I've decided to participate in nablopomo... I'll be posting every day in November (or attempt to, at least). I'm usually good about posting, but would like to make it a daily or every other day thing. Just hope that I have enough to talk about!
This is my most recent WIP. It's the Eyelet Skirt in Cascade 220. I'm calling it When in doubt, wear red. I love wearing red... it's so bold and looks good on just about anyone, anytime. I'm doing a few mods to the pattern since I'm short (5'2")... I found another Raveler that is my height and I like how hers turned out. I'm shortening it overall, omitting the triple yo row, and doing a different ending than the pattern calls for. Shawn's unsure about the color, wondering what top I would wear with it. He's the typical guy when it comes to color... if it isn't the color of a tree, he is iffy on it.
I've also been working on the Friendship Afghan from swap-bot.com. I have 35% of my squares. I was just stitching them together, but decided to take it apart and single crochet them together and add a single crochet edge to it. I like it so much more. I'll post a picture tomorrow.
I'm thinking of starting a pair of mittens using the Wullenstudio sock yarn I got from my SP and some other solid fingering weight yarns. It's A Bird in the Hand. This will be my first attempt at color knitting... I plan on using the variegated Wullenstudio yarn (colorway Lipstick on my Collar) for the background (black in the picture on the pattern) and a solid for the rest. I'll be picking the 2 solid colors from the stash or may be spinning it up, depending on what I find.
