WIP Wednesday: Socks & Single-Points

Now that Spinzilla is officially over and I have double-checked my yardage calculations to include the leftover singles from my plied yarns for a total of 3404 yards, I am returning to the projects which have been forlorn in my knitting corner for the past week.

Over the weekend, I finished the Chill Chaser sweater I had on the needles (spoiler alert for Friday!) and made some serious progress on my Chittery Chattery socks for various KALs which I'm participating in (more on those here).

I have only knit a few more rounds of my Wedge socks since last week's WIP Wednesday post, so it's probably not worth posting a photograph today. However, I did start something NEW as a reward for finishing a project over the weekend. For quite some time, I've been wanting to cast on for  Excelsior from the Holla Knits Home Collection, and the Sweatshop of Love Fall KAL which started at the beginning of this month is the perfect excuse! I'm using 3 colors of Spud & Chloe Fine from my stash: Orangutan, Goldfish and Ice Cream, and some Bamboo single-point needles from Knitter's Pride. Admittedly, straight needles are not normally my jam, but I am kind of enjoying the departure from the norm for this project. It doesn't look like much just yet, but I'm hoping it knits up quick: 

Also on my to-do list this week is to make sure that all of my new handspun skeins of yarn are properly entered into my Ravelry stash! 

How are you keeping it crafty this week?
