Holding Out.

I've got another finished object waiting in the wings to show off but I'm saving those for another day in favor of a progress post. I feel like stuff ought to appear at least once before it pops up as a finished project.

DSC_1336As usual, I'm working on a bunch of stuff all at once. This is an oldie, a bit of lace that's been unfinished for over a year. Ugh!

This is Juno Regina. It's not quite half way finished but I already know I'm going to love it. I love the color of the yarn and the combination of beads in blues and silver. It really deserves to be finished and I know that if I can find the right rhythm for the middle section that this will be finished in no time.

DSC_1334There's something new on the needles too. This is the Baby Ferris by Norah Gaughan in KP Swish DK. What do you think of the color? It's called Tidepool Heather and I've been going back and forth about it but now that I'm actively working with it I think I really like it. It's not the usual color for baby sweaters and I like that.

Anyway, this is the first 2 pieces of the sweater - both for the back. A 2-piece back! I knew that there was interest in the front but, until I started working on it I had no idea that the construction was anything out of the ordinary. This could be more fun than I anticipated.

DSC_1335Finally, there's a sock. Isn't there always? This is the second modified Nutkin for my S-I-L. Really, it's a Nutkin leg with a simple foot I like better.

The yarn is String Theory in a color called Isis. I'm not getting the Isis thing at all. When I see these socks all I think of is Monet's Waterlilies. It's a good thing.

So what are you working on?

I've got a plain sock and a lace shawl going. String Theory is good stuff. I bought some a few weeks ago but I haven't actually used it yet.

I see a lot of blue stuff there!

I like the color in the sweater. Nora's construction is always so different.

I like your interpretation of the Nutkins. I usually leave the feet plain in my socks as well.

Lovely job all around!

Great idea to make Nutkins foot plain. Maybe the name should be Iris in a Blender. ;-)

I've got many languishing WIP's, but am making some headway on my Mondo Cable Pulli.

I love what you have otn!

I have a baby sweater going, and need to get it done and on its way. Extraction is planned a few days from now. Good thing I'm knitting a larger size, eh?
