WIP Wednesday #4


WIP Wednesday #4

After my marathon of Christmas knitting/crocheting was completed my brain felt like mush and I swear there for a day or so that my fingers and forearms had turned to limp noodles. So, with some mindless TV staring (there might have been some drool involved) for recuperation, I have begun to work once again on my Hexipuffs. Yeah! Hexipuffs!



I now have a count of 23 and one on the needle.

Previously, before my insane notion to start Christmas knitting/crocheting at the end of November, I had started on a sweater coat for myself. I found this pattern in Crochet Today Nov/Dec 2007 issue. It seems simple enough for a busy Crocheter, something that can be worked on while herding the hoodlums or while relaxing in front of the TV.


Dark grey is one of my favorite colors, if not the favoritest one. The yarn is Simply Soft Caron and it is oh, so , soft. You know the yarn is really soft when you find yourself setting there petting your project. I’m looking forward to getting back to work on the sweater.

Knitpick’s pattern holder is awesome.



I’ve been looking for something like what I use for my cross-stitch patterns, but none of the local shops carry them anymore.  Looking through Knitpick’s recent catalog, TA! DA! Found one.



It’s working out well, so far.

UPDATE: Our cat is doing really well. Saturday night he had a set back and then Sunday morning he got up like nothing ever happened and started eating and interacting with his brothers. The vet still has no clue what had been wrong.  We think it might have been a combination of missing the dog (they had been close) and bad cat food. I had opened a new bag Monday last, the same day he had come down sick. The other two didn’t even eat much of it, either. Since then we have replaced the food and he is now recovering. Yeah!

  4. I love the texture of the stitches on that sweater coat you've started, and it really is a great colour, too.

    And yay for hexipuffs! Yours look adorable.

  5. Minding My Own Stitches, thanks. Hexipuffs are satisfying in that they are individually a quick finish.

  8. Hope your cat is still on the mend. My hexipuffs have been neglected lately but they are great when you just feel the need to finish something.

  9. Yarn Changer, thanks. My cat is doing so much better! I'm on the road a lot and the Hexipuffs are great for that and in-between projects.
