WIP ’em out

Have I let a week go by again without posting? It appears I have. I feel like I’m playing “catch-up” with my life right now since I did practically nothing in May except produce copious amounts of phelgm. For those interested (and I know you are), my phlegm production has dropped considerably and I feel like I’m slowing getting my head above water again.

Because of the game of “catch-up” I’ve been playing, my dear knitting time has suffered. In fact the only thing I’ve touched in the past couple of weeks is Hourglass. A little here. A little there.

In catching up on everyone’s blogs I am itching to finish things. Finish them I say! So I’m going to bring out a few Works In Progress to show you that a) they really do exist and b) they weren’t dragged off by a pack of wild dogs.

We’ll start with Hourglass.

For those of you who have knitted Hourglass, does it ever end?! I mean I see you modeling your “finished” sweaters on your blogs but is it real? Have those photos been altered? I’m asking because it seems like I knit and knit and knit and there is nothing to show for it! I think I’m almost to the point where I join the sleeves. (Oh yeah. The sleeves. Note to self: knit the sleeves.) Thank goodness it’s not getting cold here anytime soon.

Up next we have the Entrelac Scarf.

I am loving the way this scarf looks with all of the colors. I could probably finish this pretty quickly if I worked on it exclusively. Ha ha! Exclusively. That’s funny. So yeah, I’m glad this is a cool weather item, too.

And let me knock the dust off of Butterfly.

This project has gone nowhere lately. But I still want to finish it! I won’t give up on it! I promise you’ll see more progress on this very soon. I really want to start the lace of the body!

I did manage to weave in the ends on the Bolero but I still need to block it. That involves finding a space in this house to pull out my blocking board. Easier said than done these days. Wish me luck.

  1. The hourglass does finish, and it is great wearing it! It goes much faster once you get to the sleeves, so keep up the good work, seems you ‘re almost there!

  2. Glad to see you’re posting again and you’re starting to feel better. If you’re up for a Hurricane Season swap, hop on over to my blog and check out Hurricane Sock Party 2006. Hope to see you there!

  3. I’ve been afraid to start the Hourglass for that very reason! I like your, however, it’s the first green one I’ve seen. Glad you’re feeling better.
