WIP Wednesday: the one where I knit sh**

With the cooler weather whistling away outside, I have the annual feeling to nest.  Curling up in a cosy sweater with the knitting needles is just the thing!  So I have been knitting up a storm of late.

So far: 4 finished knit objects.  But all for gifts, so you will have to wait for the reveals.  I love this rainbow stack of yarn colours!


Currently on the needles (and aren't they cool needles??):  a Herringbone Cowl for me.  Love this pattern by Purl Soho. And the Madelinetosh chunky in Cove is divine!




On deck: a sweater in this pattern for The Middle Child in this luscious purple yarn by Malabrigo.


As for sewing, I have an optimistic (and likely unrealistic) list of handmade Christmas gifts I plan to make.  Quilting wise, I am in the midst of assembling my Linky Love quilt top....love it!  Grateful I have Tracey's pattern as a road map....lots of little pieces in this one, so it is good to just turn off my brain and rely on her excellent instructions.


Sharing over at WIP Wednesday.

there are comfy couches and a cozy fireplace for knitting at retreat if you get tired of sewing! Those knits don't look like sh*t at all!

Knit on, sister! It's still 80 degrees here. I'm not ready yet. But I haven't touched my sewing machine all week! Not good for the Christmas productivity.

You crazy knitting lady. That's a ton of things you have on the go and it all looks amazing.

You always seem to find the most lovely yarns.
