Current WIP count: 7
While the mittens are sitting in the naughty corner, I’ve started working on another Christmas present using one of my Twirls. I figured I’d better get stash-busting in case Mum gets me another big box of yarn for Christmas.
This is a free pattern from Hobbii called the Sunrise Scarf, which is designed specifically for Twirls. But of course I’m not sticking to it entirely! First of all the pattern calls for 4.5mm needles, but I wanted it more light and airy so I went for 6mm.
I also got a bit bored at the thought of repeating the pattern forever more so after five repeats I added in a stripe of stockinette to break it up.
Now I just need to remember to add that stripe after every fifth repeat so it looks deliberate and I don’t have to tink or frog anything.
That’s all I’ve been working on yarn-wise (not counting the multiple fails with the second mitten), but I’ve also been plotting and planning. I really do want to knock a bit out of my stash in December, and it would be great to go into the new year with a fairly clear WIP list, so I’m busy working out several ways to make that happen. Watch this space.
So there’s my week, what’s everyone else working on? Any exciting Christmas makes underway? Let me know in the comments!
