Only blue left!!! Then backstitching!!!
Let’s see… where to start…
I frogged the scarf and started the Bluebonnet Shawl by Marly Bird. Edgecliff is going a row or two at a time. I decided to go simple and meditative with that cool Cat Mountain Fiber skein and am making a simple garter stitch big scarf. I love seeing the different textures!
The Iceberg Afghan is going great! Kind of almost done. Like. I put the squares together, but have 3 skeins left for the border. 2.5 now. I’m just winging it. 5 rows of alternating granny and DC. I’ll finish it with the rest of the blue ombre. It’s huge and keeps me toasty warm while hooking!
Update! Finished! 2/24
So if you know me you know I get overwhelmed easily. Dig too deep. Get in over my head and all that. I went from a ginormous list of WIPs to a much more manageable one. I got even more done last year, and never once felt guilty or tired of it when I branched off into something else.
I went through my tub of WIPs yesterday and compared them to my ravelry In Progress projects. Some just didn’t feel as fun anymore, so I frogged them. I out the WIPs I’m excited about into the In Progress sections and hibernated the rest! Earlier I had put some old ideas in my Queue, too.
So, now I have 6 WIPs. That’s it! All are really fun for me, and one is so close to being finished I can taste it. (don’t taste yarn it’s not awesome)
Nah. I frogged more. Started a couple things, fell out of sync or step with others. I think I figured about 6 so far! If it isn’t fun, I’m not going to mess with it.
SO! I have 4 WIPs now! The newest is this-Vintage Shells Wrap. Easy to memorize. Good for when I’m getting sick. I’m under many blankets, a dog, a cat, and watching Ultimate Beastmaster.
Ugh. shiver More later.
It was a long time coming too. I like the size of it!
So that’s one down for 2019. Five to go!
I can’t explain it. I feel like finishing stuff lately! Normally this time of year (and pretty much all the time) I want to start more projects…but now I’m anxious to finish some. I put Opus back in time out because those crocheted tentacles were not working out. Bleh. So I frogged them and he’s back to hibernating. I tried casting on a two-color scarf or two, but frogged those too and the yarn went back in the drawer. B got a nice project bag for me so I excited to fill it!
Anyway, I got back to my Girl’s Best Friend shawl that I started at the end of 2017. I feel like knitting something that’s more challenging than garter stitch but not too challenging. My fiber friend Dagmar bought the pattern for me. She has a beautiful shop, check it out!
I’m also working on getting my Iceburg blanket done. I’m about 1/3 of the way through it. I made a master list of all the blocks I want to make which was honestly a huge undertaking, lol. Still, I’m excited! I can usually get a block done in one sitting so I’m confident it will get done this year. You can see some of them here. I’ll make a new post about the whole thing when it’s done, I think, or as I go? Who knows.
Fortune and glory, kid.
