I'm knitting a baby blanket for any future grand children we may have and I'm also knitting a poncho for my 3 yr. old gd for use in the Fall. :happydance: My next project will be a pretty felted tote bag that I saw in a knitting magazine. I was able to order all the yarns online and got them last week.

I want to finish one of the two projects before I begin another. I am able to "keep ahead" that way. :XX: :XX:

What are YOU currently working on? :D

I have the body of a charity sweater done. I just need to pick up the stitches for the arms now. I have also been working on squares for the preemie blankets for KnitPixie's Preemie Project (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12331). I haven't done anything for myself for awhile, but I'm enjoying the knitting nonetheless. ;)

Well I've got tons of WIPs as usual. The project that I have on my lap right now is a pair of socks for hubby in Mission Falls 1824 Wool. I've also got the second sleeve of Lissa's sweater waiting for me to finish the socks.

I'm knitting this (http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=95&d_id=33&lang=en) in Pink yarn for me at the moment. I've completed the body and sleeves and "only" need to pic up the 390+ stitches :shock:
Problem is I only own circular needles in 5mm that are 60cm long! My LYS does not have longer ones(would need 100cm or more anyway) and would have to order them. So I'm thinking about using two of the 60cm together(but I'm afraid of losing stitches!).

I'm also knitting my mum's motherday present as she got a gift coupon from me to knit/sew her something. It's a top in black with red,green, yellow stripes at the neck, bottom and arms. It's taking forever and it's a quite boring knit(only stockinette and in the round).

My third project is a secret, sorry can't tell you in case she reads this :hiding:

I've got a bunch of other projects on the needles, but they are on hold.

:D I'm lovin' reading what everyone is working on...this is fun! I just finished the Leaves of Whimsy socks (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2006%20a%20new%20year%20in%20KNITTING/DSCN1474.jpg) and cast on for Rose (http://artisokka.com/patterns/rose.html) (Soleil (http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATTsoleil.html) with sleeves) for my sister using Elann's Sonata. Oh yeah...I have 2 wip's (can u believe :shock: ?!), the other is the Leaf Lace scarf (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2006%20a%20new%20year%20in%20KNITTING/DSCN1314.jpg) (although it's much further along!) using my very favorite yarn, SWTC's Bamboo. After these are complete I think that I may do Tempting (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTtempting.html) or T2 (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTtemptingII.html) for my youngest daughter....or, one of my other gazillion projects!! If I finish Rose in time I may just do Lady Eleanor for the Knitting World Cup (http://yarn-monkey.blogspot.com/2006/05/knitting-world-cup-announced.html)...it's a thought ;)

EDIT....well, I just entered the Knitting World Cup...doing Lady Eleanor...so, that's what's next ;)

Knitty's Reid for my niece, and an Irish Hiking scarf that I carry around with me. I'm determined to get Reid done before I start anything else. It's my first lace project, so it will be on the needles for a while, I suspect! Oh, and I'll need to learn to crochet for the edging. Yeah, it'll be a while.

After that, I have yarn for the bag Olive from "25 Bags to Knit."

Been working on odds and ends things, like white preemie booties, other preemie items, two scarves, a hat for myself(with really pretty yarn), a pair of wristwarmers, ect.

I think that's a bit much though :??

My never ending Harry Potter scarf (what can I say? I get bored with it!), a scarf for my sil's b-day (not until October, but I want to make sure I get it done in time-which I'm sure I will), I'll probably start on the hat to match it soon. I also want to start on some Christmas projects for the two little girls that I babysit, but I'm having a difficult time deciding what scarf patterns I want to use. I like the diagonal scarf by Debbie Bliss in the book Scarf Style, but not in the colors that are pictured. Her yarn is a bit price-y for me too, so I will have to substitute it. Plus, deciding what colors to use is a big decision too!

Almost finished with the green sweater on the cover of Rowan's Vintage Knits book (click WWW below). Also have Paton's Street Smarts Urban Aran on the needles. Then I started a no-brainer to take with me out of yellow leftover Cotton Tots. I was trying to make a felted sheep without Fiber Trends' pattern - tryin to alter another pattern. Saga is in my blog too. Didn't work. Will have to break down and fork out the $10. But that's about my limit of WIPs - I really like one thing at a time.

