WIP Wednesday

I’m working on two projects that I lack passion for.

First up is the Throughstone Sweater. It is slow going and not exciting to work on. I’m not even sure I will like wearing it, as it will be thin. I’m not going to frog the sweater. I’m going to finish it. I’m just not going to gush about the process. I’m trying to work on it for a half hour a day, which is totally doable. I’m now at the point in the pattern where I’m ribbing for the pockets.

My Outline Wrap is growing slowly. A two row lace repeat gets pretty boring eventually. I have to think about it only a little bit, but I keep telling myself I don’t have to think about it, and then I look down and I’m two stitches off and I need to tink back 20 stitches. I love how it looks, and I think I will wear this a lot. It will the perfect weight for around the house when I don’t want to put on a sweater but I’m chilly in a t shirt. I am starting to feel like I am never going to finish this, but I will have it done before fall.

My Knit Spin Farm little known holidays sock club is currently in my mailbox, so I’ll be winding that up and casting on tonight. I’m looking forward to starting a project I haven’t grown tired of.

  1. Hmm that’s interesting reading what you say about the sweater, you aren’t enjoying knitting it and you don’t think you’ll enjoy wearing it. I am coming up to 12 months since I stopped working on a brioche cable scarf in colours that won’t go with my coats and I haven’t enjoyed knitting brioche.. so why haven’t I frogged it? Hmmm….is it because I paid for the pattern? Why are you continuing with your project? I need to make a decision on mine.

    I admire you for carrying on. Normally anything like that gets hibernated quickly. My speed at knitting would probably mean one or two rows if lucky in a 30 min slot. 😆

  3. I have had projects that lost the love while I was working on them that I just completed because I wanted to get the yarn used up. Some of them just got shoved away only to be discovered months later as the absolute thing that I needed to wear right then, and wouldn’t you know, they are now some of my favorite knits!! Big knits can be so… boring!… as you said, but nice to have later on. I think that your strategy of dedicating a block of time each day will carry you through. I love the color of that sweater. 🙂
