This is a story about the “unfinished” projects in my life, some of which have haunted me for 3 years, it is a true story whether you choose to believe or not.
The first chapter is about a fine tunic style project that would be perfect for spring. I am currently working on taming it so that I can finish it:
If you are interested in trying to wrangle this one in as well, you can find it at bijoubasinranch.com. It is suppose to be made with yak yarn but I am knitting it with Lion Brand Superwash Merino. It is a gorgeous lace pattern and not too difficult, I just have a short attention span and have trouble doing charts for long periods of time.
I almost have the back done- I CAN do it before spring!!
Chapter number 2 is about 1 LONELY sock. I am truly neglectful of socks. I have whats called “second sock syndrome”, it could easily be cured by doing the “2 socks at one time”method – I have just been too lazy to learn this.
This sock has been lonely for awhile now. The pattern is in Brave New Knits which can be purchased at knitpicks.com or practically any other “book” or knitting site.
The yarn is Stroll from Knit Picks in the color Granny Smith-very nice sock yarn.
Chapter 3 is about a gang of felted fruit bags called “Elegant Edibles”. This was purchased as a kit from Knit Picks probably about a year ago. It came with all it’s own materials just begging to be finished up -including patterns, yarn, zippers and beads. Truly sad! I have almost finished 1 kiwi and half done with an orange, the rest…..? Well, they haven’t even been looked at.
Our final and most disturbing chapter involves a wrap that has lost it’s pattern and identity. It has been on needles for over 3 years! It is made of Tencel and has many lovely stitches that might never be exposed. I have NO idea where the pattern is, who wrote it or what it’s name is-scary. How do I continue to live?! while this is shoved away in a bag, way back in a closet somewhere!
I love looking at other knitting blogs to see whats on the needles of others. I am hoping that by creating this post I will be inspired to be a better knitter and finish these poor lonely soles! (the sock truly has a lonely sole)
To be continued……..
