WIP Wednesday

...well okay, so it's Thursday already...sue me :)

I usually write up my blog posts for a whole week during the weekend and set them to schedule. I try to make sure that my Wednesdays and Fridays are "reserved" for the WIP's and FP's but somehow I lost track over the last couple of days.

Let's be a rebel and have the WIP Wednesday on a Thursday - ooooooh, I feel quite the punk now :)

Remember THIS WIP?
Uhm, ya - as you may have guessed, it did not survive my CFS (Compulsive Frogging Syndrome).
Whilst the pattern was easy to follow and there was nothing really wrong with the garment,
I made it look ridiculous

So....I frogged away again (quite therapeutic at times, I tell ya) and found myself another pattern.

I love me some lace patterns that don't require endless counting but are easy to remember without having to whip out the pattern every turn of the needles. The Odette Waterfall cardigan by Sian Brown certainly ticked all the boxes.

This was the status a few hours after casting on 
WIP status: 31 March 2012

Close up of the pattern

And this is how far I had come by 06 April 2012

By now I am almost at the second opening for the armhole, so I'd say about 60% done and this time I am sure fairly confident that the cardi will survive...but hey, you just never know with me, right?

Check out some more WIP's over at
Tami's Blog and at Ginny's Blog

Oh, and before I go, don't forget that I have not one but TWO give-aways going at the moment:
