Work in Progress Wednesday 170

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a good day and week. Yesterday I had a tooth filled at the dentist, which isn't much fun, but today I'm getting my hair cut! I'm super excited about it. It's been annoying me for a few months now and just need a new look. I can't wait!

As far as a work in progress, I've been working on my second Hogwarts Express shawl. I'm using the Candy Skein color of the month, Mulled Wine, and as mentioned last week, this one will be a gift. 

Sorry for the crappy picture. It's late at night and my phone wasn't focusing.

I haven't had much time to work on it, so it actually feels as if it's moving super fast, just as my first one. I just finished the math to place the owls, and this next row will be the first for the owls. I can't wait! So far I love how the colorway is knitting up and think it will look even better once I'm into the edging. 

I still haven't decided on eye/bead color yet. I have these square black matte and shiny beads that might be cool. I'm going to try them and if they aren't working, then off to the bead store for me. Do you have any ideas for eye/bead color? I'd love to hear your suggestions.

I want to apologize to everyone having issues lately in posting their links. I'm not sure what's going on, but have a ticket into the Mister Linky people. Hopefully we can figure out why some people can and others can't post their links. If you have issues, just post your link in the comments for the time being. Thanks for understanding!

That's it for me. I hope you all have a great rest of your week.

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.

  1. That colour is amazing even if you're unhappy with the photo!

  2. Very nice Yarn. Also, again I am not able to get my URL to post on this page. What can I do to get my blog on Your list ?

  3. Beautiful -- can't wait to see the owls in this colorway!!

  4. I love this colorway. WOW. I think I would do black for the eyes myself - it sounds very dramatic.

  5. What a pretty color for the shawl! Whoever receives it will be one happy person!
