As for the Ghosts of Spring Cleaning Past, only the Squirrel Mittens will go back into the WIP basket. The Victoria Shawl will likely be ripped out (only a few inches in) and re-evaluate. The yarn will likely go back into stash.
2 down. 5 to go.
So what keeps some projects off the Spring Cleaning Effort? If they’ve been on the needles/in process less than 6 months, they are completely within the realm of WIP!
Deb Menz Blanket. I haven’t posted an update since 2009! I have worked on it but haven’t felt any love in a long time.
While thinking about 2013 Spring Cleaning, I thought that I might rip it and do something different with it. But once I took it out for its photo shoot, I realize that I quite like how it is turning out. The reason I haven’t felt any love was that it is now large enough that it’s not easy to drag around.
Keep on knitting! I will move my Mitered Non-Cross blanket back to on-the-go knitting since it is so portable. I’ll put this by my chair for TV knitting — after I finish my Hexagons, that is.
The current size is 26″ x 30″. It’s still a long way from a usable size.
All the ones that I intended to send out for processing have been sent and returned. I still have several that I had set aside for hand processing. Majority of these are not yet scoured. I need to use the warm weather to sort and scour them. I don’t have to process them, but I need to get them washed and sorted.
I just realized that I never published any photos of the pre-finished shawl on the blog!
Sorry about the horrid picture. I finished the last of the knitting on the plane to and at SOAR. I ran back to the room between evening events to block the shawl the night before I had to turn it in. So not only was this photo taken on my phone, it was in a dimly lit hotel room.
Good thing I had a large room to myself, even if it was covered in mold and mildew. (It was a fun asthma filled week.)
A big thank you to Jen for bringing her blocking wires for me. I didn’t want to fly with mine.
