WiP Wednesday

The Swirl is finished. Completely and totally, ends woven, seams sewn, finished. But it really deserves a good photo shoot, so you’re going to have to be patient for that FO post.

Meanwhile…

I love having a good mindless project on the go. I’ll get back to those socks that have been dormant for far too long, but right now it’s still my cowl that’s getting time when I want to knit without paying much attention.

It’s still growing, which is good. The last skein of Blue Sky has been joined, so I’m half expecting this to be finished by this time next week.

In other news…

I’ve had seven skeins of Noro Kogarashi in the house for most of this year. It’s finally in progress. I felt like I had to get this going now, or I’ll be jumping right in on Swirl #2 by the end of the week. I think it’s a good thing to do a traditional sweater between the finished Swirl and the second Swirl. And yes, I’ll guarantee that there will be another Swirl.

Oh, and I'm working out of Barbara Walker's Knitting from the Top for the first time. It takes a few brain cells, but it's worth it.

And finally …

If the remainder of my day goes as planned, this warp will get tied on this afternoon and I’ll be weaving by the end of the day. The tentative plan is to weave off this warp, then do another cleaning/organization of this room before I get moving on the next project.

It is fantastic to have a more flexible schedule after last week’s craziness. I got everything done last week, but it’s nice to have a slightly more relaxed week to follow the crazy.

I love the color of the koigu. It's gorgeous. an the cowl looks really long, or am I looking at it funny?

I like that yarn you're using for the cowl. It's always good to have something mindless to work on.

OMG, I'm in envy of that loom!!
