I got an award!
Tammy gave the “You Make My Day” Award. I need an award like this today, because in the next few weeks I’m going to get the “Biggest Idiot” award. I pulled out all my WIPs today. I’m blogging them in categories, for pete’s sake!
Anyway I get to pass the “You Make My Day” award on to 10 other bloggers. That’s going to be tough, because I read a lot of blogs. So don’t feel bad if you’re not on the list.
- Christine at Too Much Yarn
- Missy at Tia Knits (At least I think that’s her name!)
- Joan at The Fairy Godknitter
- Susan and Sally at The Rainey Sisters
- Dawn at Texas Purl Girl
- Stacey at Sheep In the City
- Nancy at Not So Fancy Nancy
- Anne at Knitspot
- Earthchick at Earthchicknits
- Jared at brooklyntweed
Wow! That was hard because there are so many more I’d like to add.
I also learned something else last night. I’ve been nominated for a Bobby Award on Ravelry. My Damask Kauni was nominated in the Most Colorful Category. So, if you’re on ravelry, go vote for me. Or, if you see another project that you like better, vote for that one instead. There are a couple other really cool ones in that category.
I’m really wishing I hadn’t started this WIP blogging. It’s probably going to go all over what an out of control knitter I am. Can we quit this game now? I’m feeling kind of sorry for myself. I don’t like looking stupid. I now know how many WIPs I have. It’s going to take about 6 more blog posts to reveal them all. Does anyone else want to join me? I’ll update the list soon!
OK, on to True Confessions: Stripes Edition. Every WIP in this post has stripes. This first project is one I really want to finish some day.
Next up is a fair isle from the book by Philosopher’s Wool, titled Fair Isle Simplified.
The colors are a little off. It’s knit with Rowan Cotton Glace. I’ve thought about steeking this. Do I dare? If anyone has any advice for me on this one, please speak up. I really do like it.
Here’s a top I almost frogged.
The kid I started it for probably won’t wear it, but her little sister will. Her tummy will not be hanging out when she wears it though. The back and both sleeves are done. All I have left is part of the front. The yarn is Katia Jamaica and the pattern is also called Jamaica.
The next pattern is aptly called “Raglan Sweater with Stripes” from a Rebecca magazine that doesn’t say what year!
The yarn is GGH Aspen. Again, I may still wear this.
And last but not least, Lindebo by Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton for Noro.
This is knit with Noro Kureyon, color 88. I really love this. I do think it’s going to take some creative knitting on the sides to make it big enough. It reminds me of an afghan we had on the couch when I was a little kid.
My bedroom is now a bedroom again, instead of a yarn room with a bed in the middle of it. I need to go put in load twelve of laundry, and then I.must.knit.really.fast.
