to be able to share it with you before I fly out.
