Gladly on to my WIP. (Click any photograph for its larger version if you're so inclined.)
If you weren't here for Monday's post these next two pictures won't mean much to you. But I dismantled the hat and the shawl I'd made from my home dyed (Kool Aid) yarn. I am pleased to say I salvaged every last bit of yarn from the shawl. (I made mistakes with the hat but that yarn wasn't nearly as important to me to salvage.) I have plans for the yarn pictured right. The yarn pictured left? Still don't know.
I started work on a pattern from a magazine last week just after I posted that WIP Wednesday blog entry. Resolved to not adjust it once it published, I figured I'd introduce the project this week instead.
I created a Ravelry page for this project here (a rare thing for me) and will be updating it accordingly.
Anyway, that mesh you see to the left is the back panel for a "cover-up" using left-over stash from a shawl I made my mother last year for her birthday. It's currently just about eleven inches long.
Which brings me to my question this week: how do you store your works in progress while you're not working on them? I got sick of leaving my project on the top of the couch and pulled out an old basket I had. I almost actually look like a knitter! ;) It's too bad between my son and kitty that I can't leave this basket in the corner of the living room and turn it into decoration.
I'll leave you with a little bit of beautiful, my Phalaenopsis babies in bloom:
