Work In Progress Wednesday Number 31

Well, I don't have a lot to show for myself this week *laughs* Most of my time has been spent focusing on Christmas knitting to try and avoid a mad panic in a couple of weeks ;)

So, Cria hasn't had more than a couple of rows worth of attention, but I am itching to pick it back up which is definitely a good sign. And I haven't forgotten about my fuzzy ballet sweater, really! I just put it to one side when the Cria motivation kicked in and haven't got round to finishing it off. Well, that's something that can wait until deadline knitting is done *smiles*


However, I have started mum's scarf. I haven't done very much, but I wanted a relatively simple but small knit to pick up when I need a break from the present knitting, and this seemed like the perfect project. Plus, mum would probably like it sooner rather than later *laughs*

It's also nice to be working with yarn that isn't dark blue this week ;) It's Colinette Art, a wool and bamboo blend and I'm enjoying knitting with it.


Mum - I hope you like how it is turning out!

As ever, you know where to go for more works in progress and yarn along posts ;) Although you may have noticed the lack of a book in my pictures for the yarn along - unfortunately I am rubbish at balance and can't get enough knitting done if I'm enjoying a book too *laughs* I know some people swear by audio books, but I read so quickly that audio books always feel so slow to me. Ah well, plenty of time to read soon!

  6. That is so pretty! I am in the craziness of christmas knitting as well...although I am posting pictures of it all...and hoping no one is actually paying attention :-) I second the reading fast bit. I always feel like the audio book moves so slow! And sometimes the reader totally kills the book for me...so I prefer to read myself.

  15. Very pretty; I am sure you mom will love it. I do love audiobooks, but only because then I can finish a book and knit. They do take longer, but I can fit reading/listening in at otherwise busy times. Of course, right now it is all knitting all the time.

  18. I try to get into audiobooks but my mind tends to wander since my computer isn't loud enough for me. Being hard of hearing is a drag at times. Other times it's a great way to pretend I didn't hear something stupid. ;)

    A perfect gift!

  20. Is it weird if that scarf makes me wish I were your mum? ;) Great yarn, and I love the stitch texture and softly-spiky border design.

  22. The yarn looks lovely, I'm sure mum will be very happy. As for gift knitting, well, I started around a month or more ago and I'm still panicking! Hoping to get another 3 hat/scarf/glove combo's started AND finished, plus finished the ones I'm half through!! Eek.

  24. It's true that audiobooks are slow, but it's nice that someone does all the voices of the characters for you. I had a book that was set in Ireland, so it was nice to hear the irish accents!

    Love the scarf and the yarn!

  25. Oohhh, what pretty yarn! The colors are so amazing. Love the edging, too. I have had to set aside my sweater knitting, too. It will be gift knitting 24/7 now.

  26. dark blue/black knitting does require a little break now and again! These beautiful colours look like the perfect rest for your eyes.
