- The first Heroines Club shawl is done, off the needles and through testing and tech editing. That'll release on January 1, 2016.
- I've bumped a small DK-weight set up to the top of the list since it has a very short deadline. That's for a fall 2016 publication. I'm about 25% of the way through the knitting on that and hoping to be pretty close to having the samples done at this time next week.
- Still plugging along on the large Fair Isle project - I've opted to push that date out a bit for the finalized sample as I've gotten enough knit to calculate out all my grading and get that ready to send for testing/tech editing. I'm working on that as I have time.
- I've gotten charting and preliminary numbers done for another Fair Isle project - I've wound yarn and that'll go on the needles today to double-check gauge and plot out any changes I need to make for that.

WIP Wednesday: December 16, 2015
Sekret Knitting: And lots of it.
Personal Knitting: Believe it or not, I'm working on socks - I've got a secondary sneak colorway of my new Self-Striping Socks on the needles. I've knit sock #1 to the point I'm ready to shape the toe. Once I get that one off the needles, I'll put the February Colors of New Mexico skein on and be sure I'm happy with the colorway progression. I'm finding a sort of zen-like meditation in knitting stockinette stitch in the round watching the colors stripe. It's a good way to rest my brain and not have to really think about my knitting and just enjoy it!
