I'm joining with Kat and my fellow knitters today to take about knitting, unraveling, and…
WIP ‘Em Out Wednesday
I have this tendency to show you finished objects only. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I posted about any of my knits-in-progress. So, today, I present The WIPs.
#1. Bee Fields Shawl.
I love just about anything that Anne designs and this shawl is no exception. The yarn, from The Other Anne, is equally fabulous, so soft, so sproingy and so delicate. I have finished the set up chart and the first chart and am a little more than halfway through the second chart. I won’t kid you, this pattern is a challenge. There is lace knitting on both the right and wrong sides and some of the knitting maneuvers are reminiscent of acrobatics. But I know it will be worth it when it’s finished. And with any luck that will be before Rhinebeck.
#2. Child’s Cable Sweater.
This is for my (step)grandson, Patrick. The yarn is Peace Fleece and the pattern is a simple cabled sweater. It’s fun to knit and pretty fast going, too. I originally thought I’d have it done for his birthday at the end of this month but the call of the Bee Fields Shawl has been loud and I’ve neglected the sweater. Looks like I’ll be shopping for a birthday present instead. There’s always Christmas except that I don’t knit for Christmas. The bottom line is it will be gifted when it’s finished, whenever that may be.
#3. Corrugarter Scarf.
I feel like I’ve been knitting this FORever. The yarn is my handspun from Crown Mountain Farms Sock Hop Roving in the colorway “Twist and Shout.” The design, of course, is Paula’s. And I love it but I’m knitting on size 3s and it’s slow going.
#4. Peppermint Mocha Socks.
Mindless socks. Because there are always socks on the needles.
So, I WIPed ’em out. How about you?

Oohh…..Bee is looking lovely! I can’t wait to get her on my needles next week!
Very nice, a good mix of the challenging and the mindless. I myself am squarely behind the 8-ball, WIP-wise.
You have been busy, busy. Love them all, every one.
I can’t wait to get started on my own Bee Fields but after seeing the yarn you are using, I am now so jealous! That color is gorgeous!!
Lovely WIPs! The shawl is going to be stunning.
That’s a LOT of WIPs, and ambitious ones, too! I feel like a slacker. I *used* to knit. :/
Lots of pretty WIPs you’ve got there.
WOW…you’ve got some great WIP’s going!
I only have a couple of projects going right now–both mindless. It’s been a while since I’ve challenged myself knitting-wise.
The Bee Fields shawl is gorgeous! And a scarf on size 3’s? That’s dedication!
Is that it!?!? I came clean on my blog yesterday with SIXTEEN wips. Surely you have more…
Bee is beautiful. I’m doing her Hypoteneuse right now and loving it. Can’t wait to try more of her patterns.
Lovely projects! That shawl is going to be so beautiful! I have too many things on the needles right now.
I’ve always wanted to do one of Anne’s shawls. She’s such a wonderful designer. Bee fields happens to be my favorite of hers at the moment.
I usually have lots of things going on the needles at the same time too. Though recently, I’ve had to put some things aside that I didn’t want to because I ran out of yarn and at the time didn’t have enough money to justify buying more. Fortunately this new job I have has allowed me to get it so I can finish up those couple of lingering projects!
You’ve got some great WIPs going on there. Really like the color you are using for Bee Fields too.
Love all the WIP’s – I was thinking of making the bee stole with some of my handspun, It is one of those shawls that looks gorgeous in every color I have seen it in thus far.
corrugarter scarf from your handspun is wonderful!
Do you need a reason to give someone a handknit item? I mean… really?!
Love the Bee Shawl. I keep seeing beautiful ones. Think I can resist?
I have a tendency to only blog finished objects, too. I guess it’s just easier that way.
The Bee shawl is so pretty. I hope you are able to finish it in time for Rhinebeck!
Bee Fields is very nice…I like that edge on it!
Oh – the Bee …..To Bee or not to Bee? I think you just answered my question!
Lordy, I can’t even begin to imagine what that post would look like! I am planning on starting the Honey Bee Stole though!
Lots of great projects on your needles! I’m scared to look at some of the lingering WIPs I have laying around the house.
What a great set of WIP’s you have! I suppose you hear that all the time though. 😉
We in the blogiverse have started only showing FOs. I remember the WIP days. Actually, I liked seeing all yours. Gives more immediacy, and more continuity. You and cables are like this XX now, aren’t you?
I love your Corrugarter scarf! That yarn is so interesting. Hope it doesn’t go too slowly.. looks like you are getting close to an FO!
Great Wips. I like the Corrugater scarf. Color choice is great. I like the scarf so much I decided to make one of my own.
lookin’ good, lookin’ GOOD!
