Well, my WIPs aren't much further along than they were last week.  Eep!  (It's been a crazy week).  I'd love to see what you guys are working on though to get me moving on them!

Cheesy

So what do you have on your needles?

Yikes! How could I forget that it's Wednesday!?!  That's twice now in a row.. I'm glad you have a better head on your shoulders, Kaz!

I finished up two pretty large projects this past week but I can't share until they get to their swap recipient. In the meantime, I'm continuing to work on the washcloths for the staff @ the birthing center.. I'm a little over halfway finished! Maybe I'll be able to get an action shot of them later. Smiley

Woo hoo, my first WIP Wednesday post!! So I finished with the main part of the swap I was doing and now I'm working on the baby shower portion of it.  This doesn't really totally give away what the item is, but it is a pretty straightforward top down raglan baby sweater.  I'm about to start the sleeves and I've got a provisional cast on at the neckline for something extra at the top  Wink  Whoever came up with the top down raglan construction is a freakin' genius.  I love these things!! I can't tell you which yarn I'm using, because I have no idea.  It was some unknown acrylics (did ye old burn test) that my mother in law gave me that she had lying around.  Anyway here we go:

The only reason I remember is because my socks are looking at me reproachfully from the back of my couch, lapoli! Cheesy

striker923 - what a great sweater!  I've never done a top-down raglan before, but I may have to.  I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Thanks! To be honest, I don't have another "type" of sweater experience at all, like set in sleeves, saddle shoulders, etc.  But knitting top down in one piece is just so gratifying!  While I have knit a vest flat and seamed it up, the top down raglan is done when you are done knitting! It's great! If you know of any babies or children, try it on something like that first because not only should it give you the experience, but also the quickness of baby knits Smiley

A little late, but here's the BSJ that I'm still working on - one or 2 more rows and I'll be done with the sweater and then I'm adding a hood -



Striker - that's going to be an adorable sweater! Smiley

Thanks! I got most of finished today, just have to add something to the neckline Smiley
Yours is looking great! I can't wait to see what it looks like with the hood.  The yarn is really working well for you in this project!
