Work in Progress Wednesday 99
Today is actually my 5th wedding anniversary so I wanted to say happy anniversary to my husband! We're going out to dinner to celebrate tonight! It should be a great time.
Now to WIPW (can you believe we're at number 99???)
I've been working exclusively on a new project you have yet to see! Yes, with all of my WIPs, I decided to start another one. I hang my head in shame, but I have a good excuse!! I'm participating in the Yarniacs Podcast's KAL. The requirements are to use fingering weight yarn and start after June 15th. The KAL goes until August 31st. You can get all the details on their Ravelry group!
So, I had to start a new fingering weight project to qualify and a good friend of mine had just finished her Trillian. I fell in love with it and since I've had the pattern in my queue for a very long time, I decided to give it a go. It's a fun, fast pattern. Though it's simple, it's not too boring but it is kind of mindless if that makes sense. I had to curl it a little to get the whole thing in the picture but it's kind of a crescent shape. I have a little over half the skein left, and you just work until you use the whole thing (leaving 7% of the skein for the finishing border).
As mentioned above, the pattern is Trillian and I'm using Candy Skein Yummy fingering in Lemongrass Sour. I LOVE LOVE LOVE how this is knitting up and am so glad I decided to use it for this project. I think I'm going to dye another skein for myself before the end of June to make socks as well. The colorway is just so fun and cheerful! Don't forget, if you were thinking of grabbing a skein of the colorway, July 1st it will be gone forever!
That's it for me today. I hope you have a great rest of the week!
