WIP it!

Luca loves my camera. He very nearly licked the lens! I showed him this close-up photo of him and he meowed, which means he approves it.

Luca jumped up on the table when I was taking photos of my WIPs (which we will get to in a sec). He even agreed to model this Chevron Scarf for me. He said it suits his colours and I couldn’t agree more! The boy has great taste – it’s Bugga no less!

He did scoff at me when I refused to let him try on the Sundara Yarn Worsted Merino Knucks. He refused to believe that the gloves were way too big for his cute widdle paws. Oh well, can’t please him all the time.

So here it is, out in the open, bared for everyone to see. No holds barred. In the spirit of full disclosure. My WIPs. All of them. Kept neatly in separate project bags in my new maize basket and IKEA box. Shall we open them up?

Here we go. Twenty WIPs in total. This explains why I cannot find any spare Knit Picks cable or 4mm needles. There is absolutely no cable left in my bag. It’s all in here, plus the one I freed up from the just-finished shawl which unfortunately had to go bye-bye because one of the metal ends popped out again. And those suckers are impossible to put back in once they slide off the hinges. Bummer.

Anyway, so here’s a run-down of what we have here, from left to right, top row to bottom. You can click the thumbnail above for a bigger photo.
