WIP Wednesday

Not much to report-I am halfway finished this tank top. I joined in on the April/May CAL at Fiber Freaks for summer tops, but am awaiting scads of yarn to be delivered.

I want to make a Short N Sweet next, then one of Donna's patterns, the Adina Bolero, which is sold on her sidebar. Her patterns are so easy, yet look so darn terrific. I ordered some fine rayon boucle from Ebay for that. Yes, my resolve to stop buying yarn kinda hit a bump-I ordered some spun rayon, rayon boucle from eBay and a pound of MCY hand dyed rayon from Etsy in the past week, but I swear, I am done. I needed some Spring/Summer weight yarn to make the bolero's and tanks I want to make for this summer for ME! I plan to do the "Sweet" in a tank also. So I needed the lighter yarn.



Rayon Boucle


MCY in Gardenia


Spun Rayon in London Mist

Now, if only the yarn would come in (LOL). The Knit Picks is on it's way-should be here on Friday. The WEBS, don't know, they don't send tracking, the London Mist was shipped on Monday, the Rayon boucle (blue) was shipped yesterday, the MCY-who knows-that took a while last time and there are mixed feedback on shipping times-no rush for it, but sometimes it's nice to get your hands on it, even if you aren't using it immediately.

Gotta run, today is my writing program volunteer thing at the school and I have lots of housework and Elena has Brownies tonight-another crazy day.

ooo that reminds me I have her Ophelia pattern I never have made, I should do that as well!

and all that yarn looks so yummy!

Your yarn is yummo! We're on the same wavelength - I'm making Sweet in Noro's new cotton boucle called Cotton Hill; and our Happy Hooker CAL group will likely do Short n Sweet this summer. Right now we're voting on our May/June project. It will be either Cupcake or Designer Wannabe Tank (no stripes though).

I thought about the Designer Wannabe Tank, without stripes, but can't figure out the yarn I want to use yet.

Deneen said...

Yes Kimberly, the ebay seller claims it's great for weaving and has a good "weft" (I think that's what she says)

Sheila said...

Beautiful yarn... I especially love the Rayon.

Madelyn said...

Oh man, that yarn is luscious.

Ditto on Donna's patterns, they are very easy to do.

I'm trying to resist, but all this talk about summer tops is making me tempted to find a pattern and get to work! I love the rayon yarn, too. The colors are beautiful. I can't wait to see progress on your WIPs.

Wow, I love all the yarn choices, and can just visualize the goodness to be wrought!
