I'm only down to 1 WIP this week!  I guess that means I better start something else!!

Circle Socks - Not much progress from last week...but now that I'm done with the purple sweater I can focus on these.  I really like the pattern on these and they seem to knit put pretty quickly. 


What are you working on this week?

Looking good, sarahj2001! I love the colors!

I haven't knit in FOREVER, but I AM in the process of reorganizing my craft room since we moved. I should snag a photo and upload it...

... here we go:



That's almost 10 wall feet of yarn... and that's not even all of it. :/

Anyway.  Playing with yarn, organizing it and fondling it just makes me realize how much I miss knitting. Smiley

The closest to a WIP I have is this blanket for Sprout:



Several weeks ago and it hasn't changed, at all.  In my defense, I just found the skein I wanted to use next, so once I get it wound into a ball, maybe I'll find some time to work on this more.  I'd really love to be able to finish it!

Oh my goodness!  I'm jealous of all that yarn and your organization!  It looks like a yarn shop.

I wanted to learn some new knitting skills, and come on, a bias knit tie is just too cute!

I dyed the ecru yarn with some red dye leftover from a tie-dyed tank top, and I LOVE the cute stripy effect! I'm pretty proud of it, despite the tension problems, because I had to learn make 1, slip stitch, and purl 2 together.

And holy camoley, Lapoli, are you sure you aren't the yarn shop??? Tongue

@Alexus It looks great! I also love the red stripiness.

And I concur with everything everyone's said about Lapoli's stash!

Not sure if it's worth posting a pic since it looks terribly boring, but this is what I'm working on this week:


A grey hat!  Cheesy

I was off at a convention so there was no progress on either the sweater or the shrug because I deemed them too large to awkward to drag around Pittsburgh and the convention center.

So I crocheted a hat and started these socks:



I have decided this yarn just makes fugly socks.  Cheesy

What kind of convention, Tephra?

I just started work on a sweater for my new pup, Martika, lol. No picture yet, as I only have about 3 inches knitted so far. I normally just waited for great sales or won my boys' sweaters in photo contests, but now that I knit, I figured I'd make her a nice sweater. If it works out well, I'll make some for the boys, too.

AnthroCon, one of the two largest furry cons here in the US. Peter S. Beagle is an absolutely charming man, and he has a wonderful singing voice.  Grin
