New Additions

WIP Wednesday

Finally, something new to share with you all :)

First off my regular WIP as of late - my Juliana:

Juliana Drops Baby Merino

I am halfway to the next armhole and then will be on the last stretch - and I mean stretch, of knitting!
At the moment it looks like a very long, odd looking scarf!
I still really like the pattern and if you look in the picture above you will see the great definition those dropped stitches give the piece (on the left they have been dropped already and on the right they will be dropped once I get to the next armhole)
I love the project but I guess I will only be making one of these, for as much fun as it is, it is a huge amount of knitting and it leaves me itching to get on to some other projects.

Which I happily oblige this week :)

This yummy package arrived for me yesterday:


And with that a whole lot of queued projects to start on ;)

Hubby's' wristlets are complete (Will share with you on Friday) and I have merrily chosen two new projects to start with this week.

Another surprise project for hubby - Tardis Socks

Drops Fabel

He and Jas are huge Dr. Who fans and I thought it would be a fun project to knit them each a pair of socks.
I have adjusted this pattern slightly so far as I really like a snug fit around the calf and so I have reduced the number of stitches I cast on.

I would have liked the blue to be a bit more blue, it looks more blue in the picture than it does in reality but I hope that with the other colour patterning it will all come together.

I am knitting this pattern in Drops Fabel.

Next - 

 I have been wanting to get back to my Craftsy courses for a while and with my yarn order I received my Drops Muskat that I have decided to use for my Broomstick Lace Rebel Cardie from the Craftsy course: Beyond Basic Broomstick Lace

The first project is a sunglasses case, and for this project I have chosen to use some Drops Cotton Merino.


Drops Cotton Merino

I can't wait to get going on this project and will be re-watching the course this evening :)

On the reading front things have changed too :D

I have finished "The Boy Who Went to War" and have started reading "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children"

So far I am enjoying the story.

How has your week been until now?

See you soon
