So for this Wednesday, I have a few things to share.
I've been working on my shawl, but haven't had too much time to knit recently. I've had a bit of work to get done, seeing as I'll be gone for a week. I LOVE how this is knitting up! It's the Rainbow Fruit Chews colorway of Candy Skein Yummy fingering and the pattern is the Hitchhiker. I have this on the trip with me, so hopefully the next time you see it, it will be finished (maybe not blocked, but finished)!
I know this is just yarn, pattern and needles, but it will be the start of the Featherweight Cardigan! I'm so excited to start it. I'm using yarn I got in Oregon. It's Baby Alpaca and Silk. I plan to do 4 rows of the dark teal and 2 rows of the light blue. I hope to cast on my trip and I figured it is a perfect travel knitting sweater since it's super easy!
That's it from me today. I hope you all have a great day!

I love the Fruit Chews colors!ReplyDelete
I am loving those colours! May have to grab myself a skein soon :DReplyDelete
Wow, your Hitchhiker is progressing lovely! Great colours! I started watching the movie last night and I will be knitting it too very soon :-)ReplyDelete
I love the colours of your shawl! It looks fantastic!! You inspire me to get more colour into my work!ReplyDelete
How do you wind your balls. They look perfect others than mine. :-(ReplyDelete
With a swift and ball winder. I then take from the outside instead of pulling from the inside. You do have to realize though, I get a LOT of practice with my swift and ball winder with Candy Skein, sometimes 100s of skeins in a month!Delete
The shawl is fantastic. The yarn is gorgeous and so suits the design of the shawl. Have a great time in Wisconsin.ReplyDelete
Very pretty shawl. I am sure you are going to have a blast with hubby. I can totally relate to not seeing your other half, my hubby is working like a madman as well. Oh well as long as they enjoy what they are doingReplyDelete
Love your shawl! Hope you will have a great time in Wisconsin!ReplyDelete
I'm loving how that shawl is coming up! Super beautiful!ReplyDelete
Have a safe trip! The colors for your sweater are beautiful.ReplyDelete
That shawl still looks great. Sounds like the travel will give you a chance to get a bit more done. ;)ReplyDelete
Alpaca and Silk ooooh I am drooling.ReplyDelete

Your Hitchhiker is gorgeous...that's my WIP this week too :)ReplyDelete
The Hitchiker is going to be awesome!ReplyDelete
Awwwww, my brother lives in WI.... I miss him! Love the color way and especially the shawl!ReplyDelete
The Hitchhiker is looking good....ReplyDelete
I just ordered my first yarn from you...Blackberry...I'm going to use it for a shawl
Thank you! I sent it out on Monday! I hope you enjoy it! :)Delete
Love the colors of the shawl :)ReplyDelete
I literally just moved from the Madison area to California. I hope you were prepared for the heat. It was awful before we left.ReplyDelete
OH! Do you know what yarn shops are a must while I'm there? We're staying in downtown, but have a rental car. We're also probably going to The House on the Rock on Saturday so heading that way, and probably meeting his parents in Lake Geneva on Sunday! Email me at email@example.com if you have any recommendations (or fabric stores/good restaurants)!Delete
I love WI! Did you like living there?
LOVE the shawl, trying to remember what pattern you are using. Have a fun and safe tripReplyDelete
Thanks Sandy. It says up above but just didn't link it. It's the Hitchhiker.Delete
Omigosh, that yarn for your Featherweight is GORGEOUS!!!ReplyDelete
Ooh I think the Featherweight will look awesome in those stripes! My mom (also a knitter) has knit one and is almost done with her second with plans and yarn to knit at least one more. It's a great pattern!ReplyDelete
WOW, that's nuts! Glad to hear it's a good pattern. I hear it's a bit boring though. LOLDelete
Thanks everyone for your awesome comments!ReplyDelete
