Well it’s almost June and that means we’re almost half way through the year. Where the heck has it gone?? I suppose that this is as good a time as any to have a little progress report of my 2105 resolution: finish all the WIPs!!
Remember the Mystery KAL I mentioned back in January??
To say that this is one of my favorite pieces ever is a major understatement. It’s so cozy to wear and the colors are amazing. I ran into the designer of this shawl while I was at Vogue Knitting Live and he was pretty impressed…and I may or may not have fan-girled a little over him….it’s whatever.
I also mentioned my chunky triangle shawl at the beginning of the year and I’m proud to say that it too is FINISHED!
While the weather was a little into Spring by the time I finished this I did get 2 or 3 days of wear in it. Let me tell you, this shawl and I are never going to part come winter. It engulfs me and I couldn’t be happier about it. And let’s be honest, fringe is pretty much the shiz.
One piece I didn’t mention was a super soft Alpaca cowl that I had promised Karli I would make for her. FINISHED!
Luckily it WAS still winter so she had ample time to be snuggled by this guy. Alpaca and winter go together like a kitchner stitched seam. Get it?? Yarn humor. Moving on.
Those are the only personal pieces I’ve finished so far. Now before you go saying “C’mon Sarah, we know you’re always knitting….how can that be all???” let me show you the other things I’ve made this year for the store.
…I also learned to needlepoint.
I can only hope that the my good momentum will continue! Going to Europe in a couple weeks will definitely put a little pause on some things but don’t get it twisted, I’ll have a project with me. Hooray for 2015 and getting shiz done! It feels pretty grand.
