Okay, I know it’s actually Thursday, so sue me. This is the second installment of my work in progress Wednesday, so let’s see whats on the needles. What I’ve mostly been working on this last month is my Moyen Age sweater. I’m nearly to the point of separating for the sleeves, and I think once I do the rest of the sweater will go by really quickly. The cable pattern is just gorgeous and I’m so excited to be able to wear it. When I first started knitting Moyen Age I wasn’t too sure about the color, I love yellow, but mustard is not a color that exists in my wardrobe. But the more I’ve knit with it the more that I like it, I think it’s actually going to be a pretty good color on me. [Yarn: Shibui Knits Staccato]
I also started a pair of socks, I want to have a simple pair of socks going at all time, in addition to the ones at work. I grabbed some random sock yarn from my stash, which I think is some old Knit Picks Stroll. This is just a simple ribbed toe-up pattern I’m making up as I go.
My work socks are going pretty well too, the first one is nearly finished, but I haven’t been working on it that much. I probably should remember to work on it more, because it definitely keeps me more focused when I’m reading.
The fingerless gloves I’m knitting out of my handspun haven’t really been worked on either, but I’ve definitely got more time until it’s a reasonable temperature to not have three pairs of of mittens on.
And speaking of handspun, I’ve been doing a lot of spinning recently, I’ve finished spinning up the Malabrigo, and all that’s left is to do is skein it and wash it. The Full Moon Farm’s Fabulous Fibers is also finished spinning, but I’m planning on doing a three ply with it, partly just because I’ve never done a three ply before that wasn’t a chain ply.
Of course I still have the lace shirt for my sister and the the Stalagmite socks on the needles, but I haven’t worked on them since last WIP Wednesday, so I won’t bother you with the exact same pictures. I’ve been realizing lately that I’m in need of a larger variety of scarves and cowls, so you can bet that next month you’ll probably be seeing a lot of that.
