Catching up

It seems to me that I have a few very exciting and beautiful WIPs just begging to be finished.

 

The Massey Wrap and Sunny Spread Blanket have been languishing since summer, poor things!

On top of that, I have a few new projects which need a bit of attention. I've been doing a lot of starting over simply because I haven't bothered to knit swatches, do the math, or stop periodically and evaluate my work. Unacceptable.

All this to say that I'm going to be a little quiet over the next few weeks as I get these things sorted out. I will check in with an FO shortly, but other than that, I'll be quietly knitting away on some projects, old and new.

For now, here are some wonky log cabin blocks that I sewed for the bee that I'm in. We used this tutorial.

I love the funky fabrics that Pia chose!

I'll be in touch soon!

Your WIPS are looking beautiful! I can't wait to see the finished projects.
Have a great week.

Adorei o xale; ponto muito bonito.
E os quadradinhos? Amei:))

You DID make three blocks...you're the best! I'm so happy you liked the fabric. We may need sunglasses to view the finished product, but I decided a bit of whimsy was needed this month!
Thanks lady!

The Massey Wrap and Sunny Spread Blanket are wonderful textured knitting. They almost look...well, crunchy, but crunchy in a good, soft, fibery way!

I love those log cabin blocks!

Your blocks are super cute! I think the non-symmetrical nature of the blocks makes them feel more organic (for log cabin) and hand crafted.

Enjoy sorting things out!!! ;-)

As I wrote in my blog recently, I think each knitter has an optimum number of WIPs or UFOs. For me it is 6. Sometimes one feels a need to buckle down and finish things up and that can be very satisfying. I'm looking forward to the results!

Love those bee blocks!

I have to admit that this whole fall has been a parade of gauge issues for me, and almost all of them resulted from a failure to knit real swatches (I often do a sort of pseudo-swatch - that habit leads me astray so frequently that I really must end that practice). Funnily enough, just today I was thinking, "Grumperina would never have this kind of trouble." Seriously! Sorry to hear it's been otherwise.

I just started a test knit that really depends on proper gauge, and I'm proud to say I properly swatched and blocked before casting on.

Good luck getting your projects sorted!
