WIPs on Wednesday

Here's what's on the needles (or SOME of the needles).

Confession:  I was going to go to bed, then I remembered that I gave out my blog site to Amy today.  She says her mom is a knitter and would like to have a look.  Realizing that I haven't blogged about knitting in awhile made me stay up an extra hour... no worries... and post.
It's not like I have NOTHING to say!!  LOL

They almost look like ballet slippers, but they are felted slippers for my 2 year old.  Drying now, soon the extra bits will become cute bunny ears and I'll sew eyes, nose and tail.  I have all the bases covered:  If they don't fit... as in too small... they will be stuffed and become a bunny pair!
 I'm a bit disappointed that they didn't felt evenly.  Done in a front loader with a pair of jeans.  I enclosed them in two lingerie bags.  I know, friend Kay, you would offer your top loader...

Next is my dream color. It's sage which looks sage in the right light, and was chosen from my stash because it is the exact perfect color for a light-weight cardi to match a dress.  It's great to hold, too:  Pima Cotton DK.  I'm very excited... however, I tend to put these things on the back burner since it's for myself.  Somehow, I have few deadlines for my garments.  It's a personality flaw... No worries.
 This is what Amy sees every time I volunteer at the museum.  Socks... toddler socks.  I'm hesitating on finishing the toes because I don't have the little feet that will wear them.
 Basic socks, in-my-head pattern, I've already finished the mommy socks.
 And now the cutest ever, 24 month cardigan, almost finished.  Half a sleeve to go, and needing six buttons (a shout out to my darling daughter--she'll know what to do).  A 100% bamboo yarn project in Spring Green.
Am I busy?  yes
Do I know what will keep me company for my 24 hours of travel in one week?  no
A week:  an eternity in knitting time.


  1. Wow! That's a heck of a lot of knitting.

  2. ahhhhh pink bunny ballet slippers?!?!? I can't control my enthusiasm!!!!!!!!


Go ahead! Tell me what's on your mind.
