Works In Progress!

Thought I would join in for WIP Wednesday this week as it is half term and I have a little time and I have LOADS of WIP's all of a sudden!!

First up and nearly finished is my cardigan - a - I am onto the arms and I hope to have it finished at the weekend.

Secondly, I am all set to embark on the Outfit-a-long with Andi Satterlund.  The idea is that you knit a garment and sew a garment that are designed to wear together.  I have decided on Myrna by Andi that I will knit in Malabrigo worsted in Fuscia.  I have also decided not to sew a dress, as I don't think I would wear it.  So I have settled on Delphine - a skirt by Tilly Walnes in her new book 'Love at First Stitch' and some fabric I had in stash.

It all starts on the 1st, so technically, it is not a WIP at the moment - just an idea in progress!!  If you fancy it, please join us - there are links at the side to Andi's blog or look up the untangled knots group on Ravelry.

Thirdly, and again only just a WIP (have only done a couple of rows and so have not even taken a photo!) is my Christmas jumper along again with Andi.  This time the idea is to knit a jumper for Christmas, and to start now doing it bit by bit to a timetable. My project page has my progress and a copy of this timetable:
Rib on body - July 1st
M1 pattern on body - July 1st
Bulk of body - August 1st
Start of M2 - August 1st
Sleeve 1 - September 1st
Sleeve 2 - September 1st
Yoke finish M2 - October 1st
Neck - November 1st

I think I may try to blog once a month about my progress - I will try to keep to the 1st of each month.
Lastly, I still have my tunic top all cut out waiting for sewing together.  Maybe, just maybe, I will have it done for Friday!!

I have finished some items and will post about those on Friday, when hopefully, I will have some more!
It is fairly dismal weather here in the South East of England - so hopefully, lots of crafting time.  The boys are playing nicely at the moment, so I shall make the most of it.
I will link up with Tami and visit everyone - if you want to join in the link is on the side!  Also linking with KCCO.


  1. Good luck with your wip's, they sound great! The cardigan looks beautiful!

  2. Lovely WIP's :) I like the idea of making an outfit in one go, unfortunately I can't sew lol

  5. Oh so many WIPs. Your fushia yarn is gorgeous. I'm sure it will look wonderful when it's knitted up. I'm really impressed with the organisation of your projects. I am guessing this is partly due to you being a teacher and have all that planning to do.
