Works in progress: February 12, 2014

For once, I’m sharing my WIPs on Wednesday. Quite an accomplishment. I’m still working on the Bridgette Skirt (project page) and I’m onto the fourth and final panel. All those intarsia polka dots are fun, but I don’t fancy having to weave in all those ends. But with this all this cold weather we’ve been having, at least my fears of it being too warm to wear the finished product are unfounded.

Polka dots!

I’ve also cast on for Bonny, another project from Tin Can Knits’ Handmade in the UK. After being so happy with my Windswept, I had to knit another project from the Collection. So far, just a few inches of Stockinette down, and about 8 to go. I’m working in Misti Alpaca Lace in the delicious Mojito colorway. It’s mostly greens with splashes of lavender and yellow. This yarn is going to knit up so soft and drapey, and this project is perfect for knitting group. I can talk all I want and not mess up. 🙂 I’m also going to attempt to do beading on the top lace portion, inspired by another project I saw.  Here’s my project page, in its not-so-exciting glory.
