This Week’s WIPs

There are a few projects that I have on the go right now. Click the links to find the patterns.

The tunisian knit stitch top I’ve been working on for months now hasn’t gotten any farther. I think I can officially classify this one as hibernating for now. Hopefully, I’ll get back to it someday soon.

I’m making good progress on this Chevron Lace Cardigan. It’s the second one I’ve made from this pattern. I strongly suspect I’m going to be playing yarn chicken with it though.

Another project I’m just sort of winging is this poncho. It doesn’t look much like a poncho yet but it will. I’m using Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball and I just love the colour changes in it. So pretty. 🙂

I’ve finally finished this baby set. Here we have the Loopy Love blanket, sweater, and hat from Moogly. They’re adorable and I can’t wait to send them.

Having finished one baby sweater, I’ve started work on another. This one is for a boy so I get to use something other than pink for a change. No picture of it yet though since there’s not really much to see yet.

I haven’t finished any more squares for Firefly CAL yet. I’m about three weeks behind now. 😛 Oh well, maybe this week….

Virus Blanket

My virus blanket is finally finished!

As I have neither the patience or the yarn to make it any larger, it’s a throw. Even at that size it was really hard to get a picture of the whole thing. It is almost as wide as my queen size bed though so it’s a good sized throw.I’m thinking of donating it to my daughter’s air cadet squadron for their silent auction at the end of the month.

As much as I love the pattern I’m not sure I could make another one. I really seem to struggle with blankets in general, they just take so long. Maybe I’ll make a virus shawl if I get the urge to play with this pattern again. Shawls I don’t take nearly so long to finish. 🙂

Firefly CAL – Week 5

I can’t believe we’re over a month into the Firefly CAL already. Last week’s squares were the Alliance Flag and Shiny. I only made one of them, Shiny, since I’m not a big fan of the Alliance. Sure, every show needs a big bad enemy, but that doesn’t mean I have to like them. 🙂

This square turned out pretty well though all those colour changes for the word were a bit of a pain.

Also posted this past week were the bonus squares. I’m planning to make several of them so I was pretty excited to see them. Now I just need to decide exactly which ones I’m making and them find the time to actually get started on them.

This week’s regular squares are both Wash related: Wash’s dinosaurs and Leaf on the Wind. I’ll be making Leaf on the Wind but not the dinosaur square as I’ve decided to only make one square per character. These are only two more weeks left in the CAL so I should probably start weaving in ends and figuring out what order I’m going to be joining these things in. 🙂

Firefly CAL – Week 4

Here is my latest square in the Firefly CAL, Kalyee’s Parasol:

I’m not sure I like how this one turned out. Colours that are only a single stitch wide don’t seem to work very well in tunsian and I made a couple mistakes that are a little too obvious for my liking. I think I’ll put it away and see if it grows on me later.

This week’s squares are Shiny And the Alliance flag. I’ve already started on Shiny and will probably make the Alliance flag too. Pictures in a week. 🙂
