WIP Wednesday - 1/16/2013

I only have three things OTN currently, and maybe there will be FOs to show soon.  Don't hold your breath, because I've been having issues...

I started the January socks on the 7th, and have not gotten past the ribbed cuff:


I've frogged back to the ribbing twice.  I don't know what the deal is, but doing socks TAAT while trying to follow a chart for a pattern that repeats every 26 rounds is too daunting at this time.  The pattern is Elderflower Wine.  I really like the pretty Plumberry Black Sheep Dyeworks Sock Weight.  My LSSK Secret Santa/Sister gave it to me in our swap this year.

The Loopy Ewe is holding their First Quarter Challenge currently.  The rules are to make a project that uses one skein of yarn and has cables in the design.  Since I am cold sheeping until DFW Fiber Fest, I shopped my stash and found a lone skein of Madelinetosh Tosh DK in Moorland, left over from a sweater that I made (scroll down).  


I chose to knit a Lava Flow Cowl. I can still participate in the challenge, because I am using yarn that TLE carries. 

I also have a scarf going:


It's the Party Lace Scarf.  I found some colorful beads that go with the Bollicine Sissi that I had in my stash. (Click on picture to make might be able to see the beads that are only on the beginning edge.)

What's on your needles?

MK out.

Without even trying the great enabler (MK)strikes again. Went to check out the pattern for Elderberry Wine socks - it is beautiful. Love her story about the mystery. So had to check out the Compline pattern, of course. And there I was, enabled by MK!
