Anne has been reporting her progress on up to three WIPs and stating up to three fibery goals on a one-week cycle, WIP Wednesdays. While I doubt I can post every Wednesday (I've already missed a few), it seems like a good practice to emulate.
The first Kureyon Sock Birch Leaf sock is almost finished. I'm loving the fancy toe, although I don't think I'll make it quite as pointed as in the pattern.
The first gray Embossed Leaves sock is also close to finished. I missed the December 31 deadline for November Sockdown, but don't feel too bad about it.
I've been in touch with my upstream and downstream pals [waving hi] for the No More Humdrum Mittens Swap 2 – all's well in this little corner of the swap universe. (Although... am I the only person who hears the faintest creepy echo of Joan Crawford?)
A bit of stash-diving produced this possible yarn pairing, Wildfoote Handpaint and St. Ives, which would yield easy-care, lightweight, durable mittens. Have yarn, will swatch.
My fibery goals for the coming week are:
- catch up on neglected blog stuff
- spin some
- finish the first Kureyon sock
As long as I'm showing off celadon blog buttons, Vicki revived the ABC-Along, this time with both a Flickr group and a Ravelry group. I'm a sucker for abecediaries and enjoyed -alonging last time, so signed up (sign ups open 'til January 19). I don't have an A of my own yet, but here's my fave of those in the pool.
