WIP Wednesday: Fun with Stashbusting

The arm is ever-so-slowly getting better, but I am still working with limited time that can be spent knitting on any given day. I am trying to chip away at the various sock projects I have going, but since I can only spend about 30 minutes working on a sock project each day, that makes for some glacial progress. I did manage to hit a milestone on Tyler's Royals Socks, however - I put in the bright green waste yarn for the afterthought heel.
Last weekend, I also finished some non-sock projects, which I decided was a great opportunity to cast on for some DK and worsted-weight projects. The first is using this skein of Powder River yarn from Mountain Meadow Wool; I cast on for the Merope Mitts using my favorite DPNs, Marblz.
Next, I started an Astrid Hat with a skein of a new yarn called Naturally Nazareth, which will be debuting at TNNA next month from Kraemer Yarns. I'll be sharing more about this yarn once I finish this hat, but for now, I can tell you that I am really enjoying working with it!
In case you're wondering, I was recently sent a copy of the book which contains both of these patterns, Cozy Stash-Busting Knits by Jen Lucas. It was tough to resist immediate stash-busting, as you can see! I'll be sharing a more official review of this book soon, but I can tell you that I'm already enjoying this book and have added many of its patterns to my Ravelry queue!
