Last week I slowly gathered all my unfinished knitting projects stashed in bags in closets, my office and my craft room. I knew I had a lot, but was still surprised when I laid them all out on my craft room table and discovered I had 29!!
- 12 shawls
- 3 cowls
- 2 pairs of mitts
- 5 pairs of socks
- 1 sweater
- 2 blankets
- 3 hats
- 1 scarf
This morning I started with a hat I had started for my brother in law which was 3/4 done.
I finished knitting it this afternoon, soaked it in a tub of warm water and wool wash and it is now drying…..so down to 28.
Looking through everything I decided that I didn’t really love one cowl ……now down to 27.
I picked 2 projects to work on for now, a shawl and a pair of socks.
The shawl pattern is Hediye by Ysolda Teague.
I had a skein of handspun merino and cashmere blend in a heavy worsted weight that I thought would be perfect for this pattern. The yarn was spun by Suzie at Knit Natural. I decided to use this skein for the border and Malabrigo Worsted that I had on hand for the body of the shawl. I started knitting it in May of this year and I’m a little more than half way done the border.
This picture shows about 1/4 of the border finished. I’ll post a more updated picture in a future post. The yarn is so soft and squishy but still has a lot of stitch definition. It’s perfect!
The second project I picked to work on is Diamond Lace Socks, the pattern designer is Qianer Huang. I started them last June and finished one sock, so just the matching sock and this project will be done!
The yarn is by Hiloris Magical Yarnorium. I love this gradient yarn! This colour is Ocean Pearl.
I’m excited to be getting organized and tackling all these unfinished projects!
