WIP Wednesday - blobs

Not much to show for myself these days. I have two works in progress at the blob stage of knitting, so they'll have to do for today.

This brownish blob will eventually be the inspiringly named 113-17 jacket with raglan sleeve and pattern on yoke in ”Silke Alpaca” from DROPS design. Oddly enough, it doesn't have raglan sleeves, so I have no idea why it is called that. But never mind. I am rising to the challenge, since the pattern has some idiosyncracies and a wacky wacky chart... Also I'm doing a few mods that other ravelers have done as well, so it may not end up resembling the original. Whee!

Watch while I attempt to be artistic with the brown blob.

Next up: blue blob.

This is an experiment in Manos Silk Blend that I hope will turn into my first written pattern. It's a circle-scarf / cowl thing, or will be eventually. I love this yarn, and kind of want everything I wrap around my neck to be silk blend. Heh.

It's not really this colour. I did some colour correction so it no longer looks turquoise, but the real colour is darker and deeper.

That's me done. Off to apply to more jobs I won't get! Okay, no more whining. (But seriously, Universe? Get someone to hire me. I swear I'm talented and awesome.)

  1. I like to think of the Drops staff sitting in an office wracking their brains for new names for patterns. "Ah 113-7 Jacket. That's a good one!"

  5. What beautiful blobs! ;) I love your artistic pics. LOL I can't to see how the mods look for your sweater. I love the original pattern so it will be exciting to see the changes you have in store. :)

    Good luck on the job hunt!

  6. I haven't made a DROPS pattern yet but have several of them queued despite the fact their names are as bland as can be. I look forward to seeing the evolving blob photos on future Wednesdays :-) Good luck with your job hunt!

  10. I love blobs because they eventually transform into wonderful, wearable knits! That is a pretty sweater pattern. I've never knitted a DROPS pattern yet but have admired many of them. Can't wait to see what the blue blob becomes. How exciting to be working on a first original pattern!

  11. I love your pictures! You made the "blobs" look great! I'll admit though (and maybe it's just my screen) but they both look blue to me! Pretty though :)
