A Pile

A pile of WIPs, that is. And it looks something like this:

WIPs 6/5/13
Are four things too many?

The pink is my Stephanie's Wrap, pulled out of hibernation. The cream is a knitted piece that makes me want to throw everything. The granny in the front is the beginnings of a Rectangular Sampler Blanket, part of a CAL that just finished over at Underground Crafter's blog. Last is my wedding ripple, and I am convinced that it will be finished by August.

Too many rows of Knitting
It will be pretty when done, but I still dislike the rows upon rows of knitting
I'm listening to The Fellowship of the Ring still, mainly because I can listen and don't need to focus too much on learning the story, since I've known the story since 6th grade or so. I'm nearly finished, so Two Towers will be up next. Also, I love the voice of the narrator, which I am convinced can make or break an audio book.

In more yarn related news, I properly stated my June Goals in the Cold Sheep group on Ravelry.
  1. Finish knitting poncho-- commissioned item, on section 8 of 20
  2. Make Calorimetry for a friend
  3. Finish rectangular sampler blanket from stash yarn
  4. Use up at least 6 skeins on wedding ripple to be about halfway done-- not sure if I have enough yarn for this…
  5. Get to third section of Stephanie’s Wrap
  6. Make at least 3 dishcloths & 2 coaster sets from cotton that is hanging out.
  7. Buy no new yarn, unless to finish any of the above projects.
So far, only 5 days into June, and I'm doing pretty good. I'm on section 10 of the knitted poncho, finished & gifted the Rectangular Sampler (pics on Friday), hooked 2 new dishcloths-- ready to make more!- and nearly used up 2 skeins for the Wedding Ripple. 

Linking with Tami & Ginny for the Wednesday Link-ups!


  1. you might not like the rows and rows of knitting but it sure is pretty :)

  2. I did have to giggle at the cream one making you want to throw things! I totally understand that feeling.

  3. I hope the cream-colored knitting doesn't drive you too crazy! It is certainly very pretty. :)

  4. You are so right about the voice of the narrator ... you can get free audiobooks at some sites, but they're volunteer-read, and sometimes it's just horrendous! I'd much rather get an audiobook read by a trained actor!

  5. Nice projects. It's good to have a few different things going to keep you entertained and so you can have a break from the things that make you crazy. The knitting sure is pretty and I'd like to see more of that gorgeous ripple.
    Enjoy listening.


I love knowing that you stopped by!
