WIP Wednesday

Here is the Pineapple Scarf. I love it. LOVE LOVE LOVE (All you need is love ba da da da dum) oops… sorry.

For pattern and yarn deets see entry below.

Lace Ribbon is still getting longer. I thought I’d take a photo so you’d see how long it’s got. I’m still in love with the pattern and the yarn.

Since life is a little calmer this week, I plan on taking a couple of days to work on the boys afghans. I showed them to my Mom and Dad and they liked the cammo one I’m making for DN1 and got a kick out of Haps Jr for DN2. No progress as of today from the last time I showed them to you, but hopefully there will be a small amount for next week’s update.

This coming weekend I’m going to put forth a concerted effort to do two things:

1. Find the yarn and finish the Bomb Shell tank I started 2 years ago. I only have the upper back, neckline and tank edges to finish. It shouldn’t take me too much time. Especially since I’ll be stuck waiting for my new dishwasher to be delivered. Yeah new dishwasher!!! Boo – asshole delivery/installation guys who took advantage of me being a woman this past Saturday and said they couldn’t deliver. I’m still steaming and will tell all later.

2. Find the extra skein of Rowan Calmer I made Soleil with last year and crochet up the excessively plunging v neck with a little decorative something or other, and lengthen it with a crochet border that plays off the lace on the bottom of the edge

Mostly tho, I started a new lace project. Once again I’ve jumped into another Knit-a-long. This is also with the Loopy Ewe and her summer KAL is to use DIC Baby (lace weight). I really like Seascape (in the Summer Knitty). So that's what I started yesterday. So far it's fairly straight forward. We'll see what happens when I get to the more involved charts. I'm sure it will knit up just as easily.

I think it's going to be beautiful! I have till October 1st to finish, which I think is totally doable.
