Weekend Stuff


I knocked out quite a bit of my secret knitting on Friday night and didn’t touch any knitting for the rest of the weekend. That doesn’t mean that I wasn’t working on crafty stuff, though. I spent most of my weekend working on a handful of patterns. You might remember two of them. I made both of these sweaters over the summer, but somehow the patterns ended up on the back burner, and I forgot about them.  Some people have hibernating WIPs, but I ended up with hibernating patterns.


I’ve been focusing on knitting accessories for my social knitting while I work on my secret projects in part because I have a bit of a backlog of unfinished patterns. I don’t want to start any new designs that I’ll want to self publish until I get a few of the ones I’ve already started finished! I don’t know how people can handle having dozens of WIPs. I only have a handful of unfinished projects, and they’re starting to drive me a bit mad.

  1. Great designs, yes write up those patterns!!

  2. All I can say is Go for it ! I’ll definitely love to see the crochet pattern.

  3. I’m the same way – if I have more than two projects (one big, one small), I go a bit crazy. I guess that means we’re finishers? That’s not a bad thing!

    Good luck on powering through!

  4. That yellow cardigan is gorgeous! I’m eagerly awaiting that pattern.

  5. The pink (coral?) sweater looks pretty. Are these pics are taken last year before Winter? (Pls say yes because all that colourful foliage is making me yearn for summer/fall! And we’re only halfway through winter up in the north here.) As for the multiple WIPs… Having a bad/selective memory helps ease the madness. 😉

    1. I took both sets of pictures in late November at my parents’ house in Northern California. Those blackberry bushes just stay green year round!

  6. I’m going slightly insane myself – I have 4-5 unfinished patterns that I really need to get done. It’s not so much the actual writing, but it’s the finishing touches – the pictures, the gauge (most are accessories so gauge isn’t a must before starting), and making it pretty. I’m lagging on them, and really need to push through one or two a night and just finish them. I wish I could write more, but I have a feeling that until these are done, no more will make themselves available in my head to complete. 🙂 Good luck!

  7. I’m trying to be better about that, because it drives me mad, too! It’s awesome that you’ve got two nearly finished patterns!

  8. I can’t WAIT for the yellow cardi!!!
    I can only have a couple on the go too, makes me anxious!
