WIP Wednesday: June 10, 2015

For the last week, I’ve spent my crafting time working on the two test knits that I cast on last Wednesday.  Both projects traveled to Indiana and back.  On the way there, I knit on the shawl.  On the way home, I knit on the scarf.  I worked on them while I sat in Stacy’s office on Friday.  I worked on them as we drove to and from the Hoosier Hills Fiber Festival.  I’ve made great progress on both projects, and hope to finish both this weekend.

Sand Tracks Scarf

I love this project.  I love the yarn.  I love the pattern.  All the love!  I’m about 1/3 of the way into the second ball.

Raindrops on Roses Shawl

I’ve finished the first of three lace repeats.  I’m probably halfway through the shawl at this point.

I’ve gotten a lot of crafting done this week!

Cormo

Last Friday, I spent several hours spinning the Cormo while at a demo.  I started a new bobbin at the beginning of the event.  Here’s how it looked at the end of the event:

Raindrops on Roses Shawl

I joined the Testing Pool group on Ravelry and signed up to do two test knits.  This is one of them.  It’s a top down shawl, stockinette with a lace border.  I’ve finished perhaps 1/4 of the stockinette section.

Sand Tracks Scarf

This is the second test knit.  It is a cabled scarf on a seed stitch background.  I’ve finished the garter stitch border and the first pattern repeat.  I think I’m really going to love this project.
