Sweater WIP's, New Year's Resolution Post... Again!

Today's WIP sharing session is brought to you by SWEATERS!  I have several in different stages that got stashed at weird points and I even forgot that I had a few of these!!


WIP #40

This sweater actually started its life meant to be the Uptempo Vest I found on Ravelry.  After I worked the two panels, however, I found the vest to be a little long for my liking and a little lacking in the flair department.  I pinned it up to my mannequin and went to work.  I added this small pineapple in the back:


As well as pineapple sleeves in gray and a nice gray trim.  Now I'm just waiting until my next trip to the craft store to find some buttons for the front, then all I have left is to join the arms to the piece and sew in all the ends.  It could probably use a good wash and block as well. :)


WIP #41

This is a simple sweater dress that I started based off of the Spiralis pattern on Ravelry.  I added a cable coming out of the pocket and am probably about 40% done with this one, but I can't find the notebook with my project details right now!  Not to mention that whatever yarn is attached to the piece is the last I have of that color until I can get to the craft store.  bummer!



WIP #42

This one is pretty much done, but needs to be cleaned up (the dryer was not nice to this one!) and the armpits need to be reseamed.  


WIP #43

Since this picture, this piece has undergone a lot of change!!  I'm working on a new pattern for a sweater dress for my youngest child.  She loves all things frilly so there's lots of ruffles involved but it's still not quite done.  When I took the picture, I just had these two front and back pieces for the top of the sweater. :)


WIP #44

This is my attempt at the Paris sweater.  I started it on knitting needles, but then got my knitting machine and went... wow.  I need to do this on the knitting machine instead!!  So I worked for a good 4 hours one night and cranked out this large piece, bound it off, and discovered that it needs more length.  I will have to reattach it to the knitting machine and add about 20 more rows before I can finish it off. 





The more I talk about these, the more I mentally note for myself in the future!  I've frogged a ton of projects and also finished a few now, and I'm so glad there's only going to be one more installment of WIP's before I can start sharing finished projects!!!

What are you working on?  Share below!!!
