Easy enough to keep up with WIP Wednesday, it's the FO Friday that's often the problem.

This week there has been knit progress and crochet progress. From the knitting bag, a few more inches on the Wild Iris Cowl, 8 more rows and the knitted-on border (with beads) to complete.

From the crochet side, the start of a new cowl. Lots of invisible progress as I have started this one a few times. It's an in-the-round version of a cowl I previously crocheted back-and=forth. Progress is slowed by note-taking for writing up the pattern. I like the strong graphic element and the yarn, Quince & Co. Osprey, is one of my favorites.

There's always an aura of embalming about my WIP's pictured in isolation, so I'm including a picture of the whole cluttered environment, pared down summer version.

Could be the book cover for my memoirs.
For a glimpse into the much more orderly world of the WIP's of others, visit Tami's Amis.


  1. The Wild Iris Cowl is beautiful in that colour.
    And it's great to see some pictures of the mess too ;)
    Love your big windows - wish I had some in my livingroom.

    1. Thanks--that's the screened in porch which feels like being in a tree house--of course, it's only for the summer:)

  2. That orange yarn is perfect for showing of that pattern!

    1. Thank you. I was saving it for something special.
