WIP Wednesday

Thank goodness for knitting.

I found an extremely cute pattern on another blog a few weeks back and my heart skipped a beat.  Caffeine Girl posted her new project Quicksilver. Thankfully, I had most of the yarn necessary in my stash. I decided to try Madeline Tosh Light and Malbrigo yarns together. (Yes, my truck repairs are paid off thank goodness, I was a good girl). At The Knitting Tree, the sales person told me the base yarn is the exact same therefore only the colors vary. I went with the colors white, gray and a blue. (Sorry I left the tags in my truck and I do not know the exact colors!)

 I love how the project is coming along. However, I have to be good. My friend is only 5 weeks away from her due date and I need to finish the baby blanket! Hopefully, this Friday you will see a blog post of a finished baby blanket! 
My husband and I rarely exchange gifts. We are on a budget like most and just find our time together is more valuable then items. He knows how much I adore Sherlock the tv series and knitting and therefore decided I could not live without this special skein of Into the Whirl sock yarn, 221B colorway. I am so excited to cast on. This yarn is so soft and simply elegant. I am trying to find the perfect sock pattern for skein so I can wear socks and watch Sherlock!! I am thrilled just thinking about it!
 I started a new novel this week, Parched. It is a SciFi book about mystical creatures and vampires. I am not sure why but I love vampire love stories. Yes, my reading habits are similar to a 13 year old girl but its fun and I find it so relaxing so please don't judge me too harshly.
I cannot wait to see what is on everyone's needles today! I am linking up with Ginny!


  1. Wow - Way to go husband! That yarn is amazing! My husband got me two bags of Lindt Lindor Dark Chocolate truffles for V-day. He has good taste as well. :)

  2. That Sherlock yarn is to die for!

  3. That Sherlock yarn is to die for!

  4. You are putting me to shame! You are farther on that shawl than I am. It takes more concentration than I've had lately. But I do want to get back to it.
    I have no interest in vampire books, but there's no judgment. Reading that makes you happy is all good!

  5. I love your shawl WIP. Beautiful colours, especially the blue you're using

  6. "the goodness of knitting" Indeed!!! Love your knitting, I'm off to check out that pattern and if you're loving a book who cares what it is about!!
