I have a lot more WIPS than I want to mention, but these two are my latest that I am going to finish! Cheesy

This is a mock cable cowl made from Madeline Tosh...I have one more row of "cable" and then a few rows of ribbing left to do!



I started this yesterday...one of my goals for 2013 is to make one project out of each magazine or book I buy and then give away the magazine or book so it just does not take up space for the new ones I want!  This is a cowl from Interweave, I believe the Spring 2011. The yarn is Knitpicks Swish Superwash Merino in a blue colorway.

alwaysinmyroom - those cowls are both very pretty!  The mock cable one looks so warm and cosy!  I like the idea of actually using the magazine / book for the project you want, and then giving the magazine away.  If only there were more knitting hours in the day!  Cheesy

My WIP this week... can you guess...



The ten-stitch blanket.  It is currently about 110cm wide, and I still have lots of yarn to use!  It is good winter knitting as it keeps you lovely and warm whilst you are working on it! 

Also, I have some egg hats on the go (as the ten-stitch is to now too big to take to my knitting group!).  These are very quick to do, the pattern is EggHeads by Emily Ivey.



What are you working on this week?

Trekky - that blanket is looking fab! I love all the colours   Grin

I notice you are getting a sort of  'ridge' effect where you are picking up along the edge of the sides - You'll have to show me sometime how you are picking up those stitches cause when I did this pattern I didnt get a raised edge  Huh

The ridge is only on that side, and I think (?) I prefer the other side which is ridge-free.  I  have noticed that some ten-stitches are completely ridge-free.  For me I've been sl1, k8, sl1, then picking up the stitch from the border, knitting this, and then slipping the slipped stitch over.  I think it is this slipping that gives the ridge.  From looking at other projects I think some are joined with a k2tog (which probably is an easier move than all that knitting & slipping).  Does that make sense?  Smiley

RLB--there are WIPS on the Crochet, Fiber and Knitting Boards....this one is supposed to be for knitting of some sort...I am sure you will not be tossed out if you can't find a more appropriate board! Cheesy

I frogged the blue cowl since putting it together did not give me the same look as in the book...I might just as well have knitted in the round instead of having to join....so, I now need to find a more subtle variegated yarn or a different pattern for that yarn...I finished the mock cable cowl...

I can't believe that the only scarf I have left on needles is my linen stitch scarf...what a tedious knit that is...

trekky--that blanket is going to be so pretty with all of those colors...I really need to either do the circular one of that one...seeing your progress makes me want to do the one you are doing...

I think I am also going to do an entralec hat...my first!

I finally(!!!!!) finished my blue sweater (it's blocking, hopefully I'll have pictures tomorrow) so I started a hat tonight while watching Downton Abbey:

Trekky, your blanket looks so great! Wow, it has gotten big.

mandy, what stitch are you using? It looks almost like herringbone, but only slanting one way. Very cool.
