In-progress Wramblings

I’m working on a headboard for our bed! It will probably be a couple weeks before it’s finished, but I’m 30+ percent done with the crocheting and I’m excited about it. I think it will be a good place to start for redecorating (or decorating in the first place, actually; we haven’t touched our bedroom since we moved in). I’d been looking for ideas and inspiration for weeks, and I finally found it, so yay! And since the headboard idea came to me, I think I figured out a color palette. It will be bold. No specifics yet, though, just pictures in my head. Edited to add: Yes, I am crocheting a headboard. It will have non-fiber bones and hardware and it will be awesome.

I need to cast on for a plain/simple sock. So, I should go look at my yarn and pick something.

I should also look at my sock yarn for yarn for that shawl I’m going to make. I need to buy beads, but I can’t buy beads until I know what yarn I’m going to use. I wish it was in lace weight, but nope, it’s in fingering. Which will certainly work, but it makes choosing yarn a bit tougher for me.

I also can’t get Leethal’s Adventure Knit-a-long out of my head.

I plied some yarn this week and emptied some bobbins to get ready for Tour de Fleece. I’m getting so excited!

Progress on A’s Christmas stocking has stalled a bit while I’ve been focusing on the headboard, but it’s not abandoned. I’m still liking how it’s looking, so that’s good.

I feel bad that I don’t have photos for this post, but I haven’t taken them, and if I go take them (and upload, and go through them, and edit as needed …) I won’t get anything posted. So I guess I’ll be leaving you in suspense on the actual visuals for now.

Happy Wednesday! What are you working on this week?

  1. I can’t wait to see the headboard!

  2. I can’t wait to see what a crocheted headboard looks like! What an interesting idea.

  3. Same projects, nothing has changed. I’ve actually been too tired to knit lately! I know, it’s sad, but things will calm down eventually. Hope you find some yarn for that shawl. I just queued it myself as well.

    Oh and I can’t wait to see the head board. It’s going to be gorgeous.

    • Aw, that’s so sad about being too tired to knit! I’ve been there, though, and you’re right, you’ll be able to get back to it at some point (hopefully not too far off). And thanks! I think the headboard is going to be great.

  4. I’m going to have to google crocheted headboards, just to get an inkling of what yours might look like!
    I finally picked up my knitting again after about 6 months of a hiatus. I have been too busy reading and writing to want to pick up the yarn! But now that summer days at the park with friends have set in, it’s the perfect time to pick up my cowl and get started again.

    • Ooh, definitely! Stitching with friends is so fun! Now you’ve made me curious, to see if there are other crocheted headboards out there, and if so, what they look like. 😛 Happy knitting (and reading and writing)!

  5. I want to see this too! I am really interested in what it will look like!

  6. You do have a lot of projects in the work! Can’t wait to see that headboard.
