Wednesday

WIP Wednesdays

This week I have a couple of new WIPs, or should I say WIPs that have moved forward :)

I managed to finish two of last week's projects and will be sharing those with you on Friday.

This week I have been working on my Juliana, which is quite an easy project until now. The pattern is easy enough, but I worry a little about when I get to the point where I have to drop stitches :O

Drops Baby Merino

At that point I will have knitted 70cm of work which is quite a bit for it to go wrong!

Any tips? 
Has any of you knitted the Juliana yet?

Other than that I am wanting to finish off the wristlets I started earlier on in the year so I can move on to some new ones. I am using up rests of sock yarn for these.

These are my travel buddy WIP. 

I have them in my bag so that when I am on the road and have idle fingers I have something I can do. I always have a project with me on the go, are you also in the habit of doing this?

Are you also such a fan of wristlets/fingerless gloves?

I can't get enough of them. I think there is nothing better for the "in-between" seasons, like now, where it is not that cold that I need a jacket, but not warm enough to just go out with a jersey. It is amazing what a difference a little warmth on your wrists can make!

Reading: Still busy with "The Boy who went to War" and am enjoying the story so far.

How has your week been thus far?

I will be sharing with all of my Wednesday friends.
Have a great rest of your week.

  2. I love wristlets. It's almost the season for them here. If I dropped two stitches I typically try to pick them back up with a crochet hook or depending on the pattern, just add them back if it doesn't look wonky.

    1. Hi Donna,
      Yes, it is almost the season for them here too.
      I don't think I will be able to (or will have the patience to) pick up 70cm of stitches if it goes wrong, but thanks for the advice :)
      Thanks for visiting, have a good weekend.

  3. I mostly knit socks when on the way. Small project I can pick up any time. :-) Nice shawl. I'm sure you will manage it. Have a nice evening. Regula

    1. Hi Regula,
      Yes, socks will be the next project I pack in my bag as soon as I have used up some of my stashed bits and bobs :)
      Thanks for the visit.

  4. I do like fingerless gloves - and they've been one of the most popular knitted gifts I've made. I've had family members actually requesting them!

    1. Hi mamasmercantile,
      Me too :)
      I think they always look awesome with a autumny wardrobe. I think I have more wristlets in my bag to wear than to knit, LOL!
      Thanks for visiting.

  6. I love the color of the shawl. I have never knit one so I can't give any tips. I am really loving making wristlets also. I keep looking for new patterns.

    1. Hi CathieJ,
      I am the same, but then I guess so are most knitters - always on the lookout for the next pattern to queue :D
