What’s cooking.

After posting that super fast scarf the other day I got to thinking about what else is lingering in my small apartment on the needles and thought I'd give you a little rundown on the UFO department.

From oldest to newest (thank god for Ravelry, right?)


1. Phildar Pullover – I had written about this sweater a while ago talking about how I "re-fell-in-love" with it. But unfortunately it hasn't moved from that spot since then.  I do love the color and think it will be a great pullover sweater but just am still more intrigued to knit different things right now.


2. Orla – this hat was a inspired by one of my favorite designers, Orla Kiely.  It also happens to be one of my first forays into fair isle. The hat is paused because I ran out of yarn and never got a new ball! Really what needs to happen is that I need to start it over with all new yarn or find one more of the one that I'm missing… yea whatever.

Zickzack Tunic

3. Zickzack Tunic – I actually dug this out from the bottom of my yarn bin a few weeks ago.  I finished the front and need to start on the back.  I am actually really excited about finishing this sweater and hopefully will have something to show off before the end of the year.

Lightweight Pullover

4. Lightweight Pullover – This is just a matter of timing. I had started it right after Rheinback last year and then got sucked into so many other knits last winter. This is the other sweater I hope to complete before the year is up. I think once the temps start dropping it's going to reclaim it's space in my go-to knit bag.


5. Rambling Rows – This blanket it's about half way done. It's so large now that it's an at home only knit. I like to take it out if I just need that mindless garter stitch to get me through a stress free evening. I'm in no rush to finish it so I think it's going to be a while for that big reveal.

In an effort of full disclosure, I'm pretty sure that's not everything but just everything I've managed to find at this moment. Not to mention the fact that I start new projects on a very regular basis. I even have two in my purse right now that I haven't blogged or cataloged in Ravelry yet! It's going to be one knit packed fall and winter.

What's lingering in your UFO pile?

    The Phildar pulli’s nice, but I wonder if it’s because the seasons dictate a cozier, cuddlier fall knit. And the Orla is pretty–if you don’t have enough yarn you could try making a child-size first, then getting new yarn for the adult size? Just thinking out loud.
    I have projects not in the Rav database, too! :-) Call me lazy.

    They all look nice! I have only two projects going on at the moment: Thermal of course, since always and a little baby set that I just started. Thermal is my parallel project!
