WIP Wednesday: November 4, 2015

Sekret Knitting:

  • Still working on the first deadline project.  I've knit about 1/4 of it and started in on the second quarter.  That's my primary project right now.
  • I have the Annika sweater up to the point I'm ready to bind off for the front neckline and sleeves.  If I have bandwidth, I'll see if I can get that done this weekend, but I'm in the throes of a LOT of dyeing right now to get ready for the Kid N Ewe show in Texas next weekend, as well as finishing up some other custom orders.

I'm taking that with me to knit night tonight!  (And if any of my readers are interested, I'm hosting a KAL for Free Spirit Knits over in my Ravelry group from mid-November through the end of January 2016.  You pick the project from any of the ones in the book - so you can customize it to what you like best.)

And... I finished up the embroidery on the seam lines of the patches on the Bertie's Year - January this week, and just started the snowflakes.  I won't likely get anything done on this until I'm back from Texas, so this one will be on hold for a couple of weeks.
