WIP Wednesday: Old & New

Over the weekend, I cast on for the Marin Shawl by Ysolda Teague, which is the only big project left on my gift knitting list. I'm using some lovely sock yarn from Hazel Knits and my Karbonz interchangeables. So far, it's knitting up fairly quickly, considering it's a pay-attention/stay-at-home project due to the amount of charts involved.
Here is a progress shot of my Mystery KAL cowl project - today the third and final clue is released, so I'll be able to share this again on Friday as a FO, with any luck!

What's conspicuously missing is my crocheted socks - or perhaps they weren't conspicuously missing til I pointed it out?! At any rate, after much debate over the weekend, I decided to frog them. It wasn't an issue with the pattern - it was easy to follow and I gained a lot of new skills in the process! I just wasn't loving the yarn/pattern combination, and coupled with the issue of fitting my absurdly small feet, I decided this was the best option.

Hopefully I can revisit this pattern (and crocheted socks in general) sometime soon, but for now, I need to focus on holiday crafting. To that end, I'll be joining the FreshStitches Snowman CAL that's starting tomorrow as well as finishing up my final two designs for 2013. Stay tuned!

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


  1. I have some stash yarn set aside for the Marin Shawl, too. Such a pretty color that you are using. It is a deceptively simple looking pattern in that there is a lot to keep track of. The cowl is looking lovely.

    1. Thanks! I have a feeling I'll be making another Marin shawl since the one I'm currently working on will be a holiday gift. I am so in love with this pattern!
