WIP Wednesday: New Schtuff!

Now that the Cozy Memories Blanket is officially off the needles, I've allowed myself to start some fun new projects.

I couldn't resist starting the Wildflowers Cap from the first issue of Making magazine. I'm using two skeins of Naturally Nazareth from Kraemer Yarns, and even though I haven't dedicated much time to working on it, it's coming along fairly quickly - I'm halfway through the colorwork chart!
Since more babies are on their way this year, I figured I should get cracking on a little gift knitting. I picked up two skeins of Rowan pure wool worsted to knit the Easy Baby Sweater from More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts, but I'm making some mods so that I can have contrasting cuffs and button bands. Basically, I'm making it less easy, but I think it's going to be worth it!
I also got started on the second BFL sock, which will be my travel project, provided my arms continue to improve so that I can knit on them pain-free of course.
And my first spinning project for Week 2 of the Tour de Fleece is under way, I'm spinning some rolags I made on my Louet Blending Board that are a blend of shetland, merino, cashmere, alpaca, and other random bits and bobs of fiber.
That's it for this week, see you back here for FO Friday!
