I’ve been on a roll, trying to finish up all my UFOs before this baby shows up and takes up all my knitting time. It’s felt really great- kind of freeing- to clear out my Ravelry WIP list (not to mention the shelves in my studio where I keep my WIPs-there’s so much more room in there!).
And, so, the time has come for me to really buckle down and get to work on the White Whale of my WIPs… The one that keeps getting away (or rather, the one that I keep intending to work on but then get bored with and do something else instead).
The infamous Papaya Sweater!I’ve been working on it all week, and I’ve managed to cruise through a skein and a half of stockinette for the body. And, it’s looking surprisingly good! I’ve got 10 inches of body so far, which feels like a great start. I’m going to take a break from the body at the end of this skein, work up the arms, then use the rest of my yarn to see how long I can make the body.
I can’t say it’s terribly interesting knitting (it’s just miles of stockinette with a little bitty garter stitch border), but it’s simple and satisfying. Plus, it’s kind of fun to see how big/long of a sweater it’s going to end up being. I hope it gets massive!
Do you have any “White Whale” Projects in your stash? What’s keeping you from finishing them up?