Oh.... the multiple project problem....actually I just posted a finished project - an Irish Hiking scarf. I'm working on a pair of cabled gloves in a similar color for the same friend, and STILL trying to finish a cabled hooded zip up from debbie bliss that I started a year ago. I'm just about to start some felted clogs for my mom, but have to order needles first. I also need to start a beanie for my other friend. I'm going to try to invent a pattern for small intarsia stars around the bottom. She's kinda punky so I thought I'd do black with red stars at the bottom.

Good luck with everyone's projects! Oh- how do you get a word, like "here" to take you to a website?

I'm still pluggin away one block at a time on my Retro Throw. I was going to give it to the chemo doctor's office for their patients, but I just found out my uncle has stage 3 lung cancer, so it's now going to him. It's not taking as much yarn as I thought it would (I sub'd LB Homespun for KP Crayon), so I'll probably have enough to do another, but probably in a different pattern.

I signed up for the Amazing Lace KAL and the Grannie Smith Cardi KAL - hee, hee, one project for 2 KALs.

I'm also trying to design a purse for grandma, find a pattern for mom and let's not talk about the Jaywalkers, shall we?

I just finished a Booga bag, it's blocking right now. I'm finishing up a pair of shorties for my daughter, knitting the Icord right now. Next on the list is my first pair of socks :shock: (wish me luck) and my other daughter wants a mini Booga bag just like mine :lol: , so I guess I better get on that. Also on the needles, but haven't picked up in awhile is a Harry Potter scarf, I've already knit one in Gryffindor colors and swore I'd never knit another, but now I'm doing it in Ravenclaw, but they take forever to knit and are very tedious :doh: .

I'm a one @ at time lady, also! At the moment, I'm knitting a sleeveless top (and it's taking me forever!...with my sewing, reading, cooking, cleaning, etc. etc. etc. etc.) I expect to finish in the next few weeks, and I'll post a picture. :XX:

I just finished a sock, and need to get working on it's mate. I started it, but only have an itty bit done. I only work on one thing at a time, too. I do have a sweater stuck away somewhere that I had started, but I haven't worked on it since I learned how to knit socks!! :D

i have been obsessed with Tabi socks since seeing this (http://spunmag.com/article/050605socks) pattern so that is what i am working on right now....and in the process i have cast on, turned the heel, and frogged my very first sock....*sigh*....but we are back to work on the heel now, let's see if i can keep from messin' it up this time!

it is being done in a sunset looking combo of colors from Koigu.

I wish I had MORE going on, but I can only concentrate on one task at the time myself, so I'm working on the Streaker Shrug in the Spring Interweave Knits--but I'm doing it in a soft acrylic first to see if I can actually do it--then I'll drop more green on the yarn to do the "real" one!! :shock:

the other is the Leaf Lace scarf (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2006%20a%20new%20year%20in%20KNITTING/DSCN1314.jpg) (although it's much further along!) using my very favorite yarn, SWTC's Bamboo.

Rebecca...where did you get this pattern--I love it!


I'm feeling the sock pressures...I was making a pair for mother's day that didn't get done b/c I messed up the heel and had to frog...I was so frustrated that I put it down for a while. I've done the flap and am ready to start picking up stitches but I needed a breather from it for a bit. My grandmother's shawl (in my signature....the one that was supposed to be finished by the first week of April...) is still on the needles but I've about decided to frog it and pick another pattern. Working on it is pure torture!! The project I'm actually working on is an afghan from a book I purchased recently that has a diamond pattern to it w/ a seed stitch border...it's reversable...it's for my dad for Christmas...I just thought I'd get started and work on it slowly. It's not hard--you just have to remember where you are in the pattern when you put it down. Since I found out that I'm expecting I've picked out a sweater and two baby blankets that I want to tackle too! I feel a little overwhelmed with knitting right now...like there is so much I want to do that I don't know where to start, kwim?

I'm a one @ at time lady, also!

