Unraveled Wednesday

I want very much to cast on a new sweater and cut out fabric for a new dress. But one of the Ravelry forums that I frequent is hosting a frog or finish along and it has me digging through my fabric and yarn wips.

This week I finished quilting the animal cracker quilt. The binding is machine stitched but still needs to be turned and hand stitched. And I added one more row to the Summer Triangle quilt top I started at the retreat. I am planning to get that one finished in the next month too. I did toss (yes, into the trash) a uniform tunic. The fabric was too flimsy and very hard to sew and in the end, I would not have worn it. Note to self: cheap fabric is not a good idea.

In my knitting basket I have two finish projects. My green Annabel sweater needs another sleeve so I wound the yarn yesterday. And then there is this Hansel Hap. I looked at my Ravelry notes and see that I started this in 2015. Not that long ago. I did the contrast rows last summer and started the outer border and set it aside again. These are not really my colors but I think it will make a nice prayer shawl so I picked it up and knit 4 repeats of the lace last night. That brings me to the halfway point.

Book Bingo update: I finished a few more books over the last week. I have 12 boxes filled but there are a few squares that are going to be tougher. Speculative fiction is always a puzzle for me.

So no unraveling this week which is good too. Be sure to visit Kat’s Unraveled Wednesday link up.

  1. Your Hansel Hap looks great; I love the colors! Congratulations on your planning-to-finish and finishing. Those are big deals!

  2. It feels so good to wrap up those lingering projects. (And sometimes . . . to toss the projects that aren’t quite working!) Your Hansel Hap is lovely — and will be such a welcome prayer shawl. 🙂

  3. The Hansel Hap is such a classic pattern. Yours is beautiful. Frog or finish sounds like a good idea. I have had a scrap blanket in the closet (worsted weight) for two year. I am pretty sure it needs to be frogged.
