Unraveled: Baby Poncho and Love of Country

After the short novel I wrote yesterday, I promise this is just a quick pop in to join up with Unraveled, which I’d like to be back in the habit of doing each week!

This week is all about clearing the deck — both in terms of knitting and the house, to get ready to start some big (knitting) projects and settling into a more normal routine in a mostly put together new place.  My Wood Warbler is happily finished and got some wear this weekend — hopefully I’ll get some pictures of it soon! My Bousta Beanie’s drying on the window sill as we speak.  I’m on the home stretch of a baby poncho, pictured below, knit in some vintage stash Madelinetosh DK yarn, which is destined for a dear friend in Montreal whose due to have a little one arriving this October. I thought the colorway was perfect for a little pumpkin baby!

Once this is done, I’ll feel full license to start some new projects this weekend — my hands are itching for some new things to knit.  I may have already started swatching for one project, which I’m really excited to tell you about soon!

I’ve also really been enjoying Madeline Bunting’s Love of Country.  It’s a wonderful mix of travel writing and history, and it’s definitely whetting my appetite for a visit to the Outer Hebrides!

What WIPs are you working on this week?  Trying to finish any projects by the end of September??
