Going through my sewing room and knitting stuff this week, I was shocked and appalled at how many projects I have lying around, unfinished.
I even started a project as a part of a KNITALONG, going with the idea that it would be finished ALONG with everyone else! Novel. Problem is, it was a Downton Abbey knitalong, and I would get so sucked into the show, that I couldn't knit and watch at the same time. So I fell behind. (I really need to learn how to do two at a time, like the way people do socks two at a time.... Well, anyway.)
This weekend's project for me will be to finish the first mitten I started, and to get at least 3/4 through the second one.
Here is the first:
How cute is that??? The yarn I'm using is Knitpicks Felici, which I think is a blend of merino wool and nylon...don't quote me on that...but it's really soft, the stitches are well defined, and I love the colors.
HERE is what I need to do to finish this first one: weave in the ends (duh!) and figure out a better bindoff for the bottom, where it's ribbed. It's supposed to be stretchy, but it's not! I bound off "in pattern," thinking that would do it, but there must be something I'm missing. Look at the next picture:
So knitters...help me out here...how do I do this?
So there's that to do, and then start the other one. That is what I will be doing every time I get a moment this weekend. I want to actually be able to wear these before summer gets here!
What about YOU? Fess up, I know you've got UFO's of your own.... Wanna do a weekend project with me? Tell me what you'll be working on this weekend! :)