I try so hard to be. But sock yarn keeps flinging itself at me :rollseyes:

Currently

- at the Front neckline on the YOTS tank knit along, Now too large to carry easily so I had to cast on

- my first cuff down socks (Cool Socks, Warm Feet basic pattern) while ignoring

- a chunky weight alpaca shawl based on Clapotis that I'm just not thrilled with

- a striped hat just to play with multi color knitting on something small

- an overdue crocheted afghan

and I almost always have a dishcloth I'm puttering with.

I just finished my monogrammed bag, but I'm still working on my 'secret project' which is a bikini for the hot tub on our 1st anniversary, but it's about 80% done. (I had crocheted a bikini right after learning to crochet for our honeymoon, but I didn't have time to try it on before leaving....needless to say, it didn't fit! So I'm trying again!! Different pattern this time, see signature) I'm also working on the Homespun Hooded Sweater from Lion Brand for my mom. I have tons of sock yarn I want to start, a nantasket basket planned, and two more monogrammed bags (for mil and sil). And I can't wait to work on my new needlefelting kit, a fuzzy little sheep! Not to mention, all the things I see on here that I must knit!!

I wish I could be more of a monogamous knitter. I currently have 4 WIPs--4 tends to be my limit.

- Baby blanket, which I just started after finding out the sex (my cousin's baby)

- Sock for DH

- Prairie tunic (IK, Spring '06)

- Irish Hiking Scarf

I'm about 1/2 finished with a poncho for GD and about 2/3 done on a vest for her. Hope to start on learning socks when either of these projects is completed. I try not to have more than 2 projects going at the same time.

Cristy, I got the pattern out of Vogue Knitting spring 2005, but I changed the edges, using Annie Modesitt's double knitting edging (as seen in Alison's scarf (pdf) (http://www.modeknit.com/blog/alisons_scarf.pdf)) so that the scarf doesn't roll :D I love this technique on scarves...works like a charm ;)

*neck-down hooded tunic made with Cascade Sierra Quatro.
*Chevron scarf made with KPPPM.
*Chevron scarf made with Jojoland Melody, and the color transitions are horrible, so I'm losing interest.
*double seed scarf out of SWTC Bamboo (started this Sunday night and I'm bored with it already).

:shock: Oh dear........I'm going to be dreaming about these, ya know?

Needle-wise, I'm still working on the "teach myself" part of knitting. I just started out as if I were to make a scarf and each few rows I try to mix and match between knitting and purling to get the hang out of 'em.

Crochet-wise, I'm a blanket person. I'm a firm believer that unless you can "burrito" yourself in a blanket, it's not big enough, hehe.
At the moment I'm repeating two of my previous blanket projects to give away to a friend and to my Mom.
- http://www.inzomne.com/gallery/hooked/IMG_1031This one, but in multicolor yarn for a friend.
- http://www.inzomne.com/gallery/hooked/IMG_1029 And this one for my Mom. Only instead of multi-color patches, there's only one basic color that she absolutely loved.

also knitting basketweave type scarf (no particular pattern) with yarn found at diva knitting (http://www.divaknitting.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=18_19&products_id=48) similar to noro, but much softer. the colors are faboo

working on halter top. got frustrated with it bc for at least a round and a half, i knitted the ribbing without looking down )was caught up in some action flick) and it was one off grrr. have to "unknit" it and dont want to. using cashmerino in brown.

and branching out, the lace scarf pattern on knitty. decided to go ahead and try it with kid silk haze rather than the silk/wool stuff. its gonna be tricky. but im excited about it!

Kaye and Rebecca - I am a one project at a time gal as well. Otherwise I feel too much pressure to get them all finished. With one going, I can work on that one thing with all I have.

Well, our first "official" knitting project is going to be a lovely afghan. I went to Hobbily Lobbily :lol: today and picked out some yarn (I know, I already had yarn! :lol: ) for our afghan. I just love the yarn. It is in Surf & Turf colors - kind of Autumny like I like. :D If I don't use the Moss stitch, it will be another I learn this week. We have been learning several stitches and having a total blast! :cheering:

It's ok - pretty fast. I've been using the random stripe generator here, http://www.kissyourshadow.com/stripe_maker.php , for fun. It's fairly repetitive, but that's what I wanted - something for tv knitting.

I haven't joined the squares, but that should go ok. I'm not sure if I'll follow the pattern for the border - maybe.

I'm working on a baby layette right now - done with the hat (from LMKG) and the placket-neck sweater (also from LMKG), halfway done with the pants (Picky Pants from Little Turtle Knits) and the blanket (diagonal garter stitch), and not yet started on the booties (pattern TBD). The layette is all in baby blue and cream Cottontots, except for the blanket which is Rowan Baby Soft (a wool blend) in cream.

Am also waiting for yarn to arrive to cast on for Cozy. And am in the yarn-perusing stage for a shawl to make after Cozy.

I am so not monogamous. :blush:

I spent this past holiday weekend doing my first ever Lucy bag. I couldn't get the right size DPNs so I had to go 1mm larger. This put me 1mm bigger than the small size and 1/2mm smaller than the big size. It is sitting in the boot of the car while I'm here at work waiting to drive to my mum's place after work for dinner and felting!

I got the yarn from ebay very cheaply - I think it was around 3.00 for 10 50g balls (around $5 or $6 - probably not as much as that depending on today's exchange rate!). I used Wendy Tweed - a discontinued line.

I have some other stuff - Wendy Merino (4 ply) - the ball band says 100% wool but Yarndex says it is 100% acrylic! I've knitted a small swatch and will throw that in tonight to check if it felts or not. It doesn't itch when I hold it to my skin so maybe it isn't wool afterall - though I did once own a merino sweater that didn't itch!

After this I'm going to make some fingerless gloves / wristwarmers. My home is rather cold (even in summer) and my boiler is not working to take the chill off the air, so my hands get rather cold. I figure if I make some fingerless gloves or long writstwarmers I'll still be able to knit!

I'm working on a mate to a pair of socks for my husband, I've got a thumb to finish on a pair of mittens & I am working on the weekend getaway satchel....
The socks is giving me fits cause I keep messing up the ribbing (due to not paying attention) and I have to go back and re do :(
The mitten is on the back burner cause it's like 90000 (90+) degrees and who wants to think about mittens now :D
I have the back & sides done for the satchel but the front with the flowers is a little more advanced than I am right now.
OHHHHHHHHHHH and I've got the wild stripes baby blanket to finish. I'm trying to find someone to help me sew the piping and the backing on.

Me thinks I should pick something up and knit it :D

are you talking about the TLC yarn in turquoise and browns?

Yes! :D Isn't it gorgeous? Your scarf is very nice. :) I bought every skein they had - all ten. I asked if they had more. The lady who worked there, who happened to be named Robin as well :lol: , assured me that ten would be plenty to make a lap afghan. Do you think so? I don't think the sales lady Robin was an avid knitter so I didn't know if she knew what she was talking about.

My favorite colors for anything are Autumn ones. Normally I would not have strayed from them, but I like how the light blue looked against my beloved browns. :mrgreen:

I love reading about the projects you ladies are working on!

Right now I'm working on a sleeveless top in cotton yarn. It's starting to get hot around here so I wanted to avoid wool for now. I found the pattern in creative knitting magazine. I have the back done and just started the front last night. I'm not looking forward to the seaming part but I guess it's something I have to learn eventually.

I'm usually a one project at a time kind of girl, also.

Ack! I should have known better than to read this post. lol I've found about 6 new patterns that I have bookmarked.

I am working on the golf club covers and other stuff in my siggy, but yesterday I recycled half of one of dh's old sweaters and started knitting the Irish Hiking Scarf with it. I still have the other half of the sweater to frog, but I needed a break. Now I need to buy a winder because there is SO MUCH yarn there's no way I'm going to wind it all on my hand.

I was working on a shawl but had to frog it and I've since cast on to start over. It's a basketweave pattern and i looooove it. Using Merino-Alpaca and I think I'm in love, lol.

It's been too hot to work on poncho and vest...don't want anything large in my lap. So decided to learn to use dpn. Am working on tube socks using pattern from FrugalHaus.com. Poncho and vest are on the back burner until weather cools some or we finally turn on air conditioner.
