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.
Pups in motion-
Go Walla, go!
Fetch, Sadie, fetch!
Good girl, Sadie.
And sheep at rest:
Handsome Frank (sporting an almost all white face these days. Weird, eh?)
Edgar on the rocks (with a twist?)
Snuggle sheeps getting their chin schritches
Chone trying to nibble my earlobe
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!
Zipper has arrived!
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.
The rounds go so much faster now that there are about 1/3 fewer stitches on the needles!
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. 🙂
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:
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-
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.
