Work-In-Progress Wednesday #18

It's been quite a while since I've participated in a WIP Wednesday! My dear friend Katy has been complaining about the lack of knitting content on this blog lately (so demanding! haha), so let's catch up with what I've got going on...

Festooned Joy:
BMFA Socks that Rock LW, colorway Comfort and Joy
I'm easing back into sock knitting with this simple pair of festive, waffle-knit socks. I modified the pattern to make it more to my liking and am just about ready to work the heel, if I can find a minute to focus on it.

Fierce Fracas Cuffs:
The Sanguine Gryphon Bugga, colorway Fierce Snake
This is a sadly belated x-mas gift for my mom, the only one I failed to finish. It is a set of Fracas cuffs from Hunter Hammersen's fun little Rabble Rousers collection of patterns. I think the Fracas cuffs and matching hat are my favorite from the book but all of the accessories are quite sassy and sweet.

Itty Bitty Baby Booties:
Cephalopod Yarns Skinny Bugga, colorway Blue Ringed Octopus
A good friend of mine is having a baby in a couple of weeks and I cannot wait! These little booties are getting me even more excited. I don't think there's anything more adorable than itty bitty footwear, except perhaps the tiny human it will eventually adorn.

Handspun Chai:
Cephalopod Yarns Bugga Fiber, colorway Yubaba
This is a handspun sample of one of my secret designs for the Afghans for Afghans e-book of patterns so I can't really show it all, but just look at the colors in that handspun! The way they shift and change is delightful, if I do say so myself. :)

Handspun Hat:
The Wacky Windmill, Merino wool handspun
This is just a simple, basic hat I started with some crazy cabled handspun yarn I finished on my wheel. I like the way it's knitting up, I just hope I have enough of the bits with the white mixed in to knit the whole top of the hat!

Alright, I think that's everything I've been busy with lately... Be sure to check out the other WIP Wednesday posts by clicking the image below.

  3. I'm so impressed by how you've matched your handspun with such a great project. I can never knit with mine because I'm just so attached to each skein, they are like my children, no pattern is good enough for them! You've also entered into the world of baby knits! How exciting!

    1. I like to knit with the handspun just to see what I've made... It is definitely difficult to find a good pattern, though, and often simpler is best (at least with my yarns so far).

  4. I love all of your projects right now. I am amazing at how you always seem to match colors and patterns perfectly. Once I am done with my hand spun I never know what to knit with it. I can't wait to see all of these done!

  5. The secret handspun project is lovely, and as is your hat. I am sure your mom is ok with waiting, those cuffs will totally be worth it :)
