Moment of Truth

As promised last week, I took photos of everything labelled WIP on my Ravelry page (you can see that list to the right, there, and can clicky for pattern and yarn info =>) and I am going to show you all of them*, though nearly every single one is in a "what is that?" stage and not very photogenic.

Lunar Legwarmers:

Sybil (I'm very upset about Sunday's Downton, so I'm hiding this until further notice):

Scaled Armor:

Spring in the Mediterranean (this has been a "WIP" for probably 2 years): 

Smokey Saroyan:

Egg Shell:

Flutterby Cami (it just needs straps! That's all! For about a year now!):

At the Caldron's Edge:

I don't really feel any better. Most of these are actually hibernating, but I know if I change them to "Hibernating" on Ravelry, I'll never go back and look at them and think, "Oh yeah! I should finish that!" You can see I already made the fatal mistake of taking the needle tips off the cord in Spring in the Mediterranean, which I promised myself I'd never do. I do pull it out to work on it from time to time, so having to put needles back on it will be a deterrent. You can see that I have the same problem with At the Caldron's Edge. Fortunately, that pattern is memorized, the project is portable, and I bought new dpns for it, so it will see progress again very soon.

Well, I should bury myself in these things until they are done (or resemble the garment they intend to be)....For more WIP Wednesday posts, go to Tami's Amis!

*You'll notice Tiger Stripe Basic Sock is missing. It is a shop sample and I won't see it until tomorrow.


  1. You do have a lot of WIPs but most of them are very far along! Maybe just tackle one at a time? Sometimes it takes a little bit of a push but once you get going it is much easier. It can also take a lot of stress off if you frog one if it has been haunting you for a while. I totally get why your would be haunted by the Downton sweater, I cry almost as rarely as Thomas.

    1. I think I will try to finish a bunch in February. I'm actually glad that this is all there is, really! It could be worse. Thomas broke my heart a little bit. :(

  2. Ugh, this reminded me of the all my long forgotten WIPs. Should probably start digging those at. All of yours look great, and hopefully inspire you to finish :)

    1. Thank you! They'll all get finished. Some sooner than others.... :) I hope you dig yours out!

  3. Oh wow! I recognize a few projects there. You gotta do Scaled Armor (cool colors, btw) because it is one of the nicest FOs I have ever knit. I don't really sew, so it was scary, but I love it. Seriously, I just look at it sometimes, just to look at it. I'd like to see how your camisole works out, too. And of course, the Knitbot sweater. I know you'll pick it back up, eventually, maybe after another episode.

    1. You inspired my to go forward with my Corona Camisole because yours was so beautiful! I don't know if it's anything I'll wear much, so I haven't finished it, but when spring is eminent, I definitely will. I can't even tell you how excited I am about Scaled Armor! Yours was so perfect, I knew I needed one! I think my Sybil will watch Downton with me this Sunday. :)


Thank you for reading and commenting! I love to hear what's on your mind!
