It’s certainly not Wednesday and I do know that despite the blurring of time that’s happening as we’re prepping for my sister’s wedding this weekend. But the camera disappeared yesterday and WIP Wednesday* is so much better than TIHF Thursday**.
*Work In Progress
**Things I Haven’t Finished
I’ve got one PS red project on the needles: Stulpen (scroll down for English), done top-down and with a hole instead of a thumb to minimize bulk when I’m writing on a table. I’m 2/3 of the way done the cable on the second and if I can get that done tonight, I should be able to auto-pilot myself through the rest of the ribbing before the end of the month. My sister’s wedding is this weekend, but if I can just get to a mindless part of the pattern I’m all set to finish these on time.
I think I did fingerless mitts the last time there was a red/pink phase of Project Spectrum. Probably mental suggestion: red = fire = warm fingers.
Yarn: Fleece Artist Basic Merino Socks

I’ve been slowly working along on this for the summer, the first sweater in pieces I’ve done in years. I love the simplicity of double moss stitch, and am really looking forward to having the simplicity of this cardigan to throw on in fall.
Pattern: Minimalist Cardigan, Interweave Knits
Yarn: Andean Silk in olive
A kicky pleated skirt from “Sew What: Skirts!” languishing because of an unusually cold summer. It’s hard to remember to work on it when there’s no weather in which to wear it. 8 months in a row of colder than average temperatures is starting to get old.
Also, I’ve discovered that I’m not a sewing gal by nature – you can’t cuddle with it on the couch while the family watches something and it’s noisy. I still like sewing. It’s just not something that works into my day easily.
All of this inspired by the parade of WIPs each week on GailV’s blog.
