WIPs and UFOs


Sounds vaguely kinky, doesn’t it? Hmmmm… just thought I’d post pics of these to spur (no pun intended) me on to completion (oh boy, that sounds really bad – didn’t know knitting would be so much fun, LOL). The first one here below is the front of the T-shirt in Melissa Leapman’s Hot Knits – an excellent book, by the way ! For a slender woman, she sure knows how to make her patterns for women of all sizes and those of us with , ahem, a little more than they’d like , salute her:)

The next two are my first attempt at mosaic knitting – a pattern from the Winter ’05 edition of Knitter’s magazine – I just love their patterns, and again, they do make them for women of all sizes, not just model types, thank goodness! Also – a close-up of the pattern. So cool – obviously I use colors that I think will work with my weird coloring:)

Finally – here’s my first attempt at knitting a bag I’m hoping to felt into something decent. I’m using the Knitter’s pattern to get it started, but am going to do something a little longer possibly. We’ll see. How much can you screw up a bag (uh oh… famous last words).

Good news is, I’ve got those briefs done and only have a couple of motions and responses to type up this weekend. Plus, maybe a couple of visits if I’m lucky – and we are singing tomorrow, so this should be a nice weekend. (Never mind that I have some yarn waiting for me at my LYS. I’m going to ask them if I can do a little “mini-commercial” for them on my blog. If they give me permission, I’ll post pics of them soon.
Well, as the divine Ms. Howell says, “Knit on!”

Wife of one, mother of six, Grammy to eight (so far) and lawyer for many young persons, I love to sing, read, knit and walk. My politics are somewhat left of Marx and I want to hear what you think, too!

  1. Hi Joan, You have been very busy. Love the T and the mosaic is very cool. Hope to see you too at MS&W. Look for me, I’ll be wearing the navy FLAK sweater. 🙂
