Ripped, Knit and crochet.
I was knitting the Snowmelt Shawl by Helen Stewart of Curious Handmade. I ripped it out.
I just wasn't feeling the peach yarn (which I dyed myself). In theory it looked good with the other two (purple is Republik of Wool and Blue is Francophile Knits), and by in theory I mean in skein form. But half way through the knit I just knew I hated it and it needed to go to the frog pond.
So I'll probably cast that one back on eventually... since it is a FO I would really like to have, I mean I don't have any semi-circular shawls yet. And really that is reason enough for me.
I cast on the Twisted Soul socks, for the Sockmatician's Twisted Stitches knit along. These are a mystery knit pattern, heavily cabled. I won't share any more pictures until all the clues are out. I'll be pleasantly surprised if I manage to finish these bad boys before the end of the month.
These Caron Cakes are a project with a deadline. I actually added a fifth to that pile, just in case. They are quickly becoming a chevron crochet blanket for a bridal shower on the 17th. I'd say I'm about half way there.
So that's what I have pictures of... actual WIPs, well I think I'm upwards of 7 right now. So that's fun.
What have you been working on?
