I haven't really been blogging lately because I haven't had much time to knit this term. I sort of always feel like blogging is only worth doing when I have an FO to show because how boring is it to look at pictures of unfinished projects? But then I realized that I love seeing pictures of other people's unfinished projects and then I look forward to seeing the progress they make and so on and since it may be a while before I have another FO to show, I figured I might as well do a jumbled post full of things I am currently working on.
Over the weekend I took all the scraps I had of Noro Kureyon lying around from the Lizard Ridge squares I'm making and I spit joined them all together to make a truly random ball of yarn, and then I knit one more Lizard Ridge square.
Here it is, in all it's unpredictable glory:
Don't worry, I won't be offended if you think it's ugly.
I then decided that I would knit a Turn a Square hat to use up the remaining yarn, which wasn't enough to make another square. I have a ton of Cascade Eco. Wool sitting around from plans to make a matching hat/scarf/mitten set that never happened and thought the two would pair well together. I don't have enough Kureyon to do the 2x2 stripes, so I'm doing a 2x1 stripe. I'm also not bothering with seamless joins because I just put the seam in the back and, well, it's just a hat.
I'm also still chugging along on the lace shawl. I've now completed 29 of the 40 body rounds and then I can do the border. Yes, I know, slow progress, but at least it's headed in the right direction.
I also started this Montego Bay Scarf (rav link) a while back as a project that I can work on if I have a spare minute before going to class or going to bed, whatever the case may be. I'm using SWTC Bamboo that my sister gave to me a while ago. You may recall this yarn from it's failed incarnation as a Clapotis, but I think this time it may actually make it to the finish line.
The yarn itself has a really interesting construction. From what I can tell from both looking and pulling it apart, it seems like this yarn is one long, small i-cord. It's super soft, really drapey, and it actually feels cold to the touch! I don't know if I'm going to keep this scarf or give it away, but I can guarantee it'll be loved by someone.
...and that's what's going on in my world. How about you?
