Wip for this Wednesday!

Holden Shawlette

Christmas Stocking for grandson

I am knitting like crazy on Holden.  He is #12 of 12 Shawls in 2012!   I think I can make it!  The idea is that you start and finish 12 shawls during the year.  It was 11 in 2011 and 10 in 2010.  Although I had joined the group, I didn't count my shawls until this year.  Part of my problem is I have several UFO's that were started before January 1st and couldn't count them for the year that I completed them.  Whew.  I do have another shawl on the needles, but that is now 2 years in the works.  So after Holden is finished I will go back and complete it.  It is a Pi shawl.  I was having trouble with the last section and wanted to restart from the last increase. So I have about 2 rounds to tink.  So isn't that a wonderful reason to set it aside for 2 years? 

I got the Christmas stocking done!  Now to get it into the mail.   We had a huge snowstorm yesterday and it will take me a bit to dig out  so that I can make a PO run.

#11 finished shawl in 2012

I finished my New Moon Shawl!   It is blocking today.  I really liked this yarn, so soft to work with.  So I have something for FO Fridays at Tami's blog this week. And also for Fiber Arts Friday.

I was able to get quite a bit done on the Christmas stocking for the new grandson.  Hopefully I will be able to finish it tonight with a Netflix movie.

12-12-12 Yarny Days are here again!

Too Cute!

Casting on Christmas Stocking

 Cast off last night, still needs blocked.
I had gone over to my friend's house this am and she had the cutest mitten bunting hanging over the fireplace!  I just loved it!  I might have to try that with some of my leftover yarns.

I finished my New Moon shawl last night.  It has an I cord bind off.  I thought that with the 200+ stitches it would take a long time, but it went rather quickly.  Hopefully I can get it blocked tomorrow.  It is my 11th shawl this year!  I think that I can make the 12 shawls in 2012!

Next up is the Christmas stocking for the new grandson.  I found the white yarn that I used for Mom and brother's stockings. I think I can get it knit up rather quickly, I seem to remember the others were quick knits.

I realized that I still haven't even looked at my Sunset for December.  I love this magazine!  Lots of good photographs and ideas.

Work in Progress

I cast on my 11th shawl for the year!  I am hoping to make the 12 in 2012 club!  They have to be started and finished during 2012.  My ravelry project page is here.  I still need to get Saroyan blocked.  That is on the schedule for today.

The other project that needs to finish up is a Christmas stocking for the new grandson.  I made Mama and big Brother one using this pattern, Daddy has a crocheted one I made for him when he was just a little guy.  I found the pattern but haven't found the white yarn for the trim.  I am pretty sure that I did not use it up on the other 2 stockings.

I am still plugging away at the same book as last week.  It is an ok book, but not one that I can't put down and read straight through.

This is my WIP Wednesday post.  Also check out Frontier Dreams and Yarn Along for some fun ideas.
