WIP Wednesday … projects gone awry

by Aimee on October 10, 2007

First, we will start with the Tilted Duster. See that needle there? That is the unfinished collar. I have like an inch and a half to go. I have already put in one of the button holes. But then I ran out of yarn. No, I am not kidding. More is on the way…Zonda rules. I emailed her pretty late on Monday night and she mailed the yarn out yesterday. Same state – so as long as the post office doesn’t hate me today, I should have the collar done tonight. Until then, it is in time out.

Yes, I COULD sew in the sleeves, but I am not going to. I am working on some new boyfriend socks instead.

But wait, those look great! You thought I said projects gone awry. Well, look down there.

Failed BB Sock

See that? I actually have 2 socks started. The first I started on a size 2. I wasn’t pleased, so I dropped to a size 1 and viola! Happiness. The beauty of the toe up sock is that it is both project AND swatch all in one!


Well, it makes an excellent bed, Mom!
Rozz seems to like the duster anyway. And yes, that is what the end of my couch looks like – a pile of fiber related stuff. Actually both ends are like that and I have space in the middle for me. I like it this way.

My couch looks the same way! The hubby requested a couch he could “lay down on” when we got married. BTW he’s 6’2″. It’s a LOOOOnnnng couch and now it’s filled with needles, yarns, yarn bags, cats and myself (in the evenings). I’m telling ya, knitting couches are the way of the future.
