Work-in-Progress Wednesday 68

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday and also Happy (day before) Thanksgiving to all of my US readers!!! We're heading to LA to spent the holiday with my family, and I can't wait. We haven't been there since September and we miss LA and my family desperately. It should be great, and I hope to visit a few yarn stores, including one of my all times favorites, Unwind in Burbank.

Just a quick note before I start with my WIPW portion of the post. For those interested, I will be posting Candy Skein Assortments, which are sets of mini skeins today on my site. I will have another post later today when they're for sale. :)

Okay, now to WIPW!

I don't have too much to share today, as I FINALLY finished the socks I've been slaving over. More from that on Friday (which weirdly I'll be writing the post today and scheduling it, so I apologize in advance if the scheduling doesn't work properly. Sometimes it doesn't put the post up when it should, so keep your fingers crossed).



What I did start was another Christmas present (I can't wait until it's over so I can work on something for myself! LOL). I'm making another Rebecca Danger monster, Bea the Basement monster, for one of my nieces. Her favorite colors are pink and light green, so despite these not being colors I'd pick, I think it will look cute and she'll (hopefully) love it! I'm using Plymouth Superwash DK, and love it so far. It's SOO soft and squishy, though a little splitty I must say.

That's it for me sadly! I'm still working on my Rhombi sweater, but Christmas knitting has now taken a priority over it. Someone asked me last week I think, about my skirt. That's on the back burners, but I will be working on it after I finish my sweater and a few other things. I'm hoping to have it in time for spring, which seems so far away but will probably be here before we know it.

Again, happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate. Drive safe if you're traveling and eat lots of turkey (or if you don't eat meat, enjoy the rest of the fixings!) I have to go make a gluten free pumpkin pie from scratch now!

For those that are new to WIPW, to share your WIPW post with us, just fill out the Mr. Linky below. Despite it saying you must comment, don't feel as if you do. That is something Mr. Linky automatically adds. I just ask you to check out a few of the links posted to see what everyone else is working on and comment there if you can.

  5. I've got that book and am planning to experiment with it in the New Year. I think the monster will be excellent in those colours. I can't wait to see her if you can show her to the world without giving the game away!
