Three on Thursday

Today's Three on Thursday is three knitting projects in the works.

Alstroemeria yarn from Shirsty Cat Designs

1.  I finished knitting my Stephen West Purl Ridge Scarf.  I'm counting it as 'still in the works' because I haven't woven the ends in yet.  Or blocked it.  It really doesn't need blocking but I might try to stretch it out a tiny bit.  It's not quite as long as I'd hoped it would be.

And yes, as you can see from the photos, the home renovations continue.  And yes, I am quickly loosing my my mind, my patience and my cool due to the unorganized mess.

It's a knitted f bomb.
Nope, it's not a black pumpkin.

2.  Secret Santa knitting.  I still need to add a bit of detail.... and I need to knit eight more.  Possibly twelve more, depending on how generous I'm feeling closer to Christmas.

3.  Another Secret Santa project.  Since taking this photo, I've cast on a Hitchhiker and have a whopping 12 stitches on the needles.  Another Christmas gift, 'almost' done.

  1. Lovely knitting! That cowl is really beautiful -- what a great way to show off lovely yarn. (And . . . is that a time bomb???? Adorable!)

    1. Thanks! It was a fun, quick simple project and now I can finally say I've knit a Stephen West design. :) And yes, it is a bomb. It's going to be an "F-bomb"

    1. You should! They are great, mostly mindless knits with just enough patterning to keep you from loosing your mind.

  5. I'm not sure how I've not been following the blog of someone that knits bombs!?! Clearly, I need to stay tuned. (Bonus points if it is, as suggested above, a Wile E. Coyote bomb.)

    1. I need to block mine because it's a tiny tad bit too short. Feel like I'm wearing a choker when I double wrap it. Love the pattern though. Thanks for the recommendation!

    1. Thank you! The green is knitting up so well, I'm not sure I'm going to be able to put it in the gift pile. Yikes!

  8. Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?
