Work-in-progress Wednesday - #13

Yet again, Wednesday has rolled around and I have little progress to show.  Graduate school has been super busy and wonderful in every way I imagined.  I was one of those people who silently suffered through my undergraduate education in order to finally get to this level, and let me say that it was worth it!

In knitting news, I've been slowly working away on my Gemini.  This colorway of Hempathy is one of those yarns that makes me want to sit in the sun while knitting to better enjoy the depth of the color.  I have high hopes for this project, it should be just was wonderful as my Buttercup is.


I actually started a new project based off of my scrap blanket.  After completion of that massive project, I realized that I had a whole bunch of leftover sock yarn bits too and have decided to make a pillow to match the blanket!


I haven't been spinning at all, the main reason being that I don't have chairs in my apartment yet (I know...).  But my amazing brother is driving over a huge UHaul full of stuff this weekend, so soon I'll be able to get back on track!

I hope that you are all having a great Wednesday and I hope that you also join in for WIP Wednesday with Tami's Amis.

  6. So glad to hear you're enjoying school - and finding your knitting grove again. You do such beautiful work I'm sure this sweater won't be an exception. And you're pillow looks like so much fun. Thank goodness for family. Now you'll be able to have a seat when you're done unpacking!

  9. Gemini looks amazing already. The colour is gorgeous and I can understand why you would want to knit in this sunshine, it must make this colour pop to no end.
    And great idea that your scrap blanket gets a pillow brother :)

  15. Yay! I'm glad you're loving grad school. :) The lights went on over here and I was suddenly excited for the semester, so I'm a little jealous that you've started already. ;) The sweater looks awesome and that pillow is going to be super cute!

  16. I had to stare at your photo of your Gemini for a while to soak in that fantastic color. It's looking wonderful! Love your new pillow, too. I'm so glad that you're settling into graduate school and your new life -- enjoy every second!

  17. You do absolutely gorgeous work! I flipped through some of your older posts and see you recently re-located to NC for school. I hope you enjoy it here as much as I have been! My family and I re-located to the Raleigh area from PA about 18 months ago (my husband goes to NC State- he's the chemistry nerd to my genetics and biology nerdyness)and we really love it here. I know it's a bit of a hike for you, but if you get a chance you should check out the fiber festival at the state fairgrounds in Raleigh when it comes again next year. It's a yarn and fiber lover's wonderland :)

  24. Love your Gemini
    Such a wonderful color. Love the way it's knitting up.
    It's going to be a sweet top to pop on. I think it's one that could be worn with jeans or when the occasion calls for dressy.
    Am thrilled to hear that your expectations are being fulfilled, Ivy
    hugs
