Work-in-Progress Wednesday 82


Hi everyone! I hope you're having a good week. I have been busy busy busy! I haven't gotten much knitting time done, but when I have, I've worked on the sweater...WHICH I FINISHED!!!!!!!!! I'm hoping it will be blocked (and dry of course) by Thursday night, but if not, you will get a picture of it on Friday on the blocking mats. LOL



That said, I did have time to cast on a new sock. That's right...a new sock. I'm so original! It's my March Harry Potter sock with my knitting group. This time we're going to be doing Devil Snare Socks. I cast on a little early, because I was so excited about the Candy Skein March colorway, Leprechaun Lollipop, and it is perfect for this pattern! We decided to go with this pattern this month because it was a lot different than the other HP sock patterns by Erica Lueder. It has a lace pattern running down the front of the sock, and the rest is stockinette. We'll see how it goes. :)

Other than that, I have nothing to show. I'm going to start swatching for my next cardigan, the Abalone, today! I can't wait. I bought the yarn for it on Thanksgiving weekend and it's just been sitting in my stash waiting to become a beautiful sweater!

That's it for me. Have a great day!

  16. This is only my second time participating in your WIP Wednesdays, but I really am glad I started. I love finding new blogs to look at and see all the wonderful stuff that people are making! Thanks again

    And that is a LOVELY shade of green. Seriously. I plan to try to learn to knit when I get home from this deployment.
