WIP Wednesday

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a WIP Wednesday. I am closing in on finishing 2 projects. I am excited about that for sure. I need to invoke my 10 minute knitting rule…especially on this sweater. It hurts my hands at this point to knit the sleeves. But I’m so close. I have to finish it.

Modified Ursa Sweater made with 100% 3ply mohair

And the Conflagration scarf is within 1 or 2 more repeats and I can bind off.

What’s next? A new shawl. I can see it in my head. But I have to get it on paper, pick the yarn and cast on.

What’s on your needles? Reply to this blog and let me know…or better yet, send a photo!

curated skeins for your next shawl

At shows and even here on the studio tours that we do, I hear people saying that they have a hard time picking out skeins for larger, multiple skein projects like a shawl or a sweater. That is part of what I love about my job. I have an entire room of color and it is so much fun to pull together skeins. Here are a few of the trios that I pulled together today. You can shop for your own curated skeins by clicking here
