I’ve often popped over to the Work in Progress Wednesday meme going on over at Tami’s Amis and Other Crochet blog, and admired the projects people are in the process of creating. I’ve never gotten it together enough to actually participate until today!
Here’s my major work in progress, what will likely be my last sweater of 2010, Girl Friday from Knitty Fall 2009:
As you can see, all of the actual knitting is done. As you can also see, it’s a sweater that has to be seamed up and that has not happened yet! Argh, seaming. Further complicating matters is that it needs buttons, which seem to take me months to find and sew on.
It’s knit in Knitpicks Wool of the Andes in Dove Heather, and I found myself one ball short of the yarn before I had finished knitting the collar. I ordered another ball through Knit Picks but everyone knows that yarn gets lonely if it travels by itself in single balls, so I ordered some Pallete to keep it company in the mail. I’ve never used Palette before, and since there are about 100 colors to choose from, I just kind of stabbed in the dark and ordered a favorite combination of gray and ochre.
You may notice the Beastie Boys poster on the wall behind the yarn. Also note the genuine Mike D autograph!! It actually has all 3 of their signatures on it. My brother-in-law’s friend (who doesn’t like the Beastie Boys…there’s no accounting for taste, I guess. hehe) won it in a radio call-in contest and was nice enough to pass it along to my husband and me. It’s one of our prize possessions!
Anyway, I’m not quite sure what this yarn wants to become, but it’s my next work-in-progress. Maybe a colorwork hat and a pair of Endpaper Mitts? Hmm.
