Work-in-Progress Wednesday 76
Hi all! I hope you had a great weekend. I had a great time with my knitting group on Saturday. We traveled to Long Beach (about an hour and a half drive) to go to the Alamitos Bay Yarn Company to see the Unique Sheep Truck Show. It was so awesome to see all of the yarn sets, as well as the gorgeous shawls made from it. I didn't want to spend too much money while I was there, so I decided not to buy any Unique Sheep, but I did buy one skein of Lorna's Lace Shepard Sock. I couldn't resist. Last time we were there, I had wanted a skein, but had spent so much money at the fiber festival we had gone to beforehand, I didn't want to splurge too much. This time, that's all I bought, but I'm super happy with my purchase. I'll take a pic of it later so you can see how pretty it is. :)
Now on to WIPW!
I haven't been working on the socks, because I am now determined to finish my Rhombi sweater. I am LOVING the way it fits. I have about another inch to do on the body, before then working a garter stitch bottom for about another inch. After, I'll move onto the sleeves and finally the collar. I can't WAIT to get it finished. Doesn't it look pretty good? For those of you who are new to WIPW since I last worked on this, I'm using Candy Skein Delicious yarn in Brain Freeze. What I love about this sweater (at least right now) is that it will be warm enough (it's REALLY warm yarn) if I wear a long sleeved shirt under it for the mild winter days, but perfect for spring and chilly summer nights.
That's it for me this week. Hopefully I'll be finished with it in the next few weeks to share on FO Friday!
