WIP Wednesday: August 12, 2015
Here's what I'm working on this week:
- I'm in the home stretch of the Mina Jacket I'm working up for Spirit Trail Fibers. I'm finishing up the shaping on the second sleeve cap, and then I just have the front bands to do (still waiting on buttons). The rest of the garment is put together and just needs a block to be done then.
- I started the cardigan I'm designing for Bare Naked Wools using their Stone Soup fingering weight. I started the first sleeve and that's about two-thirds finished. This will be my main focus project now for the next couple of weeks.
- I had a project accepted for an Interweave Press compilation book, so I've got the yarn for that dyed and I'll work on charting and a pattern draft this week as well.
Personal Knitting: Since I'm heading off to vend at the Salida Fiber Festival the second weekend in September, I wanted to get a show sample knit up in one of my new gradiant colorways. This is "Hollyhocks" and I'm knitting up the free 3S Shawl pattern by Amy Meade. This is a simple garter stitch and eyelet shawl that's an elongated triangular shape and takes about 1 skein of fingering weight yarn. Simple, fun and hopefully a quick knit.
