Yarn Along :: WIPs

Yarn Along :: WIPs

Joining Ginny for another Yarn Along … This definitely has become one of the bright spots in my week! I really appreciate seeing so many different knitting (and crocheting) projects, and my to-read list has grown to be about a mile long, thanks to your fabulous recommendations!
This week, I am still working on my mom’s neck warmer. I am almost done with it (about four rows left). But it looks exactly the same as last week, just longer, so I will wait until next week to show you the finished product.
In the meantime, here are three works in progress (WIPs). They are the projects that tend to get put aside for something new … or something that has a more immediate “deadline” (like a birthday or Christmas).
I currently have three WIPs. One is my prayer shawl. It is a seven-skein project, and I am on the last skein. So, I am very, very close to finishing. I think I really should just finish it before starting anything new. The next is a lace scarf. This is very embarrassing, but I started this about a year ago for a friend’s May birthday. I am only halfway done. I really should finish it for her birthday this May! And lastly, I started a pair of Toasty fingerless mitts in January. I do not have a timeline for when these have to be done, which is nice.
Last week, someone (and I can’t remember who!) pictured this beautiful book in her Yarn Along. I was instantly drawn to the titleโ€”Faith, Hope and Love Knitting. I immediately added it to my Amazon wish list but didn’t have to wait to purchase it, as I happened upon it during this week’s trip to the library. It is a lovely book, and I have queued a couple projects from it already.
Oh! And, as promised, I posted photos of my daughter’s Milo vest here.
Happy knitting! Happy reading! And for more Yarn Along posts, please visit Ginny at Small Things.

  1. I love the yarn you're using for the scarf and the fingerless mitts. I always have WIP! One project is just so 'ordinary'….lol.
    You have adorable kiddos. Lots of smiles, I noticed.
    I'm a library user, too. My DD is a librarian so I just text her my list and she brings them to me. This book will definitely be on my list this week.

  2. That's a lovely soothing grey for the shawl. I was sitting here trying to figure out how your got your fuzzy gloves to look like there were hands in them—when I realized it was the book cover! Duh.

  3. Thanks for sharing this book. I am running to my library on my lunch break to look for it. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  4. I love the pinks here! They are all the rage… even Michael Kors used them in his latest runway show! Great knitting!

  5. I also had a "birthday" scarf that took me almost a year to knit. You end up getting 2 birthdays out of it really! ๐Ÿ™‚ And I love the pink yarn you're knitting with.

  6. Doesn't it feel good to finally get to those projects? You have some lovely colors there. And that book looks great! I wonder if I'll be so lucky as to find it at my library too?

  7. So many beautiful projects! The prayer shawl is beautiful, I love the scarf, the Toasty mitts and the Milo…oh the Milo…I'm trying to finish the projects on my needles but the Milo is calling!

  8. Oh, thanks for stopping by my place. I had to return the compliment. Your family are gorgeous! How on earth do you find the time to read let alone knit? I am in awe, thanks for the book recommendation it sounds like a real treasure. Cx

  9. All your projects are fabulous. And your daughter's Milo is wonderful. She looks so happy! The same book caught my eye. Hoping to find it at my library as well.

    Blessings, Elizabeth

  10. Wow you knitting is beautiful. Your friend's lace shawl could have take three years for me so be proud! I did make a lace prayer shawl but it is far from perfect. Happy knitting and reading!
