Work in Progress Wednesday....100
I don't have a ton to show you, as I finished my Trillian shawl and it's blocking now. I don't want to spoil FO Friday this week! I've decided I'm going to work on one project at a time as I finish them, as I have too many WIPWs and too many projects I want to start.
That being said, I am working on something! I don't know if you remember, but I pulled out my Abalone cardigan that started back at the end of February. I'm making it in SweetGeorgia worsted yarn in Oxblood (which is a deeper red then the picture above shows as this was out in the sunlight and blown out). I LOVE LOVE LOVE this yarn as it's just a gorgeous color and has a great ply. It's VERY stretchy and springy for a 100% merino, making a little hard to work with but still great. I thought I had a ton to go on this cardigan, but after working on it a little last night and measuring it, I only have about an inch to go before splitting off for the sleeves. This is a top down cardigan, so left will be the short sleeved arms, yoke (or top of the cardigan) and then the edging around the whole thing. I hope it flies off the needles as I can't wait to try it on! I have to say, I love top down raglan as you can try on as you go. This mystery with bottom up kinda sucks.
That's it for me today! Have a fun and safe 4th of July!
