WIP Wednesday: Staying the Course

Amazingly, I've been avoiding startitis this month, spending most of of my crafting time working on the Destash Dolman I started earlier this month and the Panoramic Stole I began on Christmas Day. Don't get me wrong - there are TONS of projects I'm dying to start, but for some reason I am content to work on these with the hope of finishing them much earlier than expected (and, of course, giving me free reign to start something new!).

The Destash Dolman has become my outside-of-the-house/transit project, since I don't need to reference the pattern while I'm working. I've definitely made some good progress after a few adventures outside of the homestead: last WIP Wednesday, I had three stripes completed - now I'm up to 8!

The Panoramic Stole has seen the most progress, especially since I've been working on it diligently for the past four days. I finished up the first skein of yarn on Monday night and have reached the point in knitting where I'm so comfortable with the pattern, everything just chugs along at a nice, crisp pace. When I started this project, I pretty much assumed I'd be working on it til the springtime - and I suppose I would be, if I had allowed myself to be distracted with other projects. My goal is to bind off before the end of this month. Actually, I'd love to be finished by the end of this coming weekend, but I think that the end of this month is a much more attainable goal. Either way, it beats my original projected finish date, so

  1. Ooooo... I'm loving the way your Destash Dolman is looking. The colors are really nice together.

    1. Thanks! I was a little dubious at first, but now I'm loving it too!

  2. Both are lovely! I am trying to hold to the pieces I have started, but sometimes it is just too much temptation!!! Good luck with your focus.
