Work in Progress Wednesday 101

Hi everyone!! I hope all is well in your neck of the woods. I've been busy with work and also we're re-furnishing our living room/dining room which is fun but a bit of work! We've decided on Mid Century Modern and found an awesome buffet/sideboard Teak table from 1955 that will be delivered Thursday. I'll be spending all today cleaning and moving out/rearranging furniture as it is 6 feet long! I'm super excited.

That said, I've been working away on a new project and an old one! I don't have a picture of the old one (the Abalone cardigan) unfortunately, but I'm pretty close to finishing it! I just need to finish one short sleeve and pick up the edging/knit it. The body and one arm is totally finished.



You may have seen my post last week about the new colorway added to the permanent collection, Rainbow Fruit Chews. I knew I had to knit it up right away, as it was calling my name. You can't get much more fun than this colorway. Right now, I have it dyed in Yummy fingering (though I do plan to add it to all yarn bases) so I knew I wanted to make a shawl or socks. Before starting another pair of socks, I need to finish a bunch I have on the go, so I chose the shawl.


Since I had so much fun with my Trillian, I decided to try another of her designs, the Hitchhiker! I LOVE LOVE LOVE how this yarn is knitting up! It just makes me want to keep knitting on and I will say, I must make socks out of it next. It's just so happy! I can't wait to see how it changes as the shawl gets bigger!

That's about it for me today! Tomorrow I will be posting a new set of Candy Skein minis, so check back then! Also, I started a Twitter account for Candy Skein! Be sure to follow for all updates/news/contests/KAL/CALs at @candyskein
