WiP Wednesday: Volume 1 Issue 9

I thought I would share a little bit of what I have on the needles right now.  It's not much, will have to remedy that...

First I have a dishcloth that I am doing for the Going Local swap over on Ravelry.  It is clearly in its infancy.

Next I have the Knitting Game (through clue 3...I'm a bit behind).  Each week you get to pick between three different just never know quite what you will get.  They seem to compliment each other quite nicely though.

And finally we have a second Knitting Game.  I may frog this.  I have been having the hardest time trying to figure out what to do with this yarn (I have two other balls), so I thought I would try this.  I guess I will get a couple of clues done first and then make the decision.

And that is what is on my needles.  I have another project coming up that hopefully will be cast on on Friday, if my plan holds.  *Fingers Crossed*

FP: Lowell

Finished Project: Lowell
Craft: Knitting
Begin Date: September 3, 2011
Completion Date: September 12, 2011
Materials: Caron Simply Soft Paints
Notions: Safety Eyes, Fiber Fill
Pattern Source: Jerry the Musical Monkey

I can't believe that this is my first Danger Craft pattern!  I have had the book for months, but just hadn't found the right time to sit down and whip something up.  When I saw the September KAL, I knew I just had to do something and what's better than a monkey???  It worked perfectly because I had a deadline to get something done for a dear friend who was moving cross country and was in need of a friend.

Lowell came together really easily and quite quickly.  He was already to go and there was even enough time to make him a little buddy.  He has since made the trek from Montana to Pennsylvania and all reports are that he is settling in quite nicely in his new home.
