WIP Wednesday: So Old It’s Basically New, Right?

This week’s project is one that ya’ll haven’t seen in a loooooonnnggg time.  I started this sweater back in….August?  I took it (this particular portion of it, in fact) on my backpacking trip in September and I think September is the last time I worked a stitch on the thing.IMG_6988

This is the first sleeve of the Pintuck Cardigan by Bristol Ivy published in knit.purl’s Fall/Winter 2014 issue and the yarn is Hikoo Rylie in Kelp.  I’m making the second size.IMG_6991

After I pulled this from the WIP basket I had to reassess where I am in the process.  I have the 70 required stitches, which means I’m done increasing and it’s about 17” long which means that basically, I have to knit another inch then start the cap shaping and it’s done!  After one more sleeve, some blocking and seaming, I’ll have another finished sweater (and this one is for me!).

WIP Wednesday: Back to Our Regularly Scheduled Programming

We’re back to the sweater this week folks, the projects from last week have been wrapped up (literally) and shipped off.

Now that the preview is live, I can actually show you what sweater I’m making instead of having to be all sneaky about it!  The Pintuck Cardigan by Bristol Ivy is in the knit.purl fall issue (formerly knit.wear).IMG_5425

Hannah has already finished her sweater and it looks so fantastic on her!  She did a great job and now I just want to finish mine that much more (not to mention the weather is starting to get a little cooler and this will be the best throw-on-over-everything cardigan I’ve made yet).

WIP Wednesday: New Projects!

Man oh man, it seems like all of my WIP Wednesdays lately have been projects that I’ve talked about for weeks or even months.  But not this week!  No siree. I’ve got some new things to share this week.IMG_4731

Two new things to be exact. Last Thursday I cast-on for one of my 2014 Goals projects – something beaded.  I’ve had the yarn and the beads ready for….oh…about a year now? And I figured no better time than the present to this baby started so that perhaps I can finish it in the year I deemed it a goal. I’m planning to make the Olive Garden shawl.  So far I’m in the luscious garter section and I love how the lace weight yarn is working up in this cozy stitch.IMG_4732

The yarn is Bittersweet Woolery’s Stardust Lace (I’m using the leftover yarn from my Compass Rose Shawl for this) and the beads are a super fun bright yellow!IMG_4689

Friday during our “lunch break” Hannah and I cast on for our little KAL – a cardigan that will be revealed soon so I can’t say too much but let me tell you, the yarn is awesome!  We’re both using Hikoo Rylie, hers in the Periwinkle colorway and mine is in the Kelp colorway.IMG_4734
