I am never ready for Wednesday's Yarn-Along and WIP Wednesday. And by ready, I mean having a project at a point where it can be photographed without someone questioning what it is. Also, compared to my sister, I am miserable at photgraphy. So I never feel like I am sharing some of the amazing stuff that I see people share at Ginny's and Tami's.
What I worked on over the weekend
I had a really good retreat this past weekend, but I still haven't caught up on sleep. I managed to get a lot of crocheting done in between sessions and during the afternoon recreation. And frustrated with how a pattern was working out, I pulled out a sheet of paper and sketched out an idea that I liked. It isn't really earth-shattering or anything, but the women who were watching me were astounded.
The poncho I'm knitting "Boho et Belle" has 20 sections, and I've nearly finished the first. I love the stockinette portion, as the yarn feels lovely and smooth. The only problem is my slow knitting. In order to feel productive, I switch between crafts. Hence the next WIP- more cupcakes.
All the cupcake bottoms are finished, along with a few extras just in case. I have to dig through my stash for pastel colors- these were requested, and I am trying to minimize the yarn I have to buy. Which is why I'm stash-shopping. I have at least 3 pastels that are easily accessible, and maybe 3 more that I know I have somewhere... I'll keep you posted. They'll definitely end up in a FO Friday :)
Thanks for stopping by-- be sure to visit Ginny's and Tami's for more yarny goodness!
