So I've been knitting away on the Skew socks that I talked about last time. I'm past the heel on the second sock so it's just a short matter of time before I've finished them. They are super snug fitting so they might end up as a gift. But I certainly will knit this pattern again. And to prove that I'm still as crazy as ever, I think I might try to make a stranded version. Not anytime soon though, I have a ton of uncompleted knitted items that need to be addressed first.
First off, let's look at what else I have recorded as in progress on Ravelry.
This is my leftover sock yarn blanket knit with three strands of sock yarn held together, adding a new bit when one runs out. The progress of this was interrupted when my dear Tipper cat had a bit of an accident. She was a dear old cat who passed away over the summer and had some elimination issues now and then. I was able to put the lives stitches on some waste yarn and wash the blanket, but the rest of the leftover yarn was tossed. Since then I've acquired some additional bits of sock yarn (Thanks Tim!) so I can work a bit on this again.
Now I know this Pi Shawl is not getting finished any time soon. For one, the knitting bag is usually in my car as emergency knitting only. Secondly, I usually only knit on it while in a movie theatre or when I need some auto-pilot knitting that I don't have to focus on very much. Also, it is cobweb weight yarn which means a super crap ton of stockinette stitch knitting increases by only a row or two. And lastly, I don't really think I'll ever wear it. The yarn is lovely but not really my color. I started it about 3 years ago and I might be slightly past halfway through. So it's a perpetual WIP and I've come to terms with that.
Here's the Tailored Scallops cardigan designed by Pam Allen. As you can see by this photo, I had some issues with the length on the front and back. Not really sure what is going on with the gauge but I think I've figured out what I need to do and plan to dive back into this project and finish it this winter.
Scotland yarn from Shilasdair! I've swatched and swatched this yarn and finally found a pattern that I like. Unfortunately there is no bust shaping in the pattern and I need to make the adjustments myself. So it's stalled until I get past that point.
Next time, finding all the started and abandoned projects in all the nooks & crannies of my craft room.
