WiP it Good

As I’m sure you guys have noticed, I’ve been in “finish stuff mode” for a while now. This means there isn’t a whole lot on the needles at the moment.

Just two things, actually. And I finished quilty stuff, so I’m not exactly mid-project down in the basement right now either.

Up first is a boring little sock toe that’s looked exactly like this for two weeks.

Garter toe!

I cast on at Hurricane Knitters on “third Wednesday,” and have since finished two Everlasting Bagstoppers and a few quilty things. This has gotten next to no time. In no small part because this yarn is crocking and turning my fingers purple when I knit with it.

In other news, I’d been carrying around a project bag full of Sublime Organic Cotton since shortly after my niece was born in April. Inspired by Michelle’s shop sample (Ravelry Link), I have a cotton Tulip sweater on the needles (for my niece).

Rockin’ the applied I-cord!

So that’s what’s shakin' here. We have a special Fifth Wednesday edition of the Hurricane Knitters this fine evening, then it’ll be a scramble to get ready to go to the Lake for vacation next weekend. More finished projects to come!

I love the colors of that sock toe. Vibrant. The Tulip is sweet! And someday I'm going to learn applied i-cord. Just haven't gotten to it yet. Oh, wait. If I ever finish my linen ruffle tank, it's supposed to have applied i-cord! Just keep knitting...

The sweater is so cute! I think I'm going to have to knit one, finally.

Oh no fifth Wednesday! Does that mean that we lose you for Fridays until the planets realign again? :) BTW, totally love the Tulip.
