now, i had been really itching to start my stephen west- blue whale shawl ever since i returned from stitches but i had made a deal with myself- i needed to finish some old projects first before diving into "my precious" new scores from stitches west.
while avoiding some chore that needed doing, i decided to go thru my
my icelandic star sweater. almost ready for sleeves.
my some cloudy day legwarmers. a very cute pattern from tiny owl knits. knitting these out of berroco alpaca. unfortunately-the other skein of yarn was not to be found with the project...and i have no clue where it could be. damn.
this is the valeria shawl knitted from rowan scottish tweed. at the point of starting the lace section. the fun part-what was i thinking???
a mystery shawl i never finished but want to so badly!!! i dyed this yarn years ago. damn- i don't even remember the name of the pattern!!!!
a top down mock turtle neck for Liam. gee it may still fit if i keep working on it.
alas, my lovely fairwind sweater that was a knit along with my fiber trash girls. just sitting there in the dark, crammed into a brown paper bag. how could i be so cruel? i know the photo sucks, my camera takes lousy pictures when the battery gets low-it really is beautiful in real life. a honey wheat color. i love you fairwind! i haven't forgotten you! forgive me.
this will someday be an awesome lace capelet. (wiping the tears now)
a baby sweater so old i don't even remember who it was for. crap on me!
oh, and these beauties-look how effin close to being done i am- this yarn i dyed (gads!) too many years ago to even count...they are all naturally dyed yarns too. my first and last try at indigo. turned out great, but was too fussy for me- having deal with ph levels all that...sheesh. i am not a precise dyer.
this fingerless mitt is made from my handspun-the fiber was from cottage creations-love that stuff! can't remember what needle size i used. dang does that mean i'll have to swatch for the second one!
another pair of fingerless mitts. the pattern is called prickly. the yarn is from hazel knits- love that yarn!!!
remember my catamount sweater? no? i guess i forgot about it too. this is one sleeve and the problem is.....i can't find the body-gasp!-horror of horrors!!!!!
here's my tappen zee bartlett sweater -the color is really the color of a barlett pear. it's fabulous. perfect spring sweater....need to wear this soon!!!! hey aren't there little people somewhere that hide during the day and come out at night and finish your projects for you?? where are you????
this is a test knit for plum dandy-rain boot liners.... my head hangs further in shame!!! need to finish these ASAP!!!
my hand dyed, handspun socks....another project so close to completion!
an icelandic vest. started recently, put down because of the rippling seed stitch ribbing.
these are my uva ursi bog socks....knit from sanguine gryphon traveller yarn-the best!!! do i have second sock syndrome????? i see a pattern here.
okay, -now that was painful. all these photos really made me take a deep hard look at myself. the worst part of it? there is still more. yes, there are still more UFO's lurking in my
oh, since posting all these photos, the voices have stopped and i've almost completed my uva ursi bog socks........and guess what????????
i started my blue whale shawl. guess some things will never change(wink!)
.....and you thought your startitus was bad!
