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!

Leading off with the most progress in the past 7 days is the Honeybee Cardigan:

And a better look at the 3 lace panels in the centre back:

It helps now I've memorised the lace pattern!

The Birch Stole plods on (although it’s now getting tricky to photograph it all):

Look at the size of the remaining yarn to get an idea of how much I’ve done since last week.

And I managed 4 rows on the Advent Calendar Stole last night (there’s an awful 3-into-9 increase that slowed me right down):

Spelled correctly this week! (oops)

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

And here’s the progress I’ve made (colour is more accurate in this photo than last week’s)

Pinned out one half to show the patterning slightly better. As of 7th April 2015.

I think 7 days is all I can manage on this (it takes a great deal of concentration and I’m increasing 6 sts every other row so it’s only going to get harder!), so I’ve switched to another long-languishing UFO.

Introducing the Advent Scarf/Stole from 2010!

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?

The Birch entrelac stole. There wasn’t a Ravelry project page for this and the only reference I can find to it on my blog is this “Wall of Shame” post from February last year. Oh, well!

Still plodding along on the Duotone Cowl… It seems like I switched from the first half pattern to the second half pattern too soon. I’ve still got quite a lot of yarn left and I’ve nearly matched the length of the first half. I’ll see how long the cowl is at the point where the halves match. If it’s the right length, I’ll finish it. If not, I’ll carry on with the second half patterning until I’ve nearly run out of yarn, then switch to the first half pattern again.
Confused? You should be!

My UFO for this week (the Shetland Stole) takes a fair amount of concentration, so I’ve only been working on it for anĀ  hour or so a day.

The good thing about a colour change yarn is you really can see any progress that’s been made!
I’m going to keep going on this for at least another week, since I’ve now got back into the rhythm of the pattern.
