War of WIPs Call to Arms #4
Want to join the war?? Check out the 2011 War of WIPs page.
In addition to finishing WIPs, there will be optional side quests to organize your knitting life! Check out the War of WIPs page for more information!
Ugh! I'm losing the battle this week. I haven't worked on any old WIPs. Here's why:
1. I wanted to knit up matching Butin earrings for my Butin Collar for this weekend.
2. I am knitting the West Mystery Shawl.
3. I am designing a beaded lace shawl. This should be done in September and then I'll be asking for test knitters. I do not recommend this is you have not knit lace and ask that if you want to do it you are familiar with lace knitting ... a test knitter is supposed to find any mistakes in the pattern, so it requires some experiece :o)
Next Battles on the Horizon:
Celeano Shawl 9/30/11*
Niantic Rose Shawl 9/30/11*
February Lady Sweater
Reversible Cable Scarf
Stenciling storage boxes
Hummingbird Cross Stitch
* I've added my beaded shawls to this list since they have a deadline, if I am teaching a class on beading at the October Knitters' Guild meeting, it would be nice to have some samples to show!
***Optional Side Quest August 14-28***
Organize your Knitting Needle Stash
Do you really know what sizes and how many of each you have in your stash? Do you give up trying to find the size you are looking for and just buy another set? Take this time and collect up all your needles and catalog them!
If you are a member of Ravelry you can do it there. You can jot it down in the notebook. You can make up a spreadsheet in Excel, whatever suits your fancy and is something that you will finish doing!!
Complete this for the post on 9/1/11 and you might just win a prize!!
