I’m participating in my very first WIP Wednesday, where I show off what I’m knitting! I have a couple things on the needles right now, and I’m hoping to finish some of them sometime this week. Hopefully.
I’ve been working on my Haruni shawl since right before we left for Oregon, being one of two projects I cast on for the drive. I didn’t knit this much as we drove, but I got a lot of it done in Colorado. I’m knitting it with a skein of Knitwhits Freia Ombre Lace in the Atlantis colorway, which I bought at Webs this past spring.
As you can see, I’m pretty much done and at the blocking stage, but I need more blocking boards! Bummer! I can’t call this done until I block it, so hopefully I can pick up more boards sometime soon.
I’ve been on a vanilla sock knitting kick since the spring. I knit up a couple pairs of socks using Lornas Laces Shephard Sock Multi that I bought back in 2008, and I wanted to use this skein of Miss Babs Tarte that Ted bought me when he was in Alexandria last fall to knit another pair. I’ll be honest, I’m pretty bored with these socks, but I’m at least on the second sock and I’m at least close to where I’ll be putting the afterthought heel.
Oh, and I love how the box bag I made a couple years ago matches the socks! Of course I had to put these socks in this bag.
I cast on Bonny by Tin Can Knits the other day. I wanted to start this before our move, but I figured the shawl and the socks would keep me busy until we arrived. I bought a skein of Madelinetosh Prairie in the Nightbloom colorway specifically for this project, and so far I’ve been cruising along.
I’m pretty happy with my projects right now!
