WIP Wednesday: All New Projects!

Over the weekend, I finished all of my WIPS, so this week I have all new projects to show off this week! My friend Julie was in town, so we made a trip up to Windy Knitty for a little stash enhancement. I finally picked up two skeins of Freia Flux, which I've been wanting to try out for a while now, and immediately cast on for a simple cowl to show off the hand-dyed gradient colors:
I also cast on for another pair of socks using a test color (I think!) of Baah! La Jolla; they are a pattern from my back catalog that I will be updating once these new socks are finished. I was never happy with the photographs of this design, which is based on a vintage stitch; the pattern could use some gussying-up as well, so later this summer there will be a re-launch for my Scalloped Ribs sock pattern (and anyone who has already purchased this pattern will of course get a free upgrade!).
Finally, the new issue of Pom Pom Quarterly arrived in the mail last Thursday - I was impressed with how quickly it arrived from England, I think I placed my order at the beginning of last week! I started swatching for the Fieldwork Cardigan over the weekend using the Sincere Sheep Tenacious Sock in St. Bart's that just arrived. I am so in love with this pattern and yarn!
Thanks for stopping by this week. For more WIP Wednesday inspiration, visit the Tami's Amis Blog!
