Project Management

Here's my first attempt to sort out all those projects in-progress:

Seed Stitch Jacket - 99%
VK Winter 04/05 (the cover jacket)
Used the re-cycled SPOT 50% wool, 50% acrylic yarn originally used for the Open Lace Pullover (below) and eventually frogged. SPOT is a bit lighter, but with some calculations here and there, using this yarn for this jacket turned out pretty good (it fits too!)...I just need to find 5 buttons!

Perplum Pullover - 95%
VK Winter 02 - Perplum Pullover James Coviello
Originally knit in SPOT 50% wool, 50% acrylic yarn. However, the yarn was too heavy and the Pullover pieces turned into these horrendous, humungous wooley things. I guess it's punishment for not checking the gauge.
Not to be discouraged, I started again, this time with a more suitable yarn. All the pieces were knitted up in end 2004. But the complicated sewing of lacy edgings has banished this project into the fear pile.


Flower Basket Shawl - 50%
IK Fall 04
Yes, a late start on this one. Just started while everyone else seems to be finished! Have used a silver-ish mohair yarn, which although is a but fuzzy, actually complements the lace rather well.

Sampler Afghan - 5%
Inspired by this sampler afghan. Isn't it just pretty? I've decided to assemble 8X8 inch-sized blocks of various patterns. To date: 3 blocks done.

Summer Tube Top - 0%
Bought 3 balls of Katia Spray Ribbon on sale and inspired by a Tahki Stacy Charles tube top. Need more calculations and swatching.

Here's a bear I knit for my friend in Toronto. He's a bit skinny!

Hi there!
Another HK knitter! Who'd have guessed there were so many of us.
Well, someone has got to be knitting up all that yarn from the shops. I hope you figure out how to put up those photos soon so we can see what you've been up to.
