Work-in-Progress Wednesday 54
Hi everyone! I hope you're getting through your Wednesday with your sanity intact. I'll be watching my nieces today, so won't have too much time to comment on yours posts, but all of your comments here are greatly appreciated. This coming weekend is a big one in my household, as it's Tiki Oasis! It's a tiki convention in our own city, which is awesome since we don't have to travel to go! It's a 3 1/2 day event (starts Thursday night at the local tiki restaurant/bar) and ends Sunday. There will be tons of music, symposiums, a marketplace and more! It's a blast and I think I'll even get some knitting time in. My husband is participating in a few classes/symposiums that I won't be. I'm so excited. :)
Now on to WIPW!
I finished one of the socks I was working on, so you'll get to see that Friday. I know, kind of cheating since it's only 50% of the project finished, but a finished sock is a finished sock in my book.
Remember the shawl I was knitting for the Candy Skein KAL? Yeah, well, I frogged it. It just wasn't speaking to me and I just couldn't get the pattern down right. I was working on Dane, but decided to do Little Shells instead. It's coming along great. I just started it Monday evening, so I don't have much, and it's just the boring stockinette part. I'm using the same yarn, Delicious fingering in Blueberry Sorbet and still loving it. For those of you wondering, it also frogged beautifully.
I'm also still working on my skirt. I'm almost finished with the second pleat and loving it still. I haven't had a chance to work on it, since I was finishing the sock and starting the new shawl, but it's such an easy pattern I'll be able to take it with me this weekend. For those asking what yarn it is, I'm using Knit Picks Stroll Tonal in colorway Thunderhead.
Well, that's it for me today! I hope you have a great rest of the week, and I'll see you all on Friday!
