To go along with this weeks blog theme of knitting...
Here are all of the projects that I currently on the needles, and they truely prove that I am a real knitter....because it takes me forever to finish one thing, because I so often get bored in the middle of a project and move onto something else.
So here are the Works In Progress:
These two photos are of me knitting with this yarn, that I love so much. I started working with it probably about 5 years ago when I first started knitting, and was originally making myself a garter stitched scarf out of it...but I ran out of yarn and stopped knitting with the intention of purchases what more I would need. 5 years later, I frogged the entire thing and started over, still doing garter stitch, just on bigger needles (US 15's) and with a narrow cast on of 15 stitches. And now instead of making this scarf for myself I am making it for G. I have been working on it off and on for about a week now, and it is almost finished, so we'll see how it goes...
The next project is The NY Giants scarf for S, which you all saw this past Sunday.
This one is another that was started years and years ago. It is knit with 2 strands, the first being a soft baby pink, and the second being a skinny white strand that has a slight shimmer to it. There is a little pattern to it, but I don't remember what it is... I am not currently working on it, and when it I start up again (probably after the holidays, I will figure it out, I know its a simple scarf...so it inevitably will be completed at some point.
This is a yarn that I am working with right now to make a cell phone cozy for my friend Casey, I was aiming to have a cell phone cover and iPod cozy done by the holidays, but he is going home this weekend, and I won't see him until after the holidays. The cell phone cozy is almost done, and should be finished by the time he leaves, but not the iPod holder, so thats all he's gonna get. There's always next year! :)
This is another scarf, however it is one that I am committed to making for myself. I started it a few summers ago just as something to work on while I was bored at the latte stand. I absolutely love it! It is a white lacy design that I had decided to mix in random red bits into. This is the red yarn here, and it is totally funky. I love it, and the red stripes are completely random as you can see. Anyhow, I love love love it, and when its finished, it can be a spring, summer, fall, and posibly even winter scarf! Hooray.... actually maybe this will be what I will pick up again after I'm done with my holiday knitting.
Again--A scarf! What can I say, I realy am too timid to work outside the box... or the straight line. Scarves are easy, quick, and as you can see my projects don't get done really anyhow...so yup another scarf. I wish you could feel how soft this beautiful cream colored yarn is! Again I love it. This one is a gift for someone who actually reads my blog here and there though so I can't mention who. I simply love knitting with it because it is so soft, and soothing.
This one is somewhat recognizeable to some of you, seeing as I worked on it at your house.... Jess of VeeDogKnits! lol, anyhow, its still incomplete. Surprise, surprise. I haven't been workin on it for a year yet though, so I still have 5 more before it becomes too old for me. ;) Its sort of like a scarf, only wider so I can call it a shawl and pretend I make something other than scarfs :) tee hee. I predict this one to be finished by 2010.
And finally, something that definitely isn't a scarf! Fetching Fingerless Gloves! I started these just about a year ago, and they were supposed to be a Christmas gift last year. When they weren't finished in time I claimed they would be done in time for this Christmas. Sorry Laura! They still aren't done... but someday they will be, and they are quite soft and lovely so far, in a nice dark charcoal. I know that when they are completed, whenever that may be, they will be loved.
So to all of those knitters out there, have fun! Don't worry about not finishing your projects, look how long some of mine have lasted! :)
