WIP Wednesday.

It's been a while since I've shared anything actually in process here. I guess it's more fun to share them as they get started...or once they're finished. The in between time can be hard to capture (or a bit of a slog...or both!) But what the heck; I spend too much time on that in between not to share a bit of it here!

First, a project I bound off last night. Took this "yay, I won yarn chicken!" photo this morning, just before I wove in the ends and gave it a good soak. Hopefully this will be Friday's FO feature!

Next, the project I'm planning to begin in its place. This is Nangou, which I'm going to knit in the pattern suggested yarn and colorway (just because I happened to have two and a half skeins leftover from other projects...well, and also because caffeine and ivory will go with most of my summer wardrobe!). The designer, Melanie Berg, is hosting a shawl KAL in her Revelry group and I'm looking forward to playing along.

And then the two I have in process. The Blue Blanket for Charlie's little brother is only barely begun. I've got a long way to go (but I still do have a few months...I'm not worried!)

Last but certainly not least - the Simple Tee from the latest Churchmouse collection. This photo is from last Thursday, just after I cast on, but the piece really doesn't look that much different now. Hopefully that will change  quickly since I plan to give this one most of my knitting time for the next few days. Straight stockinette, even on size 4 needles, should go pretty fast!

and there you have least for today. The new designs are coming fast and furious and I still have a few gaps I want to close in my summer wardrobe. stay tuned!

Happy Wednesday - and happy knitting!

This knitting (and finishing!) projects in the season they are meant to be worn in is almost a foreign concept to me, but I am glad to see that it can be done! I'm just happy if I finish anything. Seeing some completed socks and your wips this morning has motivated me to go unearth some ufo socks. Wish me luck, in both finding and finishing them!

That's a lot of stuff on the needles! But, like reading, you seem to be pretty FAST! So, I imagine there will be FO posts in not too long! 45 books???? What the heck???!!!! And I was feeling so incredibly proud with 13!! Oh well. For me, 13 is already 8 more than I read in the whole of 2015!! So, it's all relative, right?

I can always count on you to have something interesting on the needles! (Because that sure isn't the case here. . . but maybe soon.) Lovely projects, all!

I love all those soft neutrals ... They suit you, I think. And the baby blue is adorable.
