Knitting WIP Blog Hop

A group on Ravelry has inspired me to join a Blog Hop.  The focus is a 30 day challenge to finish a WIP and I only have 23 days left as you can see by the countdown on the right.  I have so many projects to choose from since I constantly come down with a serious case of startitis.  It seems that at least once a week, I decide to start something new.  I’ll work on it for 3 or 4 days straight and then I put it aside and return to another knitting or sewing project.  I wish I was a little more focused so that things were completed in a shorter period of time but this seems to be my process so I don’t fight it.

Here’s the project that I’m trying to finish for the Blog Hop. 

This is actually a new project.  I left my job at the end of June to pursue Knit n Sew Studio on a full time basis and this yarn and pattern were a gift from a group that I worked with for many years.  They actually gave me a gift certificate to one of my local yarn stores.  I was able to purchase the pattern, yarn, and even new Knitter’s Pride Dreamz needles.

The picture on the pattern doesn’t do the sweater justice. The pattern is by Plymouth Yarn #2555 , the yarn is Plymouth Encore in a lovely blue with a blue tweed for the trim.  Luckily there was a sample at the store or I would have walked right past this pattern.

As you can tell, I’m only about halfway done knitting the back of the sweater so completing it is going to be quite a challenge.  I really want to wear it this Fall so I’m hoping that the 2 incentives will have it finished within the month.

I also have several socks that have been sitting on the needles since last year and I’m going to try to finish at least two.

Big Goals!
