WIP Wednesday (2)

Wednesday, May 9, 2012

Thanks to Tami's Amis for hosting WIP Wednesdays
Welcome back to WIP Wednesday where we show you what's currently on our needles.

Susi: I finished my Color Affection last weekend and desperately wanted to started a lace shawl and was again caught in I-can't-decide-what-to-knit-next-hell. *sigh* I spent hours looking for a new knit and at some points had a bazillion tabs in my browser open and couldn't decide. So what did I start? A shawl I already knit in the past.

I started a new Ziggity by Kirstin Kapur because the first one I made was a gift for my mom. I loved that one so much that I actually considered keeping it for myself. But I was a good daughter and made her happy with the pretty. So I cast on again. This time I was a bit daring and knit with Malabrigo Lace in Marron Oscuro and Sapphire Green. I hope it won't come out too small as the pattern is made for fingering weight. We will see. And if it's still tiny after all the lace panels I can always add an extra lace panel. Or so I hope.

Also my bf started knitting a week or two ago and he already finished his first project. After that he started a Chevry by Stephen West because he loved  Caro's so much. I'm unbelievable proud of him and well his progress is scary fast. A really clever knitter if you remember that he touched knitting needles for the time just 2 weeks ago. LOL God, I love that guy.

Caro:  First I'd like to say I'm super proud of Susi's bf and I love his project already. Go bf!! *cheers*!  So last week I only had a few stripes on my Catkin shawl but I've been working on it a LOT and I'm just a few rows from the end. I was really scared of running out of pink yarn and believe me it was a close call. I only had a few yards left.

I'm super happy of the result. I was scared of the charts and it's lucky I had Susi to explain how they worked LOL Hopefully I'll have finished pics for Friday's post.

Here's what's on our needles this week.

Wow a male knitter! Good for you! What a great boyfriend you picked Susi! And I love that last picture.

Stella Ex Libris said...

OMG Susi, your bf is one of a king, a male knitting talent, congrats to him and you for zhaving such a wonderful bf with whom you can share all your hobbies :-D

I wanted to let you know, that being the curious one I am I tried clicking all the links in the post but as I'm not a member of Ravelry I couldn't access any of the photos :-( *sad Stella*

And congrats Caro that pink shawl looks beautiful! (and the photo looks really professional as well ;-p lol)

ps. lol typo in my first comment I meant "one of a kind", but seems my keyboard had other ideas lol :-D

How I love knitted shawls; both of yours are coming along so beautifully! I would teach my DH to knit but then we'd probably fight over yarn, so it's better this way :-)

SusiSunshine said...

@Aurian Yes indeed. HE was a good choice. *g*

@Stella here and here pics of the one i made for mom. =D

@del So far he'S only allowed to use I don't want. LMAO I'm scared of him wanting the good stuff. *wink*

You girls are brilliant, almost enough to persuade me to put down my hook and have another go with the needles. Almost...

i can't believe susi's bf is knitting a stephen west shawl 2 weeks in. that's insane and awesome. lovely shawls, ladies. you make me want to start one now, but i have to make a baby blanket next week. perhaps after that.

and loving that color combo, caro!

@Aurian I'm seriously amazed that he decided to learn to knit. I think it's awesomesauce!

@Stella Damn I didn't know you couldn't look without having an account :/ Thanks hon, it's now drying . I wish it could be dry already so I could wear it.

@Del I did tell her it was a risk and he would soon be stealing her yarn! ;)

@HillyT I wish I had more crocheting skills. As of today I can only make very basic stuff in crochet. It doesn't help that I am left-handed. Most tutorials show right hand.

@fishgirl182 It IS insane! He's incredible. I do not have the patience to knit blankets, you're very brave.
thanks! Right now I'm super frustrated because I cannot decide on which colors to knit my knew shawl. It's driving me bonkers.

Liz said...

I love the brown and green together! I hope adding another lace panel works out for you :) Your bf's Chery is looking great. Just two weeks knitting? Wow he makes good progress! I love Catkin and can't wait to see it finished, it's gorgeous and I'm glad you had enough pink :)

SusiSunshine said...

@HillyT LOL I really have to try more crochet projects. I'm so thinking about trying one of those hairpin lace blankets. *g*

@fishgirl182 Yes, I can't believe he sticks with it either. Will cheer for your babablanket.

@Liz Thank you hon! We had a group discussion about which color to use for the lace in the Ziggity. And well bf and Caro voted for green so I started it that way. And I agree the Catkin is awesome. I want one too now.

Truly Myrtle said...

Yay for boyfriend knitting!
I know that feeling of darting from pattern to pattern and yarn to yarn.... oh too well. Funny how we end up doing something familiar! It will be lovely - enjoy :)
