WIP Wednesday: 42/52

Happy Wednesday! It has been a busy week for me, made worse by my obsession with finishing my sweater. All I’ve wanted to do is work on the sweater. Not because I love knitting it, but because I just wanted to be done.

Thankfully my obsession paid off, as I finished my sweater yesterday. The Yarn Blabber is right, when you are monogamous with a project it really flies. The sweater is badly in need of a good blocking, but I can tell it is going to be a nice wardrobe addition. I’ll post better pictures after blocking. As you can tell I was so excited I didn’t even get out of my bunnies riding bikes pajamas to take the photos (I’m super fancy).

I started working on a new hat for the kids once I was done with the sweater. I’m making both kids Little Boxes Beanies to match John’s. Elliot insists on wearing his “Daddy hat” all summer, so I wanted to make him a hat like Daddy’s for winter. I have enough yarn to make two kids hats, so I’m just going to make two to avoid any potential fighting (trust me, it’s easier that way). I hope to finish both of the hats this week, as when I’m finished with them I can cast on a new shawl for myself.

After I finish the hats it is back to having socks as a travel project. I turned the heel on my first Up All Night sock earlier this week, so I am making some progress on them. I fear I might be a bit burnt out on socks at the moment.

Do you ever need a break from knitting your favorite thing to knit?

  1. Love your sweater! Beautiful color, beautiful cables! I had to take a break from knitting hats because I was making more than any of us could possibly wear!! But that just means my obsession shifted to socks. 🙂
