Project Round Up

It's definitely about time I show a little knitting content. Here's an update on my current projects.

Rogue is still sailing along nicely. I took this picture yesterday morning. I misplaced a row on the right neck and after spending an hour fiddling with it the night before I realized that it would be much faster to rip it out and reknit it. I did that last night.

Here's the finished side cable.

A little close up on the neck (before ripping).

I'm also working on a felted bag from Knit One, Felt Two. Here's the Lunchbag Carryall so far in Dark Red Lopi.

And lastly a little shot of my project from the Knitty Gritty. The theme of the show was what can you do with a rectangle. Everything was knit in novelty yarn since the designer works for Trendsetter. Not really my cup of tea. The color was really, really not my cup of tea. The project overall is so completely not me that it's really pretty funny. I present a lime green shrug with a ribbon-taggy collar. I haven't seamed it up yet but you get the idea.

I will finish it up and maybe bring it to work as a shop sample since we carry the main yarn, Blossom.

I've been working on a few more squares for my psychedelic afghan. They are a really good project to carry around in your purse. And they go so quickly. Very satisfying.

I have the pattern and the yarn for Butterfly just aching to be knit so I need to get a project done to justify starting another one. It's also time to start a new sock for the Six Sox Knitalong. I have more Mountain Colors Weaver's Wool Quarters that I can use for this one. The colorway is Obsidian. It's insanely beautiful like all their yarns. I am also getting impatient to start my Floral Felted Tote from the fall IK. Julia has started hers and I'm mad with jealousy. Poor Paula is languishing in a baggie somewhere. Who wants to knit plain stockinette when stripes, cables, handpainted yarn and intarsia are all beckoning?
