WIP Wednesday

I've spent the past two days nursing a nasty cold...for me to sit on the sofa and do nothing but knit and watch movies for 2 days is extremely rare. The good thing is it let me focus on several projects and get to a new point on my Mountain View Cardigan. I am knitting it in one piece (less seaming thank you very much). I finished the body of the sweater yesterday and have now cast on for the sleeves.

I also bound off on the jumper I'm making for Miss America - now she wants it to be strapless which I just don't think will fly but I'll weave in the ends and block it and see how she feels. Not worth taking a picture until it is on her body - it's a shapeless blob right now.
I just ordered yarn to make 3 more Wallabies - yes, I've been bitten by the bug and I promised my godsister a full set for her kids.

I love the green in this sweater! My guess is that the strapless jumper won't stay up. I forget - is it knit with elastic yarn? How would ribbon straps look? Can't wait to see it!

Estella, I see you are making your cardigan in green....does that mean it's for ME?????!!!!! It looks beautiful.

Jennifer said...

Um... did you just call your daughter's body a shapeless blob?

; )

Love the knitting. Don't forget to give your body a rest. Stretch. Stretch. Knit.

Well, since it sounds like Jennifer won't be doing a Wallaby, I'm glad to hear I can get my Wallaby fix here. lol
