WIP WIP wooray

So you may have noticed the large amount of things that are in progress from my wee bars over there... i think i have knitting ADD that and too many birthdays in too short a time so i will have a bit of an expose on the WIPS.

First off the group shot, bit alarming when you see em all like this
Individuallly in order of starting them:

The sweater of doom aka Danny's Sweater for his birthday 8th or April still a front and a sleeve to go is it gonna happen?Its getting there slowly...
Next Dream swatch scarf, has been put on the back burner a bit as its for me thus no rush what so everBamboo is pretty

I think the next in line would be the pirate bag, aka double knitting of doom its going slowly and also been put of in favour of more urgent mattersOne side is red and one side is black see... Also notice little goober holding the end of the circ together thats my yarn guide best £1.30 (plus postage) i ever spent makes things so much easier!

Next Shawl of eternal and everlasting doom. can you tell i am not loving this, its getting better now but at first it seemed to be getting nowhere oh and did i mention its all garter stitch all 160 rows of it.But well its for my friends birthday so i will perserver hopefully i can get it finished and posted by the 16th of March...

These next 2 are for the sake of completeness tho i dunno if they really count

Poly bag knitting started at the museum for demo purposes it
will ultimately be a bag if i ever get round to doing anything more with it

This is a test swatch for something i am kinda trying to design its more to see if all these ideas i have in my head are physically translatable to knitting
Yup 3 colour work and cables, am i mad? prolly...

Lastly the most recent start and that which is likely to be needed the quickest! Its the beginnings of the Pea Pod set (from IK knits, will link pattern when its done) and is for one of my dads coworkers who's wife is due to sprong next week thus i need to be getting a wriggle on!
Its coming on quite quick and look:Lace!! albeit kinda bumpy unblocked stuff but still lace!!!

So yes WIPs ago go...
