WIP Wednesday: Ignore the Vest Edition

Does the Dream Stripes shawl look a little bigger? I spent a wee bit of time knitting on it yesterday. The pattern is so easy that I’ve memorized it already. Of course I’m not actually knitting the pattern as written. I discovered in the helpful projects a rewritten version that makes sense to me so that’s what I’m doing. 

I haven’t picked the vest up in ages. I don’t know why I get to the last bit of knitting on a project and just stop. It makes no sense. I’ve got to get it done so I may as well do it. Maybe I’ll put it on the agenda for tomorrow. 

So what are you working on? Do you ever stall for no reason?

  1. my closet is full of unfinished projects… they mostly need only putting together, or work away the lose ends, but it’s not exciting anymore, so i stall finishing them…. i never follow a pattern, just improvise, so working on new project is always much more fun… 😊

    I’m knitting the front of my peace sweater, and debating if I will rip out the first Knitterati block I did and try again.

    Do I ever stall for no reason? LOL Yes, all the time! With everything, I wish I could say it’s just the knitting. I would be … LYING. I think Blankets and large rectangle shawls are the ones that the indifference creeps in quickly. I say, follow the mojo. Knit what’s in the heart. Unless you know, there’s some kind of gift deadline. Then just don’t knit gifts LOL. What? I can’t handle the pressure. 😉

    Do I know stalling…ah-hem…Pink Flamingo on the Lawn. Still haven’t touched it. These stripes are great. I really like red/maroon with grey.

    I stall because it’s coming out much larger than I anticipated and perhaps that child will need to grow another year or so before it fits! I’m currently working on a baby sweater and Cutten fingering yarn the gauge comes out correct the pattern is gigantic. I had to reconfigure the stitches by 30 for a three-month-old baby and it was in the published book! Sometimes you have to do your homework, I tore it out three times before I came up with my own amount of stitches to start with. 🙄
