WIP Wednesday

Well, after a short absence due to holiday and then recovery-from-holiday this is going to be a brief update.

I’ve been pottering along on the Honeybee Cardigan:

Wow, that will really need a good wash and block!

As you can see I’m well into the yoke now, so all that remains is to finish that, work the neck and button bands and make the pockets. “That’s all“, she says!

There has been a corresponding lack of progress on everything else, of course, so all I have to show are these couple of rows on the Advent Stole:

A tricky lace pattern makes for very slow going.

And that is all for now!

Spelled correctly this week! (oops)

So, here’s last week’s UFO project, the Iznik, I Heart You shawl 7 days ago:

Oh look, it’s a big lump of lace! I’ve only got 4 “days” of pattern to go so I’m not quite sure why this stalled. I intend to press on and try and get it finished this week or next.

So, how are your UFOs progressing?
