What’s in the work-box? September edition.

2 Oct

So, in all this running around after children and “touristing” as Boyo calls it (as in: “Where are we touristing to today, Mum?”), I totally forgot to post on Thursday regarding my WiP-off progress.

So here ’tis, the official tally for September (as in August, all headings link to the relevant Rav-page).

In Progress:

  1. Mulberry Shawl: Not a single, solitary stitch was added to this.
  2. Aestlight Shawl: Ditto.
  3. Red Socks: Likewise.
  4. Mittens for Sasquatch: Growing slowly – his work ethic is improving, but I missed nearly two weeks’ worth of knitting on them because I ran out of yarn. I finally got to Spotties last week and was very, very lucky to find the last two balls of the right colourway in the end-of-season sellout bin. I grabbed them both, and will eke out the incentive by knitting him a matching beanie.
  5. Wood Duck socks: New travelling socks cast on after the Cabernet socks were finished. These are almost done, and are my primary focus at the moment, because they have a deadline that is bearing down on me like a giant iceberg on an allegedly unsinkable ship.

And (drum roll puh-leeze)… my Finished Projects:

  1. Yarn Love Cowl: FO post to follow as soon as I can organise someone to take some pics of me in it.
  2. Maths + Purple (renamed Cabernet) Socks: FO post to follow once the recipient has them.

And that’s it for September. Not as many projects finished as I might have hoped, but a decent amount.

Now, if I can just keep my focus and knock over two more projects this month, I’ll be laughing. Especially if I can restrain myself from casting on any new ones…

    You did well to finish your projects. I’ve just found some socks that must be nearly two years old and aren’t done yet!!
    A beanie from the extra wool sounds like a good idea. The Wood Duck is an excellent travelling pattern!!

    So does this mean that next month you finish up three things???

    Casting on something new is always a possibility…..the question is just one?
