WIP Wednesday

Hello knitters.

I hope this blog post finds you well. I am still "suffering" with startists. I love to cast on right now. Not sure why but hey, I will roll with it. Currently, I am working between 3 projects. The first is a sock with fun stripping yarn.

This yarn is Schoppel in the color way 2208. I love the various in the color. Having both variegated sections and solids is fun as well. Every stripe is something new and different. For this sock I decided to use SBA "How I make my socks" pattern with some slight deviations. I used size 2 needles and casted on less stitches.

 Above is another socks I just cast on. It is again the SBA pattern. However, this skein is a gift from a dear friend who dyed it herself. This skein is from Willow Pond Dye Works. She just restocked her Etsy Store, so head over there for fun Mother's Day ideas!! Above is the color way Sharpies and Highlighters.
Finally, I wanted to do something other than socks. My knitting partner in crime sent me this Craftsy pattern for us to work on together. I need to catch up to her so I cast on this yesterday and decided to try the edging. So far, I like how it is turning out and it is fun to knit something on bigger needles. I was working on this over lunch and my coworker was like, I just bought this kit too! Small world.

As for reading, I have been a bit behind. Usually I read murder mysteries but right now I am not feeling that so much. I am going to try the scifi classic Irobot. I cannot wait to see what everyone else has on the needles. I am linking up with Ginny today.


  1. I've got architexture on the needles too (although they are currently 'resting' in the closet!!!!)....nothing wrong with a good dose of 'startitis' every once in awhile!!!!

  2. Oh what great projects Desiree!! Love the that yarn ~ awesome colors.

  3. I'm diligently finishing projects, so I can START some more!! I'm excited about that. Your knitting is lovely :)

  4. That yarn is fabulous! I also have a knitting partner in crime - isn't it fun when you have something so great in common??

  5. Oh I have that too, I think it's nice to have a few options to work on though! A portable one, a couch one, a crochet one... :)
