It's a disease, I tell you. As if the 5 (five!) WIPs (OK, five currently being worked on) weren't enough, I decided to spend a couple hours Wednesday making these:
In the interest of full disclosure, here's a quarter for scale:
I'm not loving the sweater, but I stopped myself from ripping it back. The dolly doesn't need clothes that badly.
Some of those previously mentioned WIPs:
The babe's blue cardigan. I blocked the body, and did a three-needle bind off on the shoulders. I originally thought I would seam the sides, pick up stitches and work the sleeves in the round top-down, but decided I wasn't in the mood for tinkering with the pattern.
So, the sleeves (I'm working two at a time) are about 1/3 complete, then I need to seam, and knit the hood. Oh, and pick buttons of course. Maybe some nice wooden ones.
Perfection Pants, in Zitron Loft. The color repeats are incredibly long. I pulled out about 20 yards of the second ball, in a futile attempt to get the legs to match. Ah, well.
Falling Leaves socks, with my STR. I don't think this pattern is going to work. I really wish designers would include gauge in stockinette in addition to the pattern gauge. I think the yarn is too heavy, and these are probably going to be too big. Not sure what pattern to try next. Maybe I'll give in and go with RPM. I really wanted to find a pattern that was both toe-up, and lacy. I may go back through my print magazines.
