It's nearly September, so does anybody have any plans for this?

I'm planning to make a pair of Selbuvotter Mittens (Ravelry link).

They are lovely Kathryn. I am not sure I will join this as I have two things on the go. I will see how much progress I make

I love Selbuvotter mittens! My friend in IN loves colourwork... she may be getting a pair for Christmas... but I can't cast on straight away as I'm busy with a Ravelry handspun KAL for the first half of the month... I may join you later!!!

Actually, I think I'm about 'coloured out' with all the hats I've been doing, not to mention my crochet blanket and one or two other bits. I have the pattern and yarn for a colour work jacket I want to do but I think it will have to wait a bit.

After all it's already been waiting for almost 3 years. Rolling Eyes

I think it was seeing your wonderful mittens that inspired me! I asked for the book for Christmas last year, and my brother obliged.

I am going to make several chullos for a stall at our local library's Fall Festival. So, I suppose that will count as colorwork. My oldest son also wants a chullo made with black, white and red. I'm quite excited to get working on that. I think it will be quite striking when it's finished.

KM, those chullos sound lovely. Be sure to post pics.

I have found a pattern called "Peas and Carrots" that I think might make an interesting looking purse. I may have a go at that. There is another called "Bean Sprouts" That I may try, also, perhaps one on each side of a purse.

Laughing That all sounds very healthy. Laughing

Some of those squares might be good for practising my crochet on.

That is the same site that is giving away the lace knitting or lace crochet books. They have a variety of those "block of the week", both knit and crochet. I think that is season 3, so you might want to look at the others, too. I am sending the knit lace hearts one to LM for a scarf or shawlette she is thinking of doing.

Colorwork amazes me but I've never been brave enough to try. But you can bet I'll be watching.

Tay, I thought the same thing but when I had a project that I wanted with a verticle stripe I was motivated to try it. Mind now, it was not artistic picture work, but I did need to switch colors back n forth in every row. I was surprised at how -not hard- it was! The results were well worth it. I just found that every row or three I needed to stop n untalgle my spools. I wish there were a neater way to do that Rolling Eyes
I had an off white ground with a brown/metalic stripe on either end of the row. The stripe was framed in the off white. I had the smaller amounts or yarn for the edges of the project in little bags to keep them from getting too twisted into the other, middle area, yarn but it would still tangle n need unmessing.
The project is in my blog (linked below V) if my description is too confusing.

I haven't started the chullo, but I am working on a secret project for Lobug. It has colorwork, so that's going to have to be my bit.

I'm continuing to work on WIPs. One is the Northern Lights sweater (a free Red Heart pattern)

http://www.coatsandclark.com/cgi-bin/MsmGo.exe?grab_id=71&page_id=14223616&query=northern+lights&hiword=LIGHT+LIGHTER+LIGHTING+LIGHTLY+lights+northern+

The first one I made was off-white with bright multi-colored yarn.

The current WIP is black with pastel multi-colored yarn.

The body is done. Sleeve one is about 3/4 done; sleeve two has only the ribbing done.
