Work In Progress Wednesday #6


This week I worked on (and finished) a Nyancat Scarf. I have the finished object post scheduled for July 1, but I’ll show you the work in progress photos now. I’m spreading out all my finished object posts because that way I’ll have something finished to show you on the weeks where I didn’t actually finish anything. :)

A while back, my friend Sam gave me this ball of wildly colorful yarn because she couldn’t get it to do anything nice. It’s the sort of yarn that I call “clown barf”. I found a black yarn in my stash that may or may not be Vanna’s Choice, and I’m making a slip stitch hat that’s both displaying and toning down the loudness of the clown barf yarn. I hope Sam likes it, because it’s her birthday present.

Last but not least, the Strangling Vines scarf. It’s been going slowly but surely, and I got a big chunk of it done on Sunday. My apartment complex is being lazy about fixing our driers, so Todd and I were stuck at the laundromat for a few hours. I’m trying to use as much of the yarn as I can and I still have a bunch left. Stef should be able to wrap it a couple times when I’m done with it, I think. Right now it is hanging at 52 inches or so.

  1. Good call on the way you’re using the clown barf yarn – I like the way it’s toned down but shown off at the same time :)

  2. I love the Nyancat Scarf! I can’t wait to see it all finished :)

  3. Lol, clown barf! Such a great name for it!

  4. Adding black yarn to any colored yarn can definitely change the effect, often in a positive way. Great choice.

  5. Great post, and I love your plan of spreading out the WIPs/FOs too – sadly I am not patient enough for that and even if I have nothing to post on a Friday, I have to post if I finish something before about Wednesday as I just can’t handle the suspense! :)

    • I find that scheduling my posts for a future date helps me handle the suspense of OMG I FINISHED MUST POST NAO! I did schedule an FO post for Sunday though, because it only took me a few hours to make it and I figured I should have something better for a Friday post.

  6. You knitted the strawberry pop tart … that is awesome!

  7. Loving the clown barf comment too!!! Very pretty WIP’s!!

  8. Your projects look great. That scarf is just crazy fun, isn’t it?

    I especially love the black yarn paired with the wild rainbow yarn.
