Work-in-Progress Wednesday 19


I'm going to keep this pretty short, as I've come down with the flu. :( I was on such a roll, had so much energy and then BOOM. I got sick on Monday afternoon. Definitely no fun. I hope you're all having a great week.

Here are this week's WIPs:


Almost done! When I'm feeling better, I need to just sew the lining together and then hand sew it in the purse. I also need to add the ribbon decoration to the front. I hope to get better pictures then, for FO Friday. :)



I made a boo boo where the stem of the glass and the main portion meet, but didn't realize until I was way far into it. I don't think the recipient will mind, so I just left it. Other than that, I'm really happy with this and really like the border for it. I also am loving the subtle colors in the cream yarn! Anyway, this is the pattern I'm using.



Despite having so much to do still for Christmas, I couldn't wait to start these. As I mentioned here, I decided to make the Waffle Fingerless Gloves. As you can see, I have finished one, and am about to start on the second. I'm afraid it will be a little small (I still have to seam it) but hope it will stretch. I used Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool that I dyed and LOVE the way the colors turned out. I'm stoked!

  3. Holy Moly, Tami! LOOK at that yarn you dyed -- it's gorgeous! I'm glad you went with the black bamboo handles for the bag -- they look perfect. Hope you're on the mend soon!

  5. Natalie, thank you! I'm very pleased with the colors and pooling.

    Liz, thank you! I'm hoping to finish the dishcloth today.

    Paula, thanks. I had no clue how it would turn out once knitted/crocheted up and I'm stoked with it. I don't have much of it (but I have no clue how much I have), so this was the perfect project for it. I'm happy with the bamboo handles, too. It seems perfect for this purse.

  7. I love that yarn, the colours are amazing. I have linked up to WIP Wednesday even though I couldn't take photos today, but you do have a written update, does that count?

  8. Ugh, sorry to hear that you're sick. :( I hope you'll feel better as quickly as possible!

    The purse came out great, and I love the colours on those waffle gloves, they're so rich and jewel-y. (The colours on the dishcloth are nice, too, the little flecks of colour are adorable, especially since one of them sort of makes a heart over to the left of the glass.)

  9. Look at you knitter critter :) Great projects, your dyed yarn is stunning. Feel better soon! I prescrible lots of tea, rest, and yarn.

  10. CraftyCripple, thank you! Of course that counts!

    Kathleen, thank you. I knew I had way too much energy on Monday morning. I should have realized I was getting sick and rested instead of running around like a monkey. You know, the colors are a little jewel-y! I didn't even think of that. They're actually even brighter/richer in person. I didn't even notice the heart, how awesome is that?!

    mutantsupermodel, thank you! I'm trying to rest and drink tea! For some reason, I have a hard time doing stuff when sick. I just lay and stare at the same spot for hours. LOL

  12. Your projects look great. I hope you feel better soon. I relate completely to not being able to wait to cast on for the new project. The color of the fingerless gloves is gorgeous!

  13. All your projects are looking great! The purse is so elegant in black, love the handles. The fingerless gloves look so cool. That yarn color is so fantastic! And don't worry, once blocked the pattern on the gloves will open right up. It just looks small unblocked. Hope you feel better soon!

  14. Beautiful work, Tammy, as always. Isn't dyeing your own yarn just too much fun? I love what you made. I hope your flu departs quickly so you can be rested and happy for the holidays.

  15. Tami....sorry to hear you came down with the flu :( I love the purse! It is going to be awesome! I also loved the colors you dyed the fishermans wool! The color scheme is very pleasing to the eye! Nice job :)

    I finally finished (mostly finished) my Luigi if you want to go to see him on my blog:

  16. I LOVE the colors on your fingerless gloves! Gorgeous. The dishcloth is adorable - I don't really need to cast on for anything new right now, but my mom would love that pattern! Hmm, maybe a quick last-minute gift...

    Hope you're feeling much better soon! : )
