Last week I had a very busy WIP picture, having had a bit of a casting on frenzy... This week, I have had a bit of a finishing frenzy instead *laughs* So, the scarf, hat and swap cowl are all done. I'll be posting about the hat on Friday, as it's the one I am most proud of ;)
You may wonder if this means I have cast on more projects to replace them. It's a fair assumption *laughs* But no, I have been working on the 3 WIPs I still have, showing remarkable restraint!
You can see that I have dragged the fuzzy ballet sweater out of hibernation finally. I stopped knitting it last year because I was focusing on Christmas presents, but as I only need to finish the sleeves and seam it together, it seemed a waste to leave it hanging around!
My Princess Unicorn sock now has a heel. And a much more sensible shape than my last pair of socks *laughs* See...?!
My Shalom cardigan has passed the twisted rib yoke and is ready to divide for the sleeves. I'm making it in a particularly cheap and cheerful yarn, 80% acrylic/20% wool. Similar to the one I used for my hooded cardigan. I forgot how much I actually really like this yarn. It's surprisingly soft, knits up nicely and is very easy to work with and care for. It's certainly not the most luxurious, but great for a cardigan that I hope will get a lot of wear.
As for the book - I am reading "The Raw Shark Texts". I picked it up from the library, based entirely on the title and the cover *laughs* I'm not far into it yet, but it seems interesting and a bit different.
As ever, if you want more lovely knitting and reading content, head to Tami's and Ginny's *smiles* And this week I am also linking up at Frontier Dreams for Keep Calm Crafting On.
