WIP Wednesday

7 01 2009

I’ve got 2 big WIPs that are battling for my attention. I would like to have both finished by the end of the month, hopefully I will succeed!

My first WIP is a knitting WIP, my Calvert cardigan.

I’ve knitted the fronts and both back pieces, you can see them below blocking on my new blocking board.

I’ve also started working on sleeve #1. I’ve only 12″ to go before the sleeve cap so it shouldn’t take too long.

After knitting the second sleeve I will have to assemble the pieces together and then knit a band around the fronts and the neck. I’ve already tried fitting the existing pieces together and it looks like it should fit, so I have high hopes for a nice cardigan.

My second major WIP is sewing WIP and made of 23 parts.

12 small box bags

Future box bags - small size

and 11 large box bags

I try to do at least one step a day and I definitely see progress being made.

Tonight I have to decide: will I sew or will I knit?

Are you a tight knitter or is it my imagination?

If I was that close to finishing a sweater? I would have knit. I think. Great fabrics BTW

To sew or to knit? That’s a tough question to answer – especially when all of your projects look so great!

Wow, you’ve been busy! Most of a sweater and a whole lot of sewing. If it were me, I’d finish off the sweater. We’re supposed to get really cold temps this weekend. Brr!

You could do both, a little knitting than a little sewing. I still love my little bag!

Hmm – curious about what the sewing is!
