WIP Wednesday

Happy WIP Wednesday! I had quite the productive weekend - first, I finished the front piece for my Emmanuelle sweater. It's now blocking on my massage table in the craft room, though I probably won't get a chance to sit down and seam until next week.
I also finished the Mountain Moss Shawl from Pom Pom Quarterly - it's just about dry, so I'm hoping to get a few photos snapped in time for FO Friday! 
Don't you love my lace-blocking setup? I actually do have blocking mats, but I kind of prefer the CB2 box for some reason. 

Finally, I decided to bust out the Nova Cubics interchangeable tips to knit a few handspun hats - if I'm going to be spinning a bunch of yarn during Spinzilla, I'd better make some room in my overflowing handspun bin! Here's the hat I currently have in progress - the yarn is some merino I spun up earlier this year; it's a very dark grey with little bits of color here and there. I bought the fiber several years ago at The Yarn Barn in Lawrence, KS.
Speaking of Spinzilla, we've just introduced some really awesome new prizes which members of Team Louet will be eligible for, including a Fiber Prize pack valued at $400! Click here to read all about it on the Louet blog. I look forward to spinning with you next month!

  1. Gorgeous shawl! I love the colour. The jumper looks really nice too

  2. You did get a lot of knitting done! I love the colors of the chevrons on the sweater. This one is going on my to-knit list for sure. Also love the rich brown color of the handspun.
