when a problem comes along, you must w.i.p. it!

Published by at 9:54 am under knitting

Been a little crazy with school back in full swing, but I’m adjusting to having a 4th and 6th grader pretty good – considering I’m in denial about having a 6th grader!

This is a picture of my current W.I.P. (work in progress). After finishing a crochet project, that I’ll share at a later time, I decided I better work on a knitting project so I don’t forget anything! The only fancy skill I have with knitting is cables so I really don’t want to forget how to read cable instructions! I started this earlier this year and got so frustrated with it that I stuck it in a box deciding I needed a break from it. I only had three complete rows of cables done. Apparently I really needed that break because now I’m really enjoying the pattern.

This is easily the most complicated pattern I’ve attempted so far. Click to see Ravelry link.

I had to write out the entire cable panel directions in my notebook so I wouldn’t mess up and I have my trusty sticky note that follows my progress as I mark off each row. It has taken me a lot of work to get that far, but I’m getting faster at the pattern and as long as I’m not watching anything too engaging, or trying to hold a conversation, I do just fine! Hahaha! (A couple of people know what I’m talking about! I’ve gotten good at putting the stitches back on the needle so I can redo my mess ups!)

This scarf is a long overdue promised gift … I’m just hoping to have it finished before October! Wish me luck!
