First off, I added Ravelry progress bars! So you can clicky on any of my WIP projects in the sidebar to go to that project page.
OK, oldest first – I’m occasionally making progress on the Alpine Lace Scarf. According to the pattern directions, I should only have a few more repeats of the center panel left, but not only does it seem a little short, I have quite a bit of yarn left. So I guess I’m not as close to finishing as I thought. But it sure does look purty! The color is way off in this photo, and I’m too lazy to try to fix it. My other photos of it are much more color correct.
Next is the Chinese Style Pullover. I seem to be having gauge issues – I think it’s because I was very nervous about it, and started out knitting much more tightly than usual. I’ve loosened it up, and I’m going to just ignore the fact that the lower part is going to be different, because I don’t think I want to try frogging this yarn. I’ll block it when I get to the underarms, and if I still think it’s a problem, I’ll just deal with it then. The stitch pattern is very easy, and it would be a good SnB project if I didn’t have to deal with the cones.
The newest kid on the block is the Drops 103-16 cardigan. This is the back, even though it looks small enough to be a sleeve. It’s really stretchy. And it’s superwash, so it will grow even more. Or so my swatch says.
I still have the Myrtle Leaf Shawl as a WIP, but it’s hibernating until the Alpine Lace scarf is done.
Oh my gosh…you are just too smart.
I knit more repeats than the Alpine Lace pattern wanted me to. I just eyeballed it and hoped I had enough yarn left for the edging.
Yours looks great! I’m looking forward to seeing it done. 😀
I swear, you must knit more than the Yarn Harlot!
Dude! How’d you make the bars?? I never knew you could do that! How fab!!
(I agree with Chris too. How do you get it all done?!)
DROPS has some really nice designs, don’t they? Either that, or you manage to find the gems.
Um…. so you’ll be kind enough to share with all of us where you found said Ravelry progress bars and how you got the code on your blog, right? Because those are VERY cool.
Really?? A cardigan back? Ok – I’m gonna have to trust you on that one. But seriously?
Wonderful progress on the Alpine. I brought mine with me to TX, but I’m not able to knit it yet. I wouldn’t rip two separate yarns held double. Although, you do have that nifty contraption from your hubby. It could be easier.
How DO you get so much knitting done???
