I have too many WIPs to choose from when I want to knit/crochet/spin. One of the consequences of startitis is multiple WIPs, more WIPs than I can handle. I just counted. I have a dozen active or semi-active (that get picked up once or twice a week) WIPs.
First off is this tam I designed. I tried knitting it once before, but frogged it because the yarn didn’t suit the project. Now I’m trying it again with a different yarn. This one is going to take me a while to complete because of the small gauge and part of the design is cables.
This hat I cast on today. It should only take a day or two (if I focus mainly on it). It’s going to become a stranded toque.
This is the last hat I’m currently working on. I also have a small bin of yarn waiting to be knit into hats. This one is knit in broken rib stitch.
This is one of the few scarves/cowls I’m working on. I started this one when it was too hot to knit with wool. The yarn is made of viscose. Now that the AC is fixed (YAY!) this WIP probably won’t get as much attention.
This one doesn’t get much attention. It’s going to become a 2×2 rib scarf. I’m knitting this one continental, so I work on it when I need a break from knitting english.
This scarf hasn’t been getting as much attention as it deserves. I think it’s because I haven’t memorized the pattern repeat yet. I’ve decided to set it asside for now and come back to it when I have fewer WIPs.
Now for a crochet project. This is a crochet cowl. I like having a small crochet project on the go because I find that when my wrists are sore from knitting I’m still able to crochet. Different movement I guess.
I’ve been working on this blanket for months. Sorry no pictures until it’s future owner receives it, I want the design to be a surprise. With the heat I haven’t been able to work on it the past 2 weeks, but now, with AC, I’m going to try to make up for lost time.
This is the first of the semi-active WIPs. I pull it out every now and then and knit a row or two. When it grows up it’s going to be a cardigan that’s destined to be a Christmas present.
I started this sweater in May when I wanted to work on something for me. I’m going to have to buy more yarn (that will hopefully match), but I’m not there yet. For some reason it photographed grey. It’s actually white and brown.
This double knit blanket square is progressing really slowly. I can normally knit a square in 2 or 3 days, but I can’t seem to knit more than one row at a time.
Last but not least, my spinning WIP. I’ve been struggling with this one lately. My joins keep falling apart. I think it’s getting too heavy. I think I’m going to have to slide off the cop and start a new single.
My WIPs keep getting tangled together. I think I have to focus on finishing one or two projects at a time and not starting any new ones until my number of WIPs is down to a manageable level.
