Work In Progress Wednesday Number 38
This week's picture is one of those that doesn't look wildly different from last week - Shalom is longer (and easier to photograph!) but not impressively so. The sock is longer, but not in a way that is all that noticeable.
However there are 2 key differences... The lack of fuzzy mohair indicates that the ballet sweater is finished *grins* Well, I still need to attach the ties, but it'll be ready for a reveal on Friday. Finally ;)
And there is a new project at the front, a pair of mitts. This is actually the second of the pair, I flew through the first one while I was procrastinating about knitting the ties for the ballet sweater *laughs* The pattern is Treads, which has a lovely stitch pattern accent around the wrist and the top of the hand.
The yarn is a lot more teal than that in real life, but no matter what I did the camera just wouldn't pick it up. It's the Debbie Bliss Fez that the lovely Laura sent me, in case I wanted to use it as a contrast colour for the grey version I bought. I think I have decided what to do with the grey, which doesn't need a contrast, so I get to use the gorgeous teal for something else *grins*
After the cold weather snap, I wanted some more mitts, and this yarn is so cosy and soft. Even better, I've found a way to link the pattern into a Nerd Wars challenge *grins*
I feel like there is less knitting progress than usual to show you, but this might have something to do with that:
As ever, if you want more lovely knitting and reading content, head to Tami's and Ginny's *smiles* And if you're a regular, check out my post yesterday for an awesome giveaway!
