In my Ravelry group, we’ve spent the month of June wrestling WIPs (works in progress) and I’ve been pretty successful. I still have a couple of goals yet to meet but overall I feel I did well, especially with the crazy hours I’ve worked during the month. We’re likely going to continue to wrestle WIPs during July as well if anyone wants to join in the fun. Here are some some pics of the FOs. Lots more pics on individual project pages if you ravel and on flickr.
1. Stripe Study by Veera Välimäki.
As blog readers will remember, I was suffering from lack of knitting mojo for a while there. A friend decided to send me two skeins of yarn (red and grey) and the Stripe Study pattern to help get my mojo back. Great friend, eh? It definitely helped me get working on reviving that mojo. Thanks Adrienne for my Stripe Study kit.
2. Entrelac Scarf by Lisa Shroyer
I took a class at Vogue Knitte Live with Rosemary Drysdale to learn to Entrelac. It’s a lot easier than I expected and quite fun. I finished this project a while back but just never got around to photographing it.
3. Akimbo designed by Stephen West
Quality Cousin Time
I got my cousin to take pics of me today with my many finished objects. He’s visiting from Syracuse for the week and we’ve been hanging which is kind of cool since I barely ever see him. He’s 15 and I guess I get along well with the teenagers. Probably to do with my general immaturity. Anyhow, turns out that my cousin, Kory, had learned to crochet (just the very basics) in a home ec class. He saw this purse that I’d crocheted and decided that he wanted to knit one for his girlfriend. So with my help we actually turned out a decent purse. He sewed in the lining and everything himself and I was impressed as I couldn’t sew at 15. I can barely sew now.
Here’s my clutch:
Here are some fun pictures of said cousin as after he finished shooting me, I took over and took a bunch of pictures of him. He enjoyed posing.
