Warm Woolies Wednesday

I’m feeling kind of ooky today, and it’s been miserably hot in the lab all week, so I’m really not feeling the bloggy love tonight.  But despite the fact that I’m not down with sharing about my 100 Woolies project right now, I think it’s been good for me overall to feel the pressure to have something to post every Wednesday.  I think I knit more items this week than I have in a single week to date and that’s a good feeling.  What’s also a good feeling, is clearing out an old WIP that I have had hanging around since last April (WTF! I did mention I had bad habits, right?).  Say hello to the Warm Woolies Cardigan Coat/Sweater (on Ravelry here & in my Ravelry notebook here):

 

 

 

Like I said, this little guy had been hanging out in my Warm Woolies project stash since last April with only 1/2 a sleeve and the button placket left to complete.  So this past weekend, while R. Darling was away kayaking, I broke it out and finished it up.  I’m really happy with how it turned out and it feels so good to know it’s going to get used and not just sit in my rubbermaid tub for another year!  Even though I liked this project, it eats a ton of yarn and I’m not really in a hurry to make another one.  I think I’ll stick to socks for now in order to make my goal.  Speaking of which, I knit 2.5 pairs of socks as well since last Wednesday (too tired to take photos today).  I think that brings me up to 31.5 items towards my goal of one hundred for the year.  Realistically, I don’t think I’m going to make it, but I’m sure going to give it a try!!

 

Hope all of you are having a great week so far!

  1. The coat is so cute! I think the up side of procrastination is bumping into an almost-finished project and being in the mood to finish it (even if it’s a year or two after starting it). Total satisfaction. I have unfinished projects stashed all over the house. :-)

  2. What an adorable little cardigan! I can see that it would eat lots of yarn. But, very heartwarming to know it will be worn, and loved.

    This makes me all warm and fuzzy….gross!

  3. Oh man, one more item for my queue (cannot spell that w/out spell check to save my soul). That’s a very cute little jacket. Got to love garter stitch!

  4. The coat is divine and the lucky little person will be forever thankful.

    It’s okay not to feel bloggy. I am just getting back into the groove myself. I can’t wait to catch up with everyone.

    Get out of the funk and have a great Friday!

  5. What a lovely little cardi! Someone will be very happy to receive and wear it! I admire your unselfish knitting and wish it would rub off on me. I think every single one of my wip’s is for me! I’m so selfish!

  7. Congratulations! It’s a great way to start the year, and so inspiring to the rest of us sluggards with partially-finishied projects! [pfp’s??] Maybe now I’ll finish the vest I made last August [I know] that only needs the shoulders seams done [a problem] and the pockets sewn on. Do I hear a “You Go, Girl!”
