WIP Wednesday :)

It's that time again.......WIP Wednesday.

Unfortunately, I cannot show you one of my WIPs because it's a Super Seeeeeeeeekrit Swap Project. Once it's been received, I'll post the FO on an FO Friday. Probably not this week...maybe next week. Just sayin'. I will tell you this about it: it's Doctor Who related (as it's for a Doctor Who swap), it's being worked on US #8 needles, and the yarn is a yellow color. I'm not telling you anything about yarn content, if I'm working on straights, circulars, or DPNs, or linking to any particular pattern (if there even is a pattern). I could but I don't know if my swap partner has been stalking my blog and I want to surprise her. 

Because of my Super Seeeeeeeeekrit Swap Project, I haven't exactly been working on anything else. I did work a couple more rounds on my Honey Badger Don't Give a Shit Socks but there's nothing exciting there so I haven't bothered to photograph it. I've also briefly worked on Mama's Vanilla Socks but, again, nothing really "new" to report...perhaps when I get to the heel I'll take a new photograph to share. I've finished the first pattern repeat of my Lothlorien Hat but I don't know if I'm allowed to share in-progress photos of this as it's a test knit for someone. I'll have to ask her...

In the "lost WIPs" category, I've found my Baby Traveling Vines Socks when I was cleaning in the bedroom on Monday. They were in one of my (several) knitting bags...actually right alongside my Icarus Shawl. Once my swap projects are finished, I'll probably finish the sock, write the pattern properly, send it out to test knitters (for baby and adult sizes), and call it good. Or something. Maybe I should finish the Lothlorien Hat first...

Anyway, that's what's been going on in my knitting world. Little Man is getting his first haircut this morning at 10:40am and I'm not ready. He's going to lose all his little curls and I'm going to be sad about it. But, really, his hair is too gets into his eyes. What really sealed the deal was on Sunday morning when a lady in a restaurant in Madison didn't know if he was a boy or a girl.

  1. I think finding the projects is the first step to working on them, so that counts as progress. Though I am intrigued by the super seekrit swap, anything Dr who theme is good by me! And good luck for little man's haircut, I hope he doesn't mind it and that they don't cut off ALL his hair!

  2. I'm intrigued by the Dr. Who project!
    Chuckled at the Honey Badger name project. It's so fierce.
    Oh wow, first haircut; save some of those curls. I hate it when stupid ppl assume about a baby's gender. I remember my cousin had her daughter in a blue denim jumper and these dumb ladies thought she was a boy as my nieces and nephews are all bald when they're born.
    You should have him wear a tee or hat that says, "I'm a boy, stupid."

  3. Probably best to check with the designer before sharing any details of a test knit :) Good luck with the haircut!

  4. I'm curious about the secret Dr. Who project - I'm looking forward to seeing it!

    It's rough when working on a gift project when the recipient might read my blog. I want to share the progress, but I have to keep it under wraps. When I start on Christmas presents and have to wait until next January to post what I made.... phew, that'll be tough.
