WIP Wednesday: Projects for ME!

Now that my holiday gift knitting is complete, I've started a few projects for myself. The first is something that has been in my queue for a while now: Robots vs. Downtown. I'm using a skein each of ShiBui Sock in Peacock and Wasabi - one of my favorite color combinations!
I'd like to knit myself more colorwork mittens as a general rule (especially since I already have some really excellent books), and I had already picked out some yarn from my stash to make these mittens. I purchased the pattern back in November when it was on sale as part of the Indie Designer Gift-Along. Though I didn't end up participating, I really liked the concept and hope they do the event again this year so I can actually take part this time!
My other WIP is a sweater I started over the weekend using Canopy Fingering from the Fibre Company. I'm using the 30-Day Sweater framework to design it as I go; I'm not sure if it will actually be done in 30 days, but I am looking forward to having a sweater that is designed to my exact specifications. As you can see, I'm not terribly far along, but I hope to have a much more exciting photo to share next week.

Thanks for joining me this week! For more WIP Wednesday inspiration, visit the Tami's Amis Blog!
