Loose Ends

At this point in the year, I always have more projects on the needles than I can handle. So August has been designated "the cleanup month". I will be trying to tie up some loose ends before September, which is when the fall sweater knitting starts. Some projects in need of a little bit of work to be finished include:


Stripe study: a few inches of the border to knit, weaving in ends and blocking.


Grapevine: weaving in ends and blocking.


Vitamin D: two sleeves to knit, weaving in ends and blocking. I wish I was the type of forward thinking knitter who weaves in ends as she goes. But no, I am and will probably always be a procrastinator. You can spot me by the gazillion strands of yarn ends hanging out of my project bags or by a pesky bear still nagging me for some limbs. I think Henry might be a little jealous of the finished kitty (full reveal will be in a few weeks after I knit three or four more).


Go check out WIP Wednesday with Tami's Amis for some fun projects from the coolest bloggers around.

  1. I love the idea of a clean up month! Good luck! The finished kitty look very interesting, can't wait to see him finished! Henry looks good too but maybe in need of some eyes if not limbs!

  2. Oh my gosh, these photos, with Henry the Loose Ends Bear nestled sweetly into each one. <3 What an amazing idea.

    Good luck with the cleanup month of finishing all of your beautiful projects, I'll be looking forward to seeing them on Fridays! (Especially those kitties. And the Vitamin D, which is going to look gorgeous on you.)

  4. "Pesky bear nagging for limbs...." haha! Sort of like when my yarn talks to me when I'm knitting it into the wrong thing!

    Everything looks lovely! Love the little bear!

  8. I love your photos! I just added Vitamin D to my queue. This is the dangerous part of WIP Wednesdays, I go visit everyone and find all sort of other things to make! Can't wait to see your FOs.

  9. Clean up month sounds like an excellent idea, especially when some of it is only blocking and weaving. I hate weaving in ends too (and never do it as I go along!)
