I thought I would do a quick update on my works in progress. This post is mostly for my own benefit because it forced me to pull out all of my wips and catalog them. I am hoping to get my wips back down to a reasonable number because I am starting to get a bit overwhelmed with all of the projects I have going.
As the title suggests this cardigan is a wedding gift for my husband. We’ve been married seven months now and it still isn’t finished. I severely underestimated how time consuming all of those cables would be.
The pattern is the Classic Oak Cardigan by Alexandra Charlotte Dafoe. Overall this has been a really fun knit but at points it has been a bit of a trial. The yarn is a DK weight from Hobby Lobby and it’s an alpaca acrylic blend. I am so close to the finish line I can taste it.
2. My Pull Over
This is another sweater that should be finished. I’ve only got a tiny bit left but I have recently fallen victim to start-itus and I have been working on other projects.
This sweater is an original design. The pattern is not yet available on Ravelry but I am hoping to publish it sometime this fall. The yarn is Berroco Vintage DK, which is an acrylic, wool, nylon blend. I’ve really enjoyed working on this sweater and I can’t wait to have it off the needles so I can wear it.
This sweater is the most recent of my sweater cast-ons and right now it is the one I am most excited about. It’s a surprise sweater for Scott and the pattern is a free download (links above). The yarn I am using for this sweater is Malabrigo Rios in the jupiter colorway. Malabrigo Rios is 100 % Merino Aran weight yarn.
These socks are pretty much tied with Scott’s wedding cardigan for longest languishing wip. I really love the yarn and the pattern but for some reason I could not get my self to cast-on the second sock until last Saturday.
The pattern is a free pattern on Ravelry by a designer named Sammilynn. The yarn I used is Malabrigo Sock, which 100% Merino.
Yet another wip that has been languishing for several month but this time I have an excuse… I lost the finished leg for several months and did not have the motivation to work on the other sock. But I found the partial sock this morning and we are back on track.
The pattern is a free pattern I found online, which you can find on my Ravelry project page. The yarn is KnitPick’s Stroll, which is a 75/25 % Merino/Nylon blend.
3. Dana’s Socks
These socks are for my best friend. I just started them Saturday night and I am hoping to get them done quickly.
The pattern is my vanilla sock recipe and the yarn is KnitPick’s Stroll Tonal in the Wine Tasting colorway.
These socks are a gift for someone who will remain nameless. The pattern is my vanilla sock recipe and the yarn is Paton’s Kroy.
