WIP Wednesday

All right, I’m back!

I didn’t plan to take such a long break. We have been doing well, back to our old rhythm, but i just needed to get back into the habit of posting.

I’m so naughty.

So, while I get back into the grove, what better way to start than with a simple WIP Wednesday post, yes?

So, I am knitting a BFF Cowl, and this is the link I am going to be trading away. I really love the yarn. Love Malabrigo. Love love!

This is one of my favorite stitch patterns I have ever done. Look at the pretty seed pods!

I am reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman. It’s a special super long anniversary addition (but of course). This is one of my favorite books, but it has been a long time since I read it. Do it you guys.

I will be back tomorrow with pictures of the girls, sewing, and more knitting. It’s the ManicPixieDreamMom trifecta!

PS, that lurid green background is my couch, and I swear it is much nicer looking in person!

So, this sweater is finally starting to look like a sweater. I hope to have it done soon. It has been very enjoyable, but I may have promised that it be done by the weekend. While Cara is perhaps too young to hold me accountable for such things, Fiona is not. She is asking me every day if I am done!

Fiona has asked to read Alice and Wonderland, and I am quite enjoying myself. I have not read it since college. What a lovely book to revisit!

Still knitting my Lila[c]loud for Cara. I hope to have it done this week. As for what I am reading? It started out as Fiona’s latest obsession, but it turns out I have been reading my favorite Winne The Pooh stories to myself on my own. (I am, of course, fighting the urge to reread Harry Potter for the *mumblemumble* time)

I am also working on something else… oooh, so excited!

WIP Wednesday… and Tea Leaves!

A new project… and a new book! How exciting.

The sweater is Lila[c]loud and my ravelry page can be found here.

I am enjoying the pattern so far. Had a bit of frustration with the lace (all my own fault) but I am coming along nicely now.

The book is Organized Simplicity by Tsh Oxenreider. I have had this book for a few months, and I have leafed through it many times, but I am now going through the whole thing, using the checklists, trying to simplify. It is a very enjoyable read.

I also finally finished my Tiny Tea Leaves and Fiona just loves it. Technically I finished it last week, but I didn’t have time to post last week (read that as “didn’t have time to take cute pictures”) Fiona and I have picked out some adorable buttons on etsy, so I guess it isn’t finished until they arrive and I sew them on, but I count it as done.

So I am still working on my Tiny Tea Leaves and I have to get a move on, because I have not even started on Cara’s sweater and Spring is almost here! Oh my! I did set aside the sleeves, and have made significant progress on the body. It looks like a sweater now! This picture is a bit truer to color than the last one, but it is not quite so pink in real life. I will keep on with my quest for true color. I am linking up in the Yarn Along at Small Things

I am also still reading The Sweet Far Thing, and to be honest I am maybe 10 pages further in then I was last week. This is a very exciting update to be sure! As you can tel, my massive amounts of leisure time are allowing me to knit and read continuously…
