Windy Wednesdays

WIP Wednesday

We are back from our gorgeous holiday in the sun!
And with that my batteries have been fully charged and I am ready to start with some new projects. 
Maybe just one or two or maybe three :D

Yes, I can't really decide what to start with now that I have nothing (well, I still have hubbys' pullover hibernating and it needs to get somewhere soon) on my needles, so I have decided to start a couple of new projects at once!

What helped me make this decision is that I upon arriving back in cold Switzerland, the knitter in me started to panic as I became acutely aware that I have all of these outstanding wintry projects that I had hoped to have completed way before the cold weather appeared!

So here is a run down of the projects that I will be stating over the next couple of days.

Jas Basque hat


This is one of the caps for Jas for winter. I can wait to cast this one on later today :)

Juliana for me


This project may take a while to get going as I realized with a bit of shock that I have to swatch for this one - DREAD! I so do not appreciate swatching but it looks like it needs to be done as the Baby Merino, although also a sport weight doesn't look like it can be knit on bigger needles, so I will be needing to work this one out which is quite a bummer as I am a very lazy knitter and do not like to have to figure my project out before starting. I like to cast on and knit!

How do you feel about swatching?
Do you swatch before each project?

Drops Big Fabel


Kay liked her Bob Marley Slouch so much she has asked me for another one for the upcoming season and as it was so much fun the first time around I am happy to oblige. 

Reading wise: I have just finished The Kite Runner and am will be starting the next book in my Goodreads Challenge:



I need to get reading as I am still 2 books behind schedule if I want to finish this challenge successfully this year!


What are you reading at the moment?

I wish you all a wonderful rest of your week.
I will catch up again on Friday with my FO for this week :)

P.S. I will be sharing this post with all of the lovely Wednesday ladies
