Work was closed on Monday, which should have given me lots of time to prepare for this WIP Wednesday, but in reality all it did was throw off my sense of what day it is, and so this is being written rather late. Still, I can show you progress pictures!
First up is the one I’m currently mad at: the Thor Geek-A-Long square:
I think you can see why I’m mad at it. I ran out of one of the yarns with only a few (well, 10-ish) rows left to go. I was hoping to be able to get 2 squares out of each ball of yarn (I already used this gray yarn for the Monty Python square), but that doesn’t look likely. I do have another ball of that yarn, because I am using lighter colors for the background squares and so was planning on multiple squares with that background. But now it looks like I’ll have 3 squares out of the 2 balls of yarn I bought, instead of the 4 I was hoping for. This also means that the main colors (the blue, in this case) won’t last for 2 squares, either. I have to re-think my plan. I might be pulling in more of the multi-color squares from prior years than I had been planning on.
(Side note: I’m only mad because I ran out of yarn. Otherwise I love this project.)
Next is the Raw Honey Mitts:
I’m not sure yet if these will be a birthday gift or a Christmas gift. Partly it will depend on when they are finished, and partly it will depend on how warm it is at the time of the birthday.
Next pic is the Periodic Table Geek-A-Long square, because it’s been a while since I showed it off:
I love the reversible aspect of it. Yes, this makes it extreme double knitting instead of just DK, but I do enjoy the end result of XDK, and I don’t find it that much more difficult. I just have to pay closer attention.
And finally, the project that has been getting the most love, the Lacy Entrelac Chroma scarf:
There’s something about color change yarn that makes it so easy for me to knit. Also I love knitting entrelac (and mitered squares and other things that use short rows) so between the two this scarf is knitting up FAST.
