WIP Wednesday: Secrets & Sweaters

Last night I got back home to Chicago after spending the weekend in Kansas City. I'd found a last-minute Megabus fare and surprised my mom for her birthday, which was on Monday of this week. The trip was about 10 hours each way, and I'm sure you can take a wild guess as to how I spent most of that time! I packed one WIP and yarn/patterns for two other projects; I returned home with two FO's and one brand-new WIP! 

I can't give out too many details of this current WIP since it's a holiday gift, but I don't have anything else to share this week, so here goes: this mystery project is being knit with some Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted in Satsuma....and that is pretty much all I can say on the subject. 

Starting next week, I will happen to have a shareable WIP, since I'll be casting on for the 30-Day Sweater Challenge KAL beginning on October 1. I hope you'll join me, because it will be a really fun event that will involve a TON of great prizes, not to mention the fact that you'll have an awesome and wearable sweater at the end of it! If you click here to download the free sweater-planning guide, you'll get everything you need to plan your sweater from start to finish, from choosing your yarn to gauging, taking measurements, and more.  It also includes some handy tips for successful sweater-making from folks in the industry....including yours truly!
Hey, that's me!
