[potd]. wednesday

i love this image by guymyloo  - a subtle reminder to return to the things i love and finish the project(s) in my basket. stat. are you a knitter? please tell us what you are currently working on or hope to! xo

WSIP (work soon in progress ^ ^) (209/365)


  1. I was an obsessed knitter, and then photography came along. Maybe it's time I combined my two passions!

  2. Love this! I'm currently knitting a pair of wool shorties for my little shorty, and remnant afghan. I'm crocheting a pikachu for my daughter's upcoming birthday.

  3. love the photo, nice pastels, but these look like cotton embroidery thread not a knitting yarns.
    Anyway, I love knitting and also crocheting, don't like to do huge project, I enjoy making little hats, or blankets.

    And Jana , yes it's cotton embroidery thread but I want to knit it with small needles so as to make a little summer top for my two y.o daughter. Maybe it will become something else if it's too hard but i will try ;)


  6. I love the photo! Every time I see a beautiful ball of yarn, I want it!! Right now I'm working on an heirloom baby blanket for a dear friend.. it's crocheted, but that counts too right?! :)

  7. That yarn is beautiful! Not only would I knit with that but I would frame the picture of it! lol
    I am currently working on a baby cacoon for a friend. her baby shower is this weekend and I know how much those newborn babies love to be swaddled!

    Yup, like you & Jen G., I too was an avid knitter before I "found" my camera bug again! There's a gorgeous eggplant mohair sweater waiting to be finished (along with a scarf for my SO, a baby hat and a couple of other projects) just waiting to see the light of day. But I can't seem to come out from behind the camera (or computer screen!!)

  9. I wish I could knit. My mom is al into things like this. She tried to teach me but I just couldn't get the hang of it. :-/

    I would like to let you know that you was giving the Stylish Blog Award at my blog. To receive it you may go to http://mommyandwife2011.blogspot.com/2011/03/stylish-blog-award.html .

  10. I'm a "wanna-be" knitter!!! I bought a book, some yarn and the recommended needles - I discovered that I think I need an instructor...
