WiP Wednesday: This-n-That

Lots of little going on around here.

Baby Surprise Jacket is just a few buttonhole rows away from finished. But who knows when I’ll pick it up again. It’s just not calling my name at the moment.

The Musique socks are getting a bit of air time. Watching the colors go by and enjoying the base yarn remind me of why I do as much as I can to support Roxanne at Zen Yarn Garden and her work. Love!

The minute I finished my CCS vest, I had an overwhelming urge to start another sweater. So I did!

It’s the Mondo Cable Pulli in The Fibre Company Terra. Wild Clary colorway. Loving it. And hoping it fits. I picked a size that’s a bit small, planning to shrink into it by the time it’s cool enough to wear it. I have 16 balls of yarn, and just started my third after picture taking.

Oh, and there’s another big WiP around here. We’re just about done with a really amazing stone mason working on our house. Spot re-pointing on the entire house. First time that’s been done on a 60-year-old house, so no too bad. He’s also re-setting the middle 80% of our front walk. This pic is from this morning when there were a very few stones left to fill back in. They’re all pointed now (that means there’s mortar between the stones) and they’ll finish up in the morning. It looks fantastic.

Oh, your front pathway is going to be awesome! I love stonework! Go you on the Pulli! I know I'll need to pick your brain when I start mine. :)

All kinds of wips at your house!

I am such a fan of Roxanne and her genius way with color. I don't have the same eye for color that she has but I sure love seeing what she does with yarn.

A sweater out of Terra? Me = jealous.
