WIP Wednesday: February 18, 2015

Sekret Knitting:
  • I finished up (even blocked) shawl #1.  It's been off to the TE and now is in the hands of my test knitters. 
  • I finished the first sock of the pair and started the second.  This one will be my primary focus this week as I'd like to have it done in the next 10 days or so.

  • Shawl #2 is still on hold (and probably will be for a bit longer).
Personal Knitting:

The only personal thing I've got going right now are the Lopi mittens.  I've gotten the second one on the needles and I'm about halfway through.

Hoping to finish this second mitten up at some point this weekend.  Next up, I think I'm going to cast on for a fun new pattern, the Long Dark of Moria  socks designed by the talented Claire Ellen.  She used Wooly Wonka Arianrhod Sock, but I have an odd dye lot of Aerten Sock that I actually really like the colors in that I plan to use.
