WIP Wednesday

13 08 2008

I’m back from vacation. Our stay in the Adirondacks was fun. There was rafting, hiking, visiting and a bit of shopping too. Although I did take my camera with me I didn’t end up taking any pictures. So you’ll have to make do with pictures of my knitting!

The evening before we took off I cast on for a new project… I am afraid that I am suffering from castonitis, hopefully it wont last too long!

This new project is Pixie Purls’ Country Kiddie in Jojoland Melody Superwash in the colorway 18.

I really love this cute pattern and will be making more of them. It is written for sock yarn and would look great in almost any yarn. I just have one ball of the Melody so I’m hoping that it will be enough to make a short top.

If I hadn’t worked so much on this little top I would probably be much further along on my Marigolds. They’re just waiting for a heel now.

I did work quite a bit on my Vesper self-striping sock though and am now much further than this:

The sock now looks like a long tube as I will be knitting an afterthought heel on it. I hope it works out!

I did not work on my Tipsy Socks at all so they look exactly like they did before I left.

And I won’t even mention my 4 other single socks…

Another big WIP is my 1930’s Pinwheel quilt top. It was sandwiched together the day before I left and I tried my hand at hand-quilting while on vacation. I didn’t get very far on it but I hope to be able to work a bit on it every week.

Sandwiched and ready to go!

Maybe I will have it done in 2015!

Your vacation sounds like you had a great time but I will miss seeing pictures. The quilt looks great and quilting it by hand. Wow!

I never thought of quilts traveling – how does that work?

Your vacation sounds like fun. I’m always hauling my camera with me and then forgetting to take pictures. That top is going to be cute!
