Since we are in the WIP kind of mood, I'll share a little gander at my two projects on the front burner.

My project for the January's Loopy Monthly Mixer is coming along. I've gotten to the lace rows:



This month, we had to pick a pattern, yarn base, yarn color or fabric line that begins with a P. I picked the pattern Peipponen in Wollmeise's Pure base and it's a purple-ish color...it's a trifecta!

I'm also making the Copilot Cowl out of a skein of Alicia Goes Around's Marmalade (of Ponies) in a fun pink, purple and red colorway.



Both are coming right along.

MK out.
