FO's and WIP's (Image HEAVY)

First up, I finished my Slouchy Entrelac Tam:

Apologies for the nightgown and scummy mirror.

  • Yarn: Noro Silk Garden (2 balls)
  • Modifications: Pom pom! I did one extra round of 8 stitch squares to use up more yarn and add more floppiness. I blocked it on a dinner plate.
  • Verdict: Love it! I've worn it a million times (well, not really)
  • Link to my Ravelry entry for this project here.

Second in line, my Moderne Jacket is finished! And I didn't run out of yarn! Phew!

  • Yarn: This was a stash extravaganza! Cascade 220 Heathers and random Japanese stash yarn (cashmere content)
  • Modifications: I fudged a few of the numbers in an attempt to get between two sizes. It didn't really work, lol. No buttons or buttonholes.
  • Verdict: I didn't do a great job seaming because I'm not quite sure where to pick up stitches with crochet. Also, the seams might be a bit tight in some places. Again, I'm not super experienced with crochet...yet. I think it looks quite adorable without buttons as an open "jacket" thing. My favorite thing about making this was how much yarn it ate up! I only have one ball left of the Cascade 220 and just a scrap length of the blue Japanese yarn! Woot!

First up in the WIP's department:

We have a nearly finished soaker! All I need to do is figure out how many stitches to pick up around the legholes and do some ribbing. The pattern doesn't specify how many, all it says is pick them up "evenly."

Let's just say, I've already tried that once or twice. I'll figure it out eventually.

  • Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Worsted...Hand dyed by me!
  • Modifications thus far: None
  • Verdict thus far: Cute and easy!

And finally, yet another WIP:

  • Yarn: Sugar 'n Cream (stash yarn!)
  • Verdict thus far: Oh, so very kitschy! Love it!
You might have noticed that I am all about the crochet lately. I'm sure it's only because it eats up tons of yarn and is fast, fast, FAST! I'm still predominantly a knitter, but I am loving the change and challenge (and it's good for the brain!). :)
