Well, maybe not for everyone, but I have been spreading the hand-knit love... and now that all those stealth projects have been gifted, I can share them.
Last blog post (four and a half months ago!), I complained that I had too many WIPs (14) and vowed to finish a whole bunch of them before starting another, aiming to have no more than six WIPs at a time. Let's see how that went, shall we?
Mid-May, I had two pair of socks on the needles. I finished one pair:
I also had two pair of mitts in progress. I finished these:
unspun mawata and are going to be in hibernation for a while as my child likes to eat yarn and I don't need "help" drafting the silk!
I was also working on two pair of baby booties, both of which I finished and gifted:
These went to Aurora. Her daddy plays hockey, so she needed ice skate baby booties!
These went to Mia.
I also started and finished two more pair, both for the newest niece on my husband's side of the family, just born two days ago:
I currently have no baby booties in progress!
I also had a baby sweater in the works. This went to another niece on my husband's side, Julie:
And I knit another baby sweater in 12-18 month size for Jo.
And I knit her a dress for the Ravellenic Games:
I also knit two "Monster Chunks" as gifts:
I am still working on the sweater, vest, shawl, doll, and little red riding hood cape. I frogged the cowl and the baby blanket. I started two more stealth projects.
Of the 14 I had in progress, I finished five and frogged two, leaving seven still in progress. Seven is almost six! But then I started nine more and finished only six of them. I currently have ten projects on the needles. So much for not starting anything else until I finished ten of the projects that were then in progress! Oh, well...
