Work-in-Progress Wednesday 45
Hi everyone! I hope you're having a great week. My week is okay...busy. As usual, I'm watching my nieces today, so won't be able to get to everyone's posts until later tonight or Thursday. This is going to be a short post, as I'm super tired only getting a few hours of sleep.
I've worked some on these socks. I'm love love loving the pattern! I think the colors are awesome, too. This is being knit in Knit Picks Felici Caprica.
As you can see, I haven't worked much on these. I'm working on the chart now though, so I have to actually concentrate. Remember, this is a test pattern, so no Ravelry page yet for it that I know of. I'm excited to see it grow. :) I'll have to figure out how to photograph it when it's worth seeing it. This orange is so bright it's impossible to get a picture of it.
This is new for WIPW! I'm working on my first cowl and using Malabrigo for the first time. It's the Pedestrian Crossing Cowl. Alea and I decided to have a little KAL together. It's a fun knit which is nice, but since it's just two rows until the end, it may get a little boring. :) I love love love Malabrigo. I have two skeins of this, and the cowl will only take one, so I think I'll probably make a hat or gloves when it gets closer to winter with the other skein.
For those that are new to WIPW, to share your WIPW post with us, just fill out the Mr. Linky below. Despite it saying you must comment, don't feel as if you do. That is something Mr. Linky automatically adds. I just ask you to check out a few of the links posted to see what everyone else is working on and comment there if you can. Everyone loves feedback and a little encouragement on their projects! Also, please link back to this post in your post to get the word out! The more the merrier!
Please remember to use the new link to your post from this week, overriding the one that Mr. Linky saves from the previous. Thanks!

I love that orange yarn. It reminds me of orange crush in a serious way. Love the look of your knitpicks socks too. Very cool.ReplyDelete
Sorry for the "slightly more hockey than knitting focused" post that I linked in. After tonight, one way or the other, things will finally get back to normal.
The circle socks are looking really cool :) I may have to queue that pattern myself!ReplyDelete
The circle socks look great, I have them in my queue but not got round to them yet, might have to boost them up a bitReplyDelete
I LOVE those circle socks - gorgeous!!!! The Malabrigo is indeed a very delicious colour.ReplyDelete
Enjoy the rest of your week. xxx
I love the socks. I made a hat using a circle pattern and it was very tactile. Love the malabrigo - I've never seen the multi colourways. xxReplyDelete
All the colors you've got going right now are gorgeous, I can't pick which I like best. Can't wait to see them as they progress!ReplyDelete
I love the blues of the knit picks yarn - the pattern really shows off the colorway! Wow - that orange is bright - I know how the camera tends to mute colors so it must be eye popping in person! What? A cowl??? No third sock?? Hahahaha - it's looking very lovely!!ReplyDelete
Your socks are gorgeous! I love the Circle sock. The colors are lovely.Your cowl is beautiful too. I really like the yarn and pattern.ReplyDelete
Love, love, love the colors in the cowl, those are my colors!!ReplyDelete
Love the cowl pattern and the yarn is beautiful.ReplyDelete
All your wips are looking really good! Can't wait to see those first pair of socks! The colours and the pattern look great!ReplyDelete
What great socks, and you've picked wonderful colours, I always like your colours (I like the yarn you dye as well). We can get knitpicks here now!!! I bought some palette!!! Of course you can't get chroma fingering and that is the one I want. Never mind ;-).ReplyDelete
I am so in love with that orange yarn!ReplyDelete
what pretty yarn, everything looks lovely. Wish I could start lots of projects but I just can't seem to do it. I'm a one project kinda girlReplyDelete
Wow, love the circle socks! I'm dying to make a pair!ReplyDelete
Ooh so many projects! The socks are going to be fantastic :D And isn't Malabrigo to die for?ReplyDelete
Love Love LOVE Malabrigo!!!!! WHat lovely colors you choose!ReplyDelete
If you'll need any test knitters, let me know. :)ReplyDelete
All of your WIP colors are yummy! What a visual treat to work on your projects.ReplyDelete
I love the colorway on the Knit Picks yarn. What color is it?ReplyDelete
(And WOW - I just came back to check up on the links posted after mine and there are FIFTY links already!!! Getting bigger all the time - how fantastic! )ReplyDelete
I love the pattern on the top of the pucks and canucks sock... I may have to steal that for a scarf... Hmmm...ReplyDelete
I love the colours you are using for your socks! Looking good :)ReplyDelete
Can anyone else view no 34 - Vanessa? I keep getting an error message and did last week to on her link? Maybe its just me but thought I'd let Vanessa know in case there is an errorReplyDelete
The texture on those circle socks is fascinating! Love the colours, too, I can't wait to see what a finished sock looks like. :DReplyDelete
And yay for cowls! I have to make one sometime, I like the idea of them...but not until winter! I've had enough knit/crochet-wear for a while. The pattern you're using looks really intriguing, and I think it's going to work beautifully in that yarn.
I love how the Knit Picks yarn is turning out with that pattern! It really shows off the colors well.ReplyDelete
I really love that orange yarn as well, and I completely know what you mean by it's too bright to get a picture of :P I have that problem a lot since I love bright colors^^
Thank you so so much for all the kind comments everyone!!!!ReplyDelete
I've fixed Vanessa's link, so please try it again!!!
Pretty!!!!! I'm doing a little on my sampler shawl right now.ReplyDelete
Hey Tami. We are all ok here. Heartbroken over the loss of course but more upset over a bunch of idiots who need to make chaos and ruin a great season for us all.ReplyDelete
I got word that your yarn arrived yesterday. Canada Post is on strike so the mail is very slow in coming. I`ll be home on Friday to see it : )
thanks so much for your concern
Nikki, so glad to hear. Thanks for letting me know. So sorry about the loss, and the ugliness in the city. I love the city of Vancouver, so it just pains me to watch the live footage on CTV. So glad to hear your yarn arrived!ReplyDelete
I'm here, late and very tired. I love your socks and your cowl. You've really made great progress with your knitting.ReplyDelete
Everything's so pretty -- you have my all-time favorite Malabrigo colorway here!ReplyDelete
I love the mustard and purple coloured yarn!ReplyDelete
