WIP Wednesday: Let's Just Start Everything RIGHT NOW.

My WIPS have multiplied! I went a little crazy and started several new projects since last week. First, I needed an easier on-the-go-project, so I grabbed some yarn from my stash and started a simple bias striped scarf...with lace weight yarn?! Clearly, it was a moment of insanity, but I really love the yarn - - Seraphim from Bijou Basin Ranch, a really soft angora with a hint of viscose.

Speaking of Bijou Basin Ranch, I have a new cowl pattern out this week which uses another one of their lovely yarns, a yak/bamboo blend called Lhasa Wilderness. Here's my KAL project which I started on Monday; there is plenty of time to join our KAL, and you can find more details here if you are so inclined.

The sock project I shared last week did indeed end up getting frogged so that I could knit a different type of heel. After much thought, I decided to cross something off of my knitting bucket list by trying out the Fish Lips Kiss heel, and I'm so glad I did! I think this is a heel I will revisit for future projects, most definitely.

I've finally made some visible/measurable progress on the project from Curls 2 that I (re)started last week!

I've also found time to work the Rockling Cardigan I started last week - it's kinda sorta starting to look like a sweater.

Last but not least, the handspun crochet blanket continues to grow:

That's it for this week, see you back here on Friday to see what I've finished!
