WIP Wednesday - 2/6/2013

I know, I haven't posted in a few weeks!

I had been in and out for a bit. I was down in Orlando for the Disney Marathon weekend where I ran the half marathon and the first 10k of the full marathon for a weekend total of almost 20 miles. Yes, I was trying to do the Goofy Challenge which was to run both the half and full but technically, I shouldn't have been running any of it due to a strained glute/IT band so I'm happy with what I was able to do.

Then there was Vogue Knitting Live and I showed you the dress I had made.

Well, now, we're back the day to day so here is what I've got going on for projects.

I'm working on the Rock Island Shawl by Jared Flood. You start knitting the outer borders, then pick up along the edge of the border and knit in. The number of stitches is decreasing every couple of rows. I'm getting there, slowly but surely. This should be done before the month is through.

I also got some old fiber off the wheels (I'll show it to you on Friday) and moved onto the next Bullseye Bump from Loop!.

Finally, I've pulled out the sewing machine. You can see my sewing area here.

I'm currently working my way through the Charming Stars Quilt from the Moda Bake Shop. This is going to be the light blanket on my bed. The current blanket is way too warm for this weather and even though it's at or above freezing at night outside, I still need to have the ceiling fan on to keep me cool.
