On my needles I have a Shalom waiting patiently at the bottom of my knitting bag for some sleeves. The body is finished and I am pleased to say fits to perfection despite, or should I say because of, having to frog most of the stitches twice. Frogging is not something I do willingly but when a project is totally the wrong size or the mistake totally obvious then it is the right thing to do, and as I posted once before is still progress, right?
I also have my first project requested by my eldest, it is a knit that needed sewing up as it's knit in pieces. Having knitted mostly all in one/in the round recently it is a bit tedious to go back to this kind of knitting but it is what my eldest wanted.......so I have finally blocked and sewn it up and am now working on the hood, hopefully I will get it finished before he grows out of it.
I finally got round to frogging this sock, when I tried it on it was far too tight, my youngest could not even get it on her foot it would have probably fitted a toddler! I have now cast this yarn on for a totally different project, one that I have made good progress on but it is resting for now.
The project that has been getting most of my attention these last few weeks is the one that I am working on as part of a lovely knit-a-long, it has reduced in size somewhat as I frogged about 40 rows, seems to be a bit of a pattern here 'scuse the pun, I had been increasing in the wrong place. I ordered some yarn which arrived at the back end of last week to make a wee vest for my youngest for her birthday at the end of the month, a project with a deadline gets all the attention well some at least in the evenings after she has gone to bed.
I have also been squeezing in some sewing too. After my sewing disaster last week I thought I would have a go at drawing up my own simple pattern using a dress that I know fits. I drew round it added a seam allowance and cut it out. I have cut out the fabric and now need to sew the pieces together. I will share if it turns out right!
I have also been creating several wee presents for my daughter, clothes for the Dolly I made her a couple of years ago. This is a night time project and has meant many late nights in a row for me, I will be glad when I am done. Like my knitting it has been sewing and undoing stitches as I work out what fits. This wee dolly is a bit smaller than the dolls clothes patterns I have found.
So, I have lots going on at the moment, many works in progress but nothing finished off to show you, I am sure I will be back next week with them..........as usual joining in with Nicole and for this week Tami.
Are you a one project person or do you prefer to have several which you can pick up and work on depending on what you are doing and where you are?
