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!!
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. :)
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!
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.
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. :)
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!!!
