Work-in-progress Wednesday - #1

I'm now going to jump on the WIP wednesday bandwagon started by the fabulous Tami

It's funny how I can be going through a hectic time in my life (anyone who has or is getting ready to graduate from college knows what I'm talking about), but still somehow find time to knit and spin.  If anything I am more productive!

I'm making great progress on my Beatnik, I really love the cabling, it is so much fun.  Also, the yarn Plymouth Worsted Merino Superwash is a favorite, it is so smooshy!  

My Tulip socks are growing slowly but surely.  The cabling is challenging enough that I have to pay close attention to what I'm doing.  The Shibui Knits Sock yarn is fun to knit with (although I'm not blown away by it).

My Velvet Morning colorwork sweater is slowly growing, I think that my tension for the floats is fine and I'm surviving the purled wrong-side well enough.  This should be a favorite knit when it's done.

I'm also finally getting somewhere with my alpaca handspun.  It just has a great texture and I love having a chance to work with it a little bit every day.

I love WIP wednesdays because I get to see what everyone is working on.  You all have some amazing projects on the needles right now!  Keep up the wonderful work!

  1. Wow, you are busy! I've had my eye on Beatnik for ages, and so looking forward to seeing how yours progresses. Also, fair isle knit flat? Eep! I'm terribly impressed and just a tiny bit scared. Enjoy!

  2. All the colors you're using are my favorite colors! I think your Beatnik is going to be great in that blue. That handspun alpaca looks fantastic!

  3. Beatnik is such a great sweater - can't wait to see yours. And Velvet Morning looks just incredible. Looks like lots of work but it'll be a work of art when it's done!

  4. I can't decide if I should start doing WIP Wednesdays or not, mostly because school keeps me too busy to knit that much anyways.
    I love that you are able to successfully work on THREE projects at the same time. I have 2 right now, but one is getting very much neglected. I cannot wait to see where these end up.

  9. Mmm, I love the look of your yarns---the ones you're knitting with and especially your handspun, which is so delicate and a great warm colour.

  12. Excellent WIPs! It's clear that you won't let the winter blahs affect the colors you choose to knit with. Yay!
