Well here we are again on WIP Wednesday. I love this day, as it motivates me to keep my projects ticking along. I've been working on myself lately, working hard to suppress my need to constantly buy new wool and cast on new projects. I have loads of things I want to knit--all of which require the purchase of new yarn. Now I don't have a huge stash, but I do have 5 separate contains of yarn that I could be using, but wish I didn't have to.
With that in mind I pulled out a tank top I knit years ago, when I first started learning to knit. I was ambitious, didn't know what I was doing, and subsequently hated it. Then I shoved it in a bag and hid it for, well, years. You all know what I'm talking about.
On Tuesday, I pulled it out, frogged it, and then started looking for something I could make with the yarn instead. I feel good, using what I have before I start to buy more. My husband and I are working hard to spend less and save more (I've got big plans in my future), so doing this really is beneficial. I'll let you know how long I can keep it up.......
In addition, I've cast on my second (yes, you read that right, I'll show you the first one on Friday) Ramona tank top. I'm using a different yarn from my stash (very similar colours though), one that I bought last summer to make the girls a tank top. It is Sirdar pure cotton 4ply. I still have 1/2 of that original tank top done and sitting in a bag, but of course now it is too small. Anyway, I don't like this yarn as much, but I'm going to try to stick with it, as it will make a nice top in the end. I hope. Here's where I'm at:
Terrible, blurry picture, but it does show the pattern rather well.
That's all from me for now, here are the hops:
