Wednesday WIPs

Welcome to a very special edition of Wednesday WIPs.  Ok, it's not that special.  And not even all that WIP-y. 

1) Still plugging away at the Crocus Bud Shawl.  I haven't done much with it because I've ben obsessed with my Tunisian Scarf.  Which brings #2

2) My first Tunisian Scarf.  IT'S DONE!!!!  Not a WIP anymore, but I'm posting it anyway.

Ta-Da!!  It's kinda small, but it's meant for a kid anyway.  It's going to go to charity.  :)

3) Baby hat.  A co-worker somehow charmed me into making a hat for her friend's baby.  I've made a ton and they're super quick and easy to make.  I barely started on that last night.  As in set out the yarn and hook.  Heh.  I'm procrastinating.

4) A very very sad day for that fated sweater.  I'm waving my white flag.  I give up and it's being frogged.  What's so sad is I made it this far!
Well thats really only about 1/3 complete.  The yarn is just too frustrating and it's taking forever.  I DO want to make this sweater one day.  It's a fairly simple pattern and looks amazing.  It's supposed to look like this:

See?!  It's so pretty!!  And would have looked great in my rainbow yarn.  But I just can't tolerate it anymore.  I'll start over with some better yarn for sure.  Still sad day for my way-too-expensive Noro Yarn.  Which I'm likely going to give away or sell now.  Or maybe jsut set it in the corner for awhile to think about what it's done.

So with that out of the way now and my Tunisian scarf done, I'll get more done on my Crocus Bud Shawl. So hopefully I'll have better photos of that to post next week!

That's it for Wednesday WIPs.  Hope everyone is having a great week thus far!
