WIPs: A Sweater; A Sock; A Plan

Untitled UntitledUntitled Untitled

First off, thank you for your kind words and well-wishes on our house news! It been so wonderful to read your lovely comments, especially after long days of scrubbing, painting, and moving. You guys are the best. <3

But back to knitting! In between everything else going on, I've been trying to focus on just a few knitting projects at a time: sneaking in a few gusset decreases on a plain but sprinkle-tastic pair of socks in Knitted Wit Victory Sock here; knocking out a few rows of my long-suffering Custom Fit blouse there.

Last, I've been scheming a new project to get on my needles: a Robin shawl by Lee Meredith, using butter yellow, soft grey, and neon pink stash yarns - Shibui Sock, Baah! La Jolla, and Tosh Sock, to be precise. I think the weight and twist on these yarns will play very nicely together, and I've already sketched out a few different color variations and hit upon one I really like.

Now, I just need to finish something...! With a studio to finish painting and a whole house to move, I'll have plenty of time for that, right?

Happy Friday, friends!

Glad to see you're still fitting some knitting in! I absolutely love your color palette for the Robin shawl-that's going to be so much fun :)

By the way... I have included your site link on my blog (crookedneedles.net) - as I love your site... I love your color choices and your knitting style.
Also, best of luck in your new home, which looks like it was kept up so well. I would think a home from 1925 would have a lot of cool character.
