WIP Wednesday!

It's been a while since I've shared what's on my needles - and with so many finished projects of late, that means that I've started just as many new ones!

My colorwork craze continues with Ysolda Teague's Hendreary Hat in Bijou Bliss:
I also started a new pair of socks using some yarn I recently scored via Craftsy's Daily Deals - the pattern is hot off the press from Cookie A's new design collection. I couldn't resist the simplicity of the Lateral Socks. What better way to show off the gradient colorway of my yarn choice?
Finally, my Rockefeller Shawl is chugging along. Yes, it's been several weeks since the completion of the WestKnits 2012 Mystery KAl, but I have been struck with Second Side Syndrome, apparently. I've officially moved this project to "slow-burner status" (i.e., it's the project I pick up when feeding the cats in the morning and evening), and it will be done...eventually.

Still haven't gotten your fill of WIPs? Head over to Tami's Amis to see what other folks are knitting and crocheting this week!


  1. Hey, I didn't even know there was such a thing as second side syndrome. Just as well I'm not much of a shawl knitter because I'd catch that for sure!

    I am strongly regretting clicking the link to Cookie A.'s new patterns. I think I may need to make some lateral socks too! Can't wait to see how yours knit up with that yarn!

  2. I never knew second side syndrome was a thing, either - but it's like pulling teeth for the Rockefeller! I'm definitely giving shawl-knitting a break after this one.

    So glad I could enable you with some fun new patterns from Cookie A's collection. So far I am loving how the Lateral Socks are knitting up! Hoping to make some serious progress this weekend.
