I have more WIPs than shown here (after the jump) but these are the ones I mostly work on these days so these are what you will see. But before that, let’s look at a non-WIP related photo. These are 3 skeins of my Arabesque yarn, dyed a nice pale green with hints of blue so I call this Peppermint Patty.
These are not going into the shop because (a) Jackie already bought one and (b) I am making something with the other 2 skeins, possibly a Summer Flies shawl.
My third Koolhaas, alas! is not for me. It’s too small for my head so it will be a present to my nephew/godson Ronan. It’s got 3 repeats so far, two more two go then decreases. Should be finished, blocked and dried in time for his birthday, which is on Christmas Day in case you missed that episode.
My Ishbel is trudging along. Got two more repeats on the body before I start the lace section. I want to use up all the yarn so might do more than the ABABACDE repeat. Not sure how yet so I guess I will be reading up Ishbel project notes next.
Lindsay’s Beaumont Tam inspired me to try and tackle colourwork. And as soon as I dyed the last two skeins of naked Bugga! I knew I had to use those two colours together. This is what I have so far, a 10-row ribbed brim in the pumpkin yellow and two rows of the main colour (brown). Then I start the colourwork….yikes!
I have an FO to show you later. Something that I am rather proud of getting off the needles.
