Works in Progress

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.

Sweaters

1. Scott’s Wedding Cardigan

Classic Oak Cardigan

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

Myra's 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.

3. Scott’s Surprise Sweater

Scott's Surprise Sweater

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.

Socks

1. Daughter Heir Socks

Daughter Heir Socks

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.

2. Scott’s Argyle Socks

Scott's Argyle

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.

4. Nameless Socks

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.
