WiP Wed…Thursday

I swear, I took these pictures yesterday and just didn’t get around to writing the blog post.

There has been a good chunk of knitting on the Swirl. Aside from having one knot in each skein (so far) of Rustic, I’ve been happy with the knit so far. Fortunately, Rustic is a quick and easy spit-splice.


When I took this picture, I was on Welt #10. Now I’m about to start #13. Here’s a slight zoom on Wednesday’s progress.


I’ve also had a good sized sewing project percolating this week. It’s fun, and now I need to sit down and start sewing. Zoom.

(Yes. The fabric is a little bit blurred. Yay Photoshop.)

One final note. Four years ago today, this happened. Hugh is coaching the U.S. Women’s volleyball team this quad. Earlier today, they won their semifinal to advance to the gold medal match. I hope they bring home gold.

WiP Wednesday

The last week was lots of finishing. Finished Color Affection. Finished my bagstopper to the point where I ran out of yarn. I know I have leftovers around here somewhere. I’ll finish that bag when I find them. But, that freed up my needles for a new project:


It’s my second Swirl sweater. This one is Shades of Gray in the now-discontinued Cascade Rustic. It’s an interesting wool-linen blend. So far my biggest issue has been some underspun sections and the fact that it’s throwing a pretty good amount of lint.

There has also been some weaving time, but it wasn’t picture-worthy since it looks the same, just with more fabric on the front beam. Bo-ring!
