WIP Wednesday / Yarn Along

I must apologize for the extremely late entry today. I am usually up and ready long before. Today hubby was free, the weather wasn't that great so we ended up watching reruns of X-Files together. Was great :-D
So let me catch you up on my weeks' WIPs:
Last week, I had to rip out my cardigan for the KAL as I had a mistake. Then I managed to get back to where I had ripped out, read the pattern and found out I had once again made a mistake and had to pull out about 6.5 inches. That was it - so I frogged it! 
It is now waiting in a corner for me to start again. I am planning on starting it in another colour so it doesn't feel like the same project, will keep you posted.
I decided to knit a tank top to stay in the running with the KAL. I decided on this pattern.
So far it is coming along nicely. I am hoping I will be finished it early next week. This is how it looks so far:
I love the pattern, and it is so easy and growing so fast - love those kind of projects!
My crochet WIP: growing nicely. I am now busy with the back of Jas's vest. I love how crochet grows. I look forward to finishing it off soon.
On the E-Reader: Still got the "Game of Thrones" waiting. Haven't read a sentence this week :(
Good news: Tomorrow I finally start at a part-time job! It has been long enough and I can't wait to start work again!
Anyway, do come past tomorrow for Kitchen Krafts, I will have some yummy info on asparagus.
I will be sharing this over at:

  3. I understand your frogging frustration! I've had to do a bit of that this week as I am cleaning! But it does feel good to work on a project that is easy to udnerstand. That lacy tank top is cute!

      Yes, I think the tank top is just what I needed to recover so-to-speak :D

  4. Yikes, sorry about all that frogging!! I hope that the sitting-in-the-corner-for-a-bit will make the cardigan behave when you gather your resolve to pick it back up. :)

    I love your other projects, too---the vest is looking great, and the texture on that tank top is just lovely.

  5. Congratulations on your part time job, that is great news!
    But bummer about the cardigan - good idea to maybe start it in different colour.
    I absolutely love the look of the tank top
