WIP Wednesday 25.04.18

Current WIP count: 7

I cast on something new at the weekend, even though I hadn’t finished any of my current WIPs, but I don’t feel the least bit guilty. Everything I’m working on at the moment is either too big to travel or involves several yarn balls at once, so they’re just not portable. I have an hour-long lunch break at work; I need something to occupy myself for the 40 minutes left after I’ve eaten!

So I’ve cast on a Whimsy Cowl because this pattern has been sitting in my Ravelry queue for months.

The yarn is from Knitting In France, in the colour Sirene. I also have a gorgeous skein of purple, which I may or may not add on as a contrast colour, it depends how long the cowl is once I’ve used all three skeins of Sirene.

They’re all 100% alpaca and I am loving how soft and squishy the skeins feel, I’ve never used alpaca before so it’s pretty exciting for me.

Also, after a weekend of solid focus the Tunisian jumper is now just a bit longer than it was before I frogged it. Nothing but progress from here onward (hopefully)!

One good thing about this restart is that now each colour section is made of 13 rounds. 13 is my favourite number and I always try to work it into my makes somehow, so I’m happy it worked out naturally that way.

That’s what I’m working on this week, in between running outside every time the sun shines. Got to get that Vitamin D while I can. How is everyone’s week going? What are you working on right now? Let me know in the comments!
