Dones and Half Dones

Kitty Poufs done. I learned a lot from making these. I see why people make a lot of them. It takes a few to get one right.

Arrow mitts done. Yeah, I know. The gradient yarn didn't play nice with the pattern. You would never know there was so much variation in color looking at the balls. Lesson learned with that gradient thing. Stick to things that don't need a match.

 One Harbor Lights sock from Miss Babs done. #2 is already on the needles so second sock syndrome was avoided.

By the time the Tour gets to Paris I want to have all the handspun projects off the needles. It's going to be a race to the finish with the Hap. There is still a long way to go.

This is for kathy b. She recently wrote a post about what she does to her patterns. Look at this mess. It's the Tracey vest and I am in the land of crazy with it. There are now decreases on the neck and the armholes while trying to keep it all in pattern. It's a challenge and the end is in sight but at only one row a sitting it's still going to be a while. My brain can't take anymore.


  1. I do that to patterns too. Especially intricate ones with lace. And decreases. Cute kitty poufs and I like the mitts. Have fun with all of your projects.

  2. Beautiful work you have accomplished! I love the mitts anyway, it is interesting to see how the colors reacted to each other along the way! the vest will be torture but you are so close to the finish line! As for the Hap-I am so done and I have just finished the middle portion.....

  3. MEOW!!! The cats are darling.
    Hap is just amazing. The color changes are perfect and no ends to weave in. I LOVE it.
    You are a knitting warrior. My goodness I love all your projects. Thanks for the pattern reality check for me! Hooray I'm not alone

  4. The cats look great, but I really love that Harbour sock!

  5. All your projects look beautiful to me. The kitty poufs are so cute.

  6. Awwwwwwww...such sweet kitty poufs.

    I dub you QUEEN of the complicated patterns. WOW! I don't know that I could keep all that stright in my head. LOL

  7. I love the cats! Everything is lovely!

  8. Those kitty poufs are darling. I'm in awe of your work on that Tracy vest. Wow....that chart looks mind boggeling!

  9. I love all the projects, the poufs can be addictive says the woman who made six of them.
