Finish-itis Strikes!

I'm on a bit of a finishing kick these last few days. Being house bound with a sick kidlet has forced me to take a serious look at my wips bin... it's out of control I tell you! Not only do I have about 12 projects on the needles right now, I have had a pile of finished knits that needed to be blocked or ends needed to be woven in.

So I organized the wips into project bags and made a vow to finish at least 2 more before I cast on a new one. I got out my blocking mats and pins/wires and got my Whippoorwill Shawl blocked and my Ishbel Shawl is drying as I type. I blocked out and wove in the ends on some washcloths I started last year. I kitchner stitched the toes on the River Bank Socks and I finished the embroidery on Tuck. I also wove in ends on some fingerless mittens and sewed a button on a baby hat.

I still have a scarf to block and some mitten cuffs to seam but other than that almost everything is done and photographed! Hurrah!

Here are a few of the photos minus the shawls, they deserve a whole post for themselves...

Next on my list is finishing off a 2nd mitten and a 2nd sock, sewing on some eyes on a toy and finishing up a crochet rug I started last summer. Oh, and that Epic Sock Yarn Blanket! I need to whip up a few dozen squares, or at least 4 more this month...

What about you? Got Spring Fever yet?


  1. You go Mama Jill!
    Sorry your boy is sick :O(.
    How did you like that hat pattern?

    1. I found it fit a bit small but it was easy to knit and the flower is ridiculous! Some little girl will think it's so much fun :)

  2. I love your Tuck! Hey, I got your email about the book, no problem and I am sorry for the delay.
    Have a good weekend.
