When I started knitting I set myself a goal of one project at a time. I did very well... in the beginning. Then I started on a big project. A large pillow case that may become a throw. This depends on how I feel whenever I get to the final length, which is as long as I am tall.
This is an old photo, I'm now up to my neck :)
Since this pillowcase/throw is such a big WIP (work in progress) I, of course, needed a smaller project to carry along with me in the car, waiting rooms, etc.
I've made this baby blanket before in yellow, green and white. This is a real simple knit, something great for me when I'm travelling. I only noticed well into the 2nd skein of yarn that there is a flaw in the color scheme. I think I'm going to be practicing my newly learned 'patience when knitting' skill by ripping quite a big chunk of this out.
Who wants to be knitting a warm blanket while on vacation in a place of sun and heat? Not me. So, while in Spain, I bought some yarn and attempted my first top with some tricky knitting (tricky for me, that is).
Those funky little circles took me days to figure out. Why days? Because I had to put the ripped out mess down many times and step away. Wait. Then come back with a better frame of mind. Yes, this was before the sorely needed skill of patience kicked in :) Unfortunately, I've let this gem sit for too long. I'll have to take some time to figure out this pattern again.
But in the meantime...
A warm and cozy sweater for a very cold winter! My attempt at Norway's most talked about sweater for 2012 - "Skappelgenseren" by Dorthe Skappel. The combination of this yarn is unbelievably soft and squishy!
4 WIPs. Not too bad. Well, actually 5, but I'm finished with that one now. :)
