WIP Wed: Wedding, The Plan and Broken Bones!

FOfridayThe Wedding! I wish my dear cousin is as happy in her marriage as my husband and I have been over the years! Congratulations to the Happy couple!

Congratulations Debbie and Ryan

Congratulations Debbie and Ryan

Well the plan continues.

I started out with 14 wips, have finished 4, 10 more to go.

As round 2 comes to an end, I have to observe that it has been enlightening. I get up each morning and look at the list and see what the day will bring. This has imposed some discipline on my knitting. I have decided to limit my wip list to no more than 7, this is up for some adjustment… 

  1. Carry along project
  2. socks
  3. shawl
  4. larger project
  5. sweater
  6. a gift
  7. something for the Bazaar.


Pine Forest Baby Blanket 

Not much progress

With everything that was going on only 2 rows on this one

Saturday was the Wedding day!

Another great photo, note that their dog is in the frame on the table.

So I have an excuse. This one got no customer attention. I planned to do some in the car on the way to the wedding, and then forgot it at home!

Sea of Dreams Blanket

I'm including this picture because I feel a little guilty for ignoring it.

Back to the routine…


SPROUT – Growing Roots sweater

Just about finished sleeve one and began sleeve two. Plan to get the body and button bands on before I finalize the sleeve lengths. Gives me a chance to try it on.

I consider this major progress!

Thought things would calm down for a while…

Good news my DS finally found a job! Hurray!

Ok, DS got to Toronto on bus and then train, got orientated at the new job, and came home on the train… then it went all pear-shaped! Running for bus, he tripped and broke his right clavicle, proceeded home on bus. Major pain, checked him over and the right side felt mushy. His mother frog marched him to emerg. He is now sporting a stylish blue harness for a month. He has training for the next 3 days! Three more trips!

See, no over reactions here, as his a mother I have reasons for worry!

My furry children are fine!

    I probably need to come clean about all my UFO’s… It seems like for you, having a list means that they get done quicker!

    What makes them disappear is cycling through the list one at a time each day. It’s amazing how forced work on old wips makes them disappear!
