First up, this is my Honey Cowl with Scratchy Allergic Yarn from Hell.
I unraveled it. The yarn wasn't working with the pattern, and the yarn really wasn't working with my hands. So that's the end of that.
(Dusts off itchy, splotchy hands.)
Next up, the Mitered Eyelet Blanket from Baby Blankets Made with the Knook.
I unraveled that one, too. I just didn't like the yarn with the pattern. I do want to try the pattern, though. I think I will soon, and probably with some yarn that is not cotton. I'm sure the yarn will find a nice project some day, but I think this pattern needs some yarn that's just a little bit fuller. And maybe more colorful. We are talking about a baby blanket, after all.
Looking through some of these projects really motivated me to think about whether I wanted to work on things or not.
It looks I did not want to do too very much with this dishcloth. I haven't unraveled it, though. I think I'll just add another few rounds every time I have some spare cotton yarn ready to go. It may look like a crazy person dishcloth, but it will be living in my kitchen. So......
Remember when I thought it would be cool to turn a headwrap into a cowl? It was a fun idea at the time.
Then I guess I changed my mind. I haven't touched it in two full weeks, and I don't think I will any time soon. Consider it frogged.
But! I still plan to work on the Cable Headwrap--you know, an actual headwrap--from Slouchy Beanies and Headwraps (Knit).
I mean, I haven't worked on it in the past 2 weeks.....but I feel motivated to get back at it now that I have this picture shaming me. My friend's birthday is coming up (and a lot sooner than her wedding!), so I need to hop to it.
And then there was this guy.
Little Baby Sweater from Purl Bee, and it's just precious. It's also going pretty well. It's not finished yet, but I'm probably about 75% of the way through it.
And then I'll start on Sweater #2. Sigh.
I'm making good progress, but this is all I want to show you.
A newer WIP is the Rib and Welt dishcloth from Easy Textured Knits. I'm using standard cotton yarn and knitting needles that are a size smaller than what the pattern calls for to account for gauge.
I like it a lot, and it's going well.
So 3 projects are gone, 2 are just the same, 1 is actually progressing, and 1 itty bitty baby WIP was born last weekend. I'm a little freer to work on my projects, and some of those projects are a little farther along than they were the last time I posted. If I keep posting these updates, I know I'll probably be a lot more motivated to finish up my WIPs in a much more timely manner.
What motivates you to finish up your WIPs?
