WiP Wednesday: Sock This!

I’m going to take a page out of the book of my bloggy heroine, Turtlegirl76, and post first thing-ish on Wednesday morning (gym first. blog second.). Here’s what I’m working on, photos as of first thing on Wednesday morning:

Incredible Shrinking Barts

Yeah, they look the same as they did on my last post. Still waiting for the USPS to do its thing. :)

Christmas Class Socks

I could finish these in a heartbeat, but need to put them down right now so they’re in the proper place for the class to be knitting along with me. They should be finished by the end of the weekend.

Christmas Presents

Dishcloth for my friend Bill’s sister. Will go with the two completed hanging mitered towels from the new Mason-Dixon book. Part of a set.

Noro Scarf

This has been getting some decent time. It’s most certainly going to need a nice blocking, but that’s fine with me. And yeah, I’ll go up a needle size the next time I knit it. But otherwise, I’m liking it just fine, thanks!

Yin Yang Bolero aka Debate Knitting

The Presidential debates got me past the arm decreases, so there’s not much left. My mojo on this sweater left with the warm weather, but I’m close enough that I may even be able to polish it off on Election Day. Wouldn’t that be cool?

And finally, (drumroll, please!) The Basement!

I’ve been chipping away. I have more crap than space and Oh. My. God. I need to not buy any more fabric until I sew up a goodly chunk of what I already have. I’m itching to sew again, and I have a stack of stuff that’s already basted and ready to roll. I just need to get all set up and ready to go again. Progress is being made, slowly but surely.

Hey, nobody ever said that project monogamy was required!

Oh, and the most important WiP? I renewed at our gym yesterday and went to a Yoga class this morning. Yay!

I can relate about going on a fabric diet. I hand quilt everything as I have a Singer Featherweight for sewing. I asked hubby to get me a sewing machine I can use for macine quilting for Christmas. If I don't step it up I will never use all my fabric! And I'm not even going to start on the yarn.... : - )

LOVE the Noro scarf, it's grown considerably since the last time I got to paw at it!

SJ said...

Wow, they are kidding when they call that yarn instant gratification. Those socks went so fast considering everything else you've been working on!

Can't wait to see the Ty-Dy sweater complete. I think an election day finish would be very appropriate.

(My word verification starts with "kfb"!)

Cool projects! The Noro scarf is especially striking!

The basement is looking great! What a wonderful area to pass the time in. I have a few baskets of with quilt pieces in them that are pinned together. I bet the pins are part of the fabric by now! UGH.

I really need to get that Mason Dixon book. Love the wash cloth (and you know I love the mitered towells too!!) Enabler! ;)
