FO Friday 01.06.18

So I could have shared my sunhat last week because it was finished.

But…I kinda hate it.

I said I like floppy sunhats, but it turns out you can have too much flop. This just looks ridiculous.

Yeah I totally hate it. I’m getting rid of this one. On the plus side it’s a WIP off my list so I don’t need to feel guilty about having cast on another knitting project!

Has anyone had a good finish this week? Or even a mediocre one? Give me some good news!

WIP Wednesday 23.05.18

Current WIP count:7

The sunhat is neeeeearly finished, but the last few days I’ve been focusing on the blue top. You might even say obsessing over it.

Last time I had just started the front section, and today the front and back are done and sewn together, and I’ve made one of the sleeve caps!

Front
Back
It’s a sleeve, honest.

It seems the meterage on Ravelry was for the smaller sizes, as I finished the entire cake of yarn and had to go stash diving for more blues so I could complete the back. I’ve still got another sleeve and the pretty edging to do yet so it was way off. But yay for stash-busting, I suppose!

It’s much less portable now it’s sewn together so I shall go back to the sun hat at work and hopefully get that finished for Friday.

See, nearly there!

What’s everyone else working on? Having a good week? Let me know in the comments!

WIP Wednesday 16.05.18

Current WIP count: 7

I think it’s time to accept that I will never completely clear my WIP list. As soon as I cast off my Whimsy Cowl I started on a crochet top, then after a lunchtime walk in the sunshine I decided I absolutely must make a sun hat. And of course I’ll need another knitting project to give my crocheting muscles a break…

It’s okay though, as long as I can keep my WIPs in single figures it doesn’t feel too overwhelming.

The Tunisian jumper is still rolling along. Just 3 more rounds and it’ll be time to join the sleeves on!

I did manage a wee bit of shaping at the back, but not a great deal so I don’t know how much of a difference it will make to the fit. I can’t be bothered frogging back to add more in so it’ll just have to do!

Here’s the beginning of my top:

The yarn is just a generic cake in shades of blue that I wanted to get used up and out of my stash, and the pattern is one from Ravelry that I can’t find right now. Of course I can’t just leave it alone and I’ve already made some adjustments, mainly making it longer and using hdc instead of dc for some of the bust section. I really don’t require a roomy bust (sadly).

My sunhat is also blue, just because I bought a lot of blue cotton in various shades last year and I need to start making a dent in it. I’m dithering between making it all in one colour, or with a stripe or two of turquoise.

This one is a Country Girl hat, which is turning out lovely and floppy at the moment. I love big, floppy sunhats 🙂

So that’s what I’m working on this week, in between basking in the sunshine while I can. How’s your week going? Working on something fun? Let me know in the comments!
