WIP Wednesday: Back to Knitting

It's been nice to get back to knitting after spending the better part of my free time spinning last week for Spinzilla (more on that later). I'd worked ahead on my 30 Day Sweater so that I wouldn't fall too far behind; while I'd like to be further ahead, I think it's doable to finish the body by October 19th, which is the catch-up day before starting the sleeves. It's certainly starting to look more sweater-y, don't you think?
I did manage to work on my KAL sock during Spinzilla, since it was a good project to take out of the house. Over the weekend, I finished the gusset shaping, so I should have a finished sock by the end of this weekend! Incidentally, it's not too late to join our KAL - there is even a yarny prize! 
Of course, I have a big 'ol pile of projects that need finishing work - ends woven in, buttons sewed on, and seams seamed. A few of these projects are top-secret baby gifts, but one also happens to be my Emmanuelle Sweater which has been sitting around, waiting for me to get the sweater finishing mojo. Hopefully this weekend I can make some headway on the ever-growing finishing pile! 
There's one more exciting bit of news for this week - my band is playing on WZRD 88.3 FM tomorrow night! You can get the details here on Facebook. This is our first proper show in over a year and we are excited to promote our new 7" singles which came out this year. If you aren't in the Chicago area, you can still listen online at; we'll be playing at 10pm CST!

Thanks for joining me this week! For more WIP Wednesday inspiration, visit the Tami's Amis Blog!
