I decided to take pictures of all my works in progress, the actual ones that have a chance of getting finished this year, maybe even this summer. I just wanted to get organized for my whole day of knitting. Whole day. I got my walk and the mandatory half hour war-on-weeds in the garden out of the way early this morning. Came home and did breakfast, cleaned the house, even mopped the kitchen floor. Took a shower, said good bye to hubbie who won't be home all day and will also be gone for dinner. I have nothing on the calendar except to meet my girlfriend downtown late afternoon for coffee and knitting. There is a ball game on in a half hour, no dinner to cook tonight, I've got to catch up on at least 4 Mad Men. Plus I've got all this knitting waiting for me. Seriously, for me. Best day.
|I've been working on this for a while. It's Ravello by Isabell Kraemer knit in KSH Strip in color California Sunrise.|
|I just received my copy of Honey last night and immediately cast on for Goldie, just because, well, I love it, but also I had the yarn for it in my stash! That means its FREE :) I have a sparkly, smokey KSH Eclipse and Fine Lace in a gunmetal black. I started it because I wanted to know what it would be like to knit with these two together, and naturally it's fabulous as I expected. I'll put this away for now and bring out when I'm on a long plane ride the end of June. This will be a perfect travel knit, lightweight, only a little shaping and a ton of stockinette.|
|I'd love to have this done soon. Bay, from an older Kim Hargreaves book, knit in Rowan Original Denim in color Nashville.|
|This is Torine from Martin Storey's Truesilk Collection. I'm using a pale blue and turning it into an infinity scarf for my daughter. I've eliminated the bobbles and think I'm only going to use 3 balls. Very luxurious.|
|I've set Guido aside for now. I'll get back to it in July as it's for my son's September birthday. It's from the newest Rowan Magazine and knit with Rowan Revive, a recycled mix of silk, rayon and cotton. It's stunning.|
|I've just finished Solitaire, also from the Truesilk Collection. I knit it in Cotton Glace. Ill wear it downtown today when I meet with my girlfriend. I am a little unsure about the neckline and may take it out and make it wider. She'll help me decide.|
|Brooke by Sarah Hatton is from the Simple Shapes book for Panama. This is my first time using Panama and I love it. It has a lot of texture and beautiful drape. I showed it to my daughter and she wants a similar sweater in the exact same yarn and exact color. She likes Wander below.|
|I've not cast on for this, so not officially a WIP, but I have the yarn in my stash. Or I could pair it with some Fine Lace and make this pretty one below, also from Honey. Probably the one below, what do you think?|
Also, I'm keeping up with my afghan squares for the Martin Storey PWW KAL.
Gotta go, the game is on and the knitting is waiting!
