WiP Wednesday

Hi everyone!  Yes, I’m still here! 🙂  I can’t believe it’s been a month since I posted last – so sorry!

The Charlotte Knitting Guild had it’s retreat in Hickory, NC this last weekend.  Our instructor for the weekend was Candace Eisner Strick, and she was a wealth of knowledge – I learned a lot over the weekend.  Plus it was so much fun!  

I did buy some Miss Babs yarn at the retreat, and I bought Candace’s new sock book (she autographed it for me, too!)

Not sure what I’ll make with the yarn, possibly a two color shawl or socks – I love these two skeins together.

On to what’s on my needles…

I just finished one pair of socks (I’ll show you those Friday), but I have another pair of socks on the needles right now (of course):

These are just generic cuff-down short row heel socks – the yarn is Collinette Jitterbug in the Monet colorway and the heels (and the toes eventually) will be done in the Velvet Plum colorway.

My fair isle socks are kind of at a stand still-

-because I’ve had another project taking my time these last few weeks – it’s a gift, so I won’t be able to show you until I know the recipient has gotten it, but I should be able to show you soon.

That’s all that’s on my needles right now, other than a couple things I’m designing, and some lace-weight yarn on the spinning wheel.  I have a feeling I’ll get the itch to start a new project soon, though, probably something lace. 😉

So, that’s it for today.  I’ll do my best to show you those finished socks on Friday, too!

Happy Knitting, and be sure to swing by Tami’s Amis for some more WiP Wednesday posts!
