Working Wednesday #3

This is my weekly post as I work through the yarn in my “collection” (not stash – thank you Sue) . This is the current state of play with the projects I’ve worked on this week:

  • Golden spikes jumper: because I was away over the weekend, this is still not quite completed. However, all the knitting is done and I just need to sew in the sleeves and sew the side and sleeve seams. I’ve got rather a lot of the wool left over, but I’m not sure what I’ll do with it.
  • The 4-ply Skeleton hat is finished and is blocking. There’s a tiny bit of sewing required once it’s dry and then I hope to finalise the pattern and get it published.
  • Fingerless mittens completed, but they are very thick and warm, so I’ve started work on a second thinner pair.
  • Stripe socks: I needed a small and simple project to do whilst I was away over the weekend, so I’ve made a start on a pair of basic socks using some more of my collection of lovely yarn from The Knitting Goddess.
  • I have contacted the designer of a crochet pattern that I started work on last year to try to get an explanation of how to finish it – the instructions are somewhat lacking, to say the least!

I haven’t done any work on the complex honeycomb cable socks this week because of going away and the need to concentrate when I’m doing them.

I hadn’t realised until I took the photographs that my recent colour choices have been somewhat ‘samey’. It wasn’t planned, but perhaps any new projects should involve something a bit different!

So that’s my progress this week. Have you completed any projects? Are you working on anything interesting?

    • I’m sure there have been times when it’s been all purple, but somehow I have been drawn to this blue/teal palette recently… such vibrant colours. So, your sampler is done then… lovely.

      • I think we all go through colour phases. I used to dislike purple quite a lot, but now I’m quite happy using it. You’ll still be hard put to it to catch me using much brown or yellow in my quilts, though – except for the scrappy blocks where I’m using up the bits.

    I’m impressed. I did get all the embroidery on the hardanger heart I’ve been working on for our second wedding anniversary, just need to get the beads now. Oh, and our wedding memory book has got a step close to being bound.

  5. Blue is just the best colour to be working with – absolutely AOK in my opinion 🙂 You are being very productive! I can happily report the daughters house is now as she envisaged it and I can return to my own life and get on with my own projects after almost a month of being immersed in hers…… Yay!!

  6. With the multi-color yarn, you’re mixing things up so it’s okay! As far as projects go, well, I’ve been thinking a lot about knitting a blanket, does that count?

  7. I love all this blue 🙂 I really like your jumper especially, are those cables? I just finished a chunky jumper myself and I’m super chuffed with it!
