WIP Wednesday!

We're back in Chicago and it's time to get back to my usual blogging and work schedule. There are two projects left over from 2012 to share on my first WIP Wednesday of 2013 - so far, I have resisted the urge to cast on for anything else!

I've made some major progress on the lacy mesh top I've been knitting with Shangri-La. While I was in Kansas City, I finished the first piece, undid the provisional cast-on at the start, and began the second piece from those stitches. On the train yesterday, I was able to complete the sleeves and decrease down to the body of the sweater. It won't be long til I'm totally done - I hope to be seaming and blocking by next week!

My second WIP was started on Christmas day and will definitely be a long-term project: I'm making the Panoramic Stole from Coastal Knits using a skein of Malabrigo Sock in Chocolate Amargo. I traded the yarn from a friend (check out her blog here) and was looking for a good project to put it to good use. I'll have to buy a second skein to finish the job, so I'm not sure if this counts as destash - but I'm excited to have a pretty wrap that will go with pretty much anything in my wardrobe.
