WIP Wednesday 11/23/16

I’m now up to a total of five WIPs, knitting-wise: 1) the sweater that makes me itch, 2) the too big for my mother-in-law socks, 3) a cotton mix scarf that I don’t have a photo of, and these two…

The Lizzie Sweater-Dress

I had this big plan to knit Lizzie a sweater dress thing for her birthday. I talked last week about that, but I’ll reiterate: she picked the yarn, I picked the pattern. It’s a simple bottoms-up with a split front and back. I winged it and just sort of started, choosing the size based on her measurements. And, look! I’ve made lots of progress. Just a couple inches from splitting off the sleeves.

Yeah, it’s too small for her. I managed to get her to sit still just long enough to measure it against her and it’s clearly about and inch too narrow per side. So that’s now put aside, waiting for me to pick a new recipient for it.

The New Lizzie Sweater-Dress

Not wanted her to be without something handmade for her birthday, I started a new sweater dress using Worsted. She picked out these colors, I’ll have you note. Bit, okay, way, way, too bright for my taste.

The pattern is Mud Princess from the Wrestless Knitter. The garter stitch stripes continue on the end of the body and the edges of the sleeves. It’s knitting up really quick so a birthday finish shouldn’t be out of the question since, you know, I’m not actually working on anything else at all right now.

 

Programming note: The next week or so is all about our trip to Germany in October. You may see a different post here or there on a different topic, but they’re all queued up and ready to go.
