Clearing out the WiPs

So when my little yarn buddy died at the end of March, I didn’t much feel like doing anything with yarn. It’s been weird doing anything at home this month, because Bruiser was such a character and a big part of the family. Before you get ready to tell me “It’s just a cat.” – don’t. I won’t be nice to you. We got his little urn of ashes back a week later and he sits under the spotlight in the lawyer’s bookcase that Dave built. Here are three things that I put down, that I’m planning to finish this week, so I can move on into designing some nice Tunisian shirts and skirts for summer (assuming summer ever comes to Manitoba!!):

This just looks like a floppy dishrag but it will eventually be an autumn corset vest.

This started out as a round centrepiece made with short rows and then I wondered what the second round would look like if I stacked the triangle shaping all on one side. I’m going to alternate lace with solid stitching and do a few heretical things in the next round. I just want to play with direction and lines. I don’t know what this is, really. It’s probably a blanket. I love the rustic feel of this yarn. It’s Briggs&Little. I’m veering away from the jewel colours that I was into for several months and moving into hues that are more natural.
This is a baby blanket. I am doing the corners a little differently on the last round.
