WIP Wednesday

Hello again! Today I've got two projects I'm equally enamored with, so I'm going to be working on both of them.
One is the Ski Sweater:
Because it is bulky weight yarn and the patterns are so fun, this is a very speedy knit. After I finish the second sleeve, I'm going to pick up and knit all the hems (in red!). After that it will probably go into hibernation for as long as it takes to figure out how to sew a straight line with that sewing machine I don't have....
So I'm hoping to get a few more sleeve patterns in today.

The other thing I want to work on is the scarf I started yesterday.

I found the video for this stitch pattern here and immediately wrote down the pattern and cast on. I really like it because it's reversible. The WS rows are relaxing, though, because you just knit the knits and purl the purls.
Still, because of its lacy nature, I'm probably only going to work on it when Vyvyan sleeps. (IF Vyvyan sleeps; the last few days he's refused to nap.)

I'm also going to be avoiding casting on Tiny Owl Knits' new pattern, which I bought immediately and have sworn not to cast on until after the Ski Sweater is done.
That's it for me, this week.

  1. I think you are wise to reward yourself for completing a project with starting another one :).

  2. The ski sweater looks fantastic, but it sure looks like a lot of work to me! Won't it be great when you finish it? I'd reward myself with something new and fun for sure!

  3. The ski sweater is unbelievably gorgeous! I don't know how you can say that it's a fast knit? I think I would barely be two inches in from when you began it. <3

  4. The Ski Sweater looks awesome. Love all the different motifs. I wasn't aware until now of that new pattern by Tiny Owl Knits. Gorgeous!
