WIP Wednesday

In Knitting,WIP Wednesday on 02/17/2011 by emehkoko

Well, my current WIP is my boyfriend’s fingerless gloves still. I’ve been so busy with ridiculous amounts of school work (biology and chemistry both decided this week formal lab reports would be do along with three chemistry assignments) so I never got to do my “What’s in my Queue” day and am now second guessing the pattern I chose for my yarn for my fingerless gloves. We’ll see. I may just do a list of fingerless glove patterns and ask for opinions on which to use for my yarn. I don’t know, we’ll see.

Anyways, here are some pictures of the fingerless gloves for my boyfriend. They’ve gotten a few inches added on to them this week, which is pretty good for how busy and all I’ve been.

I think this picture shows the color best

Shows progress when you look back at the last few posts

Shows progress as well

Sorry everything’s sorta choppy now. In the middle of making this, I started having roommate issues and am about ready to explode. So yeah, sorry.

Taking a Break

In Knitting,WIP Wednesday on 02/10/2011 by emehkoko

So, while I’m taking a break from studying my butt off for my Biology exam tomorrow, I decided to update this.

I meant to start getting into the weekly habit of doing WIP Wednesdays starting yesterday so I’d at least have a place to start with my blog until I got on more steady ground with my knitting and school work and working out. Well, in the midst of studying for my Biology exam, I forgot. So I’m making a quick, picture-less comment on what I’m working on right now.

I’m using the Dog Paw Gloves pattern to make fingerless gloves for my boyfriend to use for longboarding. (I added a link in case anyone is wondering, “What is longboarding?” so there you go if that’s you =]) I’m using some beautiful Malabrigo sock yarn in 800 Tiziano Red. However, when you click that link and look at the colors, what I’m using looks more like the 801 Boticelli Red. Maybe I got one that was mislabeled because the colorway that it said was 800 Tiziano Red. Oh well, doesn’t matter, but that’s what it looks like and what I’m working on.

Also, I will either post a few pictures of the fingerless gloves mentioned above either tonight or tomorrow. Depends how the studying goes tonight.
