WIP Wednesday: Progress on an Oldie but a Goodie

At Knitting Brew Crew last night I got to work on a project that has been waiting patiently for me to return to it for a while.IMG_4553

I finished up the first sleeve and sewed it in to the armhole, tried it on and immediately began the other sleeve. Obviously, this sleeve has not been blocked yet like the rest of the cardigan, I wanted to sew it on before I lost momentum on it AND I wanted to see how it fit into the armhole before I spent all the time and energy knitting the other one so that I would know what mods to make, if any.IMG_4555

I can’t wait to finally have this thing finished! I’m not working on anymore deadline projects until this one is completely done – hold me to that, folks. I hope to have it done by the end of June, it’s only one more sleeve, what could POSSIBLY happen? Amirite? (Or maybe I shouldn’t jinx it)

What are you working on this week? Long-overdue projects?  Quick stuff?  New and exciting things?

WIP Wednesday: New Project, New Year

As I mentioned yesterday, I do have a new project on the needles for myself since I finished my holiday knitting and also my work knitting (I love my job, have I mentioned that recently?).IMG_2563

This is the wonderful wonderful yarn from my trip to the Taos Wool Festival and the yarn itself is Dyed By Darryl from Your Daily Fiber in Fort Collins!  A great little happenstance there, I didn’t realize where the yarn was from until we were in the process of purchasing it.IMG_2557

I’m making the Atalanta sweater with some mods, namely I want the sweater to have fronts.  I’m making the medium size and added stitches to the CO so that I can have about 4 inches of front in lace on each side, then with the ribbing, I hope it’ll come close to closing.

Linking up with Tami, as always!  What are you working on this New Years?
