Works In Progress – and a plan

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… 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!

    1. Thank you for reading! This blog post is my way of keeping myself on track and not starting any new projects until I either knit all these or decide I don’t want to finish them and rip out the yarn for use in new projects. I apparently want to knit every pattern I see while having a short attention span. 😄.
