Works in Progress

So as a way of keeping myself accountable, I've photographed my current crafty works in progress. Updating them once a week seems reasonable, right? Right.

Here we go!

1. Through the Woods Hood (Ravelry pattern link): All that's left to do is sew on the buttons and photograph it on a person instead of in a heap. Maybe I rope Sis into modeling for me over Thanksgiving!

I really love the color of this. It's a deep, rich red, though it's showing up more purple in the photo. I'm hoping it gets cold enough here for me to get some good use out of it.

2. Gathered Pullover (Ravelry pattern link): Just the sleeves and seaming left to do and I'm so excited about this sweater. It'll be my third sweater to knit and definitely my favorite so far.

The yarn is Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool, bought on sale at my LYS. 10 skeins at a major discount was a great treat for me, since I don't knit too many sweaters because of the cost. 

3. Roses Cross Stitch: This needs washing, pressing, and framing (And apparently a picture that's actually in focus). As soon as that's all done, it'll be sent off to its new home with a close friend of mine who is an avid Glee watcher, but only because of Kurt and Blaine. I hadn't originally intended on gifting it; it was just a time-filler project that was hidden away when I had other, more pressing projects going. When I remembered that red and yellow roses were the flowers that Kurt and Blaine always give each other, I added the "Klaine 5EVA" (because five-ever is more than forever) and decided it would be going to said friend.

4. Platform 9 3/4 Cross Stitch: Over 80 colors in this thing and I'm just getting started! Progress will probably be slow going on this since it's by far the most complicated cross stitch I've done yet. But I just adore the pattern so much. I'm already thinking happy thoughts about other book related cross stitch projects that I want to do!

That's all I've got in the works right now, but it's more than enough to keep me busy. Now, if you'll excuse me, my crock pot chicken and sweet potatoes are smelling delicious and I need to find a green veggie to have with them!
