WIP report

Artichoke Socks – slow but steady. I’m almost finished with the heel flap.

Myrtle Leaf Shawl – another slow-but-steady. It’s hard to work on because of the dark yarn. The pattern isn’t that hard, but it’s patterning on both sides, so there’s no resting row. I’m including a nice flashy photo so you can get some vague idea of the pattern, but the color is better represented in the detail photo. I’ve decided it’s a midnight blue, but indoors, sometimes it looks more green than blue. (It’s Knitpicks Alpaca Cloud in “Midnight”.)

Alpine Scarf – hibernating until I get replacement needles for the ones that were confiscated at the airport. (Knitpicks order has been placed.) I’m cheating – this is an old photo. It’s a couple of inches larger now.

Tubey – hibernating until I buy some US8 DPNs. (Do we sense a theme here?) Needles are on same order as above. No photo of this one, because frankly, it just looks like a big brown turd at this point. (Hmmm. That should get me some interesting Google hits.)

Lacy Gloves – hibernating for the summer. No point in working on these now! I’ll get back to them towards the fall. If I get over my aversion to the giant thumb gusset issue.
