Work in Progress Wednesday v.9

Clearly, work is getting in the way of my knitting time.  Every Tuesday night, I have a little panic attack about my lack of visible progress to report on Wednesday.  Not that I'm competitive or anything... ahem. 

Anywho, without further ado... welcome to the 9th installment of Work in Progress Wednesday, where crafty bloggers from around the world (seriously -- how cool is that!?) share their superior craftiness!  As promised, Mr. Right's Avast is now all in one piece...

Apologies for the flash pictures.  It's been dark and cloudy around here all day, and even with all the lights in the house on, this was the best I could do.  Ah well, at least it's starting to come together.  The first few rows after joining the sleeves are epic -- almost 400 stitches in a round.  They're also super fiddly, and I kept having to check to make sure the cable wasn't twisted or anything.  I'm in the thick of the raglan decreases now, where we go from almost 400 stitches at chest level to 88 around the collar.  I can't wait to get this done!

I've also made a teensy bit of progress on my cable/lace/vest/thingy (ravelry link), which is a smidge bigger than last week...

Turns out I can't successfully watch The X Files and knit the first repeat of a lace pattern, no matter how simple, at the same time.  I've had to tink each row of lace so far, and at the end of the current row, I'm one stitch short.  Sigh.  Unknitting 236 stitches of fuzzy yarn is not so fun, especially when it's every right side row.  Hoping once I get a full repeat under my belt it'll begin to make more sense and I'll have to concentrate a bit less.

Looking forward to seeing everyone's successes at FO Friday this week, I'll have to live vicariously through the rest of you for a couple of weeks!


  1. LOL, I panic come Monday evening! So funny.

    The sweater is coming together great!!! I can't wait to see it finished!

    I have to work something VERY simple while watching tv. That's why I love working on blankets/afghans!

  2. The sweater is really pretty, and that deep pink yarn is so nice, no one except you would ever notice any mistakes.
