I'm heading out to take advantage of this nice weather and work in the garden. But I'm really enjoying participating in WIP Wednesdays partly to keep myself accountable on WIPs I wish to finish, as well as to check out the list of other lovely projects.
I'm still working my way through this list which I posted two weeks ago. . . . . 4 down, 5 to go, hopefully 2 more done by this Friday.
But I've been temporarily sidetracked by this little beauty:
|Thanks for the pomegranates Betsy! And thanks to Angie for the Citron inspiration!|
The Claudia Hand Painted Yarn is called "Rubies Playing" so I named my project Ruby Citron in Ravelry, but I may have to change it to Pomegranate Citron. Not only is it the color of pomegranate juice, but also the yarn is staining my fingers as I knit, just like when I juice our pomegranates. I've never had that happen with a knitting project before. Hopefully, it doesn't mean the gorgeous color of the yarn will change when I finish knitting it and wash it and block it.
I mentioned in an earlier post that I had trouble with the cast on, but once I got going it was highly addiciting.
I finished the first section waiting for trick-or-treaters. Unlike past years, we actually had quite a few costumed kids knock on the door. I'm happy about that because it means we don't have too much leftover candy around to tempt me.
I finished the second section watching the Giants win the World Series! Yay Giants!
My progress will slow as each section grows larger, but I hope to finish in time to wear it during the holidays.
