WIP Wenesday

Hello knitters. I am too excited and wanted to post my new project now. My knitting buddy treated me to a skein of lovely Opal Sock Yarn. I first saw this yarn on Susan B. Anderson's blog.
I also finished up my hat just in time for the cold weather to hit in Madison, WI. This hat pattern is squish-squash cable hat by Tar3820. I love it. I added an additional 8 stitches and doubled the length of the ribbing section. 
Last night I finished I capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. The last 75 pages were brilliant.  I was expecting the book to end with either two scenarios and it completely took a different turn. I felt sad that the novel was over but I loved it. Next up is the Silkworm, the sequel to the Cuckoo's Calling. Hopefully, it will be as good as the first!

Happy WIP Wednesday! I joined Ginny today.


  1. Your new sock yarn is very pretty!
    Being sad a book is over is always a good sighn, isn't it? And so is being taken completly by surprise about the finishing pages!

    1. Thanks!! I am excited to know the end of the book though!!

  2. What gorgeous sock yarn! Such beautiful colors.

  3. That opal sock yarn is beautiful. Nothing better than a book you are sad to finish, you must have really enjoyed it. I have to tell you I love your header photo, gorgeous yarn and a delicious looking coffee.
