WIP wednesday

I seem to have quite a few (for me atleast) wips at presentso thought i'd let you allknow how they are coming along (or not)
My main project at the moment - and set become an FO anytime soon is wicked. I just love this and have had such fun knitting it. I choose to omit the pocket and decided on 3/4 length sleeves. I love the fit and the colour and hope to finish the last sleeve tonight.

Of course I have a sock otn, this is the latest from the 6 sox kal. It uses slip stitch technique. I am using Posh Yarns Lucia 4ply (wool/cashmere blend) in Highland Mist with Angel Yarns Sock Yarn in Choco Plum for the contrast.

For Xmas I knitted my Mum a mulit-directional scarf in Twilleys Freedom Spirit and a colleague of hers has asked me to make one for her. I am aiming to get this finished by next weekend when I next see my Mum (hopefully once wicked is finished I can work on this)

I also knitted a Forest Canopy Shawl for my Mum for Xmas and really enjoyed it. After seeing Piglottie's version made from Rowan tweed 4ply I raided my stash and found some Rowanspun 4ply and cast on.

One of my resolution was to learn to do some colourwork. For Xmas I received the yarn and needles to make Corazon. I finally plucked up the courage and cast on. I haven't done much yet but I'm slowly learning

Love the pink and white yarn. Can't wait to see your finished projects.


I like your colorwork. That's one of the things I'm trying to tackle this year too.

Great assortment of WIPs!

Such beautiful things! I love both pairs of socks, and your colour work looks perfect. Your Forest Canopy is looking lovely too - I'm hoping to cast on another one for my mum's Mother's Day gift.
