WIP Wednesday: January 21, 2015

Sekret Knitting:
  • Sadly, although I was moving along thru the final chart on the laceweight project, I was unhappy with the motif placement on it.  So I decided to rip back to the beginning of that section (which is a WHOLE lotta knitting).  I think I'm back on track with this one, but definitely in negative yardage, so to speak.

I did get to the two-thirds point on the border - this week the plan is to get those final border rows completed, and then next week, I'll work on the edging/bind-off and finish this project up!

Once I finish Hecate up, I think I'm going to cast on the Shelburne Mittens.  I'm in the mood for a fairly quick project and these are knit with bulky yarn.  I am planning on using some handspun for these, which I think will be fun, bright and cheery with this fairly simple pattern.
