Hot on the heels of Photo Heavy Monday, I'm instituting wip it Wednesday. It'll be
sobering fun to air the goods underway. Right now there are many, maybe my most ever at one time. Here are Two Most Likely to Be Finished Really Soon.
Giuliana, from Peru, is freezing in our New England weird October. She's not from the woolly alpaca highlands, but from Lima, which doesn't have a truly cold winter. So, yes,I get the irony: I am knitting her a hat, while my son wears the Peruvian chullo he bought when they visited her family last summer. She requested a simple ribbed hat she'll wear with the bottom 3 inches or so turned up over her ears for extra warmth. She chose the yarns from my Big Bags O'Leftovers. The mustard color is Berroco Ultra Alpaca, from....Peru. It's a small world, after all.
There's not much more satisfying than a big (very) wound skein of Cascade Eco Wool in bear-y brown. So much yardage, so hefty. I'll spare you the image of Bobo, our enormous American Bulldog, picking up one of these irresistibly sheepy cakes, walking around with it entirely in his humongo jaw, looking at me like "Hey, you said it was cake, right?"
I'm sure I'll be even more satisfied with it as a Cadence sweater . I'm doing my usual election day gig at the polls as a ballot clerk. It being a very quiet local election, I'm thinking Voting Day might also be Knitting Day. (But still, USA citizens, go vote. Democracy is pretty wonderful. Don't worry about us knitters sitting the polls).
Special feature! wip ideas for you . In case you don't have enough on your needles (and hook).
Check out Stacey Trock / Fresh Stitches kits for her big squishy amigurumi. These aren't the teeny weeny novelty projects that you use toothpicks to maneuver, but big squishy creatures with a lots of personality. Kind of like Stacey (although she's not very big, really).
I'll be back with....um..Whatever Weekends, next. On Friday or Saturday, or maybe even Sunday. Gives me a lot of leeway with just a touch of regimentation, right?
