WIPs Wednesday 6/4

Still working on the Dr. Who scarf.  I am at 25 stripes so far.  I was taking a picture of it and the hubby asked, "Are you done?" I responded with, "Almost halfway." 
It is too big to photograph on the table so my pictures from now on will be on my carpet.  I am almost to the point where I will have to climb on furniture to fit the whole scarf in the shot!

A few nights ago I binge watched Gossip Girl (thanks for introducing me to that wonderful show Jess!) and worked on my mitts.  They are feeling pretty snug, but I can still get them on my hand so I think that they will work.
So sad that I will not be keeping these mitts, I see another pair in my future.

I cast on a pair of socks today too, but since I am only three rows into the cuff I will wait and share the progress next week.

I finally got finished with the raglan increases on my Adrift cardigan!  Now I just need to knit the sleeves and I will be at the halfway point.  After that, just 10 more inches (ha!) of stockinette and then I will have a finished wool sweater just in time for a heat wave!

I started my June socks.  This month I am knitting Rainbow Explosion by Lauren McMordie.  I am using Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Slushie Facial.  The pattern is easy to follow, I love the textured panels on the side.  I just feel like my tension between knit and purl might be too loose so I don't think my rainbows look very rainbow-y compared to others that have been knit.  They are still neat looking though :D

We have a new contest up on the Ravelry group just in time for Tour de Fleece!  To celebrate our first ever TdF as Team Fiber Fangirls we are giving away a top whorl drop spindle and a sampler pack of Gourmet Stash punis!  To enter, just go to the thread in the Ravelry group and tell us what one of your spinning goals are.  The thread will close at midnight on 6/25 and the winner will be announced on the 26th.  


  1. Jen, those mitts are gorgeous! As a non-knitter I have what might be a silly question: does everybody work on multiple projects at a time? Is there a reason that you don't just focus on one thing until it's finished?

    1. Some people do just knit one thing at a time. I know for me (this is Jess) I tend to get bored very easily so I need a few projects to keep me entertained. Also, I like having a pair of socks started since they are portable. The sweater and blanket are a pain to carry around :)
