WIP Roundup

My knitting needles have been clicking busily away this week. And no wonder! How did I go from three WIP's to six in just two weeks?


Let's see, there is the Spoked Cardigan, which is progressing at a reasonable pace. I have the right front, right sleeve and half the back knitted up. I am still enchanted with the colors, but not so much with all those darn yarn ends to weave in. I have had to resort to spit splicing (ewww!). I love hearing the grossed out reaction from the little guy whenever he sees me do this.


Next is a new cardigan that I am knitting as part of the fall KAL sponsored by my LYS. It is called Vodka Gimlet and is designed by Thea Colman. So happy to be knitting this as I am a big fan of her blog, BabyCocktails. She has a fun laid-back style. Nestled in the picture is a pin cushion made by my twelve year old niece. She actually embroidered it freehand without a template. Love it!

And lastly, here are two new hexipuffs to add to the basket. This is the perfect project to work on after coming home from a long twelve hour shift. Mindless and fun.

There is one other project that I had started and finished this week which will have to wait until Friday.

In the meantime, I am going to take a break from the needles, make some tea and go check out the lovely blogs participating in WIP Wednesday with TAMI'S AMIS.

  2. "Enchanting" is exactly the right word for the colours in that cardigan. They're wonderful, I could stare at them all day!

    And your niece's embroidered bunny is just beautiful. I'm envious of her skills!

  8. I have been restraining myself--I was NOT going to join the hexipuff mania--but that embroidered one has just sent me over to the dark side.....I've just gotta do it! Thanks for the inspiration! (I think!!!)

  11. That cardigan is gorgeous :) I don't think my boyfriend has ever seen me spit splice anything, which is probably a good thing! Love your new hexipuffs :)

  12. Hi!!! I love your blog and your taste in patterns! I think I have finally found someone more obsessed with things that are knitting related or hand crafted than me! I wonder how it is I haven't found my way to your blog before this???
    I love your Spoked Cardigan. My LYS is having birthday sale Saturday and I have been promising to buy only a skein of sock yarn because of my long queue of sweaters and extensive stash. I may have to relent if she puts her Noro on sale!!!
