Works (still) in Progress

I know I shouldn’t let it get to me, but I am always uneasy when I have too many projects hanging out unfinished.

Don’t get me wrong- The Stashbuster Raglan is going well,

Quite well, actually. That guy is the least of my concerns.

I still have ends to weave and zipper to install in the Huey/Franklin Oregon Vest…..

It’s lovely. And I want to wear it. But there’s that dang zipper to sew in.

And diving back further into project history is the PREVIOUS stashbuster raglan!

Dag. I love this sweater too. Its just hard to get back in the groove with that colorwork on the sleeves.

Then there is the “never was a clearly defined project in the first place, but I ought to turn it into something” category-

Its about 38″ long, 9″ wide strip of brioche stitch. I’m taking suggestions what it might want to be.

And also a bear without a face.

These little guys never look like much until they have eyes and a nose.
Then I have to do a little White Sox logo on his sweater.

Wish me luck.

Stashbuster top-down raglan sweater marches on-

I really like how it’s coming together, but it’s becoming apparent to me that there is not going to be enough of the darkest color to finish up the sleeves, so I went back to the stash to formulate a Plan B-

I think I’ve got enough of Mariah, (of Little Country Acres) to pull me through
And it’s an amazingly close match for the Border Leicester I used at the neckline.

Long live the stash!

Bits & Pieces

Oregon Vest:

Zipper has arrived!

IMG_2953

Installation to commence as soon as I can squeeze it in.

Stashbuster Top-Down Raglan:

Passed a major milestone this week- finished the raglan shaping and put the sleeve stitches on hold.

IMG_2951

The rounds go so much faster now that there are about 1/3 fewer stitches on the needles!

Spinning:

First skein of Chone! (Sadie inspecting)

You can tell it’s him by the persistent little veg bits sprinkled throughout. That’s my little Pigpen. 🙂

Off the Needles, On the Needles

Huey and Franklin vest, ABZ (all but zippered):

And a new top-down raglan cast-on poolside in Miami:

Also got a start on some splashy socks:

IMG_2946

that also got their start on vacation.

But I tell you what- I just found this book, and it might have changed my whole outlook on footcoverings-

IMG_2947

Cat Bordhi is a sock genius. Truly.

I can’t wait to give this new technique a try…. but I guess I’ve got to do the matcher for this little guy first.
