WIPs....just WIPs!

Though I am still spinning even though the Tour de Fleece ended this past Sunday, I wanted to focus back on knitting for today's post. I started a new project last Friday using some exciting yarn from Bijou Basin Ranch - one of several limited-edition colorways of Tibetan Dream yarn hand-dyed by Miss Babs, in fact! They are available online right now - or you can snag a skein or two at Stitches Midwest next month.
I'm knitting the Leonarda Shawl by Laura Chau, which is my project for the #KPChauKAL happening here on Ravelry. There are some pretty awesome prizes up for grabs, and any of Laura's neckwear patterns are eligible for this KAL (plus - there is a coupon code for your pattern purchase!). I have definitely been favoring this project because I need to have it done in time for Stitches (more on that later). It's already at that awkward-to-photograph stage, so I'm taking that to be a good sign that I am on track to meet this goal! 
The bird's eye view.
Since last Wednesday, I have also started another project: this one is a simple worsted-weight baby sweater in Spud & Chloe yarn. The Pint-Size Pullover pattern is from their new collection for baby's first year, and I think it lends itself well to customization; I plan on adding a second color to create a colorblock effect.
Lastly, I had set the Fine top aside for a bit, but have since picked it back up and made some exciting progress...it's now starting to look like something you could wear (if you were a small person, that is): 
That's it for this week, thanks for stopping by!
