Anyway, WIP Wednesday...what do I have going on?
|Choose Your Own Adventure Dishcloth (links to Project Page)|
First up is what I have dubbed the Choose Your Own Adventure Dishcloth. It's nothing fancy and there's no pattern; I'm making things up as I go. I'm using US #8 (5 mm) needles and some unknown cotton, most likely Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton. I've had it quite awhile...from when I first attempted knitting almost a decade ago. It's been sitting around ever since. I've slowly been working my way through it...and I think it's all been dishcloths. Oh well. That's what I like to use cotton for :)

Next up is my Baby Surprise Jacket. I'm using Araucania Ruca Solid in Periwinkle. It's 100% plant fiber, specifically sugarcane. I'm still working on the decreases that are in the beginning so I've got quite a bit to go but it's coming along...I should probably spend some time working on it again soon. I'm using US #6 circulars (4 mm), by the way. I'm not making this for anyone in particular so I'm in no rush to finish it.
|Greyson Sweater (links to Project Page)|
Lastly, for this post, we have the Greyson Sweater. I'm currently in a state of....pause. I've finished the body (and the color looks much closer to reality in this photo than from the last WIP Wednesday I participated in). It's still coming out too orange but it's better. Anyway, I'm at the point where I pick up and knit the sleeves. I have a pair of DPNs on loan from Angela (of KnitLuck) because I didn't have the right size for some reason...so I should get going on this soon. It probably won't take me that long to do the sleeves but we'll see. I tried this on Little Man, in this current state, and it came down almost to his knees. I suppose that's good since I'm making the 4T size and he's wearing anything from 18M-3T (depends on the company). The yarn is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran and I'm using US #7 (4.5 mm) and US #5 (3.75 mm) needles. The body is done with the #7s and the ribbing is done with the #5s.
That's all I have as far as WIPs go. I wanted to photograph and show you my Traveling Vines Socks but, you know, I'm still working on the design process...and if I want to publish them somewhere, I may get in trouble for showing you. ::sigh::
I'm linking up with Tami :)
I have a few more posts that should come up this week...if I can get them together (like my yarn review, photos from Monterey Bay, and maybe something else I'll sneak in).
I hope you're all having a lovely day :)
