WIP Wednesday: Only 2 Projects?!

Amazingly enough, I did finish my Breezy Bolero by the end of the weekend; it is currently blocking and awaiting buttons! Consequently,  I only have two projects on the needles at the moment, plus I'm in between crochet projects.

The first WIP is a pair of socks that I haven't blogged about in a while, as they went on the backburner for a bit. They are my own design (which will be out at some point this summer - as soon as I can manage things) and I'm knitting them with some beautiful hand-dyed sock yarn from Fleece Artist.
My second WIP is a pair of thrummed mittens from Marly Bird's Craftsy Class, which I blogged about earlier this week. It's probably a weird time of year to start knitting what's sure to be the warmest pair of mittens I'll ever own, but that's just how things go sometimes. Thrummed mittens have been on my mental to-knit list for a few months, and I really could have used some super-warm mittens these past few months. Alas, now that winter is on its way out I am ready to thrum it up. I guess it's never too early to be prepared for next winter!

Thanks for stopping by this week. For more WIP Wednesday inspiration, visit the Tami's Amis Blog!

  1. wow! Just 2 projects?
    I have 2 WIPs now too, but tonight I will have 3 and tomorrow 4! Rs...
    I usually to knit winter pieces in summer to wear them in winter, this works!
    Here we do not have snow, so I never will knit a pair of thrummed mittens, but I love them!

    1. I know, I kind of couldn't believe it myself. It didn't feel right, so I ended up starting a hat Wednesday night!

      I think I'm on board with winter knitting in the summertime...there are a few sweaters I'd like to have in my fall wardrobe!

      Thanks for stopping by!
