WIP Wednesday

Hello Knitters.

I hope your Wednesday is filled with holiday joy and excitement.

OK... Please do not judge me. I think every knitter does it, at least once. I started 2 new projects and I have not finished a single on already one my needles. I was just so excited to cast on with such pretty yarn. We have all been there, I am sure of it!
A sweet coworker and friend of mine is expecting. We all know that means baby blanket knitting. I cast on the baby blanket by Drops Design. I am not very good at understanding Drops Designs patterns and my friend found this raverly project which rewrote the pattern and made it much easier to understand.
I am 5 repeats into the first section and I am in love. I might even make this blanket for my son who is 4. It is just beautiful. My best knitting buddy, already knitted this blanket. Her knitted blanket is the most stunning and beautiful blanket ever, I am not exaggerating. Check it out here. I hope someday to have have the talent this amazing women has.
Currently, I have a lot of socks on needles. I love knitting socks but I need something with instant gratification. I decided to cast on  the Squish-Squash Cable Hat by Tar3820.  It's cold here in Wisconsin and I cannot wait to wear my hat in the winter!
I am reading I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. I am about half way and it is a very interesting and fun read. The prospective is wonderful and very uplifting. While reading it, you experience the beauty around you and appreciate the little things that are so often over looked. I usually read fiction, scifi books but I am glad I read this one as well.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your holiday! I joined Ginny today.
