1) Outdoor Pillows
My coworker asked me to make a few pillows for her. She was having tension issues with her sewing machine, so I happily agreed to help out. Plus, she's an amazing baker (she makes cakes from scratch for birthdays and other special events in the office), so we've worked out a trade - completed pillows for cake pops!
2) Index Blocks
Carried over from Q1 and Q2. Hopefully this is the lucky quarter.
3) Wiksten tanks
I made one last quarter, so I called it a finish. But I have fabric for a few more, so it's staying on the list.
4) Staple Dress
I have half a muslin completed. Need to finish that and then make a real one. Still deciding on fabric and making room in the budget. And also deciding how to resize because I think it's a hint too big (thoughts? opinions?).
5) Snowballs in Helsinki
I'm moving this one to the official list. I finally buckled down and made a few cuts over the weekend. Realistically, I hope to just have the top done by the end of the quarter, but I'll be optimistic and add it here.
5) Drawstring pouches
I made one a few weeks ago as a gift bag and then decided they'd be great for toting my knitting. They're pretty quick to make so this should be a quick finish.
I used to have the below items in an addendum list because I didn't think they counted since they're knit, but someone won for a knitted item in Q2, so I'm going to move these to the official list.
6) Boyfriend Sweater
7) Knit Tie
WIP since March. Mr. T is getting annoyed and threatening to purchase one if I don't finish this soon.
Need to finish one sleeve and block. It's farther along than the photo, but I didn't have a chance to get a more updated one.
The below either don't count because they're not started, or I know they won't be done by the end of the quarter, but I'm still listing for motivational purposes:
9) Spectrum socks - Carried over from Q2.
10) Herringbone Cowl - My friends got me the yarn for this for my birthday last year and I started it at jury duty in October. As much as I love the pattern, I'm finding it finicky and a slow knit, so I'm unmotivated to work on this. Plus the yarn is very thick and hot - not good for summer knitting.
11) Lucky Stars Blocks - I made the first two, cut fabric for the next two, and then really let these fall to the wayside. Need to get back on schedule so I have a completed quilt by the end of the year.
12) Chuppah - For Mom's wedding at the end of October. Does anyone have any suggestions on homemade chupas? I have a lattice pattern in mind, but I'm afraid it might take too much fabric. And I'm planning on turning it into a quilt after the wedding, so I can't cut corners and use lesser quality fabric.
Lastly, judging from this post something else I need to work on this quarter is better photographs. Way too many bleached and grainy photos going up!
