September Yarn Summary

I haven’t posted so much about my knitting lately. I spend most of my spare time (such as it is) these days knitting. I’m going to attempt a monthly update of all things yarn, for those who are interested. If yarn isn’t your thing, this is probably boring. Also, Ravelry links won’t be much use to you if you aren’t on Ravelry, which you totally should be if you knit and/or crochet.

Projects Completed in September

Green Tea Lady Sweater This is too delicate to wear when playing with Margaret, but it’s very nice for work.


Swallowtail Shawl: This turns out to be just the thing to wear in the office when where it is often cool enough that I need a little something to keep me warm, but a cardigan is too much.


Mousie A good use for scraps, and Margaret likes it. Warren does not, partly because the use of sport weight yarn rendered it rat sized, but it’s not for him.


Projects Started in September

Mr. Greenjeans: This one is nearing completion, I’m on the second sleeve and after that it’s just picking up a zillion stitches (ugh!) around the front edge and doing a bunch of rows in ribbing.

Ishbel: I’m well into the lace section, and making an extra large version of this small shawl. The plain center shows off the complex color of the yarn IMO.


Ongoing WIPs

Juno Regina Scarf I’ve been at this for over a year. It’s silk lace weight on size 0 needles and I was stupid and now don’t dare move it from my desk for fear of my center-pull ball collapsing. Incremental forward progress does continue, and it is approaching scarf length.

Shipwreck Shawl I got a bit discouraged over this one now that I’m in the very slow going beaded netting portion. It will be worth it when it’s done, but for now it’s something I’ll have to work on in fits and starts to keep myself from going crazy.

Looking Forward

I started a blanket for the boy this past weekend, but that’s an October project, so I should blog about it in an October summary if I write one. I also have vast plans for baby and toddler sweaters, gift knitting for various folks, and an Ishbel for Margaret out of the yarn she grabbedselected from Mind’s Eye Yarns.
