WIP Wednesday: November 4, 2015
- 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.
Personal Knitting: Hey! I have something! I decided to cast on a Mesa Verde Shawl in a darker colorway using some (ancient) stash Rowan Scottish Tweed. I picked a dark heathery chocolate brown with flecks of blue and yellow and a dusty mid-range blue. I've knit 2 of the repeats so far and it looks like:
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.
